I am Ian Proctor. I caught the travel bug as a child in Seattle visiting family in Hawaii, Denmark & California. Over the years I have visited many other destinations including South America, Mexico, Canada, & the Caribbean but it was Africa that stole my heart when I was 21. I knew it would become my life and it has. After living in both Tanzania & Zimbabwe (where I worked / went to university) I am now fortunate to share my travel experiences each day as a safari consultant at Ultimate Africa Safaris, a Seattle based travel agency opened in 1996. We specialize in high quality, high end, customized safaris for discerning clients. Over the past 18 years I have personally stayed at 250+ hotel / lodge / camp properties in east & southern Africa (many of them numerous times) & inspected hundreds more! I spend over 2 months of each & every year in Africa; not only to insure that each property meets our client's standards, but also because I am hooked - I love Africa and its wild areas!
