Finest wildlife destinations
Our own travels in search of the world’s finest opportunities to see wildlife in its natural habitat allow us to hand-pick the very best experiences. Rarely satisfied with what we have seen, we strive to ensure that no far-flung corner of the planet escapes our scrutiny, in our search for the best of the natural world.
As the earth continues to shrink, remote areas, that were previously impossible to visit, open to visitors from around the world. We are proud to be at the forefront of pioneering these destinations in our quest for new and exciting wildlife experiences.
Even in those destinations where we have operated for a long time, rather than rest on our laurels, we continuously seek new ways of bringing you the best they have to offer.
Personalised travel services
With highly personalised individual travel documentation, and a dedicated consultant to supervise every stage of your booking, the level of service we offer is second to none.
On the ground – depending on the country – you will be met and greeted at the airport of your arrival, and thereafter looked after every step of the way by personnel for whom your needs and wishes are the absolute priority.
However, before you even get to that stage, we positively relish the challenge of helping you design your perfect itinerary – to create the journey of a lifetime…!
Expert wildlife guides
We know from experience that there is nothing quite like an expert guide to enhance your understanding and enrich your experience. A specialist guide with a well-developed knowledge of mammals, birds and plants, rather than generalist with only minimal knowledge of wildlife, is the key to locating what you wish to see.
Where possible, we prefer to use the services of a private guide for the exclusive use of our clients. In some cases the guide may accompany the entire itinerary from start to finish; in others, we are happy to use a local guide at each specific location.
Whatever the circumstances, all guides will have a good command of English, and able to communicate their knowledge clearly and effectively and with enthusiasm.
Finest wildlife accommodation
Although we use a variety of properties, our preference is for small, characterful, owner-managed properties, which – crucially – are located close to the best wildlife sites. This helps keep travel to a minimum and ensure you are in the right place at the right time, although it does mean that – on occasion – location is a higher priority than comfort.
Depending on what is available locally, we can arrange everything from top-end accommodation with all the associated comforts, to simple mid-range camps, lodges and hotels. This is reflected in the cost of your trip.
And even if your preference is for luxury, it may be worth suffering some minor discomfort for a few nights to get the very best animal sightings – as long as you can then return to comfortable accommodation.
