ENDLESS SKIES.
EXTRAORDINARY POSSIBILITIES.

Africa + Indian Ocean

For your first visit to Africa nothing can compare to the emotional impact of standing in this ancient landscape face-to-face with its extraordinary wildlife and scenery.

And even if you have already visited parts of this amazing continent, every return journey delivers a new sense of wonder.

We have one client who has visited Africa over 20 times with us but still we can deliver something exciting and new. We just need to understand you and what you are looking for.

The region has developed out of all recognition over the three decades that we have worked there, and the proliferation of lodges, camps and hotels means that there’s more need than ever for help and guidance in designing a trip that’s exactly right for you.

Only an operator who has personal experience of all the options can deliver a properly balanced itinerary…and, even more importantly, the best guides because the choice of guide can make or break a private safari.

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY
“We can't thank you and your fabulous company enough for giving us such a splendid time”

gorilla trip to Uganda

Uganda

best visited: July - oct

Uganda is an adventurous destination especially for those looking for something different. The incredible lush and unspoiled habitat remains unchanged and to some is still the most beautiful landscape in East Africa. The quality of the lodges is not on a par with the luxury of South Africa or Botswana but very comfortable and well-managed. The big draw to Uganda (and neighboring Rwanda) is the primates and the more advance planning the better, as Mountain Gorilla permits are strictly limited.

Botswana safari specialists cazenove and loyd

botswana

best visited: May - oct

This is where c+l began their safaris. Careful wildlife and habitat management has meant that a strict limit has been put on the number and type of lodges permitted. This makes a safari in Botswana more expensive but it has meant that the wildlife and wilderness experience is second to none, Mokoros in the Okavango Delta, quad bikes in the desert and traditional 4x4 game-viewing. For a honeymoon or anniversary there is real luxury and very special private dinners will be set up in romantic spots. For a family there is the ability to do a traditional and interactive safari.

tailor-made honeymoon vacation Seychelles

seychelles

best visited: Feb - dec

To be honest, the Seychelles a decade ago did not offer value for money. Now, the best properties really are world class. Flights to South Africa and to Kenya mean that, for those with the budget, the Seychelles offers the best beach add-on to a safari. The rich marine life means that for divers and snorkelers the safari continues. For those who want to explore more the ability to combine two or three different islands is easy. The Seychelles is unique with its small island culture and pace of life making it very appealing.

exclusive diving trip to Mozambique

Mozambique

BEST VISITED: APR - DEC

Mozambique is an ethnically diverse country which lies on the South-Eastern coastline of Africa. Primeval mangrove swamps alternate with unspoiled powder-white beaches where low-impact development is being carefully and successfully integrated with a unique marine habitat. Mozambique offers excellent diving around the Bazaruto Archipelago and the fishing in the waters of the surrounding islands is superb. The hotels and lodges have considerably improved in recent years and there are now a handful of fabulous rustic-chic hideaways.

ethiopia

BEST VISITED: SEPT - FEB

Ethiopia has recently emerged as the place to go - a land of contrasts and home to some of the oldest civilizations in the world.
The country has something for everyone whether it is hiking through the Simien Mountains delving into its history and its emperors' penchant for castles in Gondar, visiting the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela (sometimes called the eighth wonder of the world) or gaining an insight into the lives of the beautiful Omo people. Ethiopia is more suited to the adventurous traveler.

Malawi trip specialists cazenove and loyd

Malawi

BEST VISITED: MAY - NOV

A fantastic country populated by exceptionally kind and welcoming people and dominated by its beautiful eponymous lake. Malawi is a treat for travelers in search of the less-discovered. With the Great Rift Valley running through the country, there is a fantastic diversity of terrain from Central Africa's highest peak, Sapitwe, to the highland plateau and stunning Lake Malawi. The third largest lake in Africa, its translucent, pale green waters are thought to host the largest variety of fish of any freshwater lake in the world while its shores of amber-colored sand offer all you'd expect of a beach vacation. Malawi is often overlooked but it really shouldn't be.

extraordinary safari vacation Kenya

kenya

BEST VISITED: JUL-OCT DEC-MAR

The migratory herds and 'big sky' of the Masai Mara, the tropical rainforest, the North Frontier's rugged mountain terrain, and the sugar-white beaches reaching into the depths of the Indian Ocean.

wildlife and beach vacation Madagascar

madagascar

Madagascar encapsulates a range of different experiences all in one destination. In the East you can hope to see the endangered Indri, the largest member of the Lemur family, or spot humpback whales from IIe Sainte Marie Island.

And in the North West sit back and relax on some of the most unspoiled beaches we have come across and stay in one of Madagascar's more luxurious lodges.

exclusive desert camp vacation to Namibia

namibia

BEST VISITED: ALL YEAR

There are times in Namibia when the landscape literally takes your breath away: along the mystical and haunting Skeleton Coast; overlooking the vast and wild Fish River Canyon; amongst the roaring sand dunes of Sossusveli. In our opinion one of the best ways to see this spectacular country is from the air - whether on a private flying safari, or simply a scenic flight from one desert camp to another. But Namibia is more than just scenery: the Himba tribes provide an insight into some of the world's last nomadic peoples and the Damaraland gives a glimpse of some of the strangest wildlife adaptions on Earth.

Uganda luxury vacation to explore primates

rwanda

BEST VISITED: JULY - OCT
DEC - MAR

Rwanda is truly beautiful with its jungle-smothered volcanoes, its hills and valleys covered in a dense patchwork of banana, maize, sorghum and tea plantations, and its gorgeous lakes and rivers: it overflows with tropical lushness. As well as being home to the largest and most easily accessible mountain gorilla population in the Parc National des Volcans, Rwanda is teeming with bird-life in the magnificent rainforests of Nyungwe. Now well into the healing process of the genocide of 1994, Rwanda's people have created a remarkable museum as a "never-again" reminder; to visit is a deeply moving experience.

visit Victoria Falls  Zimbabwe

zimbabwe

BEST VISITED: JUNE - OCT

A beautiful and fascinating country, with the magnificent Victoria Falls, large wildlife reserves, great tracts of untamed wilderness and the evocative ruins of Great Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe offers much to inspire its visitors. This magnificent country, once our most visited African destination is opening up again and many of the guides and owners who sought work elsewhere in the world have returned. It is wonderful that so many of them are now back in their rightful place whether it be walking in Mana Pools or sitting with guests in a 'hide' in Hwange National Park.

luxury honeymoon beach vacation Mauritius

mauritius

BEST VISITED: APR - NOV

If you are looking for a lush, tropical island with incredible resort style hotels, Mauritius is for you. The pale-blonde sand, protected by coral reefs and set against a Bali Hai style backdrop of lush volcanic peaks makes it a  classic beach destination in its own right. But it also serves as the perfect post-safari-pamper add on. The Mauritian hotels have mastered the art of first class service but there is a caveat: this is a place where your choice of hotel can make or break the trip. It is vital to match your tastes - or your reason for travelling to the right resort and with our expert knowledge we can do just that.

wildlife vacation to Zambia in africa

zambia

BEST VISITED: JUNE - OCT

Nothing can compare to the intense thrill of seeing leopard at close quarters on a walking safari in the game-rich South Luangwa Valley with one of the greatest guides on the planet. And there's still more: three great rivers and an amazingly rich and diverse spectrum of wildlife and habitats make this relatively under-developed country one of our favorite parts of Africa. Here, you still feel as if you are exploring something almost undiscovered. As well as the incredible, thundering cascades of Victoria Falls, there are little known corners that we can show you.
