Explore our top African destinations

Years of living and working in Africa have instilled founders Marcia and Elizabeth Gordon with a sure sense of what makes a memorable safari. It is a sensibility that is shared by our team, most of whom have traveled extensively and lived overseas. We truly believe that you can “have it all” on our best safari – comfort, adventure, and style.

Luxury South America travel

South America is renowned for such destinations, from the ice shelves of Chilean Patagonia to Peru’s sacred valleys and the pristine beaches of the Galapagos. We pride ourselves on being experts at what we do, and are focusing on the areas we love and know best: Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Colombia.

In response to past clients asking us to send them on the best safari “somewhere as life-changing as Africa,” we have distilled the essence of an extraordinary journey out of Africa: incredible natural environs that offer exclusivity, personal service, expert guiding, and commitment to the local communities and conservation. In short — Travel that nourishes the soul.
