We offer real experiences
What you see, hear, touch and smell are what makes your holiday a dream come true. We offer real experiences, not a hotel.
You want to explore. Do you have the feeling everyone is offering the same? That all tours are clones of each other?
You do. And we don’t like that. We want to offer you the experience of a lifetime, not a weak copy of that where you follow mass-tourism. Our believe is that what you see, what you hear, what you touch and what you smell is what makes your African holiday a dream come true – not how your hotel looks. In other words, we are not a hotel booking site but a site where you choose your own experience.
Where we offer real experiences.
And sometimes where you sleep is that experience – nothing beats the feeling of a tented camp in the bush, sitting around the campfire and hearing lions roar in the distance. The next day you’ll sleep in a small room in a local community in the middle of nowhere. Eat your dinner together with your hosts, sitting on the ground and exchanging tales about your childhood. Or set up camp in the middle of the bush where only your 4×4 camper can take you. Listen to the laughing of hyena’s and the huffing of zebra’s when they pass through your camp.
Some experiences are very luxurious, like our train tours, gorgeous lodges or lavish wellness retreats. With other experiences the luxury is all about having an unique encounter, sleeping out under an incredible canopy of stars or going deep into the African bush and dessert.
Isn’t it time to step away from the masses and trod the untrodden paths? We offer real, sustainable and bespoke experiences in Africa.
Once you found the type of experience you want, go to our example tours page to see what your dream holiday could look like. These example tours are to inspire you, they are not fixed (except for the rail tours). We organize for you a bespoke individual holiday, so you can combine, change, adjust, upgrade or simplify and ask for anything else until it’s your perfect holiday. Just tell us your dream, which experiences you would like to have yourself, how long you want to travel and any budget limits. We will make it happen!
