Lightfoot’s Africa experts have vast first hand experience of luxury safaris, with all the team having lived and worked there at some point in their life. Over the years, we’ve developed excellent relationships with the best local guides, luxury lodges and safari camps. 

Beyond Africa our favourite experiences include meeting orangutans in Borneo, whale watching off Western Australia and tracking tigers in India.
