From the rich wildlife of the African plains to the powder-soft sands of the Kenyan coast, Africa offers an abundance of unforgettable travel experiences.  Whether you are looking for a bespoke tour, or a relaxing luxury escape we can help you create the perfect itinerary for your Africa holiday.


Africa is a continent of endless travel opportunities. Many head here searching for the ultimate safari experience, and who would pass up the chance to spot the legendary 'Big Five'?  The wild plains of Kenya and the Tanzanian Serengeti are an excellent place to begin and safaris can be taken by jeep, private guide, or even a private jet! 

The lush green rainforests and mountains of stunning Uganda and Rwanda will introduce you to mystical mountain gorillas and golden monkeys.  Stay in an eco-lodge and learn how locals rely on eco-tourism to support and nurture their precious surroundings.

Head down to South Africa for a taste of the world-renowned wine region, or a trip to the fascinating capital of Cape Town. Head to the summit of Table Mountain and soak up the views before heading back to your luxurious resort for some well-earned R&R.

Sink your toes into the softest white sands imaginable and escape to paradise in Zanzibar.  Dive amongst vibrant coral reefs and hideaway in your own private lagoon.  You will never want to leave.
