Our featured safaris are trips planned in advance and expertly guided by Jody Cole. These trips have set schedules and itineraries designed to showcase a particular region of Africa. Jody’s safaris include adventures to the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, treks through Botswana’s delta reeds, rides through the dusty Serengeti plains, and rhino tracking in South Africa. Every trip is unique and showcases the expansive knowledge Jody has acquired during her 15 years of leading trips and over 21 years of going to Africa. Attention to detail and gracious hospitality are hallmarks of all her trips.
Wilderness and Wildlife of South Africa
Imagine how it must have felt for Beryl Markham, David Livingston or Karen Blixen to set foot on African soil for the first time. That thrill of the unknown and the draw of the very creatures seen only in movies, pictures or our imagination is what still draws new generations to explore the “Dark Continent” known as Africa. You are invited to participate in a safari to South Africa.Read More
