Although the majority of our holidays are tailor-made, there are times when certain, special experiences work better as a group led by an expert. Each expert-led journey is designed with the same attention to detail and that we put into every one of our tailor-made holidays.

Using our personal contacts we can create an experience designed in partnership with some of the world’s leading experts from wildlife conservationists to academics. Most group sizes do not exceed 15 people and many start from numbers of just eight guests.
