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 five years ago and since then we have concentrated on offering high quality, bespoke safari planning and individually-tailored holidays. 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 - Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, Malawi and South 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, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. We even looked east to Madagascar and explored the Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius, Seychelles and Reunion for those who like some indulgence on a beach after a safari. Most recently safaris in Mozambique have been included.

 

We are established as one of the leading small but very experienced operators specialising in Africa - as is demonstrated by winning the Association of Independent Tour Operators award of Travel Company of the Year, an award based purely on votes sent in by our 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 also 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).
