We lead Privately Guided safaris throughout Southern Africa. Besides having a very detailed understanding of animal behaviour and more than 15 years of safari experience in Africa, we are also very well travelled and passionate wildlife photographers. Due to this combination of skills, we know just how to maximise viewing & photographic opportunities, all the while providing a superlative connection between you and Africa's ancient landscape and wildlife. A photographers’ eye also notices the beauty in seemingly arbitrary and inanimate aspects of nature and by introducing you to this remarkable micro world as well, creates an awareness of the infinite diversity in Nature, enriching your safari like no other. Our Experience Enhances Yours!
