A Message from our Managing Director
For over 30 years we have been arranging inspirational travel for our clients across southern and east Africa. Over the course of three decades you inevitably weather many storms, gaining invaluable experience each time.
It is this experience that we draw upon as we continue to support our clients, staff and partners through the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19.
Yet, with the development of vaccination programmes around the world, a time when we can once again discover a new corner of our planet is feeling ever closer.
We remain in awe of our partners in Africa as they strive to continue protecting the people, wildlife and wild places in which they work. The reality is that they need us to have the confidence to commit to returning, if they are to survive.
We look forward to speaking with you again soon to plan your next adventure.
With best wishes,

COVID-19: OUR APPROACH
As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, our primary concern remains the safety and well-being of our clients, partners and team members.
Every holiday we arrange is uniquely designed to appreciate our clients’ individuality and we are approaching the current situation in the same way.
KEEPING UP TO DATE
We continue to closely monitor travel advice from reputable sources and ensure that we are in a position to offer you honest advice about the destinations you are considering for your first post COVID-19 holiday.
We are in regular communication with our Destination Management Companies (DMCs) and partners around the world, keeping up to date with the policies that have been put in place to ensure that you can travel safely.
TRAVEL ALREADY AFFECTED
For those of you who are due to travel shortly and whose plans have been affected by COVID-19, we understand that the messages from media sources can be confusing and we will do all we can to alleviate your concerns by collating information from reputable sources. You will already have been contacted by your personal Travel Designer, who is at hand to work with you to re-arrange your travel plans.
FUTURE TRAVEL ALREADY IN PLACE
If you are due to depart on your holiday in the coming weeks and would like to pre-emptively postpone or rearrange your holiday, please speak with your personal Travel Designer who can discuss the possibilities. Our partners, as always, will work with us to make this as straightforward as possible. It is important to mention that while our partners are offering greater flexibility in the current climate, moving travel (where possible) to a different season or into 2022 and beyond, if official advice states that travel to your destination is possible, may result in additional costs.
Should your future travel arrangements be affected by COVID-19 we will immediately get in touch with you. In this situation we will work with you to rearrange or postpone your arrangements with as little disruption to you as possible.
PLANNING FUTURE TRAVEL
Pent up desire and money is going to create a boom in high end travel from autumn 2021 through to the end of 2022. The Okavango Delta has fewer than 1,000 quality beds, the Lower Zambezi less than 100 – for a travel hungry world.
The current paralysis will end. My advice is to start planning your holiday now. Our Book with Confidence
promise means that you can plan and book now without concern. Give yourself something wonderful to look forward to!
