Count yourself among only a handful of people who have ever had the privilege of staying and sleeping upon this great white continent. Never before has such a journey been possible. Are you ready to claim your place?
Encounter the incredible wildlife
Start your journey in the Kruger national park and experience a contemporary African safari that redefines the meaning of connecting with nature.
With private access to 33,000 acres of one of the world’s most iconic wildlife reserves, enjoy a front-row seat to some of the most exciting game-viewing on the continent and find out why this region is affectionately called “Lebombo, land of lions”.
Twice daily game drives also showcase this diverse landscape’s rocky outcrops and the pristine settings that offer adventure at every turn.
This immersion in nature is often deeply moving and demonstrates the potential of the African wilderness to quiet even the busiest of minds, providing stillness at a time when the demand for our attention has never been greater.
