Zimbabwean wins prestigious David Shepherd Wildlife Artist Award


We feel immensely privileged to introduce David Filer to you, a young Zimbabwean who has the world buzzing about his breathtaking art.

David was born in Zimbabwe in 1986 and has a degree in Information Design, though it is his love for animals and drawing that have combined to create a career in fine art.

Mara to Mana Invitational Safari


To be hosted by John Stevens and Calvin Cottar in the finest game-viewing countries from 21st August to 1st September next year, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience an outstanding safari journey.

Just twelve guests can be accommodated, so contact us now - if you’d like to be one of the fortunate few… or click here for more info.

Itinerary includes 4 nights in Cottars 1920’s Safari Camp, Masai Mara, 4 nights with the Mana Pools Safari Company on the banks of the Zambezi River and 2 nights at the Victoria Falls Hotel, with various exciting activities included.





In August, Nicci and Laura, her erstwhile marketing consultant and assistant, set off to the Victoria Falls for an educational tour of this buzzing international tourist destination. And, in true intrepid style, this dynamic duo set about experiencing everything our clients get to do, from staying in the hotels and lodges (all the while checking up on quality, comfort, service, facilities, etc), to perching precariously on the lip of the roaring curtain of water that is the Victoria Falls from the Zambian side!
