Trust, Confidence and Security when you travel with Albatros Travel Africa
We offer scheduled and tailor-made tours to countries in southern and eastern Africa. What this means is that you can either purchase one of our ready-made tour packages that commences on a given date or you can contact us if you want to leave on a different date or would prefer to book the trip as a private tour.
You might, for example, have a rough idea that you would like take your family to visit Cape Town and the Garden Route, go on a Safari in Namibia and finish off exploring Kruger in your own vehicle. Along the way you want to go whale watching and hot air ballooning, but you’re not sure where.
We will then use our travel expertise and extensive regional networks to put together a flexible itinerary for you, possibly making suggestions for other sights or features we think you might also enjoy. We’ve been doing this for 26 years and we love the creative challenge – so you can rest assured that we’ll do our best to make your travel dreams come true. You can change elements of it as you wish until you’re happy with the result.
It’s really that simple!
In addition we offer:
- A guarantee that we will reply to any enquiries within 24 hours
- A meet & greet service at all major airports
- A Welcome Pack containing all the information you’ll need for your holiday
- Great rates at safari lodges and hotels
- Four regional offices with dedicated full time staff and local know-how
- A 24 hour emergency telephone contact while on tour to give you peace of mind
- Multi-lingual registered and accredited tour leaders and guides

About Albatros Travel – the travel company that’s a little different
Albatros Travel Africa is part of Albatros Travel A/S, a Danish travel company founded in 1986 by the biologist and writer Søren Rasmussen. Initially we only offered tours to Africa but over the years this has expanded to include worldwide destinations, with a particular emphasis on ecotourism in Greenland and Africa. We also offer cruises and arrange adventure marathon holidays in challenging environments, such as along the top of the Great Wall of China and on the Greenland Ice Cap.
Furthermore we regularly set sail for the remote Arctic regions aboard our ice-strengthened small cruise ship, Corinthian II, and show people some of the wildest and most untouched areas on Earth. Sometimes we also sail our ships to Africa - below you can see a video of one of our Zanzibar cruises.
From our beginnings in a small Copenhagen office we now have travel centres spanning the world. Aside from our head office in Copenhagen, there are others in four African countries, as well as Greenland and, now, China. Despite our expansion, we retain close links with our tour leaders, guides and partners, meaning we are still able to offer you the same high level of quality service.
We are a fully accredited member of the key African tour operator associations
