Why Us

 About Villas and Africa 


We have travelled and worked in Africa’s wildest places, hand picked safari lodges and villas that offer an extraordinary experience, identified guides that delight and educate and designed transformative experiences. We know that families and small groups thrive when they dictate the pace of their days.


We craft journeys for families and small groups that connect people with each other, and with the wilderness in Africa. Understanding the challenges of travelling with young children and multi-generational groups led us to identify experiences that offer flexibility and comfort, but those that also delight.

We don’t sell packages and don’t throw out specials. We design your experience to ensure it fits your family’s particular interests, and your needs. Working with us, you will be close to the process and together we will build the journey.


Every destination and lodge has been visited and photographed by us.


 About wilderness and sustainability Our choice of villas will always be about the experience, it's location and proximity to wilderness areas. Most of the wildlife properties are adjacent to national parks in private conservation areas where you can be sure of the best wildlife experience far from popular tourist routes. Even our urban villas are those we think offer a more remote and relaxed environment. All of the villas have shown the highest dedication to conservation, fair trade and sustainability so you can ensure that you are contributing in some way to conservation of these areas and it's communities.

About standards The villas in this portfolio have been hand-picked by us and do not pay to be on our site. We strive to visit every property and to monitor standards and facilities to ensure you can rely entirely on our recommendation. Some of them offer the highest international standards while others offer a more classical safari experiences. Once we know more about you we can help you find the experience that most suits your needs.
