Wildlife Photography and Observation

There are an enormous variety of African experiences to be appreciated. We aim to offer you as many experiences as possible in your short time in Africa.

Walks and Hikes

Where we can we will enjoy short hikes and wanderings in the wilderness. Some say you only really appreciate Africa when you can breathe in the smells and sounds, touch and feel, and listen to the wilderness. We will present these opportunities to you.

Horseback

One of the greatest ways of enjoying the outdoors is from the back of a horse. We can set up a short afternoon ride, or you might like to spend more time on a longer horseback trek through some of the most exciting horseback country in the world.

Mountain Gorillas

An experience with the mountain gorillas of Rwanda or Uganda involves trekking into the forests of the Virunga Mountains or Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Some say this is the most exhilarating and moving wildlife experience out there. You get so close to these giant primates, observing them observing you – their almost human movements, innate dignity and social interaction make a unique connection within each of us.

Chimpanzees

The best chimpanzee viewing is in the far west of Tanzania in the Mahale Mountains on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. This is a truly unique, beautiful, remote and wild destination. And the chimpanzee interaction is a very special and exhilarating experience. You will trek out of the camp into the mountains each morning to catch up the chimpanzees – who are often heard before seen. The primeval hoots and calls echoing through the dense forest direct us to their location.

Lakes and Rivers

The lakes of the rift valley, the rivers, and the Indian Ocean provide opportunities for excursions by boat. Appreciation of the extraordinary variety of birdlife is often best done from a boat ride.

The Indian Ocean and East African Coastline

The East African coastline is unique with stunning white beaches, and great history and culture in remote island port towns, homes of the historical spice, ivory and slave trades.
