With nearly three decades of experience, Briggs has the knowledge and clout to arrange dream journeys across the continent, whether that’s a trip to new lodges like KuKaya and Lolebezi, both in Zambia, or a classic gorilla trekking itinerary in Rwanda, or the less-trafficked routes of Mount Kilimanjaro. Giving back is a focus for Briggs, and she often helps clients connect with established nonprofits during their travels.

Briggs often advises her clients that spending more on a safari is less about the en-suite amenities and more about access to the absolute best natural areas and wildlife viewing—and routinely sends travelers to places with both.

“The Nxamaseri Island Lodge has had a recent rebuild and refurbishment and is located in the best fly-fishing area of Botswana,” she advises. “And Usangu Expeditions Camp, in Tanzania’s Ruaha National Park, is a new, authentic, and adventurous camp built for those who love walking.”
