Wishing you all a Festive Holiday Season and Happy New Year.

To celebrate the countdown to the Holidays, we have created this Holiday special video with some of our favourite clips we took on safari this season. And it wouldn't be a Holiday video without a Christmas song 'African' style! We do hope that you enjoy it.

Since the late 1880's, the Carr-Hartley family has been the living definition of the great African adventure, as hunters, as big game trappers, as safari operators and as conservationists. 

History ›


We offer privately guided safaris spanning 7 countries across Southern and East Africa. Our portfolio includes a mobile camping unit, as well as our favourite luxurious camps and lodges that we have been visiting for the past 14 years.
