We’ll take you to where the wild things are on a luxury safari experience, where you can witness the Great Migration in Tanzania in a patch of the bush where it’s just you, your guide and a million-odd wildebeest charging through the savannah. If you’d prefer to get out on foot, we’ll tailor-make a luxury safari vacation to Zambia, home of the walking safari. It’s all good to see flora and fauna in their rawest state, but we believe you should get to know them rather than just enjoying a fleeting glimpse. You won’t just be trekking through the rainforests of Costa Rica; you’ll be learning all about the trees, the wildlife within them and the medicinal properties of plants. We’ll have you helping rangers track tigers in the wilds of India, walking through Sri Lanka’s jungles with a village chief and spying on Andean condors soaring high above the Chilean páramo. We also believe we should all play our part in protecting the fragility of these verdant ecosystems. So, we’ll always offer you the opportunity to give back on a luxury wildlife holiday through various conservation projects if you seek an enriching safari experience.PLAN MY SAFARI & WILDLIFE HOLIDAY
