About Us

We are passionate about travel and tourism, specifically about Africa. Our team has years of experience in the travel industry and we want others to get out and enjoy Africa as much as we do.  We are not a team who have only read or heard about the places we are selling, we have experienced them first-hand, which means that we really know what we are offering you. We strive to bring you the best deals as they happen in one place with an easy- to- use and easy- to- search website. Our deals are updated as they happen with all the information you require to make a booking that suits your preference and pocket. We do not outsource our booking team and prefer to keep our service personal with a dedicated team of travel professionals to guide you along your booking journey. We strive to be:

  • Friendly and helpful
  • Quick and efficient
  • Experts at what we do/ destination specialists

Our destinations and specials are hand- picked offering the best available price, how much time you have to book as well as what is included and excluded in the price.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact us and our friendly team will get back to you as soon as possible.
