We are a Jack of all travel trades, but over the years, AiAfrica Travel has specialised in particular interests and travel styles.
Our continent is blessed with world class courses in astonishing settings. The caddies are highly experienced and add great value to your game. South Africa is a renowned golfers' paradise with Gary Player's three courses at Fancourt, two courses at Sun City and Leopard Creek near the Kruger National Park at the top of many wish lists, followed closely by Durban Country Club, Pearl Valley, and St Francis Links. Further afield, Leopard Rock in Zimbabwe, the Ile Aux Cerfs and Heritage Clubs in Mauritius, Lemuria in Seychelles and Sea Cliff on the spice Island of Zanzibar are worth including in your travels. Whether you specifically wish to tour Africa to play golf, or are keen to just get a round in, leave the planning, tee times, transfers and equipment hire to us.
South Africa has a vibrant food culture with much socialising happening around a braai (barbeque) or a potjie (a big cast iron cooking pot). The country has also produced exquisite chefs, some awarded a Michelin star while abroad. If cuisine is your interest, we will sculpt your itinerary around extraordinary dining experiences, adding excursions such as wine tasting, truffle hunting, foraging, cooking demonstrations and food tours. For the safari part of your journey, we know the game lodges where your tastebuds are more than taken care of. Cape Town is the gastronomic capital of South Africa, and most of the top restaurants are situated here and in the Cape Winelands.
The continent's fascinating human heritage is as much part of an African experience as its natural beauty. With 11 official languages in South Africa and over 120 tribes in Tanzania alone, there are as many different cultural ceremonies, traditions, and war stories. We specialise in showcasing the people of Africa and their joint history in an authentic and non-intrusive way. We take you to the local people where they reside and where you can respectfully engage with them. Through these interactions, you will learn why Africa is the way it is today. Besides meeting local communities and tribes, we encourage to visit the places of historic significance like the Cradle of Human Kind, Rwanda's genocide museum, Constitution Hill in South Africa, the KwaZulu-Natal Battlefields, Stone Town and the Lalibela Rock Churches.
Like every other traveller, a person who is gay deserves the freedom to explore the world. When planning a trip to Africa, this may not seem so easy as in some countries being gay is still against the law or is a taboo. With our knowledge of the different regions and their laws and customs, we specialise in offering inclusive and safe journeys for gay and lesbian travellers. Since 2006, the South African constitution guarantees equal rights to all people, regardless of their sexual orientation, and has become a top holiday destinations for gay and lesbian people, where everyone is treated with the courtesy and respect they deserve. Although Kenya has not updated its laws regarding same-sex relationships, it is safe to travel here too. If you are a same-sex couple and avoid public displays of affection, you will not have any problems enjoying an East African safari. Other countries recommended for travel are Rwanda and Mauritius.
For adrenaline junkies and active travellers, Africa has more to offer than fits in a regular 2-week holiday. Think white water rafting and bungee jumping in Victoria Falls, paragliding in Rwanda, Kite surfing in Mozambique, mountain biking across Table Mountain, abseiling giant cliffs in the Tsitsikamma Forest, quad biking in the Namib Desert, hot air balloon safaris over the Maasai Mara, conservation safaris in Kwandwe Game Reserve, tiger fishing in Zambia, walking among dangerous game in Mana Pools and game viewing on horseback in Kenya.
