Booking an escorted safari means that you or your guests are going to be looked after by one of our professional specialist guides from the minute they arrive until the minute they leave. A specialist guide is someone who has been to the camps before and has an in-depth knowledge of the reserves and a lot of previous experience. He not only guides the safaris, he manages every aspect of it. For example; luggage retrieval, medical and dietary requirements, cooking meals, paying the bills and sorting out any unexpected travel hiccups which happen in Africa despite every precaution being taken. They are a font of knowledge on the country, its politics and people. They all have a deep passion for our wildlife and understand the issues of conservation.
Your guide wakes you in the morning for game drives, gets the kettle on while you’re still rubbing the sleep out of your eyes and has the coffee ready with homemade muffins by the time you are fully awake. He spends 5-6 hours in the bush with you trying to find as much wildlife as he can for you and then repeats it again in the afternoon for another 3 hours. After that he cooks dinner for you and will sit with you afterwards to discuss the days’ events. Very few lodges do that these days. At some private lodges, the staff take it in turns to be the person on duty in the evenings and there is every chance that you won’t see a ranger at dinner the whole time you are there, let alone the ranger who you have been on game drive with. We believe that you should be able to spend the evening talking to your guide about your encounters that day, it’s all part of the experience and it’s how you learn more about the bush and its’ inhabitants
Due to the nature of the business, the people they meet and the things they experience, our rangers are great characters & storytellers, with a wealth of patience and a wonderful sense of humour. This is supported by a love of people and the wildlife whose lives and ways they share with the lucky guests travelling with them.

Kruger National Park – the very name arouses evocative images of crisp, clear winter mornings with an orange sun rising from the horizon, the early morning call of lions in the distance and the whickering alarm call of the zebra; the sweet scent of Mother Africa’s greatest piece of paradise, stirred for another day of adventure; and after a day in the bush, settling down and feeling the primeval prickle of hair on the back of the neck as the hyena whoops in the dead of night.
We invite you to experience the Kruger with us and our experienced expert guides.

Discover the Kruger at its best on this wonderful adventure by staying in one of the Park’s rest camps with your own guide and open safari vehicle and experience magical Mozambique and tropical seas. Mozambique is a new and upcoming destination which lies on the East coast of southern Africa, bordered by South Africa in the south west, Zimbabwe in the central west and Malawi & Southern Tanzania in the north. The 2700 km east coast is lapped gently by the warm Indian Ocean with some of the most beautiful white sandy beaches in the world, with first class diving sites and great fishing opportunities. The Mozambican people are renowned for their friendliness.
For those who would like to take their time exploring Maputo, this overnight tour includes all that the day tour has to offer but at a relaxed pace. The vibrant city of Maputo, once known as Lourenco Marques, is a city steeped in history, both European and African. The Portuguese started trading here in 1545 and the Dutch East India Company in 1720. Then the British tried to set up a trading post in 1776 but the mosquitoes got the better of them! The Portuguese came back again in 1782 but were defeated by the English, the French came in 1792 and the Portuguese came back again in 1799!! You can see all their different cultural influences while you drive around the city but Maputo is overall an African city with a great vibe.
