Considering a safari in Africa? For years, Wittravel has partnered up with Origins Safari, providing unforgettable trips to travelers with a passion for wildlife and adventure. Wittravel’s owners, Christina and John, possess a deep love for Africa and are eager to recommend Origins’ tailor-made trips with our clients.

Origins Safaris first had their start as East African Ornithological Safaris back in the ’60s. The organization’s team of specialist ornithologist guides led birdwatching tours all over Kenya and Tanzania. Now, Origins organizes trips all over East and Central Africa. Picture yourself spending a day with the tribes of the Omo Delta, or photographing Mountain Gorillas at the Virunga Volcanoes. Chase the migration in a helicopter or rest up from that day’s safari in your private tented camp. Looking for somewhere special to spend your honeymoon? Why not join Origins Safaris for a week on the savannah, toasting your new life together over champagne as you admire your panoramic view of the stunning Great Rift Valley?

Whatever your niche, Origins can help you find it! Their expert guides lead unique, amazing trips that are specially tailored to your needs.

I think that I’ve always been in travel in one way or another.  I inherited wanderlust from my father – my earliest memories are taking road trips across the country, visiting all 48 states and nearly every Canadian province before I was out of grade school.  I’ve now had the opportunity to set foot on every continent but Antarctica.  My first job in the travel industry was working for a small agency in Walla Walla, Washington starting in 1978, then having the good fortune to be hired by Willamette International Travel when I moved to the Portland area in 1985 where I’ve been ever since.

When people ask me my favorite place, I generally say “the next one.”  That’s pretty much true – I love researching and exploring new places.  I have wonderful memories of just about every place I’ve been, but the standouts are East Africa and India.  I still have lots on my bucket list – Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar are definitely places I’d like to visit, along with some of the Eastern European countries I haven’t yet seen.
