African Travels, specialist in group tours to Africa
The founders of African Travels (born and raised in Africa) have worked on overland tours through the whole of Africa. With a background as tour leaders on African overland tours we give honest and independent travel advice. It matters to us that you are travelling with like-minded people. A small group tour is more popular with the 40 crowd and a camping tour with 22 passengers is generally more popular with travellers aged 20-30, keen for a party. We only work together with our personal network which we built over the last 30 years.
We offer a price beat guarantee. Have you seen the same tour somewhere else cheaper? Let us know at the time of booking your tour and we give you the same rate. Only applicable at the time of confirmation. Due to the ever-changing exchange rates we cannot adjust all our prices on a daily basis.
On request we can book you a single room. Otherwise, you will be sharing a room with somone else from the same sexe if you are a single traveler.
You can use ZAR and your Bank card should be accepted in most supermarkets, lodges and bars
We recommend you arrive the night before. We can book an extra night in the lodge from where the tour starts.
