If you are fascinated by animal behavior in the wild…….. then a safari hosted by a professional naturalist is ideal for you. Their depth and breadth of knowledge of the natural world is impressive and their passion for all creatures great and small is boundless.  We’ve been working for over 20 years with Stephen Mills – one of the very best professional naturalists and a highly engaging wildlife raconteur. Our animal behaviour safaris focus on iconic species and provide close encounters with Mountain gorillas, tigers and Indian wild dogs. Let nature’s experts open ‘pandora’s box’ on animal behaviour. 

  • In-depth safaris hosted by professional naturalists
  • Get the bigger picture and the whole picture on why animals behave as they do.
  • Learn what makes an animal tick
  • Discover what it’s like to think like an animal, rather than assume it thinks like us
  • Better understand  how an animal’s physiology effects its behaviour



Action Shot Safaris


Simon King in The Mara


If witnessing the wildest action in the bush and nature’s greatest spectacles ticks the boxes for you ………. then a safari with a professional wildlife film-maker is perfect for you. Wildlife cameramen spend weeks, months and even years in the bush, waiting for and predicting when something spectacular and big is going to happen.  We have teamed up with the most engaging and dynamic cameramen and wildlife TV presenters including Simon King and Chris Packham. You’ll get their professional expertise, their personal tales of the bush and much more….

  • These safaris are hosted by famous wildlife film-makers and presenters
  • Their knowledge of specific wildlife habitats and the predators and prey that co-exist there is unparalleled.
  • They know every lugga and tree on the horizon and the typical weather patterns.  
  • They are expert in capturing the best shots, from the best angles and in the best light. 
  • Their excitement and wonder when something big happens never diminishes and is infectious.


To see rare and endangered species in the wild invariably involves travelling to remote places in distant lands and living to nature’s timetable.  You’ll need to turn off your default buttons and no matter how far this takes you outside your normal comfort-zone, you can relax knowing that you are in experienced hands – as well as the professional host a member of our own staff is with you the whole time, taking care of the minute details and your welfare.
