WHO WE ARE
Founded by Clint Saint, Live Life African Safari Getaways mission is to share the love and passion for the land, culture and wildlife of Africa. It is truly our joy to share authentic Africa, the way it's meant to be.
After ten years of working in the travel and hospitality industry, his career led him to the USA where Clint met his wife Lisa, and settled in North Carolina. Upon sharing the beauty of Africa with his wife, he realized his passion for sharing his knowledge and inside experiences of Africa with others and realized the benefit for not only the clients and safaris guests but also the return effect on the cultures and villages in Africa.
"Live Life" is a phrase that was continually emphasized growing up by Clint's late father, Graeme Saint. Graeme lost his fight with cancer at the age of fifty-two and his message of travel and exploration, as well as his mentality of living each day to the fullest are the staples of what this company was built on. These principles are the core of our business and help us strive to provide our clients with unique and personalized experiences in Africa that will last for a lifetime.
Our team has grown over the years and we feel incredibly lucky to have each member as they all play an integral role in making your African dream experience unforgettable and as comfortable as possible.
We look forward to meeting you, discussing your travel goals and customizing your experience while maintaining your expectations, special interests and budget considerations.

"All we can say is wow! What an amazing trip that Clint and Live Life African Safari's planned for us. We had the privilege of traveling with Clint on a 17 day vacation and everything was top notch. From the safari's at Xobega and Tuskers to the Floreal House and Oyster Box, Clint took care of every detail and he went out of the way to make sure our vacation was personalized to what we wanted to experience. The hike along the Wild Coast was absolutely breath taking and I am so happy Clint suggested we see this part of South Africa. During the whole process, Clint became a friend and we can't wait to travel back to Africa with him one day. By far the best vacation we have ever taken. Once you go, you will forever be a different person."
