Sikeleli Safaris create a perfectly bespoke safari experience
When I knew I wanted to visit Zimbabwe for a safari experience and to see the magnificent Victoria Falls I knew I had to contact African Safari specialists Sikeleli Travel and Expeditions. They came highly recommended by friends in Zimbabwe and were superb from start to finish. They were extremely efficient at organising the entire trip which included 3 hotels/bush camps/lodges, flights and transfers via Wild Horizons Victoria Falls (who were also excellent). Everything ran like clockwork and they fulfilled all our requests and hopes for the trip and surpassed our expectations. Sikeleli were so wonderful, friendly and knowledgable I will definitely be using them again for my next trip and would highly recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Africa or anywhere else. They are a family-owned business that specializes in individually-tailored luxury safaris in Africa and experiential travel worldwide.
Sikeleli’s professionalism, their deep roots in Africa and their expertise in creating exclusive safari experiences assure you an incredible safari experience!
The Ponter family founded Sikeleli in 2014 with the desire to deliver a truly authentic travel safari experience, starting with Safari, to friends and guests. From these roots, the company has developed three offices in Vancouver, BC, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, and Cape Town, South Africa.
One of the founders of Siekleli is Daniella Ponter, born and raised in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe, Danni was essentially ‘born on safari’ where her love of conservation, wildlife and a passion for travel was also born.
With over 11 years of experience, being the GM for an extraordinary 5 star safari lodge in Zambia, to marketing some of the world’s most most authentic, remote, wild luxury safari lodges in Southern Africa, Danni has seen the luxury travel industry from all different facets and brings that wealth of knowledge and information to her well-travelled team and to her guests very detailed, handcrafted itineraries.
Although Zimbabwe is their first love, the Sikeleli Travel Expert team have a intricate and in-depth knowledge of South Africa, Zambia, Malawi, Botswana, Nambia, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania and all of Southern and East Africa, having all spent a lot of time traveling to these places to learn the logistics, safari lodges, operators and more to carry over knowledge to their guests.
