    Small Group Travel

    We produce a select number of carefully curated small group trips. These meticulously crafted journeys for an intimate group of like-minded guests offer the same level of exclusivity and individual attention as our tailor-made travel, plus more. 

    Each trip is accompanied by an owner – either Christopher Wilmot-Sitwell or Henrietta Loyd – plus hand-picked specialists, guides and leaders. This ensures unrivalled insider access that you wouldn't normally be able to achieve unless you were travelling as a group, allowing guests to experience the destination in a very special way. We design incredible one-off experiences that enable the group to enjoy extraordinary private access while staying in the very best hotels and lodges in the destination.

    Each trip has a fixed number of spaces, set dates and a set price per person. Guests can travel alone, with a friend, as a couple or with a group of friends.

    This is the perfect way to travel – in the safe hands of true specialists.

    Specialist guides

    Small group travel gives you an amazing opportunity to spend time with true experts in their field. Each trip is accompanied by an owner – either Christopher Wilmot-Sitwell or Henrietta Loyd – as well as top specialists, guides and leaders. 

    Travel with like-minded people

    Our small trips often form the beginning of life-long friendships. Much of the journey is spent as a group, but there is plenty of time to relax and enjoy your own space too. Henrietta and Christopher are brilliant at reading their guests and being proactive and reactive to the flow of the trip.

    Our small group trips are in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world. With that in mind, most of our itineraries include an inbuilt donation to a local initiative that you are likely to visit on the trip.

    The price of all of our small group trips includes domestic flights but excludes international flights. We suggest flights for our clients that work well with the itinerary and are happy to book and manage these flights. However, guests can also book their own international flights if they would prefer. 

    We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey. 

    We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility in order to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility on any one of our small group trips.

    We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.

    Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.

    We have put the relevant measures in place on every one of our small group trips, so that we are ready to welcome you safely. Sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties in which we will be staying are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. 

    Each trip has a set price per person. The pricing of each small group trip can be found on the individual trip page that details the includes, excludes and single supplement cost if applicable. For the latest details on deposit and balance payments and schedules, please get in touch to speak to an expert.
