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

Outstanding customer service well above the call of duty.

"Natural High arranged a trip to remember ...accommodation first class, transportation on very long road trips was excellent. Spotless . air conditioning .. food and water. Rhino and Tiger sightings to die for.. local agents left nothing to chance ... we felt in the safest hands ... then when we off grid the virus struck... Natural High and their local Agent Banyan took total control and got us from the back of beyond to UK in very worrying and uncertain times. All without us being able to do anything at our end ...outstanding attention to detail. Worth every penny."

Personal service and excellent organisation

"This was our first holiday to be organised by Natural High. We made the enquiry on New Year’s Eve for a departure in February and within a few days they had produced a wonderful-sounding itinerary in Costa Rica. There were helpful notes for packing as they seem to have someone there who has been to any chosen destination. We did do some groundwork for flights but left it to Dial-a-Flight who were also most efficient. We visited the office as it is very local to home and everyone there was cheerful and interested in our upcoming trip. We were presented with a leather file which turned out to be the most useful item en-route for all our paperwork ..... and it smelled lovely!
The holiday was one of our best ever. Not just because we saw a plethora of wildlife, but because there was always someone waiting to whisk us to another destination, be it to the airport, from the airport or a boat to a lodge etc. And they did it with great charm and humour and were always very knowledgeable about any queries we had.
For the last 8 days we had a driver/guide who was just outstanding. He was very familiar with the 3 remaining lodges where we stayed and his rapport with the other staff and guides helped to ensure that we were really well looked after. He was a skilled naturalist, had a great sense of humour and was always putting our welfare first - he made a wonderful companion for the trip.
All of the above meant that it was a really relaxing holiday so that we could maximise our time looking at the flora and fauna of Costa Rica.
We would highly recommend Natural High ...... where next?!"

Natural High nailed it again

"Sledding in Sweden was our second wonderful holiday with Natural High. From the moment you speak to them to when you get home the service and attention to detail is wonderful.
Everything is so well planned and organised that you can just sit back and really enjoy your holiday. We couldn’t recommend husky sledding in the north of Sweden more. We all agreed it was one of the best family holidays ever."
