Small group tours

Group tours are the cost-effective way to explore both mainstream and remote Africa under the guidance of some of our best guides in the company of like minded friends. Perfect for solo travellers or first-timers wanting just a bit more security.

For over 2 decades we’ve stuck to a simple mantra. About using mainstream routes to keep costs down, also to have lots of accommodation and activity options on hand. But then to get into the remoter areas where wildlife is plentiful, crowds are thin and guides are in their element. To those special places where travel tends to be more costly.

All good and well for seasoned travellers in Africa who know some of the ropes. Similarly for those with strong budgets and lots of time who’re happy to pay for the best local expertise.

Escorted group tours into our traditional destinations

So escorted small group tours are the perfect match for solo travellers. These safaris add a simple layer of security because you’re exploring with like minded people. They’re ideal for first timers in Africa. The easy way to explore mainstream routes in East and southern Africa. Especially in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. Also Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia.

Also the easy way to cut the costs of a family or group of friends travelling in celebration of a milestone. We run these group tours on set dates through the year. Maximum group size is 8 to 10 depending on where we travel.

Going off piste in Africa

Some of our most secret spots and the emerging destinations in Central Africa can be very difficult, also costly to run at a high standard. These are places where the cost of chartering a light aircraft in and out alone outweighs the cost of the few days on the safari itself. The only cost-effective way to explore some of these spots is to secure a group big enough to share the costs. The added advantage is that we’re able to select from some of Africa’s best guides to run the trip.

These small group safaris get us into relatively unexplored enclaves in Gabon, Congo, Cameroon, the CAR and Chad. We run them seasonally or on request only. Minimum group size is 6, maximum is 10 guests.
