Through extensive research and planning, our clients have discovered previously unknown Roman shipwrecks, found a new species of killer whale, rehomed giant tortoises by helicopter, and operated the first private submersible in Antarctica.
As a team, we are dynamic, driven and share a passion for meaningful travel with a focus on conservation, while uncovering the world's best-kept secrets for our clients' private adventures.
We have well-located offices in Holland Park, close to the leisure facilities of Westfield Shopping Centre and only a few minutes’ walk from the Central line and overground stations.
