Group Tours

Introduction

Although we specialise in tailor-made individual holidays, we do appreciate that there are people who prefer to travel as part of a small group. Featured below are a selection of quality small group safaris (and information on specialist ‘photography’ workshops) which operate on a scheduled departure basis. These have been specifically chosen because they offer a fantastic itinerary and are run by very good companies. We have given a brief description and specific costs for the departures listed (click on the safari name for a more detailed itinerary). For further information, please contact us.
