“Our staff are part of our family.” says Betty Jean Hunt, Managing Director of Safari Limited. “..we work together, we train on new systems together, and will always find the best rate for the customer within the Thrifty system.”

“Each one of our team will go to great lengths to carefully answer customers questions about hotels, lodges, roads, trails, attractions, and finding good value services amongst those diverse and smiling Belizean faces” says Paul Hunt Chairman of the local licensee company. “Even people staying on the Cayes to fish and dive can fly into the mainland for the day and see a little of the inland before catching the evening air taxi back to San Pedro or Caye Caulker.”
