Our current awards

During the pandemic, we have been hailed by Which? as a company that looks after your interests, even in difficult times. We are among a handful of tour operators given the ‘green light’ by the consumer champion on its Holiday Checker tool, a designation exclusively reserved for companies with which ‘your money is safe, refunds are processed quickly and in full, and you have freedom to change your booking for almost any reason – often close to your departure date.

We are also delighted to have won World's Leading Luxury Safari Company 2020 and Oceania’s Leading Tour Operator 2020 in the World Travel Awards, and we were winners for the Sophisticate category in OutThere magazine’s Experientialist Awards.

In 2018 we were also voted Africa’s Leading Luxury Tour Operator at the World Travel Awards for the ninth consecutive year. The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence in the tourism industry. Today, these awards are recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which hospitality companies aspire.

It’s the third time we’ve received this accolade, voted for by the readers ofThe Times, The Sunday Times and The Sunday Times Travel Magazine.
