Our Story & Philosophy

Our Story

In the 1990s, African holidays were the exclusive realm of glossy travel magazines and full-colour brochures. We helped change that. When the world went online, Africa Point did, too. In 1998, we became one of the first web-based travel agencies and tour operators to offer personalised African safaris, beach vacations, and other holidays to the African continent.

 

Headquartered not in London or New York, our roots are in Nairobi. We offer something different: the talent and knowledge of truly local experts. Our travel consultants were born here. We grew up here. We've travelled the continent. And we love Africa.

 

We are proud to have parlayed our humble beginnings into a successful travel agency and tour operator. Today, our team is comprised of 10 experts with more than 50 years of combined experience in African holiday planning. We've expanded our network throughout the continent, and now have partner offices in Cape Town (South Africa), Arusha and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Cairo (Egypt), Kampala (Uganda), Victoria (Seychelles), Harare (Zimbabwe) as well as Accra (Ghana). We are proud members of the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).

 

Africa Point has changed over the years. Our company has grown. We welcome more and more tourists to Africa every year. But one thing remains the same: At Africa Point, our goal has been and will always be you. Your satisfaction. Your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your joy.

 

 

Our Philosophy

Your Kind of Magic

Your Kind of Magic

Africa is like no other place on Earth. It's a traveller's ideal destination of wildlife encounters, cultural experiences, thrilling adventures and spectacular scenery. But at Africa Point, we know that dream holidays are not one-size-fits-all. You are as unique as our continent, so we take great pride in building your custom-fit – a vacation that combines the magic of Africa with your needs and preferences.

 

But that's not all. We also operate our own safari vehicles and employ experienced, hospitable and bilingual tour guides. When you book with Africa Point, our promises don't end with your reservation. We'll meet you here, on the ground in Africa – where we can be sure, in person, that you have the holiday you always imagined. So say kwaheri (Swahili for goodbye) to guesswork and hello to flawless planning and dreams come true.

 

The Wisdom of Experience

The Wisdom of Experience

It is said that experience + knowledge = wisdom. In 1998, Africa Point became one of the first African travel agencies and tour operators to jump on the information superhighway. We've enjoyed the ride ever since, welcoming thousands of travellers to African soil. For us, holiday planning is about more than just the details – we focus on all those small nuances that make big differences. And we get to know you, so we can create your perfectly planned, unforgettable and tailor-made holiday.

 
Local Knowledge from a Traveller's Heart

Local Knowledge from a Traveller's Heart

When you travel the world, you learn quickly that the best advice comes from locals – experts who have seen, touched and tasted everything a destination has to offer. And that's what we promise: local expertise. At Africa Point, our recommendations are based on personal, first-hand experience. We recommend only the best – those hotels, tours and restaurants we'd visit again.

 

We've worked hard to create an up-to-date, online Africa travel guide, so you can take an armchair voyage to discover your ideal destinations. But we also know there's no substitute for direct, local and expert advice. So give us a call, open a chat, or email us – your personal travel consultant is here, in Africa, with the latest information and recommendations tailored to you.
