Ngoko Safaris is a niche tour operator specializing in safaris in Africa. We can of course arrange your beach extension or stay in Cape Town but it is safaris we are serious about.

Co-founder of Ngoko is Benson Siyawareva who is one of Africa’s top guides, although he is too modest to accept this accolade. With an infectious laugh and an encyclopedic knowledge of the flora and fauna he is a wonderful person to lead your safari, should you choose to have a private guide.

The other half of the Ngoko team is Fiona Thompson, based in the UK. Fiona will handle your booking from the initial enquiry to after your return from Africa. We are a very small team and proud of it. We offer a highly personal service to our guests and often form lifelong friendships.

Our service is totally flexible and tailor-made to suit your individual requirements and preferences. We don’t have sales people working on commission – it is all about you, what will give you the experience of a lifetime.

We specialize in bespoke Safari packages in the following countries


South Africa

When you are ready to start planning your safari drop Fiona an email, telephone us or Skype and we will be delighted to start working with you on your bespoke itinerary.



We can often put together last minute safaris but if you want the camps and dates of your choice we recommend you begin planning at least a year in advance, particularly for Botswana.
