Africa has come a long way since Teddy Roosevelt took his first safari in 1909. Then, there was only one way to go on safari and that was on foot, carrying your tent and provisions with you. Today, there are numerous choices and decisions to be considered when crafting your personal safari experience and we are experts at helping you make the selection that is best for you. We eat, sleep and breathe Africa; this is our passion. Let us share it with you.
