Expert Travel Advice

We’ve slept in the beds, indulged in the food, connected with people and seen the wildlife. Then we went back and experienced it all again, just to be sure. We’ll keep retracing our journeys to ensure that what we recommend is perfect for you. We pride ourselves on being the go-to on African travel and providing you with the expert advice.

Made in Africa

We enjoy personal relationships with numerous suppliers across Africa. Situated in Port Elizabeth, also known as the friendly city, we are on the ground which allows us to cut out the middle-man and deliver you the best pricing possible.  

Tailor-made Itineraries

Our itineraries are like the spots on a leopard’s coat – not one is alike. We’ll tailor-make your trip to suit your individual needs, budget and requirements rather than merely asking you to choose from set packages. Through this we create your dream southern African experience, and help you take home the best stories you’ll ever tell and make the most memorable memories.
