As we find ourselves adjusting to a new norm, our team has been in camps serving as guardians of wildlife, patrolling the lands on foot, and keeping busy with safari games. 

Trade, modes of transport, how we interact in our work environment, and education at schools may never be the same, but humans are resilient. We learn to adapt, and sometimes, if we are good at it, we flourish.

We will continue sharing the behind-the-scenes of what's happening in nature on our Live in Camp page, keeping you all involved in our efforts to keep conservation alive.

Live in Camp



Look, the word 'uncertain' has earned its place in the dictionary in the year 2020! So to give you peace of mind when booking with us, we've relaxed our payment details. You can book your safari now, and you'll only have to pay in August. Once this all blows over it will be ideal to have a holiday in the books to look forward to.

Book Now, pay later


The Coronavirus is the main topic on everyone's lips at the moment. How can it not be, as it brings the entire world to a halt? We like to be on the pulse to understand what is happening in the present and plan for a fairly uncertain future. We have teamed up with industry experts to give you insightful and entertaining topics - from photography to conservation. From April, we entered a ‘curl up’ period and decided to hunker down for four months while assisting clients in postponing their trips. We believe that it's best to keep discussion forward-thinking to adapt and pivot to changing times. Sign up to our 'Safari Talks' newsletter to receive updates and alerts to your inbox.

Sitting around the crackling fire, replaying the day's adventure may feel like a distant memory at this stage - but we'll all be craving a good adventure at the end of this all. Until that day comes, we are here to keep you in touch with the light at the end of the tunnel, getting you through this odd time. We want to keep the reality of nature alive for you while you are sitting at home and staying safe. From recipes to poems, safari adventures to folklore - we want to reconnect you with nature. So pour yourself a gin and tonic and keep in touch with wild Africa through our eyes.
