Return to the cradle…
When not absorbed by prides of lion, lithesome cheetah, gargantuan elephants arriving at a waterhole or elongate giraffe, you will be equally overwhelmed by the birds.
African birds are colourful and generally easy to see and photograph. This is nowhere as true as it is in Tanzania and Uganda, destinations of two of our most popular and enduring bespoke tours.
We shall travel through regions where some of the best birding in Africa can be happily combined with the world’s most exciting wildlife viewing. Accompanying us will be our fine driver-guides – endlessly patient and accomplished companions who will make sure we really do have the experience of a lifetime.
Madagascar’s natural environment is arguably the most weird and distinctive on our entire planet. Separated for eons from the continent of Africa, Madagascar hosts an exceptionally high degree of endemism: not only among its birds but also its plants, trees, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects.
If there is one thing in life you must do it is to make a pilgrimage to Africa. This enormous continent, the cradle of our species, is the sole place on earth that you can still witness an extant mega-fauna. To stand on the edge of the Serengeti and gaze out over vast plains teeming with enormous herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle - comprising some 3.5 million large mammals - invokes a memory as visceral and indelible as any you will ever encounter.
