The very first thing we do it listen to your plans, thoughts and requirements.
Whether you are researching Africa for the first time, or are an experienced Africa traveller, the first thing we want to do is hear your thoughts and requirements. Once we have an understanding of what you are looking for, we can begin to offer relevant expert advice and make suitable suggestions.
The options in Africa these days are almost endless, and we can recommend a very wide range of experiences, from adventurous tented safaris and active adventures to luxurious safari experiences and beach lodges.
We genuinely tailor-make each holiday, starting with a ‘blank canvas’. Of course we will ask where you are interested to visit, and logistical questions such as who is travelling, how long you wish to travel for and how much you would be looking to spend. But of equal importance will be a number of more detailed considerations as follows:
- Your interests and priorities when it comes to wildlife viewing
- How adventurous or luxurious you would like your accommodation to be
- How relaxing (or busy) you would like your holiday to be
- How much travelling you are happy to do
- How social or private you prefer to be on holiday
- How active you wish to be on safari
- How important aspects such personal service, good food, exclusivity or specialist guiding is to you.
If you are planning your first safari and are not entirely sure what your requirements are, then we can guide you through the options and help you decide what will work for you. For example, we can describe in detail the different accommodation options on safari, including the practical considerations such as safety and facilities, and we can talk you through the logistics of going on safari – a typical day on safari, how activities tend to operate and what the travel options are when moving between safari regions. If you haven’t already taken a look, our All About Safaris section, covers everything you may want to know about going on safari!
In addition to dedicated tailor-made ‘wildlife safaris’, we also specialise in more general self-drive holidays through South Africa and Namibia, as well as beach holidays to wonderful places such Mauritius, Mozambique, Zanzibar and The Seychelles. It is easily possible to combine a wildlife safari with other interests such as walking and trekking, snorkelling and scuba diving, cultural experiences, horse-riding, sight-seeing or simply relaxing somewhere tranquil and beautiful. Our Special Interest section covers everything from climbing Kilimanjaro and quad-biking in the Kalahari to whale-watching, botany and battlefield tours in South Africa.
