The Craft of Boundless Journeys

Discover your inner explorer with these once-in-a-lifetime adventures.

Empty out your bucket list with The Craft of Travel. 

A private bedroom under the
African skies

Hover

Make your way through rows of magnificent white boulders and cross a small drawbridge, and you will find Africa unfolding in front if you. Set amid the pure and untouched wild, you will be surrounded by African bush and uninhibited wildlife at its best. Experience a night under the stars in your own exclusive tree house in the middle of the African bush. 

Observe the great
Migration

Hover

Of course, you can brag about any African safari, but witnessing the “The Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth” during which millions of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles migrate, is a natural spectacle far beyond anything you can imagine. The sheer animal density will astound you.

Bush & Beach

Hover

In Africa it is easy to combine your bush with a little bit of postcard-perfect-beach-bliss. Try the Great Migration, and end with the Zanzibar Archipelago. Or the Best of South Africa where you fly into one of Kruger’s most famous private Reserves, with extraordinary sightings of leopard and spectacular year-round game viewing. Then touch down on your very own private paradise off the coast of Mozambique and experience island bliss 

Flying  Safari

Hover

Experience Africa from above. Float romantically across the Serengeti in a hot air balloon (champagne mandatory) and experience the ultimate view. Or if you are looking for something more adventurous, why not try soaring high above the Victoria Falls in a tiny microlight, a fixed wing flight over the rugged terrain of Namibia’s Skeleton Coast or even a spot of sky-diving in South Africa. That’s what we call a flying safari! 

Experience a private
Island

Hover

Let your days drift away on an exclusive 20-acre private island set in the Indian Ocean. One of the few truly private tropical islands in the world, nestling within Tanzania’s Shungi Mbili Island Marine Reserve. The island offers absolute exclusivity for families and friends to enjoy on a sole-use basis. Accommodating up to 27 guests when children are included and sharing rooms.

The Journey of a
Sea Diamond

Hover

Dive and Shine. An exclusive Diamond Safari into the depth of the ocean. After arriving in a private plane, seek the treasures of the Benguela current and dive for your own diamond. Indulge in beautiful meals created by your Private Chef in a private retreat overlooking the ocean. The perfect gift or another adventure to add to your bucket list.

Experience a glamping resort in Chile, located close to Torres del Paine, on the shores of an enormous lake. This luxury camp features 20 yurts with heating, water, phones and other modern amenities. The Camp has been designed for every guest to experience and enjoy the wonderful nature of Patagonia with great comfort. From within our yurts you will be able to hear wind or rain while you go to sleep, gaze at the stars right from your comfortable bed, and encounter one of the most beautiful landscapes of the world from your window or every time you step outside on our walkways. You will be immersed in a beautiful, aromatic native forest of coigües and notros, and enjoy watching and listening to the many bird species that live among us.

Glamping in
Patagonia

Hover

We offer the most diverse Galapagos expeditions available, ranging from 10 to 16 nights including Quito, Ecuador or the wonders of Machu Piccu, Peru. The sleek, stylish ship makes you feel like you’re in one of the world’s best boutique hotels, only with better, ever-changing scenery. Ships depart from and return to Baltra, Galapagos. 
If a modern luxury vacation on board a stunning ship to the Galapagos islands was not on your bucket list before, it definitely should be now.

Harley Davidson
BIG 5
