Best season: All Year
Indulge in world-class luxury across savannah and sea on the adventure of a lifetime

Travel to the wildest corners of Africa and the Indian Ocean, combining an incredible diversity of wildlife, landscapes and activities for the ultimate safari experience. Across our wide variety of camps in Zambia, you’ll find classic big game bush safari with predator action, an annual wildebeest migration, and sundowners under a glowing red sky. By contrast, a blue safari in Madagascar is an altogether different affair with vibrant coral reefs, mild-mannered lemurs and chameleons, and a white sand beach to call your own. What you’ll find across both countries is the warm, generous hospitality of our award-winning guides and staff.

Travelling by private jet or a seamless set of commercial flights, your journey can be tailored to your interests and preferences.
