“It always seems impossible until it is done” – Nelson Mandela. This quote challenged us to realize our dream of founding a truly sustainable and responsible tour operator. We believe that tourism should leave more than footprints, should help nature, should help the people who live there. That tourism should inspire, teach and let visitors experience what Africa is really like. Not touristic Africa, but the real undiscovered continent that is Africa.
Our Africa is the Africa of endless horizons, stunning landscapes and the richest wildlife ecosystems on Earth. It’s where we dream of the last frontier, of unique places and remote regions where only a lucky few dares to tread. We believe that luxury is not only found in your lodge, but also through our exclusive, bespoke experiences.
It is also the Africa of wildly different people, people who will receive you with open arms in their homes, their villages and towns and who will share their lifestyle with you. It’s Africa where tourists help maintain the environment, help locals grow, develop, and are welcomed as honoured guests, not as money machines. It’s Africa where your visit has a positive impact on the environment and helps maintain it for future generations.
