Luxury Experiences in Africa

The diversity of the African continent is astounding. From the exotic souks of Marrakech and the sandy swathes of the Sahara, to the Serengeti’s Big Five and tropical islands in the East, this is your go-to guide for some inspiration on designing the ultimate luxury adventure through Africa’s wild spaces.

Our bespoke Africa itineraries ensure a unique insight into the world’s second largest continent, from unusual perspectives and in thrilling ways. By ensuring the top-guides, precision planning and an unparalleled expertise of the continent, we can send you on private adventures to cultured hotspots and wildlife stomping grounds.

What to expect

Soar above Victoria falls in a helicopter, enjoy exclusive access to experience tribal rituals, accompany expert guides in the search for unique wildlife and unveil caves tattooed with ancient rock paintings. Contribute first-hand to the conservation of endemic species, float from one secluded island to the next onboard a superyacht, or simply enjoy a wealth of private and sun-soaked beaches for a spot of rejuvenation.

Taking design cues from their wild surroundings, our accommodation options are a large part of the experience, so we like to get it spot on. Be it redefining riad luxury in Marrakech, architectural fascinations blending seamlessly into Namibia’s desert-landscape and boho-interiored properties available for full buyout. Or for something a little different, stay in one of our hand-picked luxury tented villas nestled into the African plains, the epitome of modern luxury in a realm of their own.

Wildlife and Conservation

Awaken to the jungle’s call or the sounds of the bush… If it is seclusion you are looking for, then Africa’s wetlands, rainforests and savannahs is where you will find it. Privacy and space to roam is plentiful, as is the wildlife. Picture thatched villas overlooking the Indian Ocean on a private island in Mozambique’s archipelago, sunrise safari drives through the African bush and life above the clouds in Rwanda’s mountains for mystical sightings of their famous inhabitant, the Gorilla.

The work of our conservation charity, Pelorus Foundation, has brought about many unique and exciting opportunities for guest involvement with conservation initiatives close to our heart. Please contact one of our team members who will be happy to chat about incorporating a conservation experience into your adventure.

On the Water

The allure of the East African coastline is irresistible. From idyllic Indian Ocean islands fringed by jungle and host to rich biodiversity, to ancient history and a colourful underwater world. Take a step back in time through an Africa rarely visited and embark on an incredibly immersive yachting itinerary which incorporates wildlife, adventure, history and culture in an exciting way. Or, experience a safari in a new way with a stay at a waterfront camp exploring via mokoro (traditional canoe) and floating down the mighty Okavango Delta.

‘The East Coast is one of least explored parts of the world in the eyes of the superyacht industry, however with Pelorus to assist, you can discover new horizons, incredible natural events and a team who can provide something truly magical for your guests.’ – Elise Ciappara, Head of Yacht Expeditions
