The current global situation has created a lot of uncertainty and many concerns, especially around travel. But as earth's most resilient species, our love of travel – and its nature as a force for good – will inevitably bounce back. Since 1998, we have successfully navigated various crises and global disruptions and are committed to creating once in a lifetime trips while supporting conservation, communities, and sustainability in Africa, now more than ever.
One of the best things about safari is the impact your trip will have for generations beyond the memories to share or pass on: protecting wildlife and conserving the land these animals call home while employing people in rural communities and educating children across Africa. Without travel, without tourism, without safari, it becomes even harder to protect them.

Reasons to Go
With many travellers deferring their 2020 trips into 2021, availability is becoming tight. If you were thinking of a safari next year, now is the time to start exploring if you want to secure our best-recommended accommodations.
Given the travel restrictions and commitment to self-quarantining, our hotel, lodge and camp partners are offering unprecedented flexibility. You are generally able to defer your trip up to 1 year from your travel date without penalty. Speak to our experts for the details around each option you are considering.
Many of our partners are offering specials for those willing to travel as early as late 2020, but still offering the safety of deferral (note: you may have to pay a rate increase for 2021). In addition, the US Dollar continues to deliver great value, particularly in South Africa.
