"Pictus are an exceptionally well organised, thorough and dedicated company offering trips to some of the remotest and most difficult to travel to areas in Africa. I had the huge pleasure of travelling with Tom through Chad in March. He took our safety and comfort very seriously and the entire group were blown away by how hard he and the team worked to keep us comfortably despite the blistering heat and incredibly remote country we were travelling through. I have taken hundreds of safaris around the world and this was one of the best organised I have ever taken. Beyond all this the Pictus team are remarkably knowledgeable about the areas they visit and the wildlife we encountered. I would give them 6 stars if it was an option."

"From start to finish every stage of my trip with Pictus Safaris was faultless. A standout itinerary was followed by quality customer service and support, with clear communication throughout the booking process. All aspects of the tour were taken care of, and all requirements were met, including catering for a vegetarian diet, allowing me to fully immerse myself in the experience."

"My trip to Tuli was really special, all thanks to the work of Tom and the Pictus Safaris team. Being able to track down wild leopard and cheetah was a dream come true. Everything went smoothly from my first email to Tom and I can’t recommend Pictus Safaris highly enough."

I had an excellent trip to Uganda a two years ago with Tom. He had planned our itinerary meticulously and was an excellent photography guide - Always willing to offer advice without being pushy. Different primates and colourful lizards were everywhere, but the highlights included a trio of lion cubs at Murchison Falls that had been left hiding alone in the long grass, a large troop of chimpanzee eating from a fig tree in Kibale, and just how close you could get to the rhinos at Ziwa.

Travelling with Pictus Safaris, was easy and I had a great time as it was so well organised. I never had any worry about any of the arrangements, they took care of every last detail which made the trip that much more extraordinary.
