Travel & Courses

We invite you to share our journey

We create unique wilderness experiences and meetings. we are deeply engaged and strive to create travel partnerships that contribute to the upliftment of local communities, generate income for nature conservation and promote authentic dialogue and understanding. we pace our itneraries to give us time for reflection and dialogue.

This past year has brought enormous challenges to us but mostly to our partners in Africa many of whom are dependent on income from tourism to sustain not only them and their families but also the protection and conservation of their environment.

On the plus side we have been able to develop a project e have long dreamt of. We are creating a Nordic Safari experience with our beautiful farmstead in northern Sweden as a base. 

For further information mail us at:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

After seven trips with Marika, four to Africa, we are now booked for our eighth, to Botswana this time. Why?  To travel with Marika & Simon gives so much more than expected. They go beyond the normal tourist experience and create authentic meetings with people , whose stories give insight & understanding. A visit to Simon's chilhood friend on his farm in South Africa & to meet a local traditional leader are just 2 examples. A vist to a school in Amhara province in Ethiopia & to then be invited home to our local guide  (another of Marika's network of friends) for coffee is another. In addition to this add a friendly and professional outlook, openess and flexibility when an unexpected event of interest presents itself. They create a friendly bond within the travel group & don't neglect the more established tourist attractions.
