No Two Journeys Have Ever Been The Same

We specialise in luxury tailor made safaris and holidays to the most beautiful parts of the world; providing experiences that will stay with you forever. Our expertise spans four continents, offering truly unique journeys in over forty countries around the globe.

What makes us different?

From the outset we have always been involved in philanthropy and in particular Philanthropic Travel, supporting deserving, usually small, “sharp-end” conservation and community projects since our inception in 1989.

The problem, however, is the overwhelming potential scope and, at the same time, making sure that promises are turned into reality. Our inchoate new offshoot, Philanthropy Plus, gives individuals who are eager to reconnect and help those less fortunate than themselves the opportunity to do just that as a core feature of their travel plans: thus travelling to - and directly experiencing as part of their holiday, safari or vacation – places and projects where they may be directly able to help.
