Big Occasions

Big Birthday celebrations, anniversaries and multigenerational safaris

Why throw a party for hundreds of people you don't really know, when you can enjoy an unforgettable safari with the ones who really matter to you?

There are one or two experiences that are ideal for large families or groups of friends, offering a fully private setting, but the flexibility to cater for different appetites for activity

One of the greatest things you can do as a large extended family or a group of friends is to arrange a fully private expedition - whether that be using a private safari camp or chartering your own yacht in the Galapagos  

The best of these experiences are perfectly set up to cater for everyone from young children - who want to be active from dawn to dusk - to grand parents who will love the luxury of being surrounded by family, while enjoying the extraordinary wild locations in comfort.

The best of such safari lodges in Africa are all about flexibilty, which means that days can be planned on the hoof. Some days you'll leave camp at the break of dawn, carrying picnic breakfasts and lunches and returning to camp after a day's adventure in the evenings. Other days you'll take it easy and make short forays from camp, returning to enjoy the shade, food and wine.

And importantly, not everyone has to sign up to all activities. For those who want to switch off and just enjoy the incredible surroundings, catch up on some reading or just enjoy the privilage of not having to make any decisions, a private safari camp is hard to beat.

Beyond Africa we offer a range of remarkable experiences that are ideal for familes who value the chance to experience real wilderness in the hands of expert guides.

Reviews

Natural High

"I do recommend them."

Charles & Jo Mercey RT

Natural High

"They were incredibly helpful with choosing which camps we should go to and they took extra time to learn about us as a family so that they could be most able to advise us...I found them extremely willing to answer any questions and always responded in an extremely quick manner. Our itinerary went exactly as outlined and was very comforting to have someone every step of the way who was there to facilitate our moves between camps. We felt very lucky to have seen the parts of Kenya that we did and we would have never been able to research enough to affect the same things on our own."

Best holiday and a true "once in a lifetime" experience

"I've been on many lovely holidays, but have never before had the ultimate luxury of such a personalised itinerary. Natural High Safari's attention to detail and total consideration of our particular requirements was quite simply brilliant! Our guide Joseph taught us more than we could ever have hoped, and my sons are looking forward to taking him on an English Safari, though we'll be sorely challenged to make it remotely as exciting and wonderful as the trip we had with him."
