O ur website has been designed to whet your appetite and entice you to Southern Africa's huge choice of destinations. It will also give you ideas of where to visit or explore, but it is simply the beginning of your journey. When you need help, extra information or guidance that is when to call us at Africa Travel DMC and we will help you to arrive at your perfect tailor-made vacation. We understand that everyone has their own personal definition of luxury so tell us as much as you can about your clients and we'll put together suggestions for you. Unlike many destination management companies, we recommend what is right for you, not for us and above all we will be honest with you, especially if you are being too ambitious and want to pack too much into a break. Distances and transfers in this vast continent are often much greater or less frequent than in other areas and it is our job to alert you to this and to explain exactly how far or quickly you can travel whilst still enjoying it to the maximum. We have selected the countries, properties, and itineraries on our website as inspiration to start your journey, but this is by no means an exhaustive list of what we can provide. Whether you already have an itinerary in mind or you would like us to create something special for a client that has seen it all, we are happy to help. Whether your clients are looking for experiential travel, ecological adventures, or simply relaxation - we can create luxury, tailor-made ground arrangements to ensure they have the most authentic, rewarding experience.
Meet & Greet Services: Your clients will feel like VIPs from the moment they step off the plane. They will be greeted with sign boards displaying your agency's logo (not ours). We've thought of everything to make them feel special when they arrive and to let them know that they are in good hands.
Transfers: We know what clients want - private, comfortable transfers with knowledgeable representatives on board, a cooler with cold water, rest stops on request, and of course, photo opportunities to get the perfect shot of the African sunset.
Car Rental: Some of our clients in South Africa and Namibia choose self-drive holidays. We can provide rental car pickup from the airport or to the hotel the next day if desired. Looking for something special? We can arrange for classic cars, convertibles or Harley Davidsons.
Private Planes: We can arrange all commercial and private domestic flights within Africa. Private air charters provide speedy, luxurious transfers to the most remote destinations. For once-in-a-lifetime experiences, we can also organize aerial safaris by hot air balloon, micro-lite, or helicopter.
Advice & Reservations: We are the locals in South Africa that are always "in the know". We can share our knowledge with you to let your clients experience Southern Africa like a native. We know the trendiest places to be seen, which venues are overhyped and overpriced, and the hidden gems that tourists would never find themselves. We've even been known to secure a table from the chef at the "in" restaurant that is booked solid.
Luxury Rail: Two exquisite rail companies, Rovos Rail and the Blue Train, offer scenic itineraries accented with fine dining, unforgettable views, and stops at all of the highlights along the way. We'll give you ideas on how you can incorporate a rail journey into your itinerary.
Accommodation: We have selected the best boutique and luxury properties throughout Southern Africa which represent the diversity of this exotic continent. We offer owner-run accommodation that we have stayed at ourselves and developed a relationship with the proprietor, which gives us the best rates, exclusive extras, and special touches for demanding clients. We'll recommend the best room in the house and we'll make sure they make a fuss over you.
Excursions: We have access to the principal players in each country in Southern Africa and we can secure the most highly acclaimed guides, most sought-after experiences, and the most unique Southern African adventures. Clients won't find these tours in their guidebooks!
Bespoke Itineraries: We don't do tour busses, set departures, or group tours. We create itineraries to make clients feel like they are experiencing Southern Africa on their own terms, for the first time.
Exclusive Access: Our insider connections gives us access to private art collections, exclusive wine cellars, the most renowned wildlife experts, and the finest chefs. Our little black book can help you create unparalleled experiences for your clients' tastes.
