Everything about African Travel says “We KNOW Africa,” from the company president who was born and raised in Zambia (central southern Africa) to the expert safari consultants to African Travel’s ground partners in Africa. Because African Travel has over 35 years experience in Africa, they are the experts at offering authentic African experiences which match travelers to their perfect safari.


Safari consultants at African Travel don’t just book tours, as is common with most other safari travel companies, they spend the time to discover exactly what you are looking for and then use their 35 years of accumulated knowledge to craft a tailor-made safari perfect for you. It doesn’t stop there, though—once you have booked your perfect vacation, African Travel ensures that the safari is executed flawlessly from the moment you are met at the airport until you re-board the plane, happy and satisfied, to head home or on to your next great adventure.


Partnered with sister company Thompsons Safaris, African Travel is able to offer a wide range of destinations and a wide choice of accommodations and experience options, from intimate five star private reserves with glorious accommodation, private plunge pools and cordon bleu dining, right through to the more rustic, value-for-money tented or self drive adventures, plus everything in- between. No matter which tier of experience you choose, day breaks and closes with the expectant thrill of a game drive. African Travel also uses Wilderness Safaris for their well positioned bush camps and their extensive work in conservation and the welfare of the local people. With the combined strength of Travel Corporation companies African Travel and Thompsons Safaris, and their close association with Wilderness, you know that you will receive seamless and exemplary service and excellent value for your money,

As with all Travel Corporation companies, African Travel puts the customer at the heart of everything they do, ensuring first quality service and experiences for travelers and agents alike.



President Jim Holden joined African Travel in July of 2010 and brings with him a lifetime of experience. Holden strongly believes that, “the most superb travel experience in Africa is ail about staying out of harm’s way while at the same time having the full-on African experience. This is what travelers experience with African Travel. When booking a safari to Africa it’s important to work with a tour operator who really knows Africa and who can talk about all the different experiences to be had there. Through its association with Thompsons Safaris and Wilderness Safaris, African Travel has a unique perspective of Africa and is able to give traveler to Africa the best possible custom-designed tour.”
