We have been leading safaris in Africa for nearly 25 years, and we know how to show you the wilderness, through the best experiences in complete comfort, safety and style.
Our traditional safaris span across our beautiful African continent, extending through to the Asias – Malaysia, Borneo and Vietnam.
FANTASTIC SAFARIS. INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCES.
We tailor each trip to our guests’ needs, and our portfolio shows a variety of activities whether walking, driving or flying a helicopter, our highly experienced guides – Jono and Gary will help you immerse yourself totally in the wilderness: understanding its inhabitants, learning it’s core and appreciating its significance in an ever more precarious natural world.
We hope this provides you with the first step towards planning and experiencing your safaris to Africa and Asia. Having a guide and direction to exactly what you are looking for is key. We aim to craft unique itineraries to beautiful destinations this world has to offer; ones that are diverse, beautiful and raw, in a way that caters for you and your expectations. These awe-inspiring, tailormade safaris are guided by our two private guides, Gary Douglas & Jonathan Francis, and we affirm that nothing can substitute experience.

“… Lastly I must pay tribute to Gary and Jono who were excellent guides. They had done their homework and put considerable effort into finding the birds. Their knowledge also went much wider than birds and included the trees, insects and particularly butterflies. Like Taylors before us, we really enjoyed their company and recommend them highly .

“The trip is so much more than a birding trip. It is a complete African adventure… There is so much more I could write about but I will end off now saying only that this truly is the experience of a lifetime.”
