Expertise and Team Dedication at Indigo Safaris

“At Indigo Safaris, our wealth of firsthand knowledge, our network of service providers, and our trusted suppliers ensure unforgettable travel experiences. Christopher brings extensive firsthand experience from living, working, and exploring regions across southern and eastern Africa, Oceania, Indonesia, and South America. Having stayed in diverse accommodations and worked independently, he crafts tailored trips to meet diverse needs. Our selected lodges, hotels, dive centers, safari operators, trekking guides, and vehicle rental companies are meticulously vetted and approved. Each of our partners is affiliated with their respective country’s tourism organizations.

Our Journey and Team:

Indigo Safaris specializes in bespoke and packaged travel experiences across Africa. Founder Christopher Bartlett’s passion for Africa ignited during a journey to Namibia in 1997. After relocating to KwaZulu Natal in 2005, he immersed himself as a safari and underwater guide, blending his skills in photography and writing. This led to extensive assignments in East Africa for diving publications, further enriching his destination knowledge.

Returning to the UK in 2009, Christopher combined his love for Africa with organizational prowess to establish Indigo Safaris. In 2015, he encountered Ines Moosmann during an educational trip to Uganda, recognizing her professionalism and inviting her to join as Senior Safari Consultant. Ines, with over sixteen years of experience in the travel industry, brings expertise in African lodges and camps, along with insights from her global adventures.

Matthew O’Brien, who joined in 2019, shares his exceptional knowledge of Southern Africa from his guiding experiences in Namibia and Botswana. His passion for sharing narratives with clients enriches their journey.

In 2022, Kerry became part of our Cape Town team, bringing five years of guiding experience in South Africa and Namibia, complemented by 16 years of crafting itineraries across Southern and Eastern Africa. Kerry’s attention to detail and passion for exceeding client expectations resonates through her work.

In early 2023, Matthew Milward joined with six years of safari expertise, shaped by his travels worldwide and across Africa. Michele Addison, a veteran of the tourism industry, enhances our team with over 20 years of experience spanning diverse African regions. Her deep-rooted love for Africa’s wildlife and people fuels her dedication to curating exceptional safari experiences for our clients.”
