Traveling in Africa is our passion

Africa inspires a renewed awe in us every day and we want you to experience our passion. Our travel experts are based locally. Africa is our backyard, giving us an intimate knowledge of the best spots for a romantic dinner on the Ngorongoro Crater and where to take off for the most magical sunrise hot air balloon safari and champagne breakfast.

Our hands on knowledge allow us to tailor make you trip. We’re excited to introduce you to the wonders of our favorite place on earth.

Let’s plan together.

We want to make memories that last you a lifetime

An African encounter enriches the soul. It’s a personal affair and a meeting that you’ll never forget. We want this meeting to be more than what you’ve imagined it to be.

We want to create your journey from scratch, taking you on an authentic adventure incomparable to those of others. Your trip will be a breeze in terms of logistics. All you have to do is get on the plane and start making memories.

Sustainability is important to us

One of our most vital aims is to conserve the natural heritage of the countries where we operate. We thoroughly research the conservation efforts and sustainable practices of each lodge and camp. 

We know that you want to preserve the beauty of Africa, and therefore we handpick the places we work with to ensure their kindness toward the earth and its inhabitants.

Award–winning partnerships

We use only the best of the best. All our tour operators in Africa have won prestigious awards and are accustomed to hosting the most discerning traveller. After a careful selection process we handpicked the crown jewels in the travel treasury. We work close together to personally ensure a bespoke adventure.

The opportunities are endless. Africa is a breathtaking tapestry of travel potential. A private bush camp in the Serengeti will bring you close to the Big Five during the day while romantic dinners under the African stars will introduce you to its nocturnal enchantment.

The other side of the coin is the barefoot luxury of an exclusive island in the Indian Ocean where the water is a crystal turquoise and days are spent diving, snorkeling or lounging on a deserted beach – cocktail in hand. We’ll make your most adventurous dreams a reality and create the trip that will ignite your wandering spirit.

After visiting the idyllic Seychelles islands four times, Lynette and her family decided to pack it all up and move there permanently, leaving beautiful Cape Town behind.

Lynette has been in the magazine industry for 10 years, seven of those spent at ELLE Magazine South Africa; she has written travel features for numerous publications globally, including Tatler Hong Kong, Asia Spa Magazine, Family Holiday & Leisure and Sunday Times Travel UK. 

With two young daughters under three and a full-time job as editor of two Seychelles publications, her downtime is sacred and best spent in the warm waters of Anse Royale, fresh coconut in hand, marveling at how life has turned out…

Adél is a chronic suffered of itchy feet, and an annual trip abroad isn't nearly enough to keep it in check. Therefore she explores the beauty within South Africa as much as humanly possible.

Five weeks of solitude travelling through the Kruger might be her local highlight. Adél is based in Cape Town where she is a freelance writer. The city does wonders for her constant need of new places to see and things to do.

She has written features for the likes of Getaway Magazine, Mango Juice, Dekat and Forbes Africa and contributes digitally for AFK Travel and Travelstart. She is happiest in a simple stone cottage on a farm - the more remote the better. Just let her have her notebook, pen and a glass of red.

A true citizen of the universe who lost her heart on an Indian Ocean island known as Unguja or Zanzibar as we know it. 

In fact, she loved it so much that after 20 years of International Brand Management in the Travel Retail Sector, she knew it was time to venture beyond the Duty Free shops, shelves and actually leave the Airport Terminal building. 

Feet firmly on the soft white sands of the Indian Ocean shores since 2009, Michelle, through her passion for travel, spices and island hideaways has been known for helping politicians, ambassadors, celebrities and wired corporates rediscover their mojo… albeit under a coconut tree, cocktail in hand.
