Group adventures 2025

If you are looking for a bespoke experience for yourself, your family and friends or a group (and you can include any of the destinations listed below here…) then please refer to the tailor-made safaris section of the website first. Of course, you can also cross-reference here! Guides where set, are named. If it is stated as “NON-PHOTO GUIDED” then rest assured you will still be able to have the full experience, but this will be more of a tailor-made adventure.

Otherwise, below are the group trips that are lined up for 2024. PLEASE check back to this page regularly to see updated itineraries and dates.

If you would like to get a flavour for the “type” of trip that a guided safari is, then check out the “About our Safaris” page.

Some of these trips are in the planning stages, but due to their nature we are announcing them early to ensure you have time to get them onto your schedule. 

To receive the full details of any of the trips below, what we’re looking for and how it will work, simply send an email to:


All trips are fully covered and bonded (although…we don’t do flights to/from the start/finish points!), as per the information later on this page (see “our commitment”). All prices are quoted as per person based on two people sharing accommodation. Single rooms/cabins/tents are available on some trips, but please enquire at the time of booking as a single supplement will almost certainly apply.

“On Location” trips are by waiting list only and revolve around where I am working, as the name suggests, “on location” on projects. From time to time, I will be able to extend my stay in those places when my work is finished, and host groups. To be notified of these opportunities when they arise, please drop me an email as they are by wait-list and invitation. These trips are not scheduled on any particular cycle, as the very nature of my work can be unpredictable, and can be available at short notice. Hence this is why they are not publicised alongside the regular group-focused departures nor do they feature on email newsletters. However, if you’d like to be on board to be notified, let me know (along with your preferred type of destination or experience) and if a relevant opportunity arises that would not be a regular scheduled trip, I’ll be able to send you an invite to join me.
