Bespoke African Travel

Ready to be lived by you

Life's great adventure

A safari, the Swahili word for journey, is many things – from the excitement of setting off as the sun rises over the African plains in search of a pride of lions, to sipping a G&T while the sun sets once more revealing the myriad of stars above. It is one of life’s great adventures. We are here to make sure you get the most out of it.

The best guides across Africa

Through Bonamy you will have access to a large network of the best Private Guides Africa has to offer. The guides we associate ourselves with and recommend are all incredibly experienced and very well regarded within the industry.


Beautiful, hand-picked lodges

We offer first-hand knowledge of a huge network of safari lodges across Africa. We will only ever recommend a lodge we have not only visited before, but spent time at to get a full picture of the hospitality and wildlife offering.


We know wildlife

Choosing when to go to a particular lodge is as important as choosing which lodge. We will advise you where to go depending on the time of year and recent updates on animal movements, habitats and seasonal changes.


Above and beyond

Our commitment to ensuring you get access to whatever your heart desires: playing the saxophone as the sun sets or just a hammock set up overlooking the slow ebb of a wild river.


Support, wherever you need it

Through our partners, you will at all times be able to contact a local agent who will be able to assist you in an emergency.

Start your safari

Make an enquiry and together we will build your perfect safari. By enquiring it will allow us to really get to know who you are and understand what is important to you.

“Toby's knowledge, sense of humour and above all, passion, create a heady cocktail that for us has yet to be equalled. Lyn and I unreservedly recommend and endorse Toby and Bonamy to anyone who has a passion for safaris that needs to be fed or indeed anyone who is contemplating their first African Bush experience.“

"Planning our African safari honeymoon was made possible entirely due to Toby and his incredible guidance, recommendations and ease of communication. We had never used the assistance of a travel planner before, and were uncertain what to expect. Toby was who responded to our initial inquiry in our early stages of research. Wow—we consider ourselves extraordinarily lucky to have found him. Truly the most amazing trip of our life. Knowing that we will have Toby’s guidance makes us so excited and hopeful to return to Africa. Everything about our experience with him, as well as the accommodations and locations he arranged for us exceeded our expectations, and left us in awe of how beautiful South Africa truly is. We are so grateful for Toby!"
