Nature Uncut Tours was established in 2006 and is based in Cape Town, South Africa. We specialise in customised, small-group safaris with a particular focus on wildlife, nature, culture and photography. We currently offer tours throughout Southern Africa, as well as Uganda and Madagascar. If getting close to wildlife or immersing yourself in natural beauty is 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. 

“This was my fourth trip to Africa and one of the best. I had a thoughtful, delightful "walking encyclopedia" at my side. Pepe Jones is, I predict, going to become a major player in South African travel because she is enthusiastic, inquisitive, a sympathetic and good researcher, anticipates questions and interests and is prepared for them.”

Lodges have been carefully selected for their quality, excellent hosts and beautiful settings, and are usually moderately luxurious to luxurious i.e. 4 to 5 star. The length of our tours varies from day tours to 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 through Intasure. Our aim is to promote tourism in a responsible and ethical manner and we support responsible tourism ventures whenever 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 some are available as prints. Please visit our gallery for further images. If you would like any further information about our tours please complete the reservation form or send us an email. We look very forward to hearing from you!
