Who are Go Untamed?
Unlike many commercial tour operators, when you book with Go Untamed, you will be touring with the guys that both run this website and own Go Untamed. It's our baby! We care about it!
We want you to be able to recommend us to others and want to come on safari with us again. With this in mind, we focus more on your adventure, and endeavour to avoid the mundane and frustrating experiences which you often get with larger companies. We know! We've experienced them!
So, if you are looking to AVOID a crowded bus ride through a commercialised tourist mecca, Go Untamed!
Meet your Guides!
Passionate, experienced and adventurous.

In 2019, Go Untamed welcomed the newest member of its team - Tiger.
Chief of Security, Stock Controller, and Manager of Outstanding Debt. Tiger runs base-camp while we're out in the wild. He's also much better at front of house, than he is in front of wandering elephants. He's also our first "honorary staff member for life". Yes, that's a thing.
Go Untamed was in the midst of training a couple of new guys, who we found roaming wildly around Malawi.
With the intense training over, they would have been ready to venture out with guests in 2020.
However, 2020 turned out to be a rather difficult year to do anything. They aren't working for Go Untamed just yet. We will have to wait to see what the rest of the year throws up before making plans.
The mysterious new guys...
Cheers to 2020!
We are prepared to give you an extraordinary safari where other tourists don't venture.
