These AreThe Biggest Problems You Will Face Going On Safari As A 
Vegan

You are concerned about what you are going to eat while on safari. 
You are often in remote areas out in the bush where you cannot simply find another restaurant or grocery store with vegan options.

And to make things even worse, if the lodge has not catered ahead of time for you, asking for a vegan option at meal time becomes a nightmare. 

Often the staff don't even know the meaning of vegan and just end up removing all the Good parts of the traditional dishes they serve and you miss out on the culinary experience that non-vegans Get to indulge in by default- We fix That!
I am an ex airline Pilot. I had an amazing 16 year career doing what I love which is flying around south east Asia.

I was born in Namibia where I also started my flying career, flying tourist to some of the most amazing destinations around Southern Africa.

I wanted to find a way to transition from my airline job in Asia back to Africa. I have always had a dream of returning back to Africa, where I started my career and to have my own operation flying air safaris. 
When Covid 19 struck and my salary dropped 60% as the travel industry was hit, we saw this as a sign to take the opportunity as a family and move back to Africa.

With the pandemic causing havoc and disrupting many lives, we sensed that the whole world is changing, and that now is the time to explore a new destiny for ourselves.

Veganism is a foreign concept in many parts of Africa, so after traveling extensively as a vegan family, we knew that vegan Travellers like us are wanting to come on safari, but are not sure how to navigate the challenge
  • Plan In Advance: Check flights, dates and find a lodge that looks just perfect and can possibly cater to a vegan lifestyle.
  • Pack An Extra Bag: Fill it with vegan snacks and food just incase you cannot get vegan snacks.
  • Grab The Gear You Need: You'll need chargers, powerbanks, cameras and anything else to keep you connected and documenting your adventure.
  • Do More Planning And Packing: Think of the 100's of scenarios where a vegans needs will not be met and you're going to have to plan to supplement the shortcomings.
  • Prepare For Long Travel Times On Rough Roads: You're in the African wilderness, roads are unkept and lodges are spread wide apart.
  • Oh Look, Another Buck: Long trips become boring seeing the exact same animals and scenery.
  • Mad Rush At The Lodge: You spent most of your day travelling, now you have to rush when you get to the lodge to fit it all in.
  • Plan A Trip With Air Safaris 269: Check flights, choose from 14 of our incredible air safari packages.
  • Pack Your Bags: Grab your favourite Safari clothes, don't worry, our trips cater to vegans too, so no need to bring along 100's of different vegan products.
  • ​Just Grab The Gear You Need: Cameras, chargers and anything else you need to document your incredible trip
  • ​Scenic Flights That Maximise Your Down Time: Not only do you take in the majestic views from the air, you save time on travelling so you can spend more time where it counts, actually on Safari!
  • Sit Back And Relax: You're on Safari! Sit back, relax and enjoy all the delights and sights that aSafari has to offer, Air Safaris 269 has it all covered

Your Host, Pilot And Guide

JC De Klerk

Passenger Jet Pilot For 16 Years

I specialize in helping vegan travelers be able to go on a safari holiday stress free.

If you want to know more about vegan safaris, find out how it's possible to go on Safari as a vegan, or if you want to know someone is out there to help you with your safari itinerary then I can help you.

I am an ex-airline Pilot. I have had an amazing 25 year career doing what I love which is flying around Africa and South East Asia.

I was born in Namibia where I also started my flying career, flying tourists to some of the most amazing destinations around Southern Africa. 
In parallel to my airline career while living in the east I managed a safari consultancy introducing Asia to Africa.

I have always had a dream of returning to Africa, where I started my career. The dream was to have my own operation with the vision and opportunity to serve vegan travellers.

When Covid 19 struck in 2020, we sensed that the whole world is changing and that now is the time to explore a new destiny for ourselves and be part of the change. 
We saw this as a sign to take the opportunity as a family and move back to Cape Town, South Africa.

Veganism is still a foreign concept in many parts of Africa, so after traveling extensively as a vegan family, we knew that vegan travellers like us are wanting to come on safari but are not sure how to navigate the challenge.
We Launched our first 11-day Vegan flying Safari around stunning Namibia in the middle of the pandemic during October 2021.
 
We know the challenges you will face, so for you to go on a Safari Holiday stress free you need someone you can count on when it comes to traveling as a vegan.

There are so many beautiful areas in Southern Africa, and I would like to invite you to book a trip with me so that I can show you some of my favourite places in Namibia and Botswana.

I look forward to welcoming you on African shores to tick off that bucket list item to come on an African Safari.
