Navigation

Discovering the
road less travelled

Navigating the endless dirt tracks and washed out roads has always been one of the biggest challenges when traveling in Africa's wadis. In recent years Global Positioning Systems and Sat Nav pin point accuracy has opened up a whole new world in regards to wilderness navigation.

Ready made or build your own

All our itineraries are tailor made, but here are some of our favourite routes and camp combinations.

Self Drive Experiences

A self-drive safari doesn't mean you have to drive all the time; we encourage you to do much more! We can book any activity in any location, in any country. Whether you want to fly into Okavango Delta, do a walking safari in South Luangwa or fly to Mozambique, just let us know and we will include it in your itinerary.
