Find Your Tribe
The magic and mystique of Africa is wrapped up in the rich and vibrant tapestry of the indigenous cultures, and as the new world becomes more intrinsically linked with the old, the quest to find our “tribe” embodies a new era of travel. The way we travel is an expression of the life we live. We are more mobile, moving freely from one culture to another in search of life changing experiences with people from other ways of life that can offer wisdom and insight into their world.
There has been a spectacular explosion of native owned and styled camps and lodges. Always beautifully integrated into the vibrant and rich landscapes of Africa, these properties truly offer an experience unlike any other. There is a marked departure in design from the conventional style of camps and lodges. They rely instead on natural and locally sourced materials that create a perfect balance of beauty and livability. These Native eco-lodges offer an oasis of serenity, but they also deliver something new - an entertaining, sustainable and transformative experience.

3 Reasons to Experience
How it all Began
With the pioneering influences of men like Philip Osborne (the founder of our company), Ian Craig, Richard Bonham, Ron Beaton and a few others - a new approach to travel was created in the late 80’s – it was known as community partnered tourism. Private sector lodge owners, conservationists and rural communities joined forces to stimulate ecologically sustainable models based on wildlife, for the benefit of the local people in these areas. The thinking behind this style of travel was a huge breakthrough and it served as a leading example throughout Africa – providing healthy rural employment, better access to education and medical facilities and a marked increase in wildlife and environmental protection. The simple premise was that in protecting and managing the land for the benefit of both wildlife, the local people and international visitors – a healthy and vibrant rural economy was generated and a new generation of both locals and visitors alike would be more educated and far more committed to every aspect of conservation, both cultural and environmental.
