Shy but wonderful creatures.

Our safaris are about much more than just seeing the 'big five'. There is an awful lot more to see and experience in the African bush. Actually too much to fit in to one safari, which is why folks come back to see us year after year.
One of my personal favourites (not part of the big love) are Giraffes. Living in the African bush we often have Giraffes visit our house to drink from the bird bath of all things.

"Do you do birding?"

I'm often asked if we "do birding safaris?" We look at everything on our safaris from mammals to birds to the stars at night to trees, plants and bushes. And yes we do see a lot of birds.
We can of-course organise special birding safaris for keen ornithologists where we focus on birds mainly and bring in specialist guides, and indeed have done several over the last year. So if you would like to know more about specialised birding safaris just get in touch.

Baboons not everyones cup of tea

I think it would be fair to say that its not everyone who works in the African bush that likes Baboons. Especially some staff in bush lodges who have to deal with their often cheeky behaviour.
But come on, what's not to love?
As long as they leave my breakfast alone, I love seeing them around.

What could be better.....An African sunset in the company of friends and Elephants. Time for a sun downer and soak up the sights, smells and sounds of the bush.

Leopard selfie

Our leopard researchers often find some unusual pics on our camera traps. Leopards in particular seem very keen on either posing for the camera or as above selfies.

Lion roar - Love them to death

Our CEO (Will Fox) has been in the UK at Exeter Universities Grand Challenge week with the students who were looking at African Conservation and Earth Tomorrow.
Will was key note speaker and also spent much of the week working with student groups to help them develop various conservation based projects.
This was Wills second year working with Grand Challenges and as ever he was blown away by the students passion and enthusiasm for African wildlife conservation. There were many fantastic projects that were developed by the student groups, with The Lion Roar  project being a particular favourite, which looks to educate peer groups about canned lion hunting.

The Lion Roar group interviewed Will as part of their project. CLICK HERE to view that interview and please follow them and add your support to the cause.

Join us on safari and help us to make a difference
