We are the preferred supplier to most of the top lodges in Africa. Most lodges do not accept direct bookings, requiring bookings to be made through an agent.  It takes a long time and a lot of experience to become a preferred supplier and we are very proud to have been awarded this accolade.
Over the years we have worked with almost every supplier in Africa allowing us to discover which is the best safari in Africa as well as developing very strong relationships. We visit all the properties regularly to keep up to date with our safari knowledge and due to our many years in the industry we are able to offer you an overall cheaper price than dealing direct with a supplier.

There is no doubt that - along with Africa Odyssey staff - past clients are held in high regard locally for all they have and continue to bring to East Africa. The guests arrive in East Africa well prepared for the journey and as such are able to fully enjoy these wildernesses in the way that best suits them.

"Africa Odyssey are one of Nomad Tanzania's most trusted tour operator partners and have been since we both started up in the mid 90’s. Still small, immensely knowledgeable and fanatic about quality, they keep us on our toes and supply us with an eclectic mix of well informed & interesting clients. In a world where gratuitous luxury can too often obscure the real experience, Marc and his team remain champions of all that the true safari should represent - and we at Nomad love them for it!"
