We're building our team

We like to think about careers not jobs. To us, a job just sounds like a means to an end... something you do for a finite period of time and then move on. A career is about your journey through working life. And as no journey makes sense without knowing where you're going, our focus is to understand your career goals and be proactive about creating the best environment possible to achieve them.

Meet our founder

Experience at the helm

Founder and Director Ben Morison has worked in travel for 17 years. He grew up in Kenya and South Sudan and has been closely connected to travel & Africa all his life. In 2004, he set up a specialist travel company called Imagine Africa, based in the UK. Over the course of the next 10 years, he grew the business to include worldwide holidays and renamed it Imagine Travel. In 2014, with Imagine Travel having become one of the leading tailor-made travel specialists in the world, Ben decided it was time to explore some other opportunities and sold the company. It continues to thrives under it's new ownership.

Where we're based

In Cumbria's beautiful Lake District

We work from a converted farm building at Edenhall Estate near Penrith. Less than a minutes walk from the front door will give you views in the grid below... and in five minutes you could be: picnicking on the banks of the River Eden, in the pub, or sharing a glass of wine in the beautiful countryside around the estate.

Lake District

EXCEPTIONAL... doing justice to our responsibility of organizing an exceptional holiday - one that exceeds expectations - is what animates every part of our business. It's an exceptionally hard thing to achieve, and it requires an exceptionally dedicated and talented team.

- Ben Morison, Company Founder
