These ideas can be incorporated in the ultimate, once in a lifetime safari that we tailor just for you!

What makes Africa so special is its people. The wildlife is wonderful but it is the people that really shape the continent. One can travel to all corners of the globe, but one always misses the warmth and the broad smiles of the African people and their sense of infinite optimism.

It is impossible to travel to Tanzania or Kenya and not be struck by the vibrant red, white and blue blankets (shuka) of the Maasai, the strikingly etched faces of the Samburu or the regal profiles of the Somalis  or the friendliness of the  Malawians. Sadly, though, the bushmen of Botswana and Namibia are rapidly decreasing and we offer an opportunity to spend time with these wonderful, gentle, people and learn about them in an uncontrived manner.
