Jeffrey Ward

Safari Expert & Luxury Travel Escape Artist
You already know WHERE & WHY, but I'm the expert for HOW! Wanna book that luxury trip for less? Or use those frequent flier miles? Safari? I'll show you the way


Couples travel

African Safari honeymoons are totally my thing. I've sent many American couples on amazing safari honeymoons in both Southern and Eastern Africa.

LGBT travel

I'm gay, and while I don't necessarily enjoy gay-ghetto activities or groups, I can appreciate the needs of the gay and lesbian traveler, and the need to ensure that all destinations, lodging, restaurants,, etc. are welcoming. For many years, I organized and led high-end luxury gay groups on food and wine adventures in South Africa and Argentina.

Air travel

Former sales and marketing executive at American Airlines. Extremely astute collector and savvy user of frequent-flier miles for upgrades, business-class travel, & other perks. Knows the in's and out's of air travel better than anyone!


Founder and former owner of AfricanSafaris.com. Expert African Safari planner and resource. Very experienced safari enthusiast with lots of insider advice and tips on where to go, when to go, and how to get there. Specialize in luxury safaris, but can also do 3*. Sorry kids, no camping, backpacking, or any sort of roughing it.

Luxury travel

Not only do I know a ton about luxury travel, I know how to do it for less. As a matter of fact, that's my specialty. Four Seasons? Or Ritz Carlton? I have an opinion about them all.

United States

I live in New York City, so I have lots of insight into cool stuff to see, do, and eat here.

Southern Africa

I used to own an African Safari company, based in Cape Town. South Africa is an area of expertise for me, and I know tons about it I've traveled extensively in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and a little bit of Mozambique and Namibia.


I loved Buenos Aires and the wine region around Mendoza, and I've been visiting both areas for over 15 years.

East Africa

Tanzania is my specialty, but also know a fair bit about bot African Safaris and beach vacations in both areas.
