WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?

“TAKE ONLY MEMORIES, LEAVE ONLY FOOTPRINTS.”



Africa is filled with breathtaking scenery and rewarding wildlife encounters. Her imposing landscapes, the feeling of her soil underfoot, and the dusty smell of the African bush is a feast for the senses. The energy of this magical continent will seep into your soul and create a love affair that will last forever.

Being the second largest continent, deciding where to begin exploring can be overwhelming. We are passionate about travel in Africa and about creating enriching Luxury African vacations for you. We are born and bred in Africa and have travelled extensively throughout her countries. We march to the beat of Africa’s drum and go out of our way to share our advice about when, where and how to experience this majestic continent. Once you have decided it’s time for your own African adventure, we will guide you and help you to plan the ultimate experience.


ABOUT US


Live 4 Africa.com is an independent company that is privately-owned by Gelle Ritchie who began her travel industry career in 2003. With our carefully selected business partners and suppliers, we tailor-make your Luxury African Vacation according to your specific travel needs. We also help you to choose the most suitable Luxury Africa Safari.

We only work with the most reliable, professional, honest and outstanding luxury suppliers across Africa. Based on years of planning tailor-made safaris and an understanding of your personal preferences, we recommend destinations and experiences we know you’ll enjoy. We don’t own lodges, hotels or transfer companies, which means we’re free to recommend what’s best for you.

Our advice includes sound recommendations about the infrastructure and culture of the African destination you choose. We regularly travel on educational trips across southern and East Africa, and never recommend a destination we wouldn’t visit ourselves. We also link a complicated series of local and international flights, transfers, luxury hotels and lodges, as well as activities from different suppliers, which we weave together to create a seamless luxury Africa itinerary just for you. We take care of every detail – your flights, luxury accommodation, transfers and curated day tours – so that all you need to do is arrive and relax. We have a 24-hour emergency contact number that you can call any time before and during your travels should you need our assistance.

Africa, and particularly being on safari, runs in Gelle Ritchie’s blood. And because she lives, eats and breathes safaris, Gelle has never been able to create a customized itinerary that doesn’t include safari time. Live 4 Africa.com was born because of Gelle’s passion for the bush – for the safari life – and going above and beyond to create the ultimate personalized luxury safari experience is what keeps travelers coming back for more of our outstanding African encounters.

Once you have decided it’s time for your own African adventure, we will guide you and help you to plan the ultimate experience.
We look forward in welcoming you to Africa.
