Our SA Office

All African born, we've travelled all over Africa and hand-on-heart, our opinion is honest and our advice comes from experience. We have South African guide certificates and excellent local knowledge - however we can't guarantee we speak all 3000 African languages, but most Africans speak English! Whew.

We use a wide variety of suppliers, so you get to choose what type of holiday you want from 5* tented, boutique hotels and bush camps to luxury river cruises. Our friendly helpful guides have been with us for years. We love them and we are sure you will too!

Fair Pricing. There is no middleman and we deal directly with suppliers. We play fair!

African time. Because we understand that unexpected surprises happen, we plan everything ahead of your holiday with minute attention to detail, we leave nothing to chance! Any extras from a bag of biltong to a bunch of Sunflowers, you'd like on arrival, just let us know. We can't guarantee a 'monkeys wedding' (that's rain and sun at the same time), but we try!
