Costs ...

We do not charge for our services, we are paid a small commission by the lodge owners and other service providers in Africa. Furthermore, we guarantee that the prices we charge you will be the same or lower than if you were able to purchasing individual items directly from our suppliers. So you really do get us for free, we should even save you money overall.

When it comes to the cost of the trip itself, we help to create trips which range in price from around USD2000 to over USD50,000 per person, so a huge range. But generally speaking we cover the middle to upper end of the pricing scale.

Meet the team ...

A critical part of our business strategy has always been to attract and retain the very best people.

The safari world is very small and people with the requisite levels of personal experience and field knowledge are rare. We reckon that there may be as few as twenty people worldwide who are truly expert at putting together safaris across Africa and have access to the necessary business systems to enable them to do this efficiently and reliably. We are proud to have several of these people amongst our number and the systems in place to support them ...
