Authentic, honest travel experiences
We would like to show you the world the way it really is in all its natural glory. We can understand that you for example want to see a rhinoceros in Africa, but we believe you should see it in the wild in it’s natural habitat and not in a fenced-in area. We want you to experience the thrill of getting up close to nature and animals, feel as if you are the first human visiting a destination and get to know, why it is important to protect our few remaining natural sites and endangered wildlife.
We design tours, which show you the destination visited in an authentic and honest way. We often go off the beaten track and try to show you sights and natural highlights from a different angle. You can always rely on it that your tour will be an experience, something special, a unique adventure.
As our company name already indicates, we are specialized on tours and destinations where nature is the main point of interest. Of course we also visit exciting cities, mostly at the beginning or the end of our tours, but in general we concentrate on the beauty of untouched nature and the spectacular experience to see wildlife in its natural habitat. Through our tours we would like to make you more aware of nature, the relaxing effect is has and support worldwide nature conservation efforts. We only offer small tours, which are environmentally sustainable and where you get to experience what being out in nature is all about: no traffic jams, no time pressure, no mobile phone or internet – simply enjoy and experience the natural wonders of our world!
Small accommodation establishments, typical for the visited destination
Many business travelers enjoy the comfort of standardized hotel rooms. We do things differently! We believe that especially the smaller, owner run accommodation establishments give you the real, authentic experience of the destination visited. We make an effort to book small country hotels, remote lodges and little guest houses, each offering a different and very unique guest experience. We use small exclusive boutique hotels, tented camps out in the wild as well as little Bed & Breakfasts if they optimally complement the tour and route chosen. This creates a fantastic variety through-out your tour and you have the chance to meet local people, hear their stories and leave as friends.
We realize that each person is different and has different ideas on what a perfect holiday should be like. We therefore have developed a reservation system which enables us to completely custom-design your trip exactly to your liking. It does not matter whether you wish to do a luxury fly-in safari, drive through the country in a 4x4 rental car or simply wish to have a relaxing trip for your honeymoon – we have built up a database of tourism service providers including various accommodation establishments, car rental companies, local activity operators, flights, excursions, sights and highlights, which we can mix, change and adjust in nearly any way, thus making your holiday a truly unique experience perfectly matched to your budget, your available time and you liking.

Itineraries that make sense
When we prepare tour itineraries, we look at the whole picture. We take your total available travel time and design routes that take your personal sightseeing wishes into consideration, that make sense so that you do not have to travel in zick-zack and that still leave enough time for personal exploring and time to relax and enjoy. Travel distances between stops are planned in such a way that you can easily manage them and also have time to experience interesting sights and activities along the way. We give you advice on how long to stay at a certain destination, carefully weighing possible alternative sightseeing options and make sure that the daily routes do not get unnecessarily confusing.
We regularly visit the destinations we offer ourselves, test new routes and accommodation establishments in order to continuously stay up-to-date about new developments. We can design optimal tour itineraries, taking every mode of travel as well as your budget and personal wishes into consideration.
We take care of all the organisational aspects of your trip so that you can enjoy unique travel experiences, fascinating landscapes and untouched nature.
