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.
We have the finest selection of villas and bush houses in Africa and we can assist you with the very best lodges or camps for your party as we have visited and know intimately all the very best camps in Africa.
On a private African safari, with a mobile tented camp, one has a private vehicle and guide too. Stay in wonderful, comfortable, old-world style tents with all the comforts that you expect as well as those that come as a lovely surprise!
Private vehicles are we feel, really important – especially for our clients who are interested in photography, or simply who like their own space – such as we do! This means one can spend as long as possible at any sighting, without having to return to the lodge for set meals and interrupting your sightings. It also means that, should you be interested in birdlife, or spending time with sightings that interest you, you don’t have to take into consideration all the other travellers in the vehicle!
A private safari guide and private vehicle will transform your experience from every point of view. They offer continuity of your safari, they smooth over any wide balls that Africa may throw at you and of course, they will concentrate on any of your interests. Most are extremely good photographers and can assist you with your photography, too.
A guide allows you complete flexibility and freedom of your days and has an infinite resource ofknowledge to enrich your luxury safari. They are excellent company and have some wonderful anecdotes too. They can either accompany you to your chosen lodge or they can guide you at your private tented mobile camps. This means that you dictate the pace of your own safari.
We also have the very best walking guides who not only protect you, but share the living world with you – from detailing every bird to learning the medicinal properties of trees and plants and the insects and how they fit into our fragile ecosystem. For parties of four or more, a private guide is worth every penny.
Finally, it also means private charter flights in Africa which means that you can spend the maximum amount of time at your chosen places and most importantly, you fly directly, as quickly as possible, everywhere.
In addition to our Private Travel, we also offer a Premium Service for all of our clients.
