Sub-Saharan Africa

The variety of destinations for exploration is astounding. From amazing West African music festivals to watching lion on the endless plains of the Serengeti; the boundless expanse of the Kalahari Desert and the luxury of our opulent African private houses, not to mention the world-class diving, there truly is something for everyone.

Diving in Africa

We do not pretend to know every country in sub-Saharan Africa from tip to toe but we spend huge amounts of time revisiting, researching and continually assessing the places we do know and finding the best guides and new locations. We travel throughout the continent - inland to the great wildlife areas, along the coast, reviewing different regions, habitats, concentration of animals, and variety of birds and of course the quality of the marine life. We assess safari lodges and camps as well as coastal lodges, their strengths, their drawbacks. Through our parent company, Original Travel, we can arrange your entire African adventure, diving and otherwise.

We know the best guides and the greatest adventures, and we are in close contact with the characters and tribal people of Africa. Wherever possible we use small, often exclusive owner-run hotels, lodges and camps and work with expert guides so that you will see the most interesting aspects of each country both above and below the waves.
