Luxury Safari

Safari travel is no longer the rocky terrain, rugged SUVs and canvas tents we remember from yesteryear. The “African Safari” has evolved to include world-class hospitality, exquisite décor, gourmet style dining, fine wines and lavish accommodation options. Expect warm personal service, an intimate and romantic setting, cultural enrichment and quality comforts while soaking up the scenic natural beauty of the African wilderness. See, do and taste so much more! Luxury is no longer reserved ONLY for city or island style vacations.

Think top of the range. Splurge on fly-in safaris and hot air ballooning. Indulge in 5 star tented camps on the banks of the Mara River or secluded treehouses in Kruger National Park. What’s not to love?

Not only are we safari experts, we specialize in luxury travel. Let our experts design your exclusive once-in-a-lifetime luxury safari experience.

Travel Tips

Inquire about the spa facilities at you lodge of choice. Imagine enjoying a view of the mighty Zambezi river from your deck, while enjoying a traditional African Stick massage
Most parks and reserves are well served by local flights. Surrounding lodges and hotels will manage your transfers to and from nearby airports and airstrips
Consider driving yourself. Roads in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana are relatively well maintained and well-marked. Enjoy the scenery with quaint stops along the way
Travelling in Green Season will allow for vibrant green scenery, dramatic sunsets and fewer travelers. The dry winter months can be uncomfortably dusty
By booking the services of a private guide you will enjoy a more personalized experience. You will be hosted for the duration of your trip by an expert on the ground
With internet connectivity limited at remote bush camps, take a good book and revel in the quiet
