20+ years traveling through Africa we have had some incredible adventures. Let us share our favorite hidden gems, great values, the best rooms, the must do activities – the places where we have had the most fun! Call today to learn about the Africa we know and love!
This is your trip to Africa! We will advise where to spend, and where to save, maximizing your travel dollar. We guarantee to make recommendations based on your needs as we have no vested interests in Africa.
We try to avoid impersonal hotels and crowds. In addition benefit from discounted rates, free nights, and room upgrades exclusive to Ultimate Africa clients.
We do not use minibuses to cut costs. Our trips include expert English speaking local guides, unlimited drinks – whether bottled water, tea, wine, soft drinks or something stronger, all meals, park fees, accommodations, laundry, and road / air transfers. There are no hidden fees. Trips also include the helpful support of our expert travel planners before, during (24/7 in country support), and after you travel.
(many foreign companies cannot book international flights or purchase travel insurance for Americans / Canadians). Based in Seattle, USA we are easy to reach. No need for middle of the night calls to Africa. Email us during the day and we will often respond within a matter of minutes. Pay by check or credit card avoiding international wire transfer paperwork, uncertain bank charges and foreign credit card fees of 3% to 10% in addition to fees charged by your bank!
