I have known the founder/director of Son Safaris for 10 years. Since the very beginning of our friendship, I have seen a passion for this ministry unlike anything I have ever seen. Fledge does an incredible job of bringing the majestic land of Africa, a place where most people can only imagine, to life. Through his stories, pictures, and experiences, you really feel like you are there. Now take all of that, and throw in the word of God, and you have one of the most unique and memorable messages you have ever heard. Fledges passion for Son Safaris stems solely from his passion for Jesus Christ. He wants everyone to know Christ, and he does an amazing job at using his experiences to share this message with anyone and everyone. There really isn't a better resource to tap into that your own life experiences, and that is exactly what Fledge does. I have had the honor of seeing Son Safaris from the very beginning. What was once in a tiny room under the stairs in a garage, has now exploded and is now international. God is doing incredible things through Son Safaris, and it is amazing to see. I would recommend this unique ministry to anyone.

Son Safaris is an amazing organization doing great works! The Founder/Director, Fledge, is incredibly passionate about his work and his faith. This organization is doing great things to help South Africa along with sharing the wonderful news of Jesus Christ. Those working hard alongside Fledge are able to experience first-hand the value of giving back and helping those in need. I cannot say enough good things about this organization and would urge anyone looking to get involved with a nonprofit that is truly making a difference to choose Son Safaris.

Son Safaris is one of the most unique Christian ministries/ non profit organizations out there today. Director Fledge Fiamingo is skilled at creating metaphors and parallels between nature and biblical truths. If you are looking to share the love of Christ through missions, Son Safaris is absolutely a great choice.

Son Safaris does fantastic work! The work they do in South Africa greatly benefits those they encounter. It also benefits the people that go on their trips. As a campus minister, I have been thrilled to see the transformation in my students that have gone with Fledge to South Africa. They come back more aware of the world around them and hungry to serve God by loving the people they encounter.
Additionally, Fledge is a dynamic speaker. He led a weekend retreat for our ministry. His multi-media presentation, application of safari life to our spiritual life, and amazing stories from his time in South Africa captivated my students. If you are looking for a retreat speaker, look no further than Fledge.

I have had the pleasure over the past six years of Son Safaris donating their time, money and expertise to help conservation and under privileged people from all walks of life. Son Safaris teams lead by Fledge Fiamingo have helped many people to understand what amazing people with or without money can do when they are dedicated and passionate. Fledge and his teams who have visited our operations in both Botswana and South Africa, have given us all a new perspective on life and have show that there are such amazing, caring people out there in the world. No matter where I work, I will also endeavor to get Son Safaris to follow me to my new place of work, they bring such an amazing opportunity for our organisations to help and assist local underprivileged communities through hard work, passion and love... Son Safaris missions to Africa are a life changing experience for everyone involved and would certainly be a memory that the volunteer on the mission and everyone they meet and help will never forget. Fledge you and your mission teams have changed the lives of so many people, never stop.

I had the pleasure of being a member of a mission team this past summer. 2 weeks in South Africa, what an amazing trip! We did so many different things, and all the people on our team found roles in which their talents really shined. I really hope I get the chance to go on a mission with them again sometime soon.

Recently Son Safaris brought a group of college students to our children's home. They spent 5 days doing back breaking labor and playing with our children. They were an awesome group of people, who loved on our children and worked hard on some projects we needed done. We would welcome this organization any time in the future.

I just came back from a trip with Son Safaris. This is an amazing Christian non-profit. We as team members had the unique opportunity to work on conservation projects on a game reserve as well as help at children's homes. We were able to show Christ's love in so many unique ways. Fledge is so good at making you feel safe and as prepared as possible. I loved every minute of it and can't wait to go back.

Son Safaris began as a dream in Fledge Fiamingo's heart in 2003 and became a non-profit corporation in 2009. We provide inspiration and encouragement through multimedia presentations conducted by former South African Park Ranger Fledge Fiamingo. But this is just the tip of the iceberg of what Son Safaris' is all about! Knowing first hand the plight of many in Africa Fledge plans to provide for their needs in a unique way: leading safaris coupled with mission and humanitarian work in a local village. The goal is to establish a lodge where locals can work and from which those who come for safaris will also work with the locals on alleviating problems of poverty of body and spirit.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen the changed lives of those who have participated in Son Safaris events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add about a dozen staff members who are fully funded to make the dream of an African lodge and mission come true quicker.
