The Sights & Sounds of Africa Are Calling

The rich, red clay of East Africa. The deafening thunder of the Victoria Falls crashing over a lip on the Zambezi River. The startling alarm call of a baboon sensing a leopard nearby. The kaleidoscope of botanical hues frosting the fynbos of the Cape. The lively bartering chatter at the local market. The unmistakable roar of a lion across the savanna.

Africa’s unforgettable sights and sounds are calling. Are you ready to answer? With our help, it will be easy and extraordinary to create the ultimate vacation package to Africa. Let’s get started planning your journey.

Custom Travel to East Africa & Southern Africa

Borton Overseas creates customized journeys to Africa, each crafted with your travel preferences in mind and developed to give you more than just a taste of this remarkable continent. We currently travel to East and Southern Africa, as well as the neighboring islands and beaches of the Indian Ocean.

Imagine enjoying luxury rail and river journeys and the best African safari tours, sleeping under canvas beneath a blanket of stars, immersing yourself in local cultures, gazing in awe at the world’s largest waterfalls, climbing Africa’s highest mountain, exploring savvy cities, and visiting villages barely touched by modern amenities.

The options for your vacation to Africa are endless. The delights are plenty. And the experiences are priceless.

Exotic Experiences Await

Wildlife Unlike Any Other.

If you want to see the most magnificent creatures on earth in their natural habitat, your vacation to Africa will not disappoint. From chimp and gorilla trekking to affordable African safari tours, you’ll encounter wildlife and explore wilderness like never before. You’ll be forever changed by experiences with migrating herds, exotic birds, and Africa’s very own “Big Five”– lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo.

Nature's bounty in all its glory.

Take in Africa’s incredibly varied landscapes: deserts, mountains, jungles, savannas, inland deltas, coastlines, winelands, waterholes, and much more.

Activities a-plenty for the occasional adventurer and thrill-seeker.

We can fill your vacation package to Africa with as much adventure as you desire. Hot air ballooning, mountain climbing, white-water rafting, helicopter flips, canoeing, horseback riding, walking luxury African safari tours, biking, and fishing are just a few of the options available for the thrill seeker in you.

History and culture offer deep insight.

Africa holds a history that will humble and inspire. This is a continent that has endured, overcome, and evolved with grace and dignity. From archeological sites of Olduvai, Lalibela, and Sterkfontein, to the monuments of change like Robben Island in Cape Town and the Genocide Memorial in Kigali, to museums, art galleries, and village visits to observe traditional cultures almost unchanged over time, your vacation to Africa will leave you feeling enlightened and energized.

Delectable delights for every palate.

Rich coffees and teas. Fresh fruits and vegetables. Succulent roasts and savory soups. Freshly baked breads and irresistible sweets. Your vacation to Africa will present endless opportunities to sample a wonderful variety of cuisine to take your taste buds on a journey all their own. Oh yes, did we mention world-class wines and craft beers abound?

This is Africa. Are you ready?
