African Travel, Inc. has been in business for over 36 years.
Most of our safaris visit Eastern (Kenya, Tanzania & Seychelles) Africa and Southern (South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia, Namibia, Mauritius & Zimbabwe) Africa, as well as Egypt. We also operate gorilla trekking safaris to Rwanda and Uganda. Our newest destination is Dubai.
Our programs include Individual Departures, consisting of safari itineraries which have been designed with inherent flexibility. Nothing is written in stone. The focus is on well paced, low density tourism with an emphasis on a singular experience. While some of these departures offer multiple levels of luxury, you can be assured only the best hotels with proper ambiance and location are suggested.
Unique to African Travel, our definition of a Small Group Departure is one that operates with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 12 guests. We bring together like-minded travelers who enjoy meeting and sharing their experience. The group dynamic can provide an energy and exchange that, for many, is an enhancement that is missed when not in the company of other adventurers. Dates chosen for our Small Group Departures are for the most popular travel periods with wildlife and weather in mind.
Additionally we offer Off The Beaten Path programs which provide alternative travel adventures down ‘the road less traveled by’ to enrich and enhance your African travel experience. These special interest itineraries may require a certain degree of stamina but your extra effort will reap immeasurable rewards. These journeys have been designed so that they can stand alone or as a compliment to one of our Individual or Small Group Departures.
Exclusively Yours, AFRICA! is our collection of custom crafted, private and specialty safaris. For the traveler who wishes to experience an exclusive African journey, we offer an experience that reaches far beyond what is available in the world of ‘one tour fits all’ travel.
Yes, generally deviations can be made to any of our safari itineraries. In addition, we are pleased to suggest enhancements such as a spa treatment, a round of golf, a helicopter transfer, or a special wildlife experience.
