TTC FAMILY OF BRANDS

African Travel is a proud member of The Travel Corporation (TTC), a network of travel companies spanning 7 continents.  The TTC story began 101 years ago in Paternoster, South Africa, where Solomon Tollman opened a small hotel in the tiny fishing village then grew the company to a fourth generation, family-run collection of 40 award-winning brands. 

We have the largest infrastructure in the southern Africa which has earned us an enviable position of influence and negotiating power. This opens doors for you to some of the best experiences in Africa.

MAKE TRAVEL MATTER

We take pride in creating safari experiences that protect the places we love.  Through our #AfricanTravelCares and our partnership with the non-for-profit TreadRight Foundation, we are committed to help the people, wildlife and planet.  Each safari supports a child's education or wildlife conservation project.

 

OUR SAFARIS

We can’t wait to invite all to live the African Dream. But first we ask a few questions…What animals or events (the Great Migration!) are high on your wish lists? What’s your travel style? Is a luxury villa or traditional tented camps preferred?  Then we tailor trips to Safari, Your Way.

 

SAFARI, YOUR WAY

Like the stripes on a zebra, no two human fingerprints are the same. That’s why we offer a range of trip types and styles.  Each one is designed to have a positive impact on the people and communities we visit, and to help protect wild and marine life. Take your pick from:

  • Tailor-Made:  Our most popular travel style, 95% of guests request bespoke journeys to our 16 destinations in Africa.

  • Safari Vacation Packages:  For the ultimate in value, we’ve crafted 30 Brochure itineraries and online Safari Specials that include amazing values. These include Meaningful Moments for each trip from private guiding and special dinners to different ways to see the animals like balloon safaris or star beds.

  • Group Safaris:  10 travelers or more qualify for a group safari, so families, corporates or like-minded travelers can benefit from shared costs and special events. 

And we also cater based on travel style including heritage travel, family,and romance. To start, we also created a guide to choose the best African safari.
