Eco Adventure Safari


Elephant

It is our great pleasure to proudly present the Eco Adventure Safari, a 9 days/8 nights package!

This tailor made safari is for travelers who are:

- compassionate about nature
- eco-friendly oriented
- love a good adventure
- looking to combine all of this in one safari!

Something that is VERY close to my heart is that I believe in the saying "Take only pictures - leave only footprints".

More than ever is it important to follow this 'rule' as the human 'footprint' is now getting every bigger and wider.

We believe strongly in supporting conservation efforts, and we will do our part while traveling through these most amazing places.

SO, without further ado:
