Africa Exclusive is one of the country’s leading safari specialists. Set up in 1990 we are based in Northampton and design unique tailormade safaris throughout East, Central and Southern Africa sometimes combined with Indian Ocean islands. We are growing steadily and only deal in high value/top quality travel arrangements.
We employ 15 people all of whom have a passion for Africa. So we are a mid-sized specialist company, very creative and highly customer focused. Everyone has a clearly defined job to do with easy to understand yet challenging objectives.
We regularly require people to design and sell these top quality safaris. To do this you have to be a natural salesperson and a gifted communicator, creative and passionate. You will be responsible for designing top quality safaris for demanding clients and must have the ability and credibility to convince them that they should entrust you with this task. We will provide the experience of Africa if you have not yet visited the continent.
Africa Exclusive also has a small team of travel administrators whose job it is to ensure that every holiday works like clockwork and that every client is fully prepared for their holiday. A typical tailormade safari may have ten flights, some in small planes, six different camps or lodges, numerous transfers and may involve travel to two or three countries. We check every detail of each client’s requirements down to diet and drink’s preferences. Clearly this role requires considerable administrative ability and attention to detail.

When you book with us you receive this perfectly designed holiday, travel advice and preparation, flawless organisation of the trip, ATOL financial protection and our 25 years’ experience. Because we have excellent confidential rates with lodges and airlines, the price of your holiday will be generally the same as you would pay were you to somehow book all the lodges, transfers and flights yourself.
There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.
Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb two week safari for between £4,000 to £7,000 per person ($7,000 – $11,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
