Legendary Customer Service

I've got a big kuddos to Ranger Buck Safaris for creating an unforgettable experience for my family. Whether it was the last minute charity requests to Soweto. Or a shark dive and securing a chopper to make it happen. Or having Christo Brand (Mandela's Warden) give us a private tour of Robben Island. Or organising a massive Rhino conservancy experience. Or organising private charter flights to make all the above happen without any friction. As Hemingway said "If I've ever seen magic, it has been in Africa." And that's how I feel about Archie and his support team. They just don't believe in saying no... and the more I tested them, the more they relished the challenge. It was an incredible experience and legendary customer service. #wechoosegratitude #rangerbuck

Dedicated to Conservation

We are staunch advocates of the conservation of Africa’s precious natural wildlife and would love to share our conservation experiences with you. Ranger Buck Safaris offers intimate, hands-on conservation experiences, allowing you to be a part of the work that goes into protecting some of Africa’s most magnificent animals. As part of the ecosafari experience, Ranger Buck Safaris believes in educating people about the importance of conservation, and does so in a way that does not itself damage what it is trying to protect. That is why all of our safaris take care to be as undisruptive to animals and nature as possible, while still delivering intimate wildlife experiences.

We are signatories to the SATSA prescribed Animal Interaction Charter and commit to abide by the ethical approach adopted in the Charter. Ranger Buck Safaris refuses to compromise on animal welfare, and constantly works to protect the beautiful environments and animals we are lucky enough to share with our clients.

We offer once in a lifetime experiences

Community Participation

We support Ekukhanyeni Relief Project.

Ranger Buck Safaris supports Ekukhanyeni Relief Project, a not-for-profit organisation that creates thriving communities by providing quality education through early learning and skills development.

Ekukhanyeni Relief Project champions poverty alleviation and sustainable community
development through complementary community-based programmes. These programmes
improve the capacity of marginalised and poor communities in urban and informal settlement
environments to provide effective early childhood care and education to its children. It also
targets the local adult support network, and works to achieve and sustain food and nutrition
security in these communities.

The project’s values align with those of our own ecosafari and wildlife experiences, of long-term
sustainability and paying things forward, and we are proud to support them.

Faultless experience

I arranged a visit to Kapama at very short notice, the service from Lindsay was exceptional with everything taken care of quickly and efficiently. The Safari was my first and the whole experience from being collected at the airport was faultless, the lodge was a very high standard, the guides were incredibly knowledgeable and really cared about making sure we had a great time seeing as many animals as possible, including all of the ‘Big 5’

Thank you Ranger Buck.

Amongst The Best We Have Ever Experienced

“We had a most interesting and informative time at Lion Sands River Lodge. It really is a lovely “modern” lodge – the architecture combines a little of the usual “bush” lodge but the real focus is on clean lines and letting in as much light and views as possible. The staff were excellent, and the rangers simply superb – amongst the best we have ever experienced. Thank you very much for arranging this trip for us – we will be sure to recommend you to others!”

- Andrew


Absolutely Everything Was Just Mind Blowing

“That was unbelievable. Absolutely every aspect of the trip was unreal. Moses, our guide, was incredible. Everything, absolutely everything was just mind blowing. I was so taken aback. The gorillas were obviously the number one priority but I was just so impressed with Rwanda, the people, just everything, everything was brilliant, thank you so much.”
