“The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa…For he has so much to look forward to” – Richard Mullin
The Gourmet kosher safaris group had its humble beginnings in 2001 as Rabbi Yoni Isaacson’s owner-run brand “Africa Kosher Safaris” and fast became famous as the leading name in luxury kosher eco-tourism.
Our creed is to offer the kosher traveler the unique opportunity to experience some of the most unforgettable wildlife-rich, scenic, and cultural travel destinations in the world, all whilst enjoying top quality kosher cuisine, prepared fresh on site under the strictest kashrut supervision, a policy that has earned us a network of loyal clients who simply wouldn’t travel anymore without GKS.

BEST OF SOUTHERN AFRICA
Our signature “Best of Southern Africa “ package combines top-rate safari experiences with world-class scenic highlights including Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities on the planet, and Victoria Falls, one of the seven wonders of nature
Off-road game viewing, in private reserves that share an open border with the world-famous Kruger National Park, allows for a superior safari and luxurious lodging experience, while still enjoying the huge animal numbers and diversity of the Kruger Park ecosystem.
This winning combination of wildlife and scenery makes this our most popular package to date, run for 18 years under our founding brand “Africa Kosher Safaris/AKS.”
Our unique “Great Migrations” tour takes us deep into East Africa to the famous “Land of The Lion King” and the “Rolls Royce of game reserves” – Tanzania’s world-renowned Serengeti National Park.
The Serengeti National Park is a Tanzanian national park in the Serengeti ecosystem in the Mara and Simiyu regions. It is famous for its annual migration of over 1.5 million white-bearded (or brindled) wildebeest and 250,000 zebra and for its numerous Nile crocodile and honey badger.
The remarkable herds of animals that migrate around this region by far outnumbers anything of it’s kind on the planet. Those few who are lucky enough to witness this spectacle can testify to what a life-changing experience it is.
With GKS, most of our safari will be spent in the Serengeti itself, as well as in the famous Ngorongoro Crater to the south, enjoying what is truly the greatest wildlife show on earth, and some spectacular scenery along the way, all in magnificent luxury hotels with our famous freshly prepared gourmet kosher cuisine.
Without any doubt this exclusive Tour can be described as the “pinnacle” of Safari offerings!
