AFRICA EXPERIENCE OUTBACK TOUR
17 DAYS

The Ultimate Safari, hauntingly desolate and totally uncommercialised. We are alone in our Africa here, with only nature as our companion. But that is exactly why we are here, and we do not intend sharing the experiences with everyone. Open spaces, vast tracts of virgin Africa with its natural inhabitants. We go back in time to a period of San Culture, herds of wild animals and distant horizons. Will we ever be able to face civilization once more?
