Dear friends and guests,

We are extremely grateful for each and every one one of you who has been so incredibly supportive and passionate about Africa.

The fact is that each person that travels touches the lives of so many people in the villages that we all travel through.

We were amazed that 90% of all our travellers postponed for 2021 which meant that conservation efforts, support within communities and at the basic element, food on the table, for so many amazing people will continue.  We truly live in an amazing world, filled with amazing people. 

We are happy to share that over the past months African countries and operators have worked hard to implement protocols to keep everyone safe. Added to that our amazing wild open nature of the safaris allows for travellers to feel free and safe again. 

Most of the trips will be running from April 2022 (with several private trips available now for travel). 

When we started in 2007, we had a similar experience with the Global Financial Crisis, what we saw then was that people just wanted to take time for themselves. The moment of self-reflection allowed them to reflect and take a breath.

The feedback we received was amazing and expressed how deeply touched they were by their experiences.

There weren’t a lot of people travelling through Africa and the same will apply for the near future.

This will give you an amazing insight into how grateful the communities are to see travellers. 

What we feel is that travelling through Africa gives you a once in a lifetime experience that will change you forever. 

We look forward to welcoming you back. 

Kindest regards and deepest appreciation
