Planning a Safari

The overriding aim of our website is to include plenty of practical information which will be useful from the early stages of planning your safari up to the moment you start packing your bags for departure. We recognise that for many guests being involved in the planning is a highly enjoyable part of the whole experience. The typical comment we hear from first time guests is that they have considered a safari for a long time but found choosing one too confusing; they just didn’t know where to start or who to talk to. 

Planning a safari for the first time can indeed be a confusing and daunting prospect and we wish to provide a good understanding of the differences between the various Destinations, plus also explain the range of Accommodation options along with the type of Safari Experiences on offer. We also offer guidance on how much your safari may Cost, plus a Safari Calendar to help you plan when to travel.

We provide plenty of information on the individual countries we cover: BotswanaZambiaZimbabweNamibia, South AfricaKenya and Mozambique…so please enjoy reading about the many options available to you for your trip of a lifetime.

What we haven’t included are specific details of all the wonderful camps, lodges and hotels that we use as we prefer to make recommendations based on individual preferences. We have however included a selection of images in our Gallery to give a flavor of what is on offer.

When you are ready to start planning your safari drop Fiona an email, telephone us or Skype and we will be delighted to start working with you on your bespoke itinerary. We can often put together last minute safaris – and relish the challenge – but if you want the camps and dates of your choice we recommend you begin planning at least a year in advance, particularly for Botswana.

Our pledge to you is that we will always strive to arrange the best itinerary to suit your individual requirements and give you an honest opinion. If we don’t know the answer we will endeavor to find it for you.  We personally care about each and every safari we arrange or host and we work closely with some fabulous ground handlers, to ensure that your holiday arrangements are seamless.

We look forward to hearing from you in due course and helping to plan your African Adventure.
