A name that conjures a million and one images in the mind of intrepid travellers the world over – breathtaking landscapes; fascinating ancient cultures; wide savannahs dotted with iconic wildlife; snow-capped mountains; vast deserts; dense rainforests; palm-fringed beaches…

Africa is the birthplace of humankind, where we all began. It’s a continent which gets under your skin and speaks to your soul, filled with mind-boggling diversity and a wealth of delightful contradictions, where no two days are ever the same.

And it’s the unending inspiration for Personal Collection by Thompsons Africa – our unique tribute to the land we call “home,” which brings you a range of customised travel options designed to help you explore some of the most magical destinations Africa has to offer.

In Swahili, the lingua franca of East Africa, where the penchant for African travel began more than a century ago, the word for journey is “safari”. It’s a word that has become synonymous the world over for thrilling African adventures and it forms the foundation of everything that Personal Collection stands for.

Each Personal Collection itinerary is a safari like no other, tailor-made to connect you to the spirit of Africa, showing you the beauty of her people and places, taking you on a special, personal journey of discovery.

Our destinations are endless, from the legendary plains of the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara to the thrilling Victoria Falls and Mount Kilimanjaro… From the lush jungles of Rwanda and Uganda to the mighty Zambezi river… From the sun-soaked beaches of the Seychelles to the floodplains of the Okavango Delta… And from the Mother City of Cape Town to the arid beauty of the Namib…

Our safaris are authentic in every possible way, allowing you to experience the real Africa, with a clear focus on sustainable, responsible tourism, meaning that your Personal Collection journey can also make a positive, lasting difference to both people and planet.

So let us show you an Africa you could never have imagined, on a safari created especially for you, which will change the way you see the world around you and leave you with a lifetime of incredible memories…
