We love everything about Africa and we want you to love it too! Our knowledge and expertise are there to point you in the right direction, tell you honestly what we think, and show you what good looks like when it comes to making choices about what works for you.

​Our small group tours represent the best in group travel, with a handpicked selection that marries affordable luxury and fabulous itineraries, ensuring your experience is the absolute best it can be.

​Our founder Sam Sellers (aka Safari Sam) grew up in Africa and has been travelling back to Africa for more than 25 years since with her family, friends and strangers who along the way became lifelong buddies. Her passion for Africa is the guiding light for every trip we plan and every tour we approve, which means we only partner with people on the ground who live and breathe a true passion for Africa. What's more, every Tour Leader that guides our small group trips is not only extremely knowledgeable and experienced, but their love of Africa will shine through - it's infectious!

​We know planning your African adventure can be overwhelming...from where to go, the best time to travel, what your realistic budget should be to do everything you want to on your dream trip, and everything in between. Choose one of our tours and it's all done for you, or let one of our consultants get to know you and together we can create the perfect tailor-made holiday you didn't even know existed.

​No matter what shape your adventure takes, we know one thing for sure...you are going to LOVE Africa!

We had the most incredible honeymoon and honestly can’t thank Sam enough for all of her planning and advice! From the beautiful accommodation to each activity, recommendation and transfer, everything was planned meticulously to make the most of every minute of the trip (eg. Visiting Vic Falls from the other side and visiting some highlights of the Panorama Route en route to the airport). Having met Sam in person, she completely understood what we were looking for in a honeymoon and created the most memorable, special trip we could have imagined. We were extremely impressed with the time and care that was taken in the planning process and the way that we managed to see so many different places in only a couple of weeks (Victoria Falls, safari in South Africa, beach break in Zanzibar and even some day trips across borders!). Sam even helped us postpone the trip twice (due to Covid restrictions) and couldn’t have been more helpful when we had questions. It was an absolute trip of a lifetime and we can’t recommend ‘Take Me To Africa’ more highly.

Fantastic trip. Due to COVID we had to keep postponing our holiday but communication with Sam was fantastic. The schedule put together was exactly what we were looking for and the trips/hotels/lodges were perfect.

Trip of a lifetime! My wife booked this after seeming them at a show in London. Having never been to Africa I really wasn't sure was to expect. It was also the first real group tour we'd ever been on. Right from landing at Victoria Falls and meeting our guide for the trip Sam, it was truly excellent. The Take me to Africa team are clearly very knowledge and every part of the trip had clearly been very carefully considered. All the hotels were excellent and all the locations really good. My favourite was the lodge in the private game reserve.Its the first time we have ever been on safari and it was truly magical. We had a really amazing trip of a lifetime so my thanks go out to Sam and all the people who helped us and looked after us along the way.

We decided to go for a safari in Africa for our honeymoon and have chosen Take me To Africa for a bespoken tour. Sam, who look after us, was extremely helpful, knowledge and she fully understands our needs. She organised a fantastic tour between Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zanzibar booking for us stunning accommodation and all the transfers needed. Everything absolutely perfect, from extra welcoming stuff, delicious food, beautiful atmosphere, honestly we could have asked for more. Even when our outbound was cancelled because of a technical problem, Sam was very efficient on resolving the situation and she made sure everything was re-arranged for us. I will definitely recommend Take me To Africa to anyone who would love an exclusive and special trip to Africa.
