Safari experts you can trust.
Hi, we are Margaux and Hylton; a dynamic husband and wife duo, professional safari guides, tour operators, ground handlers, and lovers of the bush and all things safari-related. We are dedicated to bringing dream safaris to life and doing our bit through sustainable ecotourism to leave this continent better than how we found her.
“To us, a safari is more than just coming to Africa to see animals. It's about sharing a life-changing experience that will make you yearn to come back again and again. As true nature conservationists and safari enthusiasts, we take great care to make your safari dreams a reality while supporting conservation initiatives and community development programs that give back to the area.” - Hylton & Margaux Langley, owners of Hylton Langley Safaris.
We are a specialist safari travel company with over 40 years of collective experience in the industry. This has given us the ability and skills to understand the complex workings of the lodges and the areas we explore, as well as a greater understanding of the logistics and planning involved in getting you there.

As we place a strong focus on designing curated travel experiences, it is important that our safaris begin with trust and forming relationships, which often last for decades to come. Reach out today. We’re the answer to your next adventure!
Meet the team
As the founder of Hylton Langley Safaris, and with more than 21 years of experience in the hospitality and tourism industry, Hylton is the all-rounder with a great interest in the history of Southern Africa, the cultures of the different peoples and an unquenchable love for the African bush. Being fluent in both English and Swedish, he has personally planned, hosted, and guided hundreds of guests on numerous adventurous safaris throughout Africa’s wilderness areas.
Margaux’s career has taken on many trajectories - all inspired by her love and passion for people, wildlife, and conservation - from conducting the annual Kruger National Park lion census to training prospective guides at guide schools, to guiding guests at prestigious safari lodges such as Tswalu in the Kalahari and Singita in the Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand Reserves.
Through more than a decade of industry experience, Margaux’s hard work and diligence were duly noted when she was nominated as a participant in the Annual Field Guides Association of Southern Africa’s Safari Guide of the Year competition 2019. As the only female competing, she was a runner-up in the competition, and she won three categories.
Margaux will not only be able to offer great advice with regard to the planning process but also through her hands-on approach, she is very capable of ensuring that your safari dreams will not only be realized but that they will be exceeded on every level.
As professional safari guides and tour operators, we understand your safari wishes from our initial meeting, and because we plan, host and guide you throughout the duration of your trip, we can guarantee a stress-free travel experience. Simply relax, sit back, and we take care of the rest.
We are passionately driven to promote and protect wilderness areas through education and economic upliftment of surrounding local communities. We use our knowledge and skills about sustainable tourism practices to promote lodges and organizations that are actively involved in ethical conservation projects.
