ADVENTURE WITH A CAUSE

Africa is a land of high drama, of epic struggle and perpetual rebirth.

To see this continent is to stare life head-on and be humbled by its savage beauty. I hope that one day you will join me and share in the splendor of this majestic paradise.

Our safari is an experience, not a tour. It will captivate your imagination and stir your soul.

The first time I experienced Africa, it captured my heart. I felt compelled to share this adventure with others. Join me as we embark on this life-changing safari, turning your dream into reality.

The Zanzibar Archipelago, located in the Indian Ocean 15 miles off the coast of Tanzania, is a breathtaking spot to escape from the world. You’ll enjoy clear, turquoise-blue water; shallow sandbars perfect for wading; and many small, nearly deserted islands virtually unvisited by tourists. Explore

the World Heritage Site of Stone Town, Zanzibar City’s old quarter. Or just go beach to beach between tiny fishing villages—each one's better than the next.

Trekking to meet mountain gorillas face-to-face represents the ultimate wildlife encounter. If you're intending to visit East Africa, then this is an experience not to be missed.
