When you think of an African Safari,  you probably think of big cats and wide open plains, right? Well, think again.



Reimagine your idyllic African safari on a traditional wooden sailing dhow


Dhows first arrived on the Swahili Coast with Arabic and Indian settlers.

Now used for tours of the Swahili coast’s tropical islands, dhow’s are a beautiful way to experience the wonders of the emerald blue Indian Ocean.
