The best safari experience

The best safari experience

A safari game drive is the best way to admire the wildlife of Africa. With the best guides and trackers, driving in an open safari vehicle, possibly quietly following the animal through the bush, it is the most beautiful African safari adventure you can experience.

Walking safaris; become one with nature

Walking safaris; become one with nature

Walking in a safari area, with a guide by your side, is a unique experience. Whether it’s for a few hours or several days, it’s up to you. During this experience, attention is not only given to the large animals but also to learning about animal tracks, insects, and plants. Take on the challenge and feel one with nature.

Eco training or a wildlife research project

Interested in nature conservation and the African bush? Then consider taking an eco-training course. While these courses are designed for professionals, there is a growing interest among tourists as well. If you want to engage in fieldwork with a conservation research team, that option is also available.
Experience the coast or take a safari trip on the water

Experience the coast or take a safari trip on the water

Drinking elephants, hippos, and, of course, the most beautiful birds: they become even more impressive during a boat safari. But if you want to dive, snorkel, or simply relax on the beach after your safari game drives, with or without whale, dolphin, and sea turtle activities, that is also possible.
Culture during your safari journey

We know the best areas where to see wildlife

For sound safari advice, it is crucial to have knowledge of animal behavior. Seasonal influences often determine where animals are located and how easily they can be observed. The use of a skilled tracker can also make a significant difference. Of course, no one can guarantee that you will see everything you desire, but with my knowledge of the natural habitats in various areas, you will have the best realistic opportunities.

Years of experience in African safaris guarantee knowledge of various safari regions.

You don’t need luck: spending a few days in the right area practically ensures you’ll find what you’re looking for.
