What We Do

We can help you plan your adventure. Whether your dream adventure is a trek or climbing expedition; jungle safari; white water rafting; mountain biking tour; sightseeing; special interest holiday; scientific mission, corporate team building, or a romantic break, we can tailor it to fit you. We specialize in tours for the individual, small groups or families, and in educational expeditions for schools and youth groups, and corporate services.

How We Do It

We offer our pre-crafted trips or can custom a complete tailor made service, especially designed for each client. Whether you are cost conscious or a ‘no expense spared’ traveller, we will work closely with you to design your adventure. Our advertised brochure prices will give you an idea of what you can expect to pay but we’ll provide individual quotes based on your itinerary, requirements, budget and number of people travelling. Naturally we will take care of the research and arrangements - from your international flight to the bed linen you sleep in and the food you eat. In short, we will do the work while you enjoy yourself, stress free.

We are experts in providing above average service to everyone, and 100% luxury trips for those who expect exceptional services. In fact, our speciality is luxury tours for discerning people with refined tastes.
