"Africa is a place of passion, enchantment and incredible diversity. Whales, wines, wilderness, historic gardens, bushman paintings, the panoramic Garden Route as well as polo fields, the magnificence of the great migration. The joy of viewing a lemur, not to mention contemporary art, warm smiles, sunny days, glorious sunsets and our Grands Chefs too. So much to do on one continent!

The fact that each of these 2 camps are owner run or owner managed makes them a truly magnificent experience."... Read Moreless
