Luxury African Safaris
The word ‘safari’ derives from the Swahili word ‘journey.’ We journey deep into the wilderness via 4X4 Jeeps as well as on foot. Our walking tours are led by authentic Massai warriors with knowledge that spans centuries. Alternatively, you may wish to see a birds-eye view of the creatures from a hot-air balloon before returning to your very own luxurious treehouse underneath a canopy of brilliant stars.
We’ve formed strong relationships with the very best local guides, safari camps and lodges, where an elephant might walk right by your window, so you can be sure your African one is unforgettable. We’ve put together a range of tours depending on your preferences, whether that’s a private, or small group tour, we have you covered.
