About Phill Steffny Safaris

It’s exciting to see the doors of opportunity opening up for professional safari guiding. Typically, the career path for lodge-based guides is relatively short-lived, as it can be tricky to continue once family responsibilities arise. Many guides who choose to remain in the bush abandon their true passion of guiding, and take the road towards management, which seldom works for the majority, whose true vocation lies elsewhere. Having experienced this for myself, I can honestly agree that a guide belongs in the bush, doing what he or she loves! A career in professional guiding offers a lifetime of living and working in some of the most amazing wildlife hotspots across Africa. During my many years in this environment, I’ve built lasting relationships with some of the most well-established safari companies and lodges, and gained first-hand experience throughout our continent’s prime wilderness areas. This has enabled me to embark on a personal journey as a professional private guide. Phill Steffny Safaris is all about passionate, enthusiastic and energetic wildlife guiding - whether it be photography, birding, tracking or simply interpreting the wilderness for my guests. Regardless of who I’m guiding, or where we find ourselves, I strive for the ultimate guiding experience, and always seek to exceed expectations. For guests, an undeniable benefit of choosing the privately guided option is having a professional, knowledgeable person with them at all times to manage the safari, and to ensure that the entire experience runs smoothly, particularly from a logistical point of view. This is Africa, after all, and it’s inevitable that things might occasionally differ from original plans! With a private guide to smooth things over, guests can really sit back, relax, and enjoy themselves to the full, which is precisely what a vacation of any kind is all about.
