Selecting the perfect safari lodge (for you) may appear pretty straight forward, but it took us years to learn how to ask the right questions and get beyond the brochure talk.

Our experience in planning the logistics and executing safaris in Sub-Saharan Africa leads us to what we believe to be the ultimate seven, hence, “Ultimate Africa”, but time, budget and understanding your unique tastes are what drives the right decision.

Our safari begins in the southernmost point of Africa ~ a place where two oceans collide and mountains make for an unforgettable skyline. We start with adrenaline spiking activities in Cape Town then move out of the city to nearby pristine vineyards.

After liberating you of your jet lag, the adventure begins. We make sure you have your own PC-12 the entire way maximizing the time in each locale while adjusting time spent in any experience along the way. Your traveling butler makes the transitions seamless and your videographer has your family’s social media buzzing daily while both leapfrog ahead in a smaller single engine plane.
