About Epic

WE KNOW YOUR JOURNEY IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE PEOPLE YOU SHARE IT WITH
Our Mission

The Epic DIFFERENCE

For the past decade, Epic has tailored private journeys to some of the world’s most extraordinary places.

We live and breathe the travel experience and are passionate about creating unique and authentic trips for independent travellers. From the wilds and rich landscapes of Africa, North & South America, Antarctica and Australia, to the cultural heart of India, Nepal, Bhutan, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

Your trip is designed by our passionate and experienced professional guides. Having “lived” the product, we have a profound understanding of what makes the ultimate trip. We want you to feel the same passion, awe and respect for the places we love. This intimate and direct experience is fundamental to our ongoing success.

With Epic, you can see the world the way you want to see it, whether it’s an independent or privately guided journey. We customise every itinerary based around your interests and expectations. In our view, there’s no such thing as a “standard” safari or holiday. It has to be special and unique.

We provide an incomparable level of service, both before and during your time with us. We want you to see Epic as your personal travel concierge. Our service providers are often small boutique organisations, much like us. Over time, through our mutual objectives and shared philosophy, we’ve found each other in the crowd – like-minded people, who understand what going the extra mile really means.

Experience our amazing once in a lifetime journeys…and let the destination touch your soul.

Founder's Message
“Of course we love it when our guests talk about the accommodation or the food or the service, but more than anything we want people to make that deeper connection. The smell of wild sage, the dust filtered sunset, the respectful handshake of a guide, the call of a lion in the deep of night. Baubles and beads are lovely reminders of a journey, but we want to touch your soul."
