Client care, comfort & safety

At Oculus Travel, I take pride in delivering a deeply personalized approach to African vacations. I embrace the concept of ‘seeing’ to ensure clients always feel valued, cared for, and understood – that's why I named it ‘Oculus’ – truly being seen is at our very core.

Regenerative travel & conservation

I care deeply about the environment and conservation and about supporting the communities in the regions you visit. That's why I only work with properties and partners who share these values. I do everything possible to ensure everyone benefits from the Africa travel itineraries I create.

Trusted partners for peace of mind

I partner with leading in-territory experts in vetted destinations, ensuring you’re supported and safe throughout your trip to Africa. I work tirelessly to ensure your travel experience is seamless – with added local support while you're on the road.

Our Custom Journeys

In my experience, no two African travel dreams are the same. That's why I take the time to work with you and truly understand your travel priorities, requirements, and preferences before customizing your personalized journey. My goal is to realize your dream.

I am passionate about creating memorable experiences, and each year, I put together curated group tours centered on a special interest – from photography to golf, conservation, wellness, birding, and more! Meet like-minded travellers or contact me to customize a trip.

Thank you, Gayle, for organizing such an amazing experience and memories to last a lifetime. You did a terrific job, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you for tending to our various needs and for your patience and thoughtful insights throughout the trip. Will recommend Oculus Travel to all our friends.

Planning for the safari trip of a lifetime is one thing. Having that trip curated, supported, and guided by Gayle is quite another! Her extensive knowledge is simply priceless in helping you know how to prepare and pack for such an adventure and how to optimally experience the trip and the African bush from beginning to end.

As someone who normally plans my family vacations, it was hard to let go of control, but Gayle's itinerary exceeded all of my expectations, and I wish she would plan all my vacations from now on!
