Tucked away in South Central Tanzania……hold on, hold on! One can’t really tuck away an extended wilderness area the size of Switzerland, right?  This is the wrong expression entirely. Ruaha

Encounter Gorillas – What You Need to Know

For many of us, the adventure of tracking and encountering wild gorillas on foot in their remote, African forest habitat, is a dream experience. The phrase ‘bucket list’ somehow doesn’t do it justice. In fact, it was staring off into space and daydreaming about gorillas that inspired my own move to Africa, though I was six years on safari before I laid eyes on a one of these magnificent apes in the wild.

Strike out on foot with five fantastic walking safaris, off the beaten track in Africa.

Four Unbelievable Private Houses In The African Wilderness

For a family travelling together or a larger group of friends, we love delving into the possibilities of exclusive houses and camps in some of our favourite wilderness destinations. Here is why:

Rhinoceros

On our recent exploration in central Kenya, we had the good fortune to spend an extended period in several of the stronghold conservancies, that have quite literally resurrected the two African species in East Africa. It was a return to the heady rhino viewing of those first years in Kruger and gave us a rare opportunity to observe both species, revived, relaxed and in close proximity.

Secluded Serengeti

In the far North of Tanzania and stretching a good way into Kenya, the Greater Serengeti Ecosystem spans a vast thirty thousand square kilometres. A thriving wilderness, pristine and teeming with wildlife, this jewel adorning Mama Africa between the arms of her Great Rift Valley is truly an icon to behold and revere.
