Trust, Experience and Security when you travel with Albatros Travel in Africa

We offer scheduled and tailor-made tours to countries in southern and eastern Africa as well as to Uganda and Rwanda. What this means is that you can either purchase one of our ready-made tour packages that commences on a given date or you can contact us with your travel ideas and let us do the rest.

You might, for example, have a rough idea that you would like take your family to visit the Masai Mara in Kenya or the Serengeti in Tanzania, or a trip to see the gorillas - we will then offer our advice as to what is possible and come up with suggestions based on our experience.

We will then use our travel expertise and extensive regional networks to put together a flexible itinerary for you, possibly making suggestions for other sights or features we think you might also enjoy. We’ve been doing this for 27 years and we love the creative challenge – so you can rest assured that we’ll do our best to make your travel dreams come true. You can change elements of it as you wish until you’re happy with the result.

It’s really that simple!

Albatros Travel Africa is part of Albatros Travel A/S, a Danish travel company founded in 1986 by the biologist and writer Søren Rasmussen. Initially we only offered tours to Africa but over the years this has expanded to include worldwide destinations, with a particular emphasis on ecotourism in Greenland and Africa. We also offer cruises and arrange adventure marathon holidays in challenging environments, such as along the top of the Great Wall of China and on the Polar Ice Cap.

Furthermore we regularly set sail for the remote Arctic regions aboard our ice-strengthened small cruise ship, Corinthian II, and show people some of the wildest and most untouched areas on Earth. Sometimes we also sail our ships to Africa - below is a link to a video of one of our Zanzibar cruises.

From our beginnings in a small Copenhagen office we now have travel centres spanning the world. Aside from our head office in Copenhagen, there are others in four African countries, as well as Greenland, China, Finland, Germany and India. Despite our expansion, we retain close links with our tour leaders, guides and partners, meaning we are still able to offer you the same high level of quality service.


Albatros Travel is registered with the Travel Guarantee Fund and is also a member of the Danish Travel Agency Association, as well as a variety of worldwide travel organisations including:

- ATTA (Advancing Tourism to Africa)

In 2007 we were awarded a travel trade 'Oscar' - 'The Danish Travel Award' - being the winner in the category 'Best Leisure Travel Agency'. In 2011 our partner resort, the Legend Golf and Safari Resort in South Africa was voted the country’s best golf resort. The company continues to be a leader in offering tours that meet Scandinavian standards of quality at fair prices.
