My team and I are passionate about wildlife conservation and making a positive difference. We have always promoted responsible luxury travel that gives back; inviting you to play an active role through incredible experiences that are transformative on many levels. Take part in exhilarating elephant collaring or rhino darting, help plant subsistence gardens or visit township arts projects in Cape Town or have a close encounter with some of the world’s few remaining mountain gorillas in Rwanda. The options are as diverse as this remarkable continent.

Over the years we have discovered a number of once-in-a-lifetime activities that are memorable and inspiring, as well as beneficial to people, wildlife and their habitats. Simply by travelling with us you are contributing to conservation and community upliftment. We support ethically-managed, ecologically-minded lodges, providing for employment as well as species and habitat protection, so your African journey will have a positive impact on all the people and places you visit.
