African Safaris Fall 2016

Hot off the presses, and just in time for families gathering together (and dreaming about next year's travel adventures together) it's our latest edition of African Safaris filled with our very favorite safaris, planning tips, and much more.

This September I traveled from Jerusalem to Cape Town, exploring six countries in between. I came away yet again, after 26 years of introducing travelers to this incredible continent, feeling enthalled, like it was my first time!

Hiking through villages and farms, up volcanoes and into gorilla habitat; filming the great wildebeest migration as they charge across the Mara River; floating silently in a balloon only feet above the vast Serengeti plains; sipping cocktails at sunset from a steam train with the powerful Victoria Falls as a backdrop; tracking wild dogs in the Okavango Delta as they fan out on an evening hunt; and relaxing in Africa's fairest city, Cape Town, with stunning views and beautiful wines paired with traditional Cape cuisine.

We can take any of these extraordinary African experiences, and weave them into a personalized itinerary you will never forget. As an independent traveler, you will pick your preferred traveling companions and dates of travel. We then tailor a safari specifically for your friends or family that incorporates wild places with phenomenal game viewing, safari camps and lodges that embody the safari tradition, and passionate guides who know their natural surroundings intimately and are talented at interpreting them for their guests.

While traveling independently of a group you will never be alone. From the time you arrive in Africa, you will be met and escorted between destinations. On arrival at each camp you will be greeted by knowledgeable, resident guides who will look after your throughout your stay.

So contact us and put us to work crafting a customized itinerary for you. It's what we love to do, as so many of our travelers have shared. We know you will be absolutely thrilled with your private African experience.
