Safari purists will tell you that you need to put your feet on Africa's soil, and to exclude distractions such as a vehicle. To walk with a qualified, armed guide and tracker is sensational. You'll learn about tracking, spoor, and so much more.

We love Rhino Walking Safaris, a private concession in Kruger. You'll walk daily and enjoy game drives - a prefect combo. The tour includes local flights from Johannesburg.

Wildlife Treasures ...... 7 - 12 days ........ from US$ 4,775 pp

Legend has it that Kruger buried his gold so that the English colonists would not get their hands on it. To this day it has not been found. But the real treasure? It lives wild and free as nature intended, and to see it this close up is priceless.

Experience different safari lodges in at least two top locations within the greater Kruger region, where the game viewing and hospitality is consistently excellent.

Fine Wine and Wildlife ...... 10 days ...... US$ 5,995 pp

South Africa has been producing luscious wines for 350 years. Enjoy 5 nights in Cape Town at a Raffles-style colonial hotel below Table mountain, and 4 nights at a superb luxury safari Lodge adjacent to the famed Kruger.

This is our perfect Big 5 safari & Cape Town combo - elegant, relaxed, fun. Two local flights are included in this all-inclusive safari package.

Simply Safari ...... 11 days ...... US$ 7,425 pp

To get into the true spirit of safari life, go big. Big spaces, big skies, endless vistas. Botswana fits the bill perfectly. We give you pure safari, in true comfort. From Joburg it's a round trip: the Big 5 in Kruger; Victoria Falls; Chobe and the Okavango Delta.

The tour includes 5 local flights, of which 2 are lodge tranfers in Botswana. Full board with activities throughout, except in Victoria Falls (B&B).

Africa Spectacular ...... 14 days ...... US$ 7,995 pp

This safari has it all. Cape Town's Table Mountain, a top private safari in Kruger Park, Victoria Falls, elephant-rich Chobe and Botswana's Okavango Delta. This is Africa, and it is truly spectacular.

For the young at heart, this tour satisfies on many levels: cultural excursions, iconic wildlife, top wilderness destinations, and a blockbuster waterfall. Unforgettable.

Pure safari. Pure experience. Luxury redefined. Treat yourself to a guided safari by one of Africa's legendary safari guides (see our Safari Guides page). You'll join a very small, select group - or bring your own group!

Feedback and reviews after these tours reveal a sense of profound joy and soul 'refreshment'. These tell their own story, far more eloquently than we can.

Karen Blixen's Africa ...... 30 days ...... Price on request

example graphic

Baroness Blixen, who penned the beautiful "Out of Africa", had a love of Africa's landscape and appreciation of its peoples that inspired this great classic, her living legacy to our continent. Spend a month getting to know her beloved land, and more.

Experience her Africa from above and below, as she did; its vast open savannas, a rare Rift Valley, the warm and pristine coast. We can co-author a chapter in your life that's pure magic.
