safariFrank share the complete beauty, history and magnitude of Africa.

“Having lived, worked and travelled extensively throughout Africa over the last decade I honestly thought I knew everything about safaris and wildlife on the Dark Continent. Spending a week in the bush with Johan and Frank made me realise there’s so much more to learn when it comes to understanding the beauty, history and magnitude of Southern Africa. From the years they’ve spent there as a family, their complete understanding of the wildlife – how to track and see it, the landscapes – how to explore and enjoy them, and the culture – how to immerse yourself in every aspect of it, is shared in a friendly, personal and adventurous way.”

Outstanding – I highly recommend!

This is to confirm that we have travelled extensively through Sth Africa, Botswana, Namibia on two separate occasions with the Steenhuisen group. Each of these trips has been extensive both in time spent in these countries and the planning that took place. We enjoyed both trips immensely and the planning and research and knowledge of each area by the Steenhuisens was outstanding. I would highly recommend this group to anyone who wishes to see these countries in a relaxed atmosphere with safety and knowledge from the guides in the forefront plus, above all… having fun !!”

Absolutely priceless. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

“The African “bush” experience is one on which you can place no value other than priceless. Integral to that experience is the passion and knowledge that comes from deep understanding and time in the game. Johan and his team are blessed with all the required elements. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”

One of the best adventures of my life!

“My decision for making the Field Guide Level 1 course was very spontanous and I booked it only a few weeks before it started, but safariFRANK provided me with everything I needed. I felt in very good hands at all times! All my questions were answered immidiately and very kindly. Thank you guys so much for paving my way to my chance to become a Field Guide!! I will come back to you, when it comes to book my Trails Guide course 🙂 It was one of the best adventures of my life!!!!”

Wonderful TRUE bush experience. Thanks a million!

“Jenny and I, visited South Africa with Johan and Welna in July 2013. The trip was a wonderful TRUE bush experience and the evenings were the highlight! Night viewing provided such a range of high level exposure to Hyenas, Leopards, Buffalo, Elephant and Lion. The chest wrenching sound of the mature male Lion’s full roar right next to us, will always be etched in the memory banks! Naturally this experience is predicated on one’s hosts having a fundamental affiliation with this environment. Our bush experiences with Johan and Welna have always been spectacular. Thanks a million and good luck with your ventures.”

Why choose safariFRANK?

We’re born and bred africans and seasoned safariers.

We’re born and bred Africans and seasoned ‘Safariers’. We’re conservationists, educators, storytellers and fiercely independent. safariFRANK want to show fellow travellers how African locals safari. Heading into the African bush, walking, canoeing, on horseback, by bike and sometimes in 4×4’s. And if you were wondering… yes, there actually is a Frank.

We have feet in Australia, Germany and Africa

Born and bred in Africa, and with feet also planted firmly in Australia and Germany, we have a passion for these continents. Meet with a local in Australia or connect via Skype to plan your Safari… and be met by Frank in Africa to introduce you to his land. We own a piece of African wilderness and invest in Africa too.

We’re fiercely independent

We are not influenced or skewed by hidden commercial arrangements or extravagant commissions with luxury operators. We know that a ‘real experience is not necessarily an expensive experience’, and often less is more.
