Why book with us
We want to be really clear about this. We offer amazing value. Tailor-made does not mean expensive, it simply means attention to every detail of your trip arranged by a true expert. Our travel consultants have extensively travelled (or even lived) in Africa and know these destinations inside out – they work to get your holiday right, saving you time and taking all the organisational headaches away.
What you get for free – that you wouldn't get if you booked direct or with our competitors:
Extensive Africa expertise - from staying at hotels, exploring areas, living in the countries. We love Africa and we try to get ourselves there as often as possible. Tap into our amazing knowledge to create a superb holiday. We are the top Africa specialist in the UK.
Your own travel specialist to email or phone and ask for a specific independent opinion about a lodge, hotel, area, attraction, site or your holiday as a whole. We are not tied to any hotel or lodge or airline.
Someone else’s time to research every option for your holiday and tweak it as many times as you like. We do all the leg work.
Every aspect of your holiday covered – hotels, transfers, flights, guides, activities. We can arrange it all.
Reduced rates passed on from our overseas partners. As the top Africa specialist we have exclusive deals with a number of lodges and hotels and are often the first to hear of any special offers.
Guaranteed quality of guides, vehicles and transfers. We know how it works on the ground. We know the guides that speak the best English, the vehicles that have air-con and a purring engine and the transfers that will get you where you need to be at the right time without crazy driving.

Self-drive you can rely on. If you choose a self-drive holiday, we organise everything for you. We supply driving directions, sat nav (for an additional cost), 24 hour emergency helplines, access to emergency vehicles and, in some areas, local SIM cards to put in to your phone.
A lovely personalised itinerary. We love holidays and we like to get excited about them for months before we go. We find a beautiful looking itinerary sat on our coffee table helps the anticipation.
Your own travel pack with everything you need including itinerary, country information, phone numbers, luggage labels will be sent to you a week before you go.
100% financial protection from ATOL & ABTOT. If, in the extremely unlikely event, anything happens to Imagine Africa, all the money you have paid to us is protected. If you are overseas, you will be protected and repatriated.
A 24 hour emergency contact just in case anything goes wrong. For example, frustratingly sometimes flights can be delayed. You will always be able to contact us or one of our representatives and we will re-arrange everything so it has as little impact on your holiday as possible.
