Why we're different
Africa Travel DMC is a full service destination management company based in Cape Town offering the most exclusive, elegant, and exotic travel arrangements to Africa. We have responded to the travel trade's need for a knowledgeable ground handler with experience servicing high-profile clients with discerning tastes who expect an exceptional level of service. We are creating new standards of excellence through our commitment to making the clients' interaction with us highly personalized yet always professional.
Every arrangement we make is totally hand crafted to the needs of each individual we service. We are up to date on the latest trends in Africa and we pride ourselves on always making the best recommendations to suit each client's definition of "luxury". We do not offer group tours or set departures, we listen to your requirements and draw upon our 25 years of knowledge to suggest the right country, game reserve, and accommodation to make your travel arrangements perfect.
It's the little things that make a big difference.
We love wildlife, but we hate the herd mentality. In a competitive industry with overwhelming choice, it is important to stand out from the crowd. We prefer to lead the pack by offering the most exclusive experiences to make your clients' holiday to Africa unforgettable.
We are a highly-specialized bespoke ground handler with consultants who are passionate about making each holiday personalized to perfection. Our office is based in Cape Town and is staffed by English speaking, native South Africans. We are small, boutique company with personal connections to the owners of the properties we feature and our modest size allows us to maintain the same point of contact with agents each time they call.
We pride ourselves on being agent-friendly, offering thorough advice, and doing all we can to meet the needs of your clients. We offer a full range of tailor-made services to make each African adventure satisfyingly unique.
We know that you have a lot of choice in ground handlers in Africa, and that is why we don't follow the pack - we set entirely new standards of quality and service. We understand what clients want and agents need. We pride ourselves on how delightfully different we are.
- We've got the best rates - We work closely with owner-run properties to offer you the lowest rates, the most exclusive access, and value added extras to make your guests feel special. You can be assured that you are getting the best price by cutting out the middle man and booking directly with us in Africa.
- We help you sell - We provide key selling points, anecdotes, & narratives to help you make a personal connection with the client to close the sale. We can provide destination and product training customized for your sales team, as well as marketing and sales tips and advice through our newsletters and linkedIn forums.
- We've been there - We are well-travelled throughout Africa and only sell the properties where we have stayed. We will share our first hand experiences with you to give you the correct information quickly.
- We are your representation in Africa - We use white label branding to represent your agency to your clients, not ours. We personally greet your clients in Cape Town to give them a friendly face and a local contact that they can rely on. Best of all, you can rely on us to pick up the pieces in the unlikely event of an emergency.
- We go the extra mile - Even your most precious VIP clients are in good hands with us.
- Ease of payment - We can offer agents nett or gross rates (commission) according to your preference. Payment can be made by credit card or to save the transaction fee, we can also offer wire transfers. Our quotations include everything so that there are no hidden extras or surprises for your clients in resort.
- Insider's access - With an incredible team based in Cape Town with some of the best connections in the industry, we offer bespoke experiences with local flair. We know what's hot and what's not - whether it is the hottest new restaurant in town, the best bar with a view sundowners, or the newest luxury accommodation that everyone is talking about.
The circle is a powerful symbol that is prevalent in the nature and artwork of Southern Africa. Circles are used to represent journeys - travels that take you to new parts of the world to discover and explore - you may return home, full circle, but you are never quite the same. The three circles represent the landscapes, wildlife and culture of Southern Africa for an all-encompassing and enriching experience.
Africa Travel DMC provides a 360 degree experience in Southern Africa with a twist - we offer unique interactions in unusual destinations to allow you to enjoy the real Southern Africa, away from the crowds, on your own terms and in your own time. As insiders, we can give you access to the inner circle of Africa for the most exclusively unforgettable adventures.
The inner circle is bold and stands out like us. We thrive on being different, rare, and audacious.
Enjoy a refreshingly new look at an inspiring continent through the eyes of the experts.
