A specialist Big Cat safari company putting you in the right place at the right time to track the endangered Big Cats of the world; we combine the wildlife and culture of each destination to maximise your enjoyment in each destination.

How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...
Economic responsibilityWe encourage the use of local guides in every destination and with every local agent. Even on our specialist led safaris we try to ensure that a local guide is also used. We do not believe in taking jobs from local populations in order to provide for western needs.
Environmental responsibilityA direct contribution is made from each safari sold to the conservation and preservation of the big cats in the destination of choice. This contribution is made directly in a number of ways:
We make every effort to use responsible and eco-friendly local agents in each destination.
Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly local accommodation. Please bear in mind that it is not always possible to find eco-friendly accommodation in some remote destinations; if this is the case then we make every effort to alert the management of the accommodation in question to ways of improving their service with the environment in mind.
We aim to minimise our impact on the environment at the same time as retaining western standards of comfort.
- to the conservation of the big cats
- to local communities and projects
- to local conservation agencies
Social responsibilityWhere possible we will always use local suppliers in preference to others whether this is in the purchase of provisions, accommodation, transport or equipment.
