Big cat specialist

Typically trips are expertly guided by a leading specialist with a good knowledge of the area to be visited. The Big Cats and other resident wildlife are the main focus of attention however most trips also incorporate other fauna and flora highlights of the destination as well. Our trips use local guides and experts and contribute to local conservation projects whenever possible.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Luxury camping safari in Botswana

On all our safaris to Botswana we employ local guides and staff thus contributing directly to the local community. Part of the tour visits the Khwai community area which is managed by the Khwai Village, with all proceeds going into the development of the village.

Our group safaris take between 9 and 12 passengers per vehicle thus minimizing the carbon emissions per tourist, compared to that of a private safari. The Hotel and Tourism Association of Botswana manage the campsites that are used for these safaris and there are very strict rules imposed regarding litter and waste disposal, with hefty fines if these rules are not adhered to. No fixed structures are used on this trip, thus minimizing the impact on the environment.

We aim to minimise our impact on the environment as much in the UK as we would do in any of our destination countries. We do this through recycling of any office waste including, paper, plastic, cans, glass, refuse, in partnership with the Borough of Brighton and Hove. The purpose of our safaris is to contribute to local populations, communities and projects. We give our travelers advice on how to interact with the local population, flora and fauna in order to minimise any negative impact. We advise people not to bargain just for the sake of it and because it is the “thing to do”; you should pay what you feel the object is worth to yourself and the vendor, bearing in mind local cultures, society and standard of living.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The wildlife, the stunning location of our accommodation was truly memorable.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Go to the bushcamps! Its fab.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


During our stay, we learnt a lot about the different local projects the provider of this vacation is involved with - we thought it was quite extensive. Environmentally, the solar-powered bushcamp was definitely the most ecological of the 3 camps we stayed at.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


A truly unique experience. Great service pre-booking. Great service "on the ground" - including all transfers etc. Thank you!
