We run Invent Africa along the following lines:
We focus on tailor-made safaris and adventures for individuals, families and small groups.
The Wild Leaders programmes has been developed for corporates.
We support those individuals and operators that are legitimate leaders in the world of conservation and wildlife management, as well as those who are pioneers in defining the principles embracing sensitive, respectful and responsible travel and tourism. We do not support mass-market tourism, trophy hunting or any of the operations that breed and use wildlife as commodities.
We choose to visit specific countries, cities, parks, reserves, private sanctuaries and wilderness regions, depending on the seasons and natural events occurring at the time of travel. These choices are based on providing our guests with the best access to a variety of different environments and habitats in order to gain the ultimate experience. We plan and book safaris and trips covering the following options: big game, photography, birding, walking and hiking, horse-riding, tracking, conservation and science, leadership, adventure, cultural, diving and sailing.
Typically, safaris are designed around the experience, the ability of the operators to deliver on that experience and then the camp or lodge comforts. Our destinations range from camping comfortably under the stars to the most exotic and luxurious bush lodges and hotels. We purposefully omit recommending specific camps and lodges as these are not always the best place to be staying – the different seasons and changes in management are the biggest criteria in this regard. Budgets allowing, we recommend that a specialist guide accompany our guests. Through a high level of educational input, this will maximise your overall experience and increase your general political, economic, social and environmental awareness of the specific countries you visit and the continent in general. All proudly born and bred in Africa and experienced in their fields, our specialist guides and naturalists accompany you for the duration off the trip.
We believe that no matter how efficient people may be on a computer or how well trained they are in the office, these aspects will never be able to replace the practical knowledge gained from years and years of dedicated time on safari. And no amount of time trawling the internet and searching websites is going to be able to offer you the personalised and comprehensive package we can.
