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.

THE PERFECT TREK!

"Vanessa from Natural High Safaris provided a very responsive,personal and bespoke service which in turn led to a perfect trip, that was without fault! From our pack mules all the way up to our guide, Oulaid, it was outstanding. We were guided through the most beautiful and remote countryside to camp sites with the most awesome views. Oulaid had really thought about our route and request to be off the beaten track. It was a delight that we did not see any tourist for the whole trek. Our team were professional,hospitable and friendly, delivery a very well prepared and comfortable camp each evening.The camp chef did an amazing job bearing in mind the remoteness of our location, conjuring up very tasty and varied meals each day. If I could book another trip tomorrow I would.Next year beckons!Well done all!!"

"Fantastic accommodation recommendations in small boutique hotels"

Ian And Jo Ashby CR

I will definitely plan an expedition with this company again.

"They promptly provided an itinerary in response to our desires. Feedback on the plan was well received. Closer to the time we were connected with our guides to further hone our trip. A group of 5 women, arriving from various destinations, camping and lodges in the desert with extraordinary guides. Yes, the cliche works here...a trip of a lifetime."
