Environmental care

Wildlife watching is often high up on people’s list and we create intimate and bespoke safaris where game viewing does not disturb the wildlife and the ecological impact on the surrounding area is minimal. Sense Africa also has a passion for nature and conservation, providing an environmentally sound and ecologically friendly experiences. Jenny Bowen, Director of Sense Africa, is a professional ecologist and this ethos is woven into Sense Africa.

The scenery of Africa is so varied and there are many unique and memorable ways to explore it. Why not hike the mountains of Malolotja, mekoro the Okavango Delta, night safari in Etosha, dive the Indian Ocean, camp in the bushveld of Hlane, sand board the Namibian dunes or simply sit by a waterhole and watch the wildlife come in. We want to make your holiday in Africa special for you and in inspiring surroundings.

Cultural support

Cultural experiences are a strength of Sense Africa and these are carefully managed so that everyone benefits. Visit traditional communities to learn about the local way of life, spend time in a school, join a church service, meet a traditional healer and have the bones thrown for you or even participate in a much needed community project.Let us know what you want to do and we can arrange this for you.
