All About Detour Africa
Detour Africa, started more than 15 years ago, long before the boom or internet travel sites. Back then travellers would arrive in Cape Town,- “The Gateway to Africa” looking for an adventure.
We provided vehicles, guides, information and a range of different tours into the African Mainland. Part of the fun was sitting in our Cape Town offices while poring over maps and planning the Adventure North. Of course now days things have changed - we have a team of dedicated and passionate staff available online to help our clients plan. On our website you will find a carefully selected range of overland adventures, wildlife safaris, lodges and travel packages. Our aim has always been to offer quality affordable experiences through this amazing continent.
Tours range from Day Trips, small group tours to traditional multi country overland adventures. Depending on budget and comfort , clients can choose between camping and accommodated options. We offer our own tours and safaris as well as partner up with various other operators to cover the many different routes - this allows us to empower locals in the countries we cover and remain a proudly African Company.
One of the benefits to our clients is that our longevity and name allows us to negotiate the best possible prices and deals to pass on. So weather you are looking to see the thunder of Vic Falls or catch a glimpse of an elusive leopard. Whether it is to join one of our scheduled safari tours or plan your own private itinerary, please contact us and let one of our specialists help you plan an amazing experience.
