WHO ARE WE
Moriti Safaris offers custom-made safaris for people wanting an authentic, stress-free adventure. The company has been operating since 2011 in Kruger National Park and our owner, Shaun Taylor is one of the pioneers within the private guiding sector there. Over the years, Moriti has expanded and it is now a pleasure to plan adventures for guests all over Sub-Saharan Africa in amazing places like Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Rwanda. All our guides are experts in their fields. This means you always get the best service whether you are on or off safari. We LOVE Africa!
Moriti purposefully stays small and owner run. Shaun has learnt, from experience, that the bigger a company gets, the further away from the original core values you get. This is not an option for him and Moriti’s core values will always remain number one. These core values are simple:
- Passion for Africa
- Passion for our industry
- Passion for the true essence of a safari
- Passion for experience over profit
Close your eyes, now imagine – the sun beating down on you, the smell of wild sage, the distinctive call of the go-away bird in the background, wild animals roam free… You’ve made it, you’re in Africa!
Hi there, my name is Shaun Taylor. Ever since I saw the movie Crocodile Dundee I have dreamed of one-day taking people into the middle of the bush. I wanted to let them experience, not just a safari, but a spiritual awakening. I personally guide safaris all over Greater Kruger Park. I can proudly say I now offer guests an opportunity to completely remove themselves from the stresses and expectations of the modern world. My passion spilled over into Africa and I now host and guide guests in Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Rwanda which is a boyhood dream of mine!
Once I finished school I spent a few years training and have varied qualifications from lodge management to guiding, snake handling and walking. I am also qualified in first aid and have had experience in trauma situations.
The only thing that can overshadow my love for the bush is my family. I am married to Andrea, my high school sweetheart and have two kids, Olivia and Jonathan who teach me something new about primates every day.
