Get Ready to Travel Again

2020 has been a challenging year for all, but we hope that you have all been keeping safe and healthy. It seems however, that the good news has started to roll in. From vaccines to easing of lockdowns, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel. With numerous African countries now open for tourism, it is a great time to escape and explore or take advantage of our flexible booking terms to secure your well deserved getaway for 2021 or 2022.

East Africa

From the rolling plains of the Serengeti, to the jungles of Rwanda, many East African countries including our favourites are open and have been welcoming visitors with open arms. Whether you want to go gorilla trekking or soar above the grassy plains in a hot air balloon, all is now possible.

A Covid-19 Trip Report, Tanzania

Africa expert Sam headed to Tanzania during October to see first-hand what travel is like during the Covid era. He explored how the lodges and camps are ensuring the safety of their guests and staff, how you are kept safe whilst travelling internationally and how the game viewing experience changed. Make sure you read his report and check out his video highlights for a full account of his trip.

Southern Africa

Southern Africa has opened to tourists slower than East Africa, but the result now is the same. Most of the countries are now allowing international tourists to enter and enjoy their holidays without quarantine. Whether you are exploring the watery maze of the Okavango Delta or marvelling at the stunning dunes of Sossusvlei, all of your travelling dreams can once again be fulfilled.

Secure Flexible Bookings

We understand that now more than ever, having flexible booking terms are vitally important with the uncertainty in the world. Therefore, we have partnered with numerous lodges across the continent to ensure you the best possible terms and conditions for new bookings.

We can offer a full refund up to 60 days before travel, so you could book now for a trip in September next year and not have to make a decision until July.
