WE ARE FROM AFRICA & WE WANT TO SHARE AFRICA WITH YOU
There is an art to what we do. Designing a trip to Africa and choosing where and when to go, and how to get around and ensure you get the right experience is not an easy feat. We take care of all that stress which ultimately allows you to let go and enjoy the incredible journey we have planned for you.
There is nothing that make us happier than sharing our beloved Africa with our clients. We grew up in Africa and thrive on being able to share our experiences by designing our clients unforgettable immersive African experiences.
We do this by ensuring we listen to what your interests and aspirations are, and we then use our extensive experience to create and design a life changing experience.
Our experience comes from not only growing up in Africa and having worked in the tourism industry for many years, but from visiting the products we use and getting first hand experiences of what our partners offer. This enables us to ensure we are pairing the right places and establishments to the needs of our clients. This I believe, makes all the difference.
We focus on remote and pristine wilderness areas that are easily accessible for our clients. Our wish is for you to reconnect whilst being in a remote pristine wilderness area surrounded by nature, wildlife and billions of stars. We handpick our accomodations based on their high level of service they provide our clients and for the proficiency of their guides, which have to be of the highest standards.

The Rippon Family - Melbourne, AustraliaThank you Rowan and team for organising our incredible trip to Africa. It was even more amazing than we’d hoped. The people, places and scenery really do have to be seen to be believed. Your knowledge of the local areas in Zimbabwe and Botswana helped to create a unique and tailored family experience!! And yes…that lion was about 2m away from our vehicle!!! 😬
Margie and Alan - London UK
Sensational Africa have done us proud. They recommended and then organised everything from our flights to baggage storage at Maun; an amazing safari experience deep in the Kalahari in Botswana at a Ker and Downey camp (Dinaka). Whilst there it rained and we witnessed the desert flora and fauna coming to life. From flowers that appear for just a few days a year, to migrating birds on a stopover, bullfrogs feasting on nuptial termites, and frolicking baby wildebeest and impala. Our trip was a delight, made even more special by the exceptional hospitality, comfort and safari guiding provided by Dinaka Camp. We thank Sensational Africa for their outstanding organisation taking into account our personal preferences and wishes. Margie and Alan.
