River of Gold Safari Adventure

A thrilling adventure in search of treasure; from fine dining in out of reach locations to viewing wildlife with the wind in your hair.

Get up close and personal with Africa’s fastest, biggest and loudest creatures.

Helicopter safari — there's a seat with your name on it

Flying above the vast bush lands in a doors-off helicopter you will encounter widlife in its element. A three sixty bird’s eye view of the unspoilt wilderness with a safari guide. One of the closest experiences to true flight in comfort. Hear the hooves, splashing of hippos and crocodiles… it's as close as it gets.

Game drives and walks — take a walk on the wild side

Follow the footsteps of elephants on one of natures oldest pathways on this dusty continent. Game walks and drives enticing all your senses: crushing petals, rustling bushes, recognizing the calls of birds. Learn about the creatures that spark your curiosity. Keep your camera close by and watch out for the Big 5.

Private aircraft transfer — prelude to the journey

A private flight with VIP passenger handling allows you to arrive in style, your first taste of this one-of-a-kind itinerary. This is only a glimpse of what's to come. Prepare to see Africa in ways you'd never imagined.

Conservation activities — step into the shoes of a game ranger

Take part in active conservation initiatives, such as game counts and tracking collar location, or support endangered species by helping to build habitats and feeding wildlife undergoing the process of rehabilitation.

Helicopter picnic — chase the sun and all it touches

Let the helicopter take you beyond the limiting 4x4 routes for a bush picnic experience. Sip champagne and snack on delicacies from a packed picnic basket. Wait till you realize that you are seated where a leopard was last chasing its prey, while listening to a hyena's distant laugh.

Treasure hunt — in search for real gold

Each clue leads you one step closer to your prey. Spot the single detail that sets it apart from the rest. Its not only the gold that will entice you; its true what they say; ‘its the journey that counts, not the destination’. The game itself is what you are here for!

Accommodation — you are taken care of

Its not just about the essential, its about making it pleasurable at every turn. The luxury accommodation in a rustic setting: private, fully air conditioned room or safari tent, with en-suite bathrooms and dedicated electricity. The trip is all inclusive — relax and watch the colours fade as the first stars come out, while listening to the sounds of the African night fill the gathering darkness.

Wining and dining — all that's missing is you

An executive chef creates exquisite dishes from local and exotic ingredients to bring your palette to life. Paired with world class wines and the highest quality service, we espouse an excellent standard of culinary expertise. We pride ourselves on dedication to quality, and our menus have been especially crafted to ensure the food is another highlight of your stay.
