About us

The formation of Untamed Safaris came with a simple and clear goal - to provide our clients with incredible customer service, the most in-depth expertise and, of course, unbeatable value for money. It is our mission to ensure that your African safari is a truly life-changing experience and exactly right for you, tailored and designed perfectly to your specific tastes and budget.  We are deeply in love with Africa, and nothing excites us more than helping others experience this incredible continent. 

To achieve this goal, Untamed Safaris is not built like your traditional travel business, we don't try to do it all. We are unapologetically specialised in a small number of African countries to ensure that we are genuine experts and laser-focused on delivering you the best value for money by leveraging our expertise and buying power.

The world is an incredible place waiting to be explored. If it's your time to explore Africa, choose experience, expertise, and a specialist who lives and breathes Africa.

Ryan Kendall On A Game Drive in South Africa

Ryan Kendall

Owner / Founder

Ryan is a passionate traveller, most happy when exploring remote wilderness areas around the world. On his first game drive in Africa many years ago,  he knew instantly that his life path had changed. He had fallen in love with the African continent, its people and wildlife. Since that moment, Ryan has dedicated his professional career to selling and handcrafting Africa itineraries for thousands of clients. Having visited the Africa 15 times his product knowledge is second to none. An avid hiker and snowboarder, any time spent in nature is where he is at his happiest. Favourite destinations include the Okavango Delta, Damaraland and Victoria Falls. As for favourite wildlife, it has to be lions, always, 'when sitting with a pride of lions, time tends to slow, and trivialities evaporate. You can literally feel their magnetism and power.'

Christine is an explorer at heart with an impressive country count of 73. Having visited six of the seven continents, there are not too many places she hasn't been. Christine has travelled extensively through South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. 

Her favourite wilderness to explore is the Sabi Sands Game Reserve for its mix of incredible lodges and the chance to spot her favourite animal, the leopard. 'No one does hospitality like the lodges of the Sabi Sands. They have created a certain magic not easily found when travelling.'
