Moments of great joy ...

Let your inner wild child out to play.

It's exhilarating, it's liberating; it's safari life! There is great joy to be found in Africa's wild places. The sort of joy that washes over you when you experience a thing of great beauty. You ... here. Can you see it?

Isn't she lovely? A treasure chest of sights and and sounds awaits. And while you enjoy through these gems of nature, we'll make sure you're in the best digs in the best reserve areas.

We help you realise your dream journey.

Meet your new best friends: your game ranger and his trusted tracker. At all of our preferred lodges, in all our preferred reserves, this is the team that keeps you safe, unwraps the best possible wildlife viewing, and makes every safari day fun and interesting.

We know how important this team is on your safari.

What are the next steps?

First, work out a time of year that suits you. We always recommend booking well in advance. Why? Well, be aware that safari lodges are mostly very small, from 6 to 20 rooms only, so they fill up fast.

Next, decide on your style of safari. Do you want a no-fuss sort of safari, or is top-end more your style? Or perhaps something in between: touches of luxury in the good value bracket? Let us know. We have some winners up our sleeve.

Can't decide who should book the tour of your dreams for you? We would always recommend going to a local ie. a team that knows how things work, locally. Just in case.

Not sure how much to spend on all this? Like everything else, on safari you'll get what you pay for. Not sure who's an honest agent? Look at those with a track record, and then go with your gut. You'll be fine.

Feel free to contact us. We can chat, advise, direct, and recommend. Our aim is to create something entirely magical for you; it's what we do.
