Extraordinary journeys for extraordinary people

It's all about you

It's all about you

We have the expertise, but it's your vision. We help you realise your dreams – it’s that simple. Let your imagination run wild and we’ll take your vision and turn it into reality, exceeding your expectations.

We do this by being extremely knowledgeable and starting completely afresh with each client; with over two decades of experience working with a team of specialists on the ground in Asia, we’ll work with you every step of the way, until we achieve the perfect result: a personalised, life changing holiday that becomes one of your favourite holiday memories.

Our clients tend to be well-travelled, seeking something different – something special – so we tailor each journey to our client’s individuality. We never devise the same holiday twice. We want our clients to come back with a genuine experience of Asia, by really getting under the skin of it. Whilst our bespoke safaris and holidays can never be cheap, perfection comes at a cost!

It's all about guiding

It's all about guiding

Your guides are the most important factor of your holiday as they open their world to you. A fantastic guide will transform the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Whether on safari in India, where they know where wildlife tends to roam and identifying bird calls, trees and plants, to spending time in the Himalayas and listening to your guide  inspiring you with their local folklore and traditions of their communities – information which has been handed down over generations. Whether it is an art historian in Rajasthan, bringing the Rajput pictures alive, or a Buddhist monk in Bhutan, enthusiastically divulging their religious beliefs to you. We have the finest selection of private guides for our clients, which is the best way to see Asia and we always source the best guides for each region.

It's all about your family

It's all about your family

We are renowned for our family safaris in Asia. We believe in the freedom of children and want to share the world of excitement and adventure that lies in Asia. Let them run wild with a sense of freedom that is rarely seen in the western world today!

We listen to you, we visit your home and talk to your family and we then assemble the most extraordinary, fun, educational safaris and holidays which are tailored entirely around your family! From white rafting or canoeing down the rivers of Bhutan, to camping out next to a river in India, to boating along lakes, cycling through regions, horse riding and visiting the local communities, visiting schools, the list is endless!

It's all about their families

It's all about their families

Equal to the wildlife is the rich, vibrant culture which makes up Asia with its variety of tribes. We give you the opportunity of spending as little or as much time in an uncontrived manner, learning about the people and their way of life. This is enriching and rewarding!

From going out into Nagaland and Assam, India where one can see many ancient tribes and cultures, to walking through the Himalayas and watching the farming community plough their fields by hand with oxen, or perhaps staying with families and learning what life is like for them – this is possible in the Himalayas in India with our village walks and also throughout India on our homestays, as well as seeing fishermen on Lake Inle in Burma, or chatting to your guides in the forests of Borneo whilst tracking orangutans, or simply observing village life around the tea plantations in Sri Lanka – this involvement adds another dimension to your holiday! Again, one learns so much about the Asian cultures from your guide.

It’s all about the e factor

It’s all about the e factor

Excellence, Exclusivity and Experience. This is what makes us stand out from the crowd. Our commitment to excellence starts with our very first conversation with you and continues right through to your return journey home.

This covers the places we choose for you, with the views we want for you, to the guides at each establishment and all the special extra touches that we incorporate that sets a standard for our safaris and holidays.

Exclusivity – this is the ultimate way of going on safari or holiday. Private chartered aircraft to whisk you away to each place, the very finest, private guides to enrichen your world, luxury, tented camps in the best wildlife regions with the best views, excellent cuisine, private villas and houses, or small, characterful lodges, boutique hotels or treehouses or personal homestays, which allow you to dictate your own pace of life and gives you complete flexibility and freedom. Best of all, is the feeling that whatever you witness is a private experience!

Experience – This for us is what it’s really all about! We deliver the finest experiences that Asia has to offer. We try and elevate every holiday and  safari and make it a journey of a lifetime. Whether it’s having a lesson on astronomy by the professor of astronomy in Rajasthan whilst looking at the magnificent outdoor observatory, or being told about Rajput and miniature art by an art historian, or being taken through the forests of Borneo by botanists, or being taken out on safari by some of the best naturalist guides, or having a cookery lesson with chefs, or learning to fly fish for mahseer with a professional guide, or being involved in a monk’s debate in Bhutan, or having a special blessing ceremony – for us, it is the people you meet and the extraordinary experiences that you encounter that marks the true success of a  holiday!

It’s all about wildlife, landscapes and architecture

It’s all about wildlife, landscapes and architecture

The main reason that most people travel on safari is for the wildlife! Coming from Asia, we know just where to send you each month of the year.

Understanding the seasons and the way rivers flow and how they affect game movements is just part of what we think about when advising you on the best regions to which to travel. There is no brief too demanding and we relish every challenge!

A beautiful view is the window to your soul! Wherever possible, we choose places which restore, revitalise and nourish you! From a beautiful lodge in the Himalayan mountains, where you look straight out across the snow-capped mountains, to taking a houseboat along the backwaters of Kerala in India, to walking up a mountain in Bhutan, the only sound being that of the monks chanting in the distance. Cycling through Madhya Pradesh through beautiful scenery, or riding along the Bhramaputra River in Assam, or trekking in the Annapurnas in Nepal with its staggering views, one is surrounded by heart-stopping scenery.

Asian architecture leaves one spellbound. From the temples of Bagan in Burma, to the magnificent forts and palaces of Rajasthan with their rich colours and use of gold and silver, to the brightly coloured, intricately-built farmhouses and dzongs in Bhutan, to the colonial plantations in Sri Lanka (as well as the renowned, minimalist style of world famous architect Geoffrey Bawa), to the Lutyens-inspired colonial designs in Delhi and Calcutta, the entire experience is a stimulating pot pourri for the senses.

It’s all about relationships – you and us

It’s all about relationships – you and us

For us, assembling a bespoke safari is personal. In order to achieve the level of excellence in each safari, we need to get to know you rather well!

Our relationship begins from the first conversation, through to coming to see you once we have established we are on the right track, right through to when you return. Each holiday is a journey of a lifetime and we strive for it to be just that. We spend as much time with you as  you require until we feel we have obtained the perfect safari for you and we become your right hand person, advising you on every little aspect of your holiday – from your clothing, to your luggage, to reading material, to your camera equipment, to arranging special surprises for birthdays and anniversaries. We try and make this as pleasurable and simple as possible for you!
