Travel with Purpose 2019



Wilderness Blogger


Introducing our 2019 portfolio of eight life-changing, ‘purposeful’ journeys – crafted to offer guests access to unique and privileged, behind-the-scenes conservation and community projects run by ourselves and our partners.

We have been creating life-changing journeys such as these for more than 35 years, and our ‘purpose’ today is stronger than ever when it comes to our dedication to conserving and restoring Africa’s wilderness and wildlife.
