Your invitation to Africa's Best Hand-Picked Private Luxury Mobile Tented Safari Camps

A private luxury mobile safari allows one complete flexibility, privacy and exclusivity. It is the perfect way of undertaking a family safari in Africa, cementing and bonding existing relationships, which are affected by the day to day ebb and flow of normal work or study life. In our opinion, it is unsurpassed in terms of capturing the true adventure and spirit of the original safaris taken by Hemingway and Finch-Hatton in the early 20th century. To be able to sleep at night with the wind wafting through the gauze windows, or to listen to the lions roaring in the distance, marking their territories, or sleep to the sound of zebra grazing next to your tent or a leopard rasping close by. These are experiences that only can be appreciated in a tented camp. In the morning, the dawn chorus of bird song greets you, together with the smell of wild sage on the morning dew. To sit around the fire at night, catching up with the day, asking questions about what you have seen and discussing the answers and possibilities together.

One also learns all about one’s guide and their own experiences and cultural differences. You build and develop and amazing rapport with them. Then, to be able to sit out together around an open fire at night, looking out at the stars and discussing the solar system and the night sky in the southern hemisphere, is simply wonderful. It is these, with a myriad of other experience which make a private mobile so very memorable and irreplaceable. Karen Blixen famously wrote ‘Camping places fix themselves in your mind as if you had spent long periods of your life in them. You will remember a curve of your wagon track in the grass of the plain, like the features of a friend’ – a great truism!
