The most beautiful place you've never seen.

Curated experiences in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe.

We're hard at work partnering with African initiatives that support youth education, local communities in need as well as programs aimed at protecting the biodiversity so unique to Africa. We feel that making an impact is an important part of traveling, which is why we built social giving into our business model.

Classic South Africa
Safari by Foot
Walking Safari Adventure

In one of the largest game reserves in Africa, Kruger National Park is a great way to enjoy a classic safari experience. And while most safaris take place in open-air jeeps, this walking adventure provides the ultimate wildlife experience. Guided by experts, walking through the bush allows visitors to become a part of the landscape rather than just observing it. It's an immersive, first-hand experience unlike any other.

Minimum Duration: 4 days/3 nights
