Affordable Adventure Travel in Africa

I feel no fear, no pain, no vain perplexity,

I feel deep, heartfelt joy that closely clings,

Lessons of love and earnest piety,

From all created things.

I feel, in every midge that hums,

Life, fugitive and infinite,

And suddenly the world becomes,

A part of me, and I of it.

Ingrid Geertsema

Do you dream of Africa?

"As the herd moved it became a carpet of rust-brown and grey and dull red. It was not like a herd of cattle or of sheep, because it was wild, and it carried with it the stamp of wilderness and the freedom of a land still more a possession of Nature than of men. To see ten thousand animals untamed and not branded with the symbols of human commerce is like scaling an unconquered mountain for the first time, or like finding a forest without roads or footpaths, or the blemish of an axe. You know then what you have always been told – that the world once lived and grew without adding machines and newsprint and brick-walled streets and the tyranny of clocks." - West With the Night, Beryl Markham

Affordability

A journey to suit your wallet

To travel the world does not need to cost the earth (pun intended). The great thing about Africa is that it offers experiences in different price ranges, and so where there is a will, there is always a way.

Southern Africa

South Africa offers affordable to luxury safaris in various National Parks and Nature Reserves, mountains and Winelands, and the lush and green South Coast with its beautiful towns and cities.

Botswana‘s unique Okavango Delta and surrounding game reserves are deservedly high on people’s lists.

Namibia‘s ancient deserts and dunes, its Canyon and Etosha National Park are all so vastly different and hauntingly beautiful that people often go back numerous times.

East and Central Africa

Kenya & Tanzania, who does not have the Great Wildebeest Migration high on their bucket list?

Who still wants to meet the critically endangered Mountain Gorilla’s in Rwanda and Uganda before it’s too late?
