Tin Trunk Safaris

The difference is
that nothing’s the same.

Some trips evaporate.

They’re taken, and almost as quickly, forgotten.
Other journeys rewrite who you are.


At Tin Trunk we believe that the
quality of the adventure requires an
understanding of the adventurer.

That through careful study and preparation,
your journey becomes more profound.


Designed. Not overplanned.

A thoughtfulness that positions the traveler to
find those indelible moments.


In the end, our goal is simple.

To guide you on a departure from other luxury
vacations. To leave you with memories
that never quite leave you.
