Group sizes are usually under 16 in total, while some, such as our Kenya and Tanzania safaris, are limited to a maximum of 6 participants.



All of our African safaris and tours can be tailor-made to offer complete freedom of choice.

Popular Safari Destinations

Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

"In the heart of Central Africa, so high up that you shiver more than you sweat," wrote the eminent primatologist Dian Fossey, "are great, old volcanoes towering up almost 15,000 feet, and nearly covered with rich, green rainforest - the Virungas".

Fish River Canyon, Namibia

The second largest canyon in the world, the Fish River Canyon is 160 km long, up to 27 km at its widest, and almost 550 m at its deepest. The enormity and scale of this canyon and its landscape is breathtaking

Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana

Makgadikgadi Pans, covers approximately 10,000km² of the Kalahari. Its stark, flat, featureless terrain stretches – it would seem – to eternity, meeting and fusing with a milky-blue horizon.
