Travel Inspirations

Personal and unique every time

Because your dream safari should be a reflection of YOUR interests, passions, and budget, not someone else's. With over 20 years planning unique safari experiences, we believe business SHOULD be personal.

Been there, done that

Mention a lodge, hotel or destination and we have more than likely been there. Collectively, we have traveled on hundreds of trips and experienced camps and lodges from the low end right up to the ultra luxurious – in our opinion that’s the only way!

Don’t hold ownership in any lodge, camp or safari company

This means we are completely unbiased and free to recommend any lodging in Africa for you; unlike dealing with lodges or safari operators who are trying to sell you on their “own” camps or lodges, no matter how unsuitable this may be for you.

Maximize your travel dollar

We provide expert advice on where to save and where to spend.

Imagine the thrill of your child seeing their first wild elephant, learning how to track animals from a Kalahari Bushman or experiencing the giant Galápagos tortoises. Travel is the world’s best education and nothing will broaden your child’s horizons like an African safari, Galápagos cruise or trip down the Amazon.

Immerse yourself in the culture of a country or region. Hunt with Hadza Bushmen in Tanzania, visit a Maasai boma in Kenya or visit the townships of Cape Town or Soweto in Johannesburg. Explore the genius of the ancient Inca civilization at Machu Picchu in Peru. In India and Southeast Asia, participate in festivals bursting with the sights and sounds of ancient traditions and rituals. These can be the entire focus of your trip or add one or two of these activities to enhance the overall experience of your journey.

Do you dream of an unspoiled, undeveloped and unpopulated paradise? Where the beaches are a dazzling white, the ocean is warm and blue, and the diverse environment is pristine? Then you may enjoy a few nights on a post-bush beach safari at one of the many intimate resorts found on the exotic Indian Ocean islands.

Honeymoons and weddings in Africa or India are wildly romantic. Candlelit dinners on safari surrounded by the African bush, or watching the sun set over the greatest monument to love on earth – the Taj Mahal. It’s all about creating intimate experiences in breathtaking locations with discreet but special treatment.

Stunning landscapes, rich cultural history, wildlife, fortresses, palaces and temples all make for a photographer’s paradise. Elevate your photography to the next level with special photographic safaris. Travel in a small group with a professional photographer who knows the perfect lighting, exactly how a vehicle should be positioned and those special finishing techniques to get that “National Geographic” shot.

Step out of the vehicle and onto the trail. If being active and adventurous is your style of travel, consider trekking through rainforest to come face to face with an endangered mountain gorilla, heli-hike on a glacier in New Zealand, canoe around pods of hippos as you paddle down the mighty Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, or follow the lion tracks on a walking safari in Zambia. Whatever the adrenaline rush you choose, indulge in the luxury of your lodge or camp at the end of the day, watch the sunset while sipping a cocktail and dine on world-class cuisine as you regale your fellow travelers with stories from your adventures.

Graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, retirement. A time of new beginnings and new adventures. And what better way to celebrate these significant milestones than with travel. Whether it’s you and a spouse or partner, a group of friends or a multi-generational family, create lasting memories with highly personalized life-changing trips.

Experience the glamorous bygone era of luxury train travel with modern comfort and conveniences. Take in the stunning scenery of the Sacred Valley of the Incas as you roll towards Machu Picchu in Peru, travel like a maharaja while visiting the great temples and palaces of India, meander through landscapes that illustrate why South Africa is considered “a world in one country,” or ride Ecuador’s “railway in the sky” through the Avenue of the Volcanoes high in the Andes.

For the ultimate luxury trip, private charters can fly you into camps and lodges where you can have exclusive use of the entire property. Personal butlers and chefs will cater to your every need and your private guides will customize your day’s activities around your preferences.

Sometimes the best (and in some cases only) mode of transportation into certain destinations is by boat. Sail through the Galápagos, disembarking on the numerous islands to get up close to the amazing wildlife that can be found nowhere else on earth. Cruise down the Nile visiting Egypt’s magnificent tombs and temples that line the river.

You have wanderlust but your family and friends don’t. So, set out on a solo journey. But you won’t be alone, or lonely for that matter. You’ll meet new people at each camp and lodge and will be fully taken care of every step of the way by guides, drivers and staff. Your trip will be customized specifically for you with accommodations that are small and intimate so you won’t feel lost in a crowd, that have communal dining and shared vehicles. You’ll return not only with fabulous memories and photos, but perhaps some new friends as well.

Immerse yourself in a travel experience that focuses on authentic experiences while sharing the companionship of like-minded travelers. Explore the greatest, most unique places on earth with a specialist guide.
