Safari is a journey, a constant and intense adventure in search of flavors, rituals, products, techniques and ideas. It is a culinary brand that designs and creates gastronomic concepts. Each idea we offer is the result of a process that blends the dignity of traditions and the endemic value of ingredients.
Born in 2015 with the Safari Campfire Tulum project after Chef Luis Aguilar found a vintage Airstream from 1971 that became "the kitchen" of his own restaurant. This is how he begins a journey through the integration of the Mayan culture with his own style inspired by the unique touches of the jungle and fire.
With temperament and a clear tendency to honor the customs and value of each ingredient, Safari culinary asserts the definition of "sauce" by creating its own "Salsa Madre"; Today, the brand expanded its product line with its classic chaya and beet tortillas.
Currently Safari continues to be a pioneer in the culinary offer of the Tulum area, expanding its inspiration in the Yucatan peninsula with Safari Comedor in the Aldea Zama neighborhood.
