African Wildlife Safaris
AWS was founded in 1985 by Steve and Sara Cameron after they had spent a number of years travelling through Africa and had been inspired by the people, landscapes and wildlife of this huge continent. Their knowledge and enthusiasm is reflected in the type of itineraries we create, whilst their extensive experience has helped us to create a range of diverse and well-researched African safari programs.
Our destination travel specialists have all travelled in Africa and are able to advise you on the best time of year to visit each area, which wildlife reserves and safari camps offer the best game-viewing, and the style of safari to suit your individual requirements.
Our philosophy has always been that tailor made safaris are not only the best way to protect Africa’s precious wilderness, but that they are the best way to experience Africa. A personally designed itinerary can take into account your travel style, budget and special interests and make the most of your time. In Africa “to see more” means to move less. A longer stay in the major parks will be much more rewarding than moving every day or two. You will notice that the emphasis throughout the brochure is on staying extra nights. Relax, unwind, enjoy.
Natural Focus was born in the year 2000 as a specialist division of African Wildlife Safaris. With two decades of experience in African safaris as our inspiration, our aim was to provide exceptional wildlife and wilderness holidays in areas of spectacular natural beauty around the world.
With a team of destination travel specialists experienced in these destinations we have created innovative and personalised tours to India, Bhutan, Canada & Alaska, Antarctica, the Arctic and South America. Each destination has its own brochure which features a range of accommodation as well as wildlife and wilderness experiences, cultural tours, cruises, rail tours, and wildlife lodges. We offer some escorted group tours and scheduled tour departures, however the main focus of our program is on creating tailor made, personalised itineraries for individuals and small groups.
