Nature Uncut Tours

About Us

Nature Uncut Tours was established in 2006 and is based in Cape Town, South Africa. Nature Uncut specialises in customised, small-group safaris with a particular focus on wildlife, nature and photography. We currently offer tours throughout South Africa, Namibia and Madagascar. If getting close to wildlife or immersing yourself in natural beauty are your passion, then book a tour with us. We offer a number of standard tours on this website, but any of these can be modified according to your interests, time-frame or budget. We visit the main tourist attractions of the region as well as selected cultural activities, but our tours always include areas of superior natural beauty and interest. Lodges have been carefully selected for their quality, comfort, excellent hosts and beautiful settings, and are usually moderately luxurious i.e. 4 star. The length of our tours varies from day tours to our longer safaris of up to 3 weeks or more. All of our tours are guided by qualified, THETA-registered guides with a background in natural history. Since we cater mainly for small groups, we ensure that you receive an in-depth and personal tour experience. Nature Uncut is a member of the Southern Africa Tourism Services Association (SATSA) and the Namibia Tourism Board (NTB), and all clients are protected by the SATSA financial guarantee. We are insured though Intasure Southcape. Our aim is to promote tourism in a responsible and ethical manner and we support responsible tourism ventures wherever possible. We do not support or encourage the unnecessary confinement, taming or hunting of wild animals for sport. If you are going to shoot animals, we would rather you do it with a camera! All the photos on this website have been taken during our tours and are available for sale. Please visit our gallery for further images. If you would like any further information about our tours or photos please complete the reservation form or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
