One Day Experiences

Africa, conjuring up thoughts of incredible experiences of wildlife, history and culture.

This is where we come in.  Let us take you on an experience in the Eastern and Western Cape of South Africa.  Based in the Karoo, we share this area of vast plains, scenic beauty, and abundant wildlife, from a local's perspective.  The Karoo provides a historical record of over 200 million years of evolution, you may be treading on fossils without realizing it!

Let Mother Nature seduce your soul.

Our hospitality and adventures connect the sights, sounds and smells of wild animals, history and fly fishing, making you feel like one of the locals.

Try one of our Wildlife Safaris, Fly Fishing Safaris, Cultural and Historical Safaris, or mix and match and make up your own!

We personalize our tours. 

Make memories with experiences that you will be sharing with friends, and stories to tell your grandchildren.

We've listed a number of African Experiences in the general vicinity of Somerset East for you to add to your trip. Whether you're in the area and have a day spare to enjoy some scenery or wildlife, or you'd like to build your own tour based on these day trips, it's all up to you!  Let us know where you land when coming to South Africa, and we can arrange a pick up and some sights along the way.

Fly Fishing with an experienced guide

Experience Wild Fly Fishing in the Karoo.  Think along the lines of "Fly Fishing in the Yemen", as this area is classed as semi-desert, but the waters are rich with insect life and the trout grow phenominally!
