HOW WE DO THINGS ON OUR TOURS

We select hotels for charm & character and owner-managed restaurants with seasonal fare and regional wines.

We dig deep into our roots to enrich your routes.

We seek out less travelled roads.

We partner with Passage to Africa, safari specialists who show you an Africa inaccessible to all but a few.

Why don’t you extend your trip with a wildlife safari to discover the magic and majesty of Africa – and lighten your carbon footprint in the process?

We watch out for you – as opposed to micro manage you.

We pace each day for those who value exploratory time together as well as quality time apart.

Your peace of mind is taken care of – meticulously.
