Life Changing Tailored Safaris and Holidays to Africa


Extraordinary journeys for extraordinary people

No Two Journeys Have Ever Been The Same

We are the only exclusive tailor made safari company in Europe that is entirely owned and staffed by people who have spent their lives being brought up in Africa. We know, watch and understand the seasons and the effect that these have on the movement of wildlife– something which cannot be gleaned on a 2-week research trip to a country. We specialise in providing only the very best in unique, bespoke safaris and holidays to Africa, whether for a couple, family or larger group of friends.

Extraordinary Occasions

When we reach certain milestones or have special occasions to celebrate, we occasionally search for places that we have yearned to visit in which to mark such a momentous event. We have arranged parties, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and family reunions for many of our clients in Africa, India, Bhutan and South America.

Private Travel

We have so many requests these days for a family or group of friends to have exclusivity and privacy. A private safari to Africa can mean private villas, private houses, a luxury, private, mobile tented camp erected just for your party in a wildlife-rich region, a private yacht or boat, or taking over a camp or lodge in the bush.

Walking Safari

A walking safari is the most exhilarating way of experiencing a safari in Africa as one gets so much closer to wildlife without the noise of an engine. Of course there is a degree of vulnerability which heightens the senses but this is a good thing! How often is one called upon to use those senses today? Everything is so much more immediate – from analysing the urgent bark of a baboon, to the strong scent left by a predator or an elephant or simply enjoying the early morning smells of the sage plant, fresh from the first dew.

Luxury Kenya Safari

A luxury Kenya safari is something that many people dream of! The world is divided by those who love wildlife and really want to get up close and personal. This means to sleep in a tented camp, listening to the amazing night calls of the whooping hyaena or a lion calling to its mate in the distance, or defending its territory. With the wind blowing gently through the gauze windows, one sleeps so soundly!
