Celebrate Summer… Honour missed events with a celebratory trip
It’s time to reclaim your postponed vacations and celebrate your missed milestones. These moments deserve more than just a Zoom call. Spending time in wide open spaces on safari, at the beach, or in a new city, is the ultimate way to make up for missing any of life’s special moments.
To celebrate life is a way to develop an “attitude of gratitude” that can literally genuinely transform our outlook on life and our ability to enjoy more deeply what we already have. Book a trip to Africa, you deserve it!
Our top destination suggestions where you can go big and make up for missed celebrations:
Big Five Safari in South Africa for Family Reunions
After months of various limitations that have affected many aspects of our lives, spending your days in nature will be nothing short of epic. Whether out on an adventure in a safari vehicle or learning on foot about the language of the bush from those that know it best, this is also a time where, together, you can find beauty, tranquility, and joy in nature together. Planning a multigenerational safari with grandparents, parents and children, a group of friends or those wanting to get together to celebrate all those special moments missed – means having to consider what each person would enjoy and take away from the experience. A Big Five Safari is sure to please everyone. South Africa has some incredible bonding safari regions, with great private villa options, allowing you the freedom to plan your entire schedule and experience a safari at your leisure.

Kenya Safari and Seychelles Beach Bliss for Birthdays and Gatherings with Friends
Kenya is where the safari originated and consistently ranks as one of Africa’s greatest safari destinations. This adventure will include Big 5 game viewing, exceptional natural beauty and meaningful cultural encounters. Kenya offers small intimate lodges which can be booked up exclusively. What could be more fun than a Hot Air Balloon Safari over the Serengeti, learning bush skills from the Maasai, private bush breakfasts and dinners and sleeping in mobile tented camps following the millions of wildebeest on their annual migration? Ending with a week of pure relaxation at a beach resort off the Kenyan coast or a bit further afield on the idyllic island of Seychelles. Another cocktail? Don’t mind if I do.

Tanzania Safari for Celebrating milestones or just life – Milestone Celebrations
Going on a safari is a transformative experience, teaching you about celebrating life and living it to the fullest. We cannot think of a better way to mark an impactful milestone, whether a birthday, an anniversary or retirement, than by setting out on an African Safari in Tanzania. From flying over the game rich savannah to a dune landscape, to witnessing the great migration, meeting local hero’s and a few safaris in between, Tanzania will make your senses come alive and is the perfect backdrop to celebrate that milestone!

Just about anywhere in Africa for Honeymoons
Imagine private, romantic meals in the middle of the African veld, scenic helicopter flights over the Okavango Delta, a private bubble bath on the banks of the Zambezi River, a sleep-out on safari in a Tree House or Skybed, your toes dipped in the tropical warm water and sandy white Mozambique beaches that stretch for miles, or a week in the Cape winelands, devouring the best food and wine SA has to offer. What an idyllic way to start your life together.

Botswana is perfect for Solo Celebrations
Our CEO recently did a solo trip to Botswana, but as he said he was never alone. There are other guests in camp, and you have your safari guide to give you all the insight into this incredible landscape and the wildlife she carries. But there is plenty of time for alone time and gentle reflection whilst immersed in the beauty of nature. In between your safari drives, nature walks, birding safaris and the good-for-the-soul water safaris, you will have time to sit on your suite deck and simply contemplate mother nature and the wonder of life.
Zambia for Graduation and Taking on Life’s adventure
One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, bordering on the majestic Zambezi River, The Victoria Falls is a place of unspoiled wilderness and adrenaline pumping adventure. The range of sights and activities make it a unique destination for all, but adventure-seekers will love it! White water rafting, bungee jumping, micro light flights, tracking rhino of foot, sunset river cruises and swimming on the lip of the Devil’s Pool, make this the perfect fun, adventurous experience for young (and old). And if friends of family join in, imagine staying on a private Island in the middle of the Zambezi River. Combine this with a walking safari in the iconic Luangwa Valley, where you will come close to big game in this remote wilderness.
