We absolutely loved our Africa Safari Tour.  The accommodation throughout was excellent and the local people so welcoming and helpful.  While the camps in Botswana were wonderful, the highlight was seeing so many wild animals.  In particular, getting up close to Lions lying on the road was an incredible experience. I highly recommend The African Travel Specialists.


The African Travel Specialists delivered a tailored travel experience.  We got to see and do everything we wanted to and so much more!  From climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, to helicopter flights over Victoria Falls, rafting the Zambezi River to the game parks of Tanzania and Kenya. As well as traveling through the amazing landscapes of Namibia and South Africa.  The people we were in contact throughout were knowledgeable, friendly and professional. A well organised itinerary that showcased the knowledge bank and expertise of The African Travel Specialists.
