The annual Safari Awards, sponsored by the Good Safari Guide, are more about excellence than just being 'very good' or 'better than most'. All lodges and operations nominated must adhere to the following criteria:-

  • the property/operation must be located in a wildlife reserve (national or private), or within at most an hour's travel from extensive wildlife (game, bird or marine life), and must not be located in a city or a large town
  • the property/operation must offer wildlife viewing excursions, whether big game or marine wildlife tourism viewing
  • the property/operation must feasibly be part of the 'safari circuit'- somewhere visitors will stay as part of their safari holiday
  • the property/operation can be anywhere in the world, not just Africa
  • the property/operation must not offer guided hunting excursions
