We have just returned from another stupendous New York Times Travel Show! Thank you for having us, now good night!

As Simone de Beauvoir phrased it, “There is something in the New York air that makes sleep useless.” The Big Apple’s incredible spirit captures our hearts and imaginations every time we visit, as we know Africa does for every traveller who steps foot on her precious soil. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all who popped by our booth at this year’s show and we can’t wait to welcome you to Africa.

Helen, Geraldine, Anton and the rest of the team look forward to planning your ultimate vacation – simply drop us an e-mail at or enquire here.

Through the binoculars...

From the urban jungle of New York to the wilds of Africa…
