For all of us at Greig Smith Travels, holidays arent "just holidays". They represent those rare opportunities in life to completely forget about work and the pressures of modern life. To spend quality time with family or friends and to reconnect with the natural world.
Fundamental to our philosophy is that responsibly managed wildlife travel should ultimately help benefit the habitats visited, as well as the local people and wildlife that lives there. The conservation and protection of wildlife and the environment is therefore central to our vision. Responsibly managed ecotourism has the power to change lives and is one of the best ways to conserve endangered habitats and species.
As destination specialists, we have travelled extensively, as well as led tours throughout our regions of expertise and we continue to do so. We have a simple formula that works: to only work with the very best people and properties throughout. From our partners on the ground to the guides we use, to specialist wildlife experts, right up to the choice of the most appropriate hotels for you.
We believe in good old-fashioned ideals, such as being contactable by phone whenever you need us. Technology is wonderful but reaching out to a real person whenever you need someone can't be beaten!
We're available 24/7, 365 days a year thru our emergency number.
