“As photographers, making sure that we would have access to the best possible guiding and locations culminated in a truly magical vacation.
 The team at Bonamy educated us about how safari guiding works, allowing for some rather spectacular photo opportunities.
 Careful consideration of our unique requests was always a part of their recommendations.”

CONSERVATION
Bonamy is committed to the sustainability of Africa’s stunning wildlife and
many distinct habitats. We believe in ethical game viewing that respects
animals and the environment. We promise we will only ever send you somewhere that shares our core values.
With every safari booking, we donate a percentage to our chosen charity,
It’s a charity that is close to the heart of our Rhinos Without Borders.
founder, Toby Pheasant, who has spent time working with the great cause.


Run by &Beyond and Great Plains Conservation, Rhinos Without Borders aims to move one hundred rhinos from game reserves across
South Africa to secret locations in Botswana over the next few years. The intention of the project is create a new population of rhinos, which can
grow in number away from poaching hotspots.
Through our connections with this fantastic project, we can organise for  you to spend a day with a local ground team as they work to save the rhino –
truly a once in a lifetime experience.

NOTEBOOK
The humble notebook is a key part of any guide’s kit. It’s where we record everything that we see, hear and smell.
It’s also where we note down the sometimes tricky questions we get asked by guests and need to
remember to get back to them on.
Our notebook is our online blog, where we update you on all the wonders of Africa from the latest conservation projects to interviews with safari
experts, to the best vineyards to visit in Cape Town. It allows us to engage with a wider community, all sharing our passion for travel and adventure.
