I had the most amazing experience in Kenya with African Travel. We traveled around the country for 8 days and had the PERFECT vacation. From the schedule we kept to do our game drives and the utterly relaxing tented camps we stayed in, it was absolutely the best vacation all around. We saw lions, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, zebra - sometimes from the balcony of our tent! Such a fabulous trip that really let us connect and recharge. I cannot wait to go back and explore more of Africa with African Travel!

From African Travel

African Travel, Inc. crafts personalized African safaris and adventures for today's travelers who crave an experience of a lifetime. African Travel, Inc. is a 38 year old purveyor of leisure travel programs to Africa, expert at offering customized safaris at all price points moderate to premium. We match your clients interests and requirements with the appropriate safari elements to create the ideal experience. The result is a tailor-made safari perfectly suited for your clients.

Create Memories with Friends and Family

For those looking to share camaraderie and fun with like-minded travelers, African Travel offers select small group departures to popular safari destinations in Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa. These safaris are offered on specific dates during popular travel periods with optimum wildlife and viewing in mind. Departing with a minimum of four and maximum of 12 guests, these programs operate much as a custom-designed tour where you’ll be greeted at the airport, enjoy top notch accommodations with expert local guides, and sometimes hosted by a dedicated guide who travels with the group for the duration of the tour. Enjoy the energy and dynamics of the group as you gather for sundowners and dinner and share each day’s adventures.

Specialty Safaris

There are many ways to experience Africa. While it is possible to experience Africa at almost every level of comfort and expenditure. If you have saved your African experience for the ultimate indulgence, then we have the safari experience for you. From the most comfortable beds dressed in fine linens and accompanied by thick plush towels, to stiff white tablecloths and fine wines accompanying gourmet menus served under twinkling starry skies, we can custom craft a luxurious African experience to take your breath away.

Custom Crafted, Private & Specialty Safaris

For the traveler who wishes to experience an exclusive private African journey, we offer an experience that reaches far beyond what is available in the world of ‘one tour fits all’ travel. Each of our sample itineraries was carefully designed to be the inspiration for a private, tailor-made safari. The elements can be used to modify an existing itinerary, as components to get you started with planning your custom experience, or are perfect taken as is.

Privately Operated & Tailor-Made for You

Safaris are designed to operate privately for your party of two or your exclusive group of family or friends. You designate your travel dates and we begin to work with the sample itinerary of your choosing. During city stays, you sightsee with your own car and driver.
