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.

How about a safari in the United States?

The United States is a patchwork of national parks, national forests, public lands, state preserves, and thousands of private lodges, camps, and ranches. Even though we might be itching to stamp our passports, now is time for a great reminder that our own country has some of the most diverse, isolated, dramatic, and beautiful terrains in the world. Find your best safari close to home!

Discover some of our favorite places around the world

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.
