For over 17 years Africa Travel Co has operated overland adventures throughout southern and eastern Africa. We operate a fleet of specially built safari vehicles, in ten eastern and southern African countries, and each year sees us introduce new and innovative itineraries. We believe our success and growth has been down to the fact that 90% of the people who work for us as road crew and office and workshop staff are African. These are the people of Africa showing you their Africa. Our management team have had years of experience as road crew, and have enjoyed the excitement of life on the road and exploring this magnificent continent.

Our trips are renowned for their delicious meals, and there is nothing better than sitting around a campfire after a day of travelling to a scrumptious dinner that has been prepared by one of our local Safari Cooks. Our crew are there to share their passion for Africa with you, they very much take part in what happens on a daily basis on your tour, and will show you the time of your life when travelling with us! With three operational bases throughout southern and eastern Africa, we are the only overland company to offer such a comprehensive support system within Africa.

Over the years we have closely developed our routes we travel on through Africa. Our itineraries are very well set out and cover all the major highlights and much more. Our trips range between 3 days to 56 days, which means Africa Travel Co can offer something that will suit the need of every adventure traveller!

We believe in showing our clients a real and authentic experience in Africa that also benefits the environment and local people in the counties we travel through. We do this by supporting local community projects and respecting the environment by only leaving our foot prints!

 

The Vehicles

Our fleet of almost 50 customised safari vehicles are owned and operated by Africa Travel Co. Most of our overland trucks are Mercedes Benz but we also operate MAN's and Ford Cargo's as well. These vehicles have been designed to give, you the passenger the best in comfort and security. They are fully self-sufficient with cooking and camping equipment, long range fuel tanks, 3-400 litre water tanks, exterior and interior lighting, lockers, windows and stereos.

 

The Crew

On most of our trips we have three crew members; the trip leader, driver and safari cook. All our crew have a lot of love and knowledge of the countries they are travelling through and are keen to share their passion for Africa, which is one of the most important requirements of your trip. We feel that their enthusiasm as well as their experience will guarantee that you have an unforgettable trip.

 

Food

The safari cook generally does the cooking on a trip, although we do ask that you participate in the preparation of meals on a rota basis. Meals and menus will vary depending on what produce is available locally but you will be ensured of three healthy square meals a day when on the road. We purchase fresh food from markets and roadside stalls along the way, which is supported by a bulk buy of goods bought prior to departure. In the towns and cities there is the optional alternative of sampling the local restaurants.

 

Accommodation

On our camping trips we provide spacious 2-person tents with sewn in ground sheets and a separate fly sheet. Most nights you will stay in organised campsites which usually have hot water showers and extra facilities such as a bar or swimming pool. Increasingly many of these have simple roomed accommodation, so on occasion you have the choice at extra cost to upgrade to a bed if you want to. Occasionally, when we are unable to drive any further or when there is no local campsite available, we may have to bush camp. Our vehicles are completely self-sufficient for this and camping out in the middle of the African bush can be a memorable experience.

On WLA accommodated trips, accommodation is in 2-3 star lodges, hotels, chalets, set tents and mobile tented camps. Some establishments are quite basic, where others offer a higher level of comfort. Ablution facilities are mostly shared, with a few hotels or lodges offering en-suite facilities.
