We are excited to share our continent and offer access to our inside knowledge; including the hidden gems of this wonderful world, as we create your bespoke itinerary. We place a high emphasis on communication and begin your journey by getting to know you. We'll start with a brief chat to understand what you desire and wish to see, experience or feel.
Allow us to find the right destination, the right camp and the right experience, then carefully intertwine these to give you a seamless, yet extremely rewarding itinerary.
We are passionate about Africa; its people and wildlife and driven to ensure your trip will exceed expectations. We have over thirty years of experience in managing, guiding and travelling to high-end luxury safari camps in remote locations. We have travelled and continue to visit the continent extensively, and regularly to bring our knowledge and excitement to all of our bespoke itineraries.
As well as the passion and knowledge we bring, we are specialists in bespoke journeys, for those looking for escapism, adventure, travel with purpose or for inspiration and/or family safaris that offer peace of mind, body and soul in remarkable destinations. We use camps, owners and operators who actively adopt sustainable practices to protect community, land and the natural world. You won’t pay more to use our services and have our personal connections and knowledge at hand throughout your journey.
All of our safari itineraries are pieced together based upon our extensive real-life experience and first-hand knowledge of the very best camps, attentive owners and sustainable operators whom we know and trust to provide a dream trip based on your intimate desires. Together with our meticulous planning, you can be sure your trip will match and exceed your wants and desires.
What Our Clients Say
As a professional photographer, I have travelled all over the world, and I always like to pick agents who know the location, weather, and who have a clear understanding of what I want to achieve. I have employed Deon over eight times in South Africa and Botswana, and his local knowledge is second to none. As a highly regarded photographer and guide himself, he is excellent in sourcing locations and finding the wildlife. Deon’s organisational skills ensure all the transport to different camps run like clockwork, even down to knowing the amount of equipment I will be bringing and booking an extra seat on the plane to accommodate this. While on location, safety for his clients is paramount while also keeping a watchful eye on conservation and, of course, the wellbeing of the wildlife.Chris Perrett | United Kingdom
