Africa: the different countries

We only offer trips and safaris to selected countries in Africa. All are places we know well. When you contact us, expect to speak to an expert in one or more countries who spends at least a month every year researching in Africa.

We’ll be able to guide you better than any website, even this one. Meanwhile, below is a brief, at-a-glance run-down of the countries on which we focus. (Although Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous part of Tanzania, and not a separate country, it’s included separately here for clarity.)
