About

Tailored Expeditions

Anderson Expeditions is a specialist travel company arranging tailor-made, private safaris and expeditions into Africa and South America.

Anderson Expeditions

We take enormous pride in counting the majority of our guests as repeat travellers. One of the key reasons for this, we believe, is a result of having developed a real understanding of our guests preferred expedition style – for example their specific interests, lodges and camps they feel most comfortable in, and even the way they like their Gin and Tonics poured!

Obviously this is something that takes time to develop but we place a huge emphasis on gaining as much knowledge about our new guests as quickly as possible, enabling us to develop the perfect itinerary for every individual.

Drawing on our expertise and experiences we will design a tailored itinerary for you – best countries, regions, lodges, guides etc. – based on your unique requirements and interests.

An expedition or safari can be privately guided for the duration of the trip or you can choose to travel independently using our recommended local guides in each destination.

Why Anderson Expeditions

Our service to you

  • Because you want to get into some of the greatest wilderness spaces on the planet and experience a safari or expedition of a lifetime – watch the great migration cross the Mara river, scan Andean peaks for a Condor or watch a leopard lazing in a tree.
  • A personalised and private travel experience – we don’t operate set-departure trips or standard tours. Every expedition is designed to meet the expectations of and fulfill the specific interests and needs of our guests. We have never arranged two identical expeditions.
  • We use only the best guides, lodges, camps and ground operating teams with, very importantly, the best people. We pride ourselves on the relationships we’ve built with our partners and this allows us to deliver the exceptional experiences our guests are there for.

  • We have travelled to every location and lodge we include in our itineraries and have personally lived the experiences we share with you.  We are bush-lovers and adventure seekers and approach the design of our guests’ expeditions from that perspective, first and foremost.
  • We choose locations and lodges based on our clients’ specific needs only. We do not enter into incentive agreements with any operators.

Our Team

Passion and Experience

Richard Anderson

Richard Anderson

Having spent the past 15 years guiding and travelling extensively in both Africa and South America, Richard is passionate about taking these extraordinary places to his many return guests and first time visitors. He relishes time spent designing unique itineraries and experiences and is steadfast in maintaining the precedent that no Anderson Expeditions itinerary has been travelled more than once!

When not in the AE office Richard can be found exploring new and exciting destinations to add to the Anderson Expeditions portfolio, or bringing a remote part of Africa or South America alive to his guests – canoeing in the Okavango Delta, tekking through the Andes to Machu Picchu, watching the great migration in the Serengeti or sharing a moment with a mountain gorilla in Rwanda.

Lynn Haslam

Lynn fell in love with Africa soon after starting in the operations and marketing departments of a leading lodge operator in Botswana.

She travelled extensively in both Botswana and South Africa and was soon planning guest itineraries to these countries and beyond. Lynn then joined Wilderness Safaris which took her to all corners of the southern African region on multiple adventures – canoeing down the mighty Zambezi river on the Mana canoe trail, visiting one of the worlds 7 wonders – the Victoria Falls, journeying through Botswana on a mobile tented safari, sunset dining on a remote Skeleton Coast beach in Namibia and snorkelling in the Seychelles.

After having known Richard for a number of years Lynn then joined Anderson Expeditions to design itineraries and run the travel operations. Building on her expertise in southern Africa and the Seychelles, Lynn has subsequently travelled to East Africa and South America.

Gareth Hardres-Williams

A life in travel began for Gareth after university.  Following wanderings around Europe, he took himself off to the Sabi Sands near the Kruger National Park in South Africa and began work as a guide at Londolozi Private Game Reserve.
It was whilst guiding at Londolozi that he excelled at the “gentle game drive” and where he realised the value of a fully immersive safari experience.  Gareth left Londolozi  after a number of years of guiding to follow his other passion and work in the wine cellars of the world.  Following harvest jobs in South Africa, France and California, he qualified as a winemaker with a degree in oenology and spent time working in the world of wine.  An ever-present interest in conservation saw him transition to work for the World Wide Fund for Nature on a wine industry based conservation initiative.

Travel remained a passion for Gareth, with explorations of Africa, Europe and the Americas continuing throughout, until a return to the business of safari and travel happened after the birth of his daughter.  Gareth works with Richard and Lynn to manage the travel needs of Anderson Expedition guests and helps to tell all the stories of travel across a variety of media.
