Embark on one of our signature journeys
Welcome to the little black book of Safaris. Each year we put together our Conservation Centric Signature Journeys - which are either run as small group departures or as a privately guided journey.
Each one of the Signature Journeys below gives our guests behind the scenes access to some of the most remote and pristine conservation areas on the African Continent and offering a unique cultural immersion in each region.
Tracking the Great Lions
Spend 10 Nights alongside Martin Meyer exploring three vastly different regions; from the Semi Arid Madikwe Game Reserve, home to the huge Kalahari Black Maned Lions to the Magical Timbavati Game Reserve famed for the rare and elusive White Lions before ending this amazing adventure in the heart of the Okavango Delta, home to National Geographic Filmmakers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert where over decades they have documented the prides of the Delta's unique hunting strategies.
This Journey starts and ends in Johannesburg, and is perfectly suited to add on a visit to the Cosmopolitan city of Cape Town.
On Foot with Martin Meyer
Martin Meyer is a specialist private safari and walking guide, with more than 20 years experience in the African Bushveld. A Master Tracker with a background in Anti-Poaching and conservation initiatives, Martin's knowledge of Southern Africa, along with the cultures, history and wildlife is astounding. Martin is a keen photographer with an unrivalled passion for sharing his knowledge of the continent with his guests.
On this 11 day private journey, you will find yourself immersed in the cosmopolitan melting pot of cultures in Cape Town as you ascend the Majestic Table Mountain, spend some time with the comical penguins of Boulders beach and visit some of the finest wineries in the Winelands district. You will spend some time walking through the African Bushveld with Martin, tracking wildlife and getting up close and personal with all the inhabitants that call this piece of paradise home; before we move into the magical Timbavati Game Reserve, home to not only the iconic Big Five – but also the rare and endangered White Lions of the Timbavati.
Experience a journey that will change the way you think and feel about Africa as you interact with locals and follow the premise of “live like a local”, we stray off the beaten tourist path and visit some of the best kept secrets as Martin takes you behind the scenes to show you his Africa.
in the footsteps of the great explorers
Take a step back in time with this unique private exploration, and follow the footsteps of great explorers such as David Livingstone, Robert Moffat, Henry Morton Stanley and many more.
David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer, is believed to have been the first European to view Victoria Falls on 16 November 1855, from what is now known as Livingstone Island, one of two land masses in the middle of the river, immediately upstream from the falls near the Zambian shore.
Robert Moffat, a Scottish missionary to Africa and Bible translator, who was known for his efforts to improve local living standards in Africa. He was also the father-in-law of the missionary and explorer David Livingstone. Moffat set up a missionary station within what is today known as the Madikwe Game Reserve.
Sir Henry Morton Stanley GCB was a Welsh journalist and explorer who was famous for his exploration of central Africa and his search for missionary and explorer David Livingstone. Upon finding Livingstone, Stanley claimed to have delivered the, now famous, line: “Dr Livingstone, I presume?”
Privately guided by Martin Meyer, this exploration is perfect for History Lovers, Wildlife Enthusiasts and anyone wanting to delve into a wondrous Southern African Expedition.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Martin is a highly guest-oriented expert on the flora,fauna, geology, climate and history of Africa. He is an extraordinary game-tracker with a remarkable knowledge of animal behavior. He can often predict "what will happen next". He is exceptionally attentive to the health, safety, satisfaction and welfare of his guests. My wife and I have been on a total of 7 safaris, two with Martin. No other trip, with very well known, expensive and highly rated international firms, could begin to equal the satisfaction and pleasure of having Martin as guide and leader."
