Journey

your Safari

your way

If you have dreamed of going to Africa- then you will have an idea of what it is that you want to see and do. We will work with you through the process to ensure that your dreams do come true.

Planning the logistics of an African safari can be daunting at the best of times. Whether you are a safari rookie or a seasoned traveller, getting the right mix for your trip and pulling it all together will result in the ultimate safari. Our aim is that its not just a holiday, but a transformational experience that will stay with you forever.

This is where our expertise will save your invaluable time and ensure you get the best bang for your buck with reputable and reliable operators.

You may want to go on a particular safari where you can ride horses in the Okavango or watch the migration in the Serengeti, there are so many options and details to think of and that is where we come into play.

With our depth of knowledge and experience in Africa we take it very seriously to ensure your trip is bang on and just right for you- Your Safari-Your Way.

We call it arm chair travel, from the moment you step off the plane in Africa right through until you depart back home, there will be someone looking out for you. We work with ground operators wherever you are travelling to and at no point will you not know what is happening next.

The safaris we plan are low stress and relaxed – all you have to do is sit back and soak up the many moments.

The options are vast and when we first meet with you we will discuss in detail what type of safari you are looking for.  Whether you are after an active and intrepid journey climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, mountain biking through Namibia, or prefer to just kick back and enjoy wildlife viewing with a g & t in hand, or anything in-between – we will make it happen for you.

Tailor-made

We know that there is no such thing as one size fits all, especially when it comes to safaris. Everyone has different interests, budgets and schedules, so this is where a custom made safari is ideal. It puts you in control of where you want to go and what you want to see, which gives you the flexibility and control you need, but also ensures we design Your Safari – Your Way.

With our help you choose your route, camps and lodges, and we’ll put the pieces of the puzzle together to make the journey work. The best part of planning a tailor-made safari is selecting the areas and lodges to stay in. We work with a number of Safari partners to ensure that we have plenty of options for everyone to help create a unique experience at each different area and lodge you visit.

Mobile

Mobile Safari’s are about the thrill of the chase and adventure. They offer the freedom to move to the best locations, following the game to hidden, unexplored corners, and all in the company of an exceptional guide, who will be with you throughout your safari. You are camping amongst the wild life and able to lie at night listening to the sound of hyenas in the distance or the roar of a lion as it lets everyone know he is around. You are also first on the scene for the morning game drive, following fresh tracks and unfolding the stories of what happened overnight.

Mobile Safari camps are set up in different locations to suit your pace and interests; The accommodation is in traditional Meru-style tents that exude old fashioned charm, along with comfortable bedding, cool cotton sheets and hot showers on demand. This is real adventure, in unreal style!

Family

Taking our family on safari has been life changing and simply the best, so of course we want everyone to experience the same thing. There really isn’t anything better than seeing the bush through young eyes for the very first time. What they see and discover is so different to what we do, and sharing family moments like that is priceless, it sure beats the classroom any day!

Recently inter-generational safaris have become extremely popular and this is where true family bonding takes place. In 2016 we took our family and my then 78 year old father on safari through Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. The delight in all of our eyes as we sat watching lions or spent hours in a hide in Savuti with hundreds of elephants literally a few feet away from us was priceless. The laughs we have as we recall the many magical moments is heart warming and has created a lifetime of memories for us all.

No devices, no wifi and no everyday stresses – just time to sit back, live in the moment and enjoy each others company.

Family safaris do require a little more planning to ensure that the children are well looked after with plenty to do. The little extras can make all the difference to everyones experience as lets face it, mum and dad want a great relaxing safari too. There are many family friendly camps, lodges and hotels in Africa to suit everyones needs.

Privately Guided

You may have had a dream when you were young and this is your chance to make it come true. Whether you are interested in photography, fishing, birding, flora and fauna- we can plan Your Safari – Your Way. This can be for both individuals and families or groups, there is something for everyone.

We know and work with a small group of highly experienced guides that love nothing better than to share their experience and knowledge of Africa.

This can be the icing on the cake for some, as you have the same guide for your entire safari, you get to know them well and form a tight bond. They impart their incredible knowledge with you and give you continuity between lodges. They sweat the small stuff so you don’t have to!
