It takes more than one setback to stop Leora Rothschild from doing what she loves. After Rothschild’s previous employer, a safari company, went belly-up in 1998, the native South African saw an opportunity on the horizon. She decided to start her own business — Rothschild Safaris — using the knowledge she had gained from previous work with luxury safari operators.
Personal touch is everything at Rothschild Safaris, due in large part to the extensive knowledge each employee has of Africa. The company always has someone traveling through the continent at any given time, and guides keep up to date with the latest lodges and operators. They then leverage their personal travel experiences to craft the best itineraries for clients.
“From day one, everything we’ve done is based on firsthand experience,” Rothschild said. “While our clients are booking high-end travel in Africa and beyond, we never sell on price alone. For us, it’s all about creating the best possible experiences and crafting custom itineraries that are totally unique for each and every client.”
