Tauck Directors & Peace of Mind
The Best in the Business
Our Tauck Directors make all the difference in a Tauck safari experience. Averaging 10 years of service, they’re much more than tour directors; they’re the world’s best traveling companions. They’re with you from the beginning of your African vacation to the end, adeptly handling all day-to-day details and logistics, while enthusiastically sharing their deep knowledge of the places you visit, the local culture, and the amazing wildlife. Their approach is creative; expect pleasant surprises, great stories, and impromptu adventures along the way.
We Enlighten You with Exclusive Material
On our safari journeys, Tauck Directors present exclusive films custom-made for Tauck by natural history experts about the wildlife you see and the regions you explore; the films and the stimulating conversations they inspire take you beyond just observing the animals – you come to understand them. Tauck Directors also use and share special tech equipment in the field to uncover a wide array of wildlife behavior. Your safari might feature FLIR® thermal imaging cameras, camera traps, night vision goggles for night safaris, or sensitive microphones that capture far-off wildlife sounds.

If the Unexpected Happens…
As every globetrotter knows, part of the magic of travel is the unexpected experiences you may have along the way.

Your safety is always our first priority, and we strive to preserve your guest experience as close as possible to original plans.
