I’m sure you’ve watched the evolution of our business as a few years later, investment by our team and family, led by Thierry Dalais, brought Norman Carr Safaris together with Chongwe Safaris in the Lower Zambezi.
Since then, we’ve grown, building Chinzombo, supporting African Parks in opening up Zambia’s Liuwa Plain, where we established our luxury lodge King Lewanika, and creating the stunning Miavana in the island archipelago of Nosy Ankao off the northeast coast of Madagascar.
It’s important that we stay united as we grow, and so I’m excited to announce that this year our family and camps will come together under one name - Time + Tide.
This consolidation is a huge step toward telling a consistent story that raises awareness of the extraordinary wilderness in Zambia and Madagascar and sets the stage for more to come.
Our 70 year history began with Norman Carr, who pioneered a community and conservation based safari experience in Zambia. This heritage continues to inspire us as we venture as guides and guardians to some of the most remote places on Earth.
Most of the 500+ people in our team are from the local areas where we operate. In Zambia, many of the team were trained by original founders, Norman Carr and Chris Liebenberg. Several still work with us and now some of their children and grandchildren have joined the fold. We have a similar philosophy in Madagascar. Our team have been an important part of the evolution from the three separate brands to become part of a stronger and unified ‘Time + Tide’ brand.
You too are partners in our story. As modern-day explorers, you are helping us preserve the wild places we would like to treasure for generations to come. So, I want to reassure you that even though our name is changing, our people, relationships, values, and heritage remain.
We are glad to have you on this journey with us and to celebrate our new beginning.
