Our operational offices are situated throughout the areas in which we operate, to ensure excellent service to the safaris that are under way and to be able to employ the people local to the areas that we operate in:- the safaris are of high quality, make use of comfortable and safety-orientated vehicles, informative, qualified guides and itineraries that are tailored to the clients' needs, to ensure that the safari meets with their expectations.
We are fully committed to supporting growth and development in the tourism and overall economy of Southern Africa, East Africa and Madagascar. In order to do this, we contribute positively to our communities and our environment through our Responsible Tourism Project GROW AFRICA.This initiative has undertaken the support of Rosemead Primary School in Cape Town, where children from impoverished homes attend a struggling government primary school. GROW AFRICA actively raises funds, and also is registered with Pack For A Purpose to alert our clients to the needs of the school.
Through GROW AFRICA, we have also undertaken the conservation education of the children and regularly take the children and our office staff on hikes in the beautiful surrounds of Cape Town, where our qualified guides teach the children about their natural surrounds and conservation. These children would otherwise never be able to access such areas, nor learn what the guides are able to teach them.
