About Us

Our Philosophy

As a team, we are committed to treading lightly on the land and giving back more than we take.

Over the years there has been a gradual erosion of the remote, wild places. Africa is our passion, and the preservation of its natural beauty is central to our beliefs and value system. Our core goal is to develop an unmatched photographic record of Africa’s remote and wild places.

We choose to invite an exclusive and small number of people to join us in on our specialised expeditions- or to work with us on our tough recces to record and choose what to offer the people who join us on a full expedition.

Our expedition ethics reflect our values. We work towards a mutually beneficial engagement with local communities and fellow travellers and in partnership with all those who work with us towards our shared goals.
