We are a group of people who love planning safaris. We've been doing it for over 25 years, and still get a thrill from planning out a really good safari that wow our travelers. And when they come back and tell us it was the best trip they have ever taken, it fuels us to meticulously plan the next great experience.
Bushtracks is owned and managed by David and Carolyn Tett. David was born and raised in Zimbabwe. Since their honeymoon in Africa in 1991, they have traveled to over 30 African countries, and well over 100 wildlife reserves and wild places.
We also have a tight team of excellent trip planners. As a group they have traveled all over Africa. They live and breathe African logistics every day. They listen carefully to our guests, then match them with the most appropriate safari lodges, activities, and experiences.
Although she's lived in Australia, Mexico and Italy, after her first trip to Africa, Lauren enthusiastically describes herself as a "self-appointed ambassador to Africa" urging everyone she knows to go and experience the natural world as it can only be done in Africa. With a background in international travel, Lauren is thrilled to offer guests a truly authentic safari experience where "you can see our 25 years' experience in every camp we pick."
Nicholas, like his brother David, was born in what is now Zimbabwe. He grew up and was educated there before going to the University of Bristol in England. Nick’s passion for Africa, its people, the wildlife and ecosystems developed at an early age from the wonderful experiences he enjoyed on remote family farms and cattle ranches and on the expeditions to some very wild places he was taken to by his grandfather, parents and school. Nick has worked in the African travel industry for over 25 years, visited almost all the best destinations on the continent and helped both David and Carolyn and the youngest Tett brother, Christopher, with the development of Bushtracks Expeditions and Bushtracks Africa. Based in London, Nicholas uses his understanding and extensive knowledge of Africa to help travelers from Britain and Europe design their itineraries while supported by the excellent research and efficient administrative teams in California.
