Make tracks for a luxury tour of Africa
Explore a continent of monumental beauty, where nature still exercises dominion over the land, the people and the creatures that roam its plains.
Whether you are travelling with us to South Africa, Zambia, Kenya, Botswana, Tanzania or Namibia, you can expect an unrivalled level of privacy and comfort.
As a guest, you will enjoy access to vehicles best suited to the terrain and tour the region in small groups limited to 36 people in South Africa and Zambia and 24 people in Kenya and Tanzania.
Every detail taken care of
We will also take care of your transfers, entrance fees and all tipping and gratuities, allowing you more time to savour the sights and immerse yourself in the experience.
The heartbeat of Africa takes many forms, from the thundering elephants on the plains to the dainty thud of the springbok; from the resonating Zulu drums to the sound of a jumping Maasai warrior returning to the ground.

Our top African touring destinations
There's every possibility that Africa won't just open your eyes to new wonders, but change the way you look at life.
Africa’s economic powerhouse is also a place of enormous beauty and diversity. From the Garden Route in the Cape, one of the most spectacular scenic routes anywhere in the world, to Cape Town, the country’s international hotspot.
You’ll get to visit the world-renowned Kruger National Park, to partake in the region’s finest oysters in beautiful Knysna, to gape at the beautiful Blyde River Canyon, and travel the world-renowned Blue Train in 5-star luxury. And those are just a few of the highlights.
SEARCH SOUTH AFRICA TOURS
Contrast seems to define this small, landlocked African democracy. You’ll experience the Okavango Delta, with its unique waterways, and view the wildlife from a truly unusual vantage point – Mokoro canoe.
On top of this, you can look forward to Africa’s largest number of elephants, and bushland so remote some of the animals never get to see human beings. Wow.
SEARCH BOTSWANA TOURS
The Namib and Kalahari Deserts are unlike deserts anywhere else. There’s something unique about the light, the colour of the sand, and the way the creatures that inhabit it behave.
You’ll spend quality time in the wide silence of one of the most remote wonderlands on Earth – a place where just looking up the stars is a unique experience. Magnificent landscapes, throngs of wild animals, beaches as beautiful as they are severe, marine life the equal of any in the world, and remote colonial settlements unlike anywhere else – it’s all here, just waiting to be rediscovered.
SEARCH NAMIBIA TOURS
The vast savannahs of Tanzania are populated with vast herds of antelope, magnificent predators, and epic stories of survival, where the age old law of kill and be killed still prevails.
You’ll be treated to definitive Africa, and get to enjoy some of its very finest game lodges, from the world-renowned Serengeti, to the Tarangire National Park, and the Ngorongoro Crater.
SEARCH TANZANIA TOURS
Kenya is a land where open savannah gives way to deep valleys, and magnificent mountain ranges. Straddling Africa’s impressive Rift Valley, right on the equator, the weather tends to be ideal one day, and perfect the next.
You’ll get to explore some of its distinctive indigenous Masaai culture and to take unforgettable forays into its unforgettable wilderness. In fact, in the Amboseli National Park, the Aberdare National Park, and the magnificent Masai Mara, you’ll get to experience the finest game lodges anywhere in Africa.
SEARCH KENYA TOURS
The Victoria Falls isn’t just a spectacular natural feature, the like of which you’ll find virtually nowhere else, it’s also a place of immense spiritual strength and beauty.
There’s nothing quite like standing in front of the world’s largest sheet of falling water. And while it’s quite impossible to measure exactly which is the world’s largest waterfall, from a technical point of view, for many this one has a very, very good claim.
