Director Statement


I believe that everyone should experience a safari in Africa. Not only is it a chance to immerse oneself in the pristine beauty of the African wilderness, but it is also a chance to embrace the raw sense of adventure that comes in losing yourself in the unexpected magic that waits around every corner. Africa is a place of miracles and wonder, a place of stillness and primordial beauty. It is everyone’s heritage, and responsibility. But more importantly, everyone should celebrate this unique continent, and take whatever opportunity they can to experience it and take time to soak up the wild places of Africa – it really will have an impact on your life.
