Our favourite holiday? That would be safari. A 4.30 AM alarm, rugged up, scanning the horizon groggy eyed but hopeful. It’s not like visiting a famous attraction. On safari, you never know what you’re going to see. Each experience is unique.

Perhaps a lion – tired from a night hunting – resting on a rock, holding court in the drizzle. Or a lone rhino ambling through the scrub with far less authority than his size would assume. Or a family of elephants sauntering onto the road with complete disregard for your presence.

Our wildlife encounters have been enthralling, but also educational. We’ve learnt about their struggle for survival and the challenges of balancing the needs of man and the needs of animals. Come, discover with us.
