Old Mondoro Zambia, Walking safari encounter Lion

    Welcome to Extraordinary Journeys.

    In March 2016, Extraordinary Journeys (EJ) acquired Game Plan Africa (GPA) from veteran safari planner Vee Thompson and her husband Dave, bringing together two luxury Africa experts.

    As another family-owned and operated company with deep roots in Africa, we found GPA’s values fully in line with our own: deep knowledge of Africa, hands-on service and a strong ethos of supporting conservation and giving back to local communities. EJ is proud to continue sharing these values with every singularly crafted journey.

    Moreover, we have been delighted to have GPA’s excellent staff join the team. Our friend of many years, John Moody now works as one of our consultants, and Frances Bishop provides greatly appreciated sales/operation support, assuring you that every stage of your journey is faultless. Additionally, Vee and Dave are still involved, and “confident that Extraordinary Journeys shares the same excellent relationships with partners on the ground in Africa and operates in the same professional and caring manner with clients. [EJ] has the right expertise and knowledge of the African Safari business to carry on where [GPA] leaves off.”

    Elizabeth Gordon, co-founder of Extraordinary Journeys, and Vee Thompson of Game Plan Africa.
