Spotting Madagascar’s lemurs, exploring historic Ethiopia, getting up close to the Great Migration, diving Mozambique’s Twelve Mile Reef or simply lazing on a tropical island beach – if you dream it, Rainbow Tours are the travel experts who can put all the arrangements in place.

We can take you iconic sites or hidden corners, offering real adventure, be it the finest lodge in a legendary setting or an exhilarating fly-camp deep in the bush. We favour distinctive, owner-run Acommodation, where you will find genuine hospitality, and our small group tours and mobiles use the best guides and wildlife experts.

Rainbow Tours have been providing the very best in tailor-made holidays to Africa and the Indian Ocean since 1997 and we are the UK’s number one specialist to Madagascar. Our expertise is consistently recognised with four ‘Best Tour Operator’ awards in the last seven years. We regularly visit all our destinations ensuring genuine, current knowledge and expertise throughout our office.

We design trips for couples and solo travellers, for honeymoons and special occasions or anniversaries, for families with children of all ages and small groups – anyone wanting a genuine taste of Africa.
