  • Zambia

    For a genuine safari experience Zambia will deliver an adventure unspoiled by mass tourism. The magical Victoria Falls; walking in the renowned Luangwa Valley, numerous game rich parks, fantastic birding (shoebills included!), the mighty Zambezi river and so much more… Join us and lets explore!

  • Malawi

    The Warm Heart of Africa – this little gem has much to offer… from mountaintops, grasslands and forests, unspoilt wildlife parks (diverse game and endless birding list), to Africa’s third largest and most beautiful Lake! The heart warming Malawian smile and hospitality tops it off for an unforgettable journey.

  • Zimbabwe

    One of the most beautiful countries in Africa, a world of wonder! Zimbabwe has great diversity and splendour – from unspoilt and uncrowded wilderness experiences to being home of one of the world’s 7 natural wonders, the magnificent Victoria Falls (also dubbed “adventure capital of Africa”); and 5 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

River Journeys

River Journeys is a magical safari that takes place between January and March when the Luangwa River is at its fullest, thus giving rise to some exceptional boating. The Luangwa Valley is at its most dramatic in the Emerald Season, with the Luangwa River now flowing over into the brimming lagoons. Boating into these lagoons, flooded ebony groves and flowing channels gives you a view of the Valley which is normally inaccessible during this season.
