SPECIAL INTEREST TRAVEL
Extraordinary trips designed around your passions
Special interest travel to Africa
This is the perfect way to travel if you’re really interested in a particular field (for example, photography or conservation). Every one of these special interest tours is designed by us and hosted by one of our team members, partner photographers and/or guides. These handpicked specialist will share knowledge and advice during your entire journey.
It’s an incredible opportunity to get specialist insights on your particular area of interest while on a holiday celebrating exactly that, and in some of the most spectacular locations in the world. You’ll travel in a small, fully escorted group with your host dealing with all of the logistics, so your trip will be effortless and you can spend more of your time in Africa “in the moment”.
Expect immersive experiences in remote wilderness areas and the opportunity to contribute directly to conservation and sustainability efforts. Plus you’ll get to share these experiences with people just as interested as you in the speciality subject.
