Experience!

We are seasoned in planning family vacations for groups large and small. Our founder has travelled extensively for the last 15 years in Africa and has a large network and employee team on location.

Insider Knoweldge!

When you call and email, you are working directly with folks that have travelled the region, experienced the culture and know the accommodations and activities. We provide expert insider knowledge.

Customizable Trips!

We listen to your family vacation goals and offer you our recommendation on what will fit best. We’ve handled large and small groups, different activities, and different budgets.

Be it a week or 3 weeks, options for safari accommodation range from basic, self catering up to the 5 star expectations of any well-heeled traveler.

Opportunities for exclusive use properties are plentiful, as well, should the group be interested. The endangered Mountain Gorilla trek offers an intimate glimpse into this animal’s life and behavior and a the opportunity to witness one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls, is always worth serious consideration. And most any safari is well complimented with a visit to the coastal regions before heading home.
