Explore, Travel, and Dive the World

Welcome to the African and Oriental Travel Company, formed in the United Kingdom in 2012. We invite you to peruse our site and see what we offer. We specialise in tailor made safari tours in Tanzania, Kenya, and Zambia. In addition we offer a few select diving holidays in Tanzania and around the globe.

Our diving holidays are all based in small resorts and are not just dive adventures, but tailor made adventures or relaxing experiences based upon what you want.

We also offer a small selection of tailor made cultural experiences and adventures. These include the Silk Road in Uzbekistan, and trekking to the Everest base camp in Nepal. We even offer an annual expedition to the Antarctic. Our menu of safaris and holidays may seem eclectic, but it is in fact driven by the demand of our clients.

We have 18 years experience in operating tailor made safaris in Tanzania and Dive Holidays in Pemba Island, Zanzibar. In 2012 we opened our British Company to better serve our clients. Due to the absolutely bespoke nature of every safari, our preferred contact is by email. Once this has been established we will arrange to call you and discuss your safari or dive requirements. You can of course use the contact form to get in touch with us with all of your requirements or drop us a line on the number below.

When you book with us, you are paying for decades of experience. We also travel regularly, and know how important it is to get the right experience for the best price.

Beautiful Places

We only sell what we have done. We have cut back on our number of destinations to concentrate on Tanzania Safari tours, and dive vacations in small family run resorts. You will always find yourself in small boutique resorts, or simple dive resorts or lIve Aboard dive boats which have a family atmosphere.

Easy Booking

Booking could not be simpler. We ask that you email us, so that we can assess all of the information that we need to best tailor your Safari or Dive Holiday. We will then reply to you with a suggested itinerary, which you will no doubt wish to amend. At this stage we like to speak to people and find out exactly what you want. Then we can build your adventure. Some people like to speak to us straight away – if that is the case, then feel free to call us using the numbers on the website.

Passionate Travel

passionate travel
We have been travelling since we were children. We only offer holidays to places that we are absolutely passionate about. We recently cut our offering dramatically to concentrate on what we felt was truly special. As Tony Wheeler of Lonely planet guides famously said “Good places go bad, and bad places go out of business.” Our passion for travel means that we keep on top of the travel scene in all of our destinations to make sure that you always get the very best, in the “good places”.
