Our Team

African Family Safaris creates safe family adventures to the most spectacular wilderness and wildlife areas of Africa.

Each safari is tailored to the needs of your family. We get to know you and your family through face-to-face meetings, phone calls and /or skype conversations. Finding out as much as possible about what makes your family unique allows us to create an individually tailored and exclusive safari that will captivate everyone.

AFS was founded in 2014 by Richard Field, one of Africa’s finest safari guides. Over the last two decades he has led thousands of safaris. He decided to focus specifically on safari's for families for one main reason. He knows all too well that an African safari offers not only the ultimate wildlife adventure, but also the best opportunity for families to connect in an uncontrived, pure and genuine way through incredible shared experiences. Having a young family himself, he also understands that any trip you take with your family is immediately precious – you are living the memories your family will feed off for decades, and you are creating connections and intimacy that will last into the future, so he is committed to making it perfect.

Richard tailors every AFS itinerary and cares deeply that your family safari will be all that you have ever dreamed of and so much more.
