Welcome to the Grannies on Safari Web Site!   

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou

Two best friends - one a marketing executive retiring from a 31-year career with an international airline, the other an arts executive who worked with organizations and artists across the globe - combined their passion for travel, culture and connecting with people in distant lands to create Grannies on Safari®, an Emmy® award winning TV series.

The Grannies on Safari (GOS) series became reality when Regina Fraser and Pat Johnson funded the project to launch GOS in 2006.  Currently, GOS is shown on public television stations throughout the United States and it is syndicated by American Public Television World-Wide.  We are proud to announce our new partnership with RLTV (Cable Network) started running the GOS series in March 2016.

As an airline manager, Regina held various positions in infiight operations, corporate marketing, and communications. She was responsible for the production of a monthly video news magazine for the corporation and learned her television skills while in that position.  She also developed a cultural exchange program as part of the White House Millennium Council for the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs.  Regina has traveled to more than 70 countries, 48 states, and six continents.

Pat's life has been devoted to helping artists and arts organizations find their voices. She has led several arts organizations as well as the Chicago Artists International Program for 250 artists and arts administrators from 80 countries. Pat has had assignments and/or presented on arts issues in countries including India, Ghana, Senegal, China and Brazil. Pats has journeyed to more than 90 countries and six continents.
