Designing Your Vacation

Every vacation we arrange is individually designed to exactly match your interests, your time frame and accommodation preferences. That’s why it’s important that we speak with you at an early stage. We listen to your dreams of an ideal African safari and then we use our 23 years experience to make them come true! You don’t need any knowledge of Africa to have the initial conversation.

Following our initial discussion we will email you a detailed itinerary and an explanatory letter. You can then digest that and together we can fine tune the plan until every day is perfect.

Where we suggest you travel may depend upon the weather in different parts of Africa during your preferred month of travel. It will also depend upon the kinds of animals you want to see and whether you are interested in particular activities. Some countries have more upscale accommodation with a spa and private pool, while others specialize in more adventurous safaris, like a tented camp beside a great river.

If you are traveling with children that will also influence our suggestions as younger children will want to be accommodated in a two bedroom lodge and will be interested in having a pool and activities suitable for them. If you are traveling alone we will suggest lodges that have communal dining and shared activities, or you may want to join a group who are traveling together.

Another consideration is the pace of travel. We believe that the best policy is to choose top quality lodges and camps and to stay around three nights at each place. That way you get to relax and explore the location in depth, forming a relationship with your hosts. When you do move to the next location we will arrange this quickly and easily often using well maintained small planes.

Please take time to explore this site, then give us a call or send an email so that we can begin planning your perfect African safari.
