We are Travelers

​Our travel changes lives

We are first and foremost travelers who love exploring new places and pushing ourselves a little out of our comfort zones to grow and see the world differently. Travel changes us each time and we believe in creating trips that have that same lasting effect on you.

Every journey is unique

For that reason, we understand the importance of curating a trip as unique as you. No two itineraries are ever identical because everyone’s interests, comfort levels and senses of adventure are different.

We are a team

Perhaps because we were founded by a mother-daughter team, we care about each other and work together like a family. This means you have the brain trust of the entire company collaborating on your trip instead of an individual.

We have been there

We place a premium on education. Every year, our team spends a combined 9+ months on the ground researching new camps, tracking wildlife trends, and identifying the best guides for your safari.

We care about you

You’ll never find us bragging about the number of people we send to Africa each year or referring to clients in terms of ‘volume or buying power’. We really enjoy getting to know our travelers (it takes time to plan a safari, after all) and build relationships that span decades and many repeat trips.

We love a bargain too

We translate our relationships on the ground, knowledge across Africa, and practicality into a trip that offers exceptional value for your money and fun surprise ‘value adds’ along the way. If there is a “special” deal on a property, we will find it for you!

We have a member of our team available to you 24/7 during your travel.

A mother and daughter run company

Years of living and working in Africa have instilled founders Marcia and Elizabeth Gordon with a sure sense of what makes a memorable safari, whether it be in Asia, Australia, South America or Africa. 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” – comfort, adventure and style.
