  • This year we are celebrating 50 years as an award-winning family-run leading tour operator with experience in organising African safari holidays!

    In honour of our special milestone, we’ve picked the best destinations to celebrate a milestone occasion, whether it is a birthday or an anniversary.

    Kenya

    A Kenyan safari

    A Kenyan safari

    As our roots are in Kenya, we’ll kick off with recommending going on a Kenyan safari, which is the perfect way to see magnificent wildlife including the ‘big five’, and something everyone should tick off their bucket list at least once, although we can guarantee after your first experience of a safari you’ll definitely have the safari bug!

    What’s more, Kenya is the setting for the brand new much anticipated blockbuster ‘The Lion King” and so we encourage you to watch it when it hits the screens this summer for a flavour of how amazing a destination it is.

    It’s also the perfect setting to see the annual Wildebeest Migration, a taster of which you can enjoy in the clip below, so be sure to try to time your visit to coincide with it!

    Suggested itineraries:

    Cheetah Safari

    Our Cheetah Safari is a 7-night itinerary visiting the Aberdares, Samburu the Rift Valley Lakes and the Masai Mara.

    Kenya Royal Safari

    A safari of distinction, fit for royalty, visiting Kenya’s wildlife-filled game reserves and enjoying some of Kenya’s finest lodges and camps.

    You can elevate the experience by adding on a beach holiday as an extension!

    Rwanda

    Gorilla in Rwanda

    Gorilla in Rwanda

    A milestone occasion is a good reason to have a unique experience, and so we recommend Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda!

    With volcanoes, rainforests and rivers, and some of the rarest primates in the world, Rwanda has been blessed with its natural beauty. ‘The land of 1000 hills’ is set at altitude, and lush green adorns its sweeping slopes before disappearing high into misty peaks.

    It’s truly the experience of a lifetime and the best way to celebrate, being amongst these graceful giants in their natural habitat.

    Suggested itineraries:

    Chimps and Gorillas

    Chimps and Gorillas is a five-night itinerary in Rwanda, combining a visit to chimps in the Nyungwe National Park and gorillas in the Parc National de Volcans. Both experiences are amazing and not to be missed.

    Gorillas in the Wild

    Gorillas in the Wild takes you on a tour of Parc National de Volcans where you can experience a journey through the beautiful terraced hillside that characterises much of Rwanda’s landscape. Climb the base of the awesome Virunga volcanoes.

    Tanzania and Zanzibar

    Tanzania Safari and Zanzibar beach

    Wildlife in Tanzania

    Tanzania is home to Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, as well as the enigmatic Ngorongoro Crater and the world-famous Serengeti plains, which is featured in the BBC Earth documentary called “Serengeti.”

    Wildlife, scenery, culture, and idyllic beaches – Tanzania has it all, making it perfect as a destination in which to celebrate!

    Suggested itineraries:

    Our Serena Serengeti Safari is an extraordinary journey through contrasting landscapes, with excellent opportunities for game viewing in Lake Manyara, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater.

    Our Selous, Saadani & Zanzibar is a superb 10-night safari by air, combining a calming beach retreat with captivating game viewing.
