Signature travel

Fully hosted small group special interest journeys

Each as unique as a signature, these handcrafted journeys to Africa are designed by us and hosted by one of our team members or partner photographers and/or guides, thus guaranteeing the most personalised service from start to finish.  Signature travel ensures you get specialist insights on the interest areas throughout your journey. Our host also deals with any and all logistics as you travel so you spend more time in the moment in Africa.

Beyond the effortless nature of these signature safaris, expect immersive experiences, remote wilderness for truly rewarding wildlife safaris and the opportunity to contribute directly to conservation and sustainability efforts.

These tours make our biggest impact, one Signature Safari at a time.
