If you’ve dreamed of enjoying the wonders of Africa, but don’t have the confidence or courage to undertake the adventure on your own, then The African Touch is for you.
The African Touch caters for all ages, including the mature traveler, and gives travellers the opportunity to enjoy Africa without having to stay in luxury lodges. Until now only young travellers who are prepared to ‘rough it’ have been able to fully experience the excitement, magic and beauty of this stunning country. The African Touch enables you to experience the real Africa in a fun, safe and memorable way.
Tours include; 14 and 28 day East African safaris from Uganda to Kenya to the beautiful Tanzania coast, and overland camping safaris through Southern Africa, from the Victoria Falls to the spectacular beauty of the Namib Desert.
While The African Touch covers many major attractions, it also takes you off the beaten track so you can mingle with local people where travelers are never seen, a highlight being a visit to Karoma’s Mama’s village.
Karoma and Tasha guide you through every step of your holiday – they will arrange your bookings, tell you what to take and wear, advise you on what you have to do before you leave New Zealand and answer all your questions.
They are happy to meet with you any time to discuss travel plans. The African Touch are also available for contract work, private hire and can design special overland African tour itineraries for groups and clubs.
