Custom Tailored Itineraries

The first step in creating your itinerary is to find out more about you! Do you have an idea of where you want to go? What are your specific interests (wildlife, culture, birds) and what activities (horseback riding, hiking, cooking lesson) do you want to include? Let’s talk about your travel preferences for accommodations (luxury, rustic or a nice mix), activity level (easy, moderate or adrenaline rush) and any fears (flying in small planes) we need to know about? As you can see, there are no wrong answers! And the more we know about our travelers, the better we can design your adventure.

Covid-19 Travel Update

Covid-19 did not affect Africa in the way that it has the rest of the world. However, borders were closed for several months in 2020 and international tourism was halted. This caused a major economic impact on all those in tourism, especially our safari partners. Since then, Africa has welcomed travelers back with ever-changing Covid-entry requirements. We monitor this situation daily with our partners on the ground. Safari is the original “social distancing” experience -- journeying through remote, pristine wilderness where animals vastly outnumber humans. We are here to advise you about all new travel procedures in this new era of travel.

Is It Safe To Travel?

The safety and security of our clients has always been a priority, and now this includes the Covid-19 biosecurity protocols that are standard with all our partners. Many countries and individual properties are now certified by the World Travel & Tourism Council “Safe Travel” seal of approval. We work with each client to make sure they are prepared for travel to their destination.

Contact us for an initial consultation on planning your travel.  We advise planning safaris at least one year in advance to have the optimal choice in accommodations.

Responsible Tourism and Philanthropy

Travelers have an effect on the places they visit. Tourism dollars can have a positive social, economic, cultural and environmental impact. We limit our portfolio to working with safari outfitters and destination specialists who have environmentally and socially responsible operations that minimize impact on wilderness areas, employ local citizens and provide financial benefits for local communities.

Your professional guides will share their expertise on current conservation and community struggles as well as the political and cultural issues of the area. Knowing more about the lands you travel and the people who live there builds mutual respect and fosters cultural understanding. We can arrange visits to local communities, schools, clinics and homes. Duffle & Compass can also provide information about philanthropic opportunities that are specific to the areas you will be visiting.
