As the longest established luxury safari operator with exclusive focus on the African continent, African Travel, Inc. crafts unique and magical journeys to suit different travel styles and interests. While their aim is always to match the right client with the right African destination, African Travel’s passion goes beyond safari.
“Travel is personal, and our goal is to make travel matter. We are deeply committed to sustainable travel, uplifting the local communities where we operate and visit, and supporting wildlife conservation efforts that allow animals to be appreciated and experienced without impacting their habitat,” said Banda, who was born in Cape Town. “We’re able to do this because we know Africa and we have the local knowledge to provide five-star experiences while treading lightly upon the continent, all with the goal of delivering the trip of a lifetime.”
The 30 extraordinary journeys featured will inspire travellers and excite travel advisors focused on providing their clients with unforgettable experiences. Book any 2020 African Travel, Inc. brochure itinerary of 5 night or more by December 31, 2019 and receive a savings of $400 per couple. This is not combinable with any other special offers.

Guests will explore Kenya’s oldest national park in search of endangered black and white rhino, spend time at the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy with a behind the scenes experience at the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, be immersed in the culture of the Samburu people, and discover the untamed beauty of the Maasai Mara and the pristine wilderness of the northern frontier. 9 days, from $12,895 pp.
An 11-day adventure in the “land of a thousand hills” is experienced in Discover Rwanda. Explore the open plains, woodlands and lakes and wildlife of Akagera National Park through game drives and boating trips before continuing safari to track wild chimpanzees in Nyungwe National Park and the mountain gorillas of Volcanoes National Park. Luxury accommodations at One & Only Nyungwe House and at One & Only Gorilla’s Nest provide a front row seat to Rwanda’s natural beauty, culture and wildlife. Learn what makes for the perfect cup of tea during a fascinating walk through a tea plantation, enjoy panoramic views of the rainforest from a scenic helicopter flight, and a tree planted in each guest’s name leaves a legacy in Rwanda. 11 days, from $22,595 pp.
As an active partner and supporter of the not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation’s sustainability work and projects, African Travel is dedicated to protecting wildlife, reducing the environmental impact on the planet, and ensuring the communities visited remain vibrant for future generations. The 2020 brochure reflects the “people” pillar of this commitment, encouraging the cultures, traditions and arts of the communities they visit continue to thrive.
African Travel does this through their sponsorship of micro-enterprises, and community-based tourism initiatives that build positive futures for community members and their families—especially children. For each guest who books an itinerary in East Africa, a contribution is made towards a child’s education in Africa. South Africa booked itineraries support a Cape Town women’s sewing cooperative through African Travel, Inc.’s partnership with Sexy Socks. The colorful, eco-friendly bamboo socks will be donated to children in need so they can wear them to school. Guests will also receive a pair.
Reducing environmental impact through travel is also essential to African Travel, Inc. They are committed and dedicated to eliminating all avoidable single-use plastics in their offices and out on the road by 2022. The company introduced their e-docs program in 2018, giving guests the option to receive travel documents digitally and have a tree planted in their name.
