African Travel

Personalized safaris and adventures for travelers who crave an experience of a lifetime


Whether exploring the catacombs beneath Alexandria in Egypt, tracking mountain gorillas in Parc National des Volcans in Rwanda, paddling along the Zambezi River past a lumbering bull elephant, learning desert survival skills from a bushman in the Kalahari in Botswana or sipping champagne as you watch the sun descend into the Atlantic from your private balcony, African Travel knows Africa.

Picture yourself traveling in the path of the famed explorer Livingstone, boating down the Zambezi River, looking out for hippos and crocodiles, listening for the thunderous roar of the great Victoria Falls just beyond. Imagine looking out on the Great Migration as you float in a hot air balloon above the Serengeti Plains. Perhaps you envision yourself as an artful National Geographic photographer, zooming in on the matriarch elephant playing joyfully in the returning waters of the Okavango Delta. Or maybe you’ve always wanted to see the actual “snows of Kilimanjaro” or the endangered “gorillas in the mist.”

Whatever your dreams of Africa, you can use our kaleidoscope of inspirational itineraries to mix and match and create the perfect safari just for you. Consider the style and pace you wish to travel – luxuriously or quite comfortably, relaxed or adventurous, to well-traveled or remote destinations; and your special interests, be they wildlife, scenic landscapes, history, culture or volunteering.

To get you started, we’ve grouped our itineraries into categories – Popular Journeys, Extraordinary Experiences, and Added+Adventures. Review your favorites with your African Travel safari specialist who will help you create an unforgettable, even life-changing African journey, just for you. For those interested in the camaraderie of traveling in a group, we offer a selected number of Small Group Journeys to popular safari destinations.
