Safari is the Swahili word for 'journey' so a choice of Luxury Holidays and Family Lodges. I can arrange all types of safaris including River Plains Mountains, self-drive, game drives, photographic safaris to mention just a few with the option of private transfers for families as well as the single traveller.
My goal is to ensure you will have the perfect safari experience. Safari Holidays - perfect add-on for the beach or City such as Dubai, the Indian Ocean or Zanzibar.
Arranging any safari is a complex and time consuming process even for a specialist. Your safari will likely involve several flights, lodges and hotels. Organising these your self can not only take up hours of your time but can a real headache!
Why not trust all this to a safari expert with years of safari knowledge with established contacts in all the right places?
