Olly Williams brings Natural High an unrivalled Arctic and Ocean offer born of over 25 years of Wilderness expeditions to witness endangered species in their intensely remote environments

Each wilderness trip we offer has been ‘ground-truthed’ by Olly. Over the years he has invested heavily in the most essential ingredient of a successful expedition - expert local knowledge. To this end he has personally sought out the services of elite trackers, wilderness guides, legendary conservationists and award-winning wildlife cameramen who have in turn become close personal friends and trusted expedition partners.

Today it is the services of these uniquely qualified individuals that we offer to you.

It's only recently that I've done anything really intrepid. When I do go I go with serious teams such as Olly Williams provides ”

- ALEX EDWARDS - FOUNDER NATURAL HIGH

"Olly and Suzi, a pair of artists who collaborate to make animal pictures.

One is left-handed, the other right-handed, and they draw marks simultaneously on the same page, creating images that are half-found objects, sometimes comic, often beautiful and always with the innate vibration of the wild.

They work up-close in the bush, the tundra, underwater, as close as they can get to their subject; and they specialise in predators: lions, sharks, bears, wild dogs, crocodiles, snakes. But there is an added element of danger, of commitment, daring bullishness, circus and adventure. The work has elements of performance and environmental advocacy. Olly and Suzi’s paintings are also wild and live outside the urbane, fashionable and expensive contemporary art market. As our own Waldemar Januszczak explained, this was not least because animals and nature are not where the art world looks for its art. It is a civic and urban calling, and those who want kitsch animal paintings of thunderous elephants and suicidal partridges aren’t going to get the expressions of zoomorphism in Olly and Suzi’s work."

Another Perfect Trip

"Morocco was our fourth trip with Natural High and true to past trips, the itinerary was right on point for our interest and goals, all logistics went off without a hitch and the service throughout the trip was high end. Everyone we worked with were friendly and professional. We had a fantastic time...Thank you!"

Tom & Karen Holterhoff

Perfect holiday from start to finish.

"Absolutely excellent service. The itinerary was spot on and the whole holiday worked like clockwork. The pre holiday notes and briefing were most useful too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natural High Safaris to others."

Angela R CR

Fabulous trip to Tanzania

"This is the second time we have used Natural High Safaris, and again they organised an outstanding holiday for us, this time in Tanzania, combining a safari and beach holiday that was top-notch. Highly recommend them, with huge range of experience and desire to really understand what it is their clients want - and then delivering! Thanks to Catherine Ronan."

An outstanding trip to the Himalayas superbly designed by Natural High.

"Natural High organised a 2 week family trip to Ladakh in August 2018. Andrea Hulme used her local knowledge to design an exciting trip that included a 5 day trek, white water rafting and numerous cultural visits and experiences. Their local partners Shakti were absolutely outstanding and we loved staying in the village houses as opposed to hotels. Their female Ladakhi guide Sonam was really one of the best we have every had on our travels."

"Yet again another great holiday arranged by Natural High - Air France tried to ruin it but Natural High and their local agent were very helpful in resolving the problems caused. ."
