Meet Andrew WagnerIf Safari means “to journey", then Safaria is Andrew’s own personal journey. Andrew’s story is one that he shares openly and to many a deep source of inspiration and partial madness.Regarded today as one of the most sought after Private Safari Guides in the Kruger National Park, Andrew’s past however was entirely different. Having left University Andrew first went on to spend 17 years working for international corporate organisations such as DaimlerChrysler, Mercedes-Benz, Avis, Barloworld and TBWA. It was at the height of his career that he decided to give it all up.
Andrew’s real gift though is storytelling. Honed from years of presentations in the boardroom, Andrew has developed this skill into his personal touch and uses it to share all his knowledge and experience. Referred to as having an “Attenborough like ability” by some of his clients, he continues to push the conventional boundaries of guiding to ensure that guests have the best experience possible. Pioneering a Premium Day Safari, Andrew offers guests what one typically would find in private luxury lodges. He was the first to offer clients finer touches like Wifi and Sightings Journals but was also the first to fit Nespresso Coffee machines to his safari vehicles (like in the whole world). He sets avery high standard for Safaria and works hard to ensure that guests get far more than the typical “Kruger Park Tour”. This is just the beginning for Safaria and Andrew and there is lots more to come.You can follow Andrew on Instragam @ AndyWags_
