Absolute Africa

With over 35 years experience solely in Africa, we have a depth of knowledge and expertise that brings you a great way to get the most out of your African Adventure, with the back up of our dedicated team. Our trips are affordable overland safari's ranging from 4 to 73 days, giving you the choice of what you want to see across East and Southern Africa. We also offer short beach breaks, safari breaks and have our own Kilimanjaro team - arranging treks to the Roof of Africa! 

Starting out in 1979, “Taxi Dave” as he is known, drove a London black taxi from London through the Sahara to Kenya. From there we established our fleet of purpose built overland trucks to travel the famous overland routes of East and Southern Africa, aswell as offices both in London and Africa and our own Tanzanian Kilimanjaro trekking team.

On the overland tours and safaris we provide fully equipped expedition vehicles and the expertise of trained crew. The overland tours are group participation in style to get you to the heart of a place - shopping in local markets, camping under the African night sky, preparing dinner, giving you opportunities to actively experience the world around you and interact with the wonderful African continent.

Adventure travel in Africa allows you to experience a diversity of cultures, the extraordinary wildlife of the continent, stunning scenery and adrenaline pumping activities. Head to the roof of Africa with our locally based Kilimanjaro team overseen by Samson Lauwo, spot the big five in Africa’s world famous gameparks, trek the endangered mountain gorillas, visit traditional villages, bungee, skydive and white water raft, and enjoy getting out in the wilderness -we can arrange a trip for you with the backup and expertise of our experienced team at the most affordable price.
