Your dream is to go to Africa; it’s a significant investment of time and money for most. Based upon real-life experience and first-hand knowledge of the African continent we create bespoke journeys for those looking for “travel with purpose”, individual and family safaris that offer peace of mind, body and soul in remarkable destinations. We take time to plan your trip and as African travel specialists, we have substantial working knowledge of safaris and wildlife reserves and countries on the African continent. This is all critical to your holiday’s success.

Our tailored itineraries ensure smooth, hassle-free travel. We iron out the complicated and only offer what we have personally experienced or proven to be safe, excellent and well-thought-out through our network of trade partners and industry experts – many of whom are personal friends and ex-colleagues.

It is the little things and substantial knowledge we bring to the table; those will make your travels, comfortable, enjoyable and spectacularly memorable every time.

We are passionate about sharing our knowledge about the continent we love and enabling our clients to experience the best of it. We aim to not only create fabulous, cost-effective bespoke itineraries but to make every part of your journey, including the planning, both seamless and fun.
