Our safaris are designed
for active people of any age who are interested
in an in-depth safari experience. Our
safaris’ emphasis is on being close to the land,
close to the people and close to the culture, as
this is what a true African safari is all about.
For adventurous people, there are no
disadvantages to this approach, only advantages.
Although our safaris are comfortable and at
times “luxurious,” they are planned and designed
to emphasize the quality and depth of the
experience rather than simply to maximize
Our safaris, unless
otherwise specified, generally offer
accommodations in first-class lodges as well as
classic African camping in beautiful, wild and
pristine locations. Classic camping is in
full-size classic African tents, with beds, hot
showers and sit-down toilets. Transportation
will be primarily by well-equipped four-wheel
drive Land Rover or Land Cruiser safari
vehicles, with on-board radio communication.
Our safaris don’t end when
the sun goes down. In the tradition of African
hospitality, when camping, our camps are always open to dinner
guests and visitors. We often invite local
researchers and filmmakers working in the areas
we visit to join us to discuss their work and
adventures. We have shared many memorable
campfire chats with National Geographic
photographers, elephant researchers from Princeton University,
wildlife veterinarians from the Serengeti,
documentary filmmakers, lion researchers, hyena
researchers and lonely graduate student
researchers who welcome the opportunity to take
a break from their field work for a good meal
most of our clients, our safaris have been the
trip of a lifetime, however they are not for
everyone. Our group safaris are not standard
tour bus safaris, and we design them to appeal
even to those who are not fond of group trips.
We will take you to what we truly believe are
the most incredible places we know with the
time, budget and logistics we have available. Once
there we allow for and encourage individual
activities and interests. If
