AFRICAN SAFARIS & WILDLIFE ADVENTURES

Scroll

Immersive, personalised adventures in the land where it all began. 

Safari. In Swahili, it means “long journey.” And with these breath-taking trips, we’ve brought safari back to its adventurous and thrill-seeking origins.

After all, we work from the assumption that a safari will mean many things to many different people. We’re not prescriptive or restrictive. No, we’re here to help you design your perfect wilderness escape, whether you want to trek to the gorillas of Rwanda or witness the spectacle of the Great Migration. Tell us your obsessions, your dreams and your passions, and we’ll do the rest.

Ultimately, these are truly tailored trips executed with flair, fun and flourish. Nothing is presumed. Least of all you.

Sweet Dreams

On safari, the accommodations is integral to the overall experience – particularly when your accommodations gets you up close and personal with the animal kingdom. That’s why we’ve listed the main types of accommodations you can experience during your African adventure and from these we’re confident that one or a combination will suit you.

What’s more, we have incredibly close relationships with every property we use. We’ve stayed there. We love it. And we know you’ll love it too.


Types of safari

If safari is about encountering animals in the wild, then it’s also true that there’s no single way to ‘do’ a safari. From river pack rafting to hot air balloon, there exists a world of options to choose from. Stick with one or mix and match to your heart’s content.

CONSERVATION & GIVING BACK

Many of the lodges we work with are incredibly conscientious when it comes to sustainability, conservation and people. And this isn’t simply about saying empty words or ticking boxes, but about things you can really see and do during your time away.

Join an anti-poaching patrol through Loisaba Conservancy, Kenya. Participate in the work of the Giraffe Research Foundation of Hoanib Valley in Namibia. Track and identify unrecorded rhino in Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa. And that’s only a sample.
