Why travel with us ?

1.

Peace of Mind

Travelling should be exciting and relaxing, not stressful. Our comprehensive pre-planning coupled with extensive local experience ensures a worry-free journey. Often, stress arises from the details, such as how to get to the airport or where to find an ATM. With home pick-up and drop off, all you have to worry about is packing your bag and walking out your front door; for the rest, your knowledgeable Journey Manager will be there to make the necessary adjustments throughout your journey. Such details are ours to arrange and yours to enjoy.

2.

Quality & Value

Relax, it’s included. True value is knowing the price up front and being able to indulge in a journey’s experience, not the details of paying as you go. We started nearly 40 years ago on the foundation of providing all-inclusive journeys to those who value quality and simply want to experience adventure and relaxation. Quantity changes quality; it’s simply inevitable. That’s why we cater to smaller groups, ensuring that our guests are not merely satisfied—they’re delighted: just ask those who have travelled with us 5, 10, 30, or even 45 times.

3.

Personal Touch

Our reputation is built on treating our guests like family. A philosophy that is reflected in our people and services; from our friendly office staff, to our professional Journey Managers meeting you at the Toronto airport, flying with you, managing your entire journey and helping you settle into your private car home. Our local guides, many of whom are long-time partners and friends, will welcome you into their countries and towns and share their lives and traditions with you. It is this personal touch that transforms a journey into a memorable experience.

Guest Testimonials

Graeme and I would like you to know that our trip to South Africa was absolutely wonderful. The highlights were our time at Ngala Safari Lodge and the day trip from Victoria Falls across the border to Chobe National Park in Botswana to see the ANIMALS! Those outings were amazing! We also saw and learned so much about South Africa itself. It truly is a beautiful country.
- Graeme and Margaret Anne Robb
