:: About Us
Okavango Tours & Safaris, through continued individual
travel and research, is a specialist in the great adventure
of an African safari.
The company was founded twenty years ago and since then
we have concentrated on offering high quality, individually-tailored
holidays to our clients. Initially we only operated in Botswana
– hence the name – with an occasional trip to
see Victoria Falls. We realised that the way forward was to
grow slowly and steadily in order to keep up the high standards
of knowledge and service which are so important to our philosophy.
We gradually expanded to cover all of southern Africa
Africa. As more than 60% of our business is repeat or
referral, we needed to keep ahead of our returning clients
so moved north to Tanzania,
We even looked east to Madagascar
and explored the Indian
Ocean islands for those who like some indulgence on a
beach after a safari. Most recently Rwanda has been included.
We are established as one of the leading small but very
experienced operators for Africa – as is demonstrated
by winning the Association of Independent
Tour Operators’ award of Travel Company of the Year
for 2005 and 2007. This award is based purely on votes sent
in by very satisfied clients.
Our preference is to use small privately-owned lodges and
camps where we can be sure that our clients will be treated
to the very best hospitality, service and quality guiding
with safety in the bush of paramount importance. Because we
regularly visit Africa to check that standards are being maintained
(and also to seek out what is new), we build a very strong
relationship with the owners which means that we can be confident
that our clients will be in good hands and that there is a
focus on caring for the environment and for the local people.
The Company has complied with the financial bonding requirements
of the Civil Aviation Authority (ATOL
licence number 2945).
