About Safari Company
Safari Company, founded by Ronit Hershkovitz more than 20 years ago, has acquired vast experience in customizing trips to numerous destinations throughout the African continent. Over the years, Ronit and her team have tailored unforgettable getaways for thousands, building on their intimate familiarity with the most exquisite areas and unique sites. When we recommend a specific walking tour, it is because we have walked the same trail before. When we recommend a lodge with a bathtub overlooking the magnificent scenery, it is based on our own personal familiarity with that particular experience. When we recommend breathtaking observation points, it is because they have taken our breath away.
The adventures we plan include traditional safaris, sailing safaris and glamping – five-star camping. Our hand-picked guides will lead you through magical days, ending at a variety of carefully selected accommodations – mobile camps, tented camps, farm houses and luxury lodges. With us, you will also enjoy world-renowned wonders such as majestic Victoria Falls, visit local tribes, relax on sun-swept, white sand beaches, and much, much more.
We at Safari Company are forever on the lookout for new exceptional sites and exciting activities, to offer our clients an increasing range of unique experiences. Furthermore, we visit our local suppliers regularly to ensure that they continue to maintain our high standards of quality and service.

About Ronit Hershkovitz
Ronit’s connection with Africa began in the early 1990s, when as a promising and well-known businesswoman in the tourism industry she led popular trips to Kenya and to the Seychelles islands. Accepting the invitation of two Tanzanian ministers that she met on one of her trips, Ronit visited the country and immediately fell in love with it.
Soon after, she began organizing trips and charter flights to the island of Zanzibar, playing an important role in the development of the island’s tourism sector. A meeting with the President of Zanzibar paved the way to the renewal of diplomatic relations between the State of Israel and the United Republic of Tanzania. Several years later, Ronit was appointed Honorary Consul of Tanzania to Israel for more than a decade, in recognition of her extensive activities in support of Tanzania and its citizens. She presently serves as the Honorary Consul of Zambia to the State of Israel.
Ronit continues her diplomatic activities and her humanitarian and social efforts alongside her work as CEO of Safari Company and as an expert specializing in customized trips to Africa.
