Africa Travel Company

“Soft adventures, safaris and overland trips led by local guides exploring the real Africa, as well as the highlights. From three days in the Masai Mara to a 56 day trip from Nairobi to Cape Town, Africa Travel Co.’s team of overland safari trucks are able to offer guaranteed departure dates for many of their small group tours.”

Where they go

Trips range from family safaris in Botswana, around Victoria Falls or into the desert, to overland adventures from Nairobi to Cape Town to soft adventures with booked, and comfortable accommodation visiting some of Africa’s most breath taking sights. The shortest trips last for only three or fours days – jaunts into the Kruger or Masai Mara National Parks, the longest trips will have you on the road and camping out for 56 days.

What they specialise in

Being locally based and staffed with local crews, Africa Travel Co. is able to offer a greater insight into the cultures the safari trucks pass though as well as guests knowing they’re contributing to local economies. Three man guide crews depart on all trips, which range from between three and 56 days. Because of that and splitting the operations between three offices, one in Cape Town, one at Victoria Falls and one in Nairobi, Africa Travel Co is one of the very few overland safari companies that’s able to offer guaranteed departure dates on itineraries going both north and south.

Who they are for

Africa Travel Co. safaris and overland adventures are for anyone wanting to see the real Africa.

Singles travellers are welcomed into the groups and there’s no single supplemen. As far as upper and lower age limits each trip requires a slightly different level of fitness but you should be able to put up your own tent, help out with shared duties round the camp and scale the ladder on the Overland trucks. Some trips are for over 18’s only, but family trips welcome 6 – 17 year olds as well.
