Now is the time to plan ahead

As many are choosing to postpone their holidays from 2020 to 2021 and 2022, we are finding that availability for next year is often a challenge at some key properties. If you have travel plans for next year we suggest you give us a call to help you secure the best guides and to get preferable hotel rooms reserved. With our flexible payment terms, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

A New World

Given that nature has forced humanity to hit a global pause button, we should use this time for reflection and to redefine ‘normal’ for a truly sustainable future. Responsible, conscious and sustainable travel is the way forward, and making well informed and considered choices will become the new norm. A well-researched African or Indian safari can go a long way in supporting local communities, protecting wildlife and helping to fight poachers.
