Nights will be spent around campfires in the wild. There will be many great photo opportunities when we explore some of the world heritage sites and national parks. Our focus is on the wildlife in South Africa and Zimbabwe and we spend most of our time in these areas.
We also visit areas along the South African coast, where beautiful, quiet sun kissed beaches provide the perfect place to relax. For those who enjoy hiking, there are many scenic mountains, pockets of pristine forest and canyons with hiking routes.

What is a Private Safari?
A private safari is a safari that has been arranged and will be operated exclusively for you and your partner/family/group of friends. You will be alone in the vehicle with your guide whilst on safari, there will be no other guests. You will have personal access to your guide and he/she will be able to pick up on your interests or disinterests. If you have a special interest in something like birds, your guide will spend time to focus on this interest, alternatively if you are not interested in something like birds for example then your guide will know not to spend too much time watching our feathered friends. If you are a little tired on safari and would like extra time to rest before lunch or afternoon drive or if you would like to spend a little extra time in the bush during the day your guide will make adjustments to suite you , all of this is not easy to achieve on a group safari.
