Farside Africa is a small, personal travel company specialising in tailor-made safaris and holidays to East and Southern Africa, Morocco, Gabon, Oman and the Indian Ocean Islands.

At Farside Africa we don’t believe an authentic holiday to Africa can be packaged. With our years of experience and detailed knowledge of the countries and the lodges, we make it our aim to create something special and at no extra cost than booking direct. We favour smaller, owner-run lodges, guest houses and hotels where we believe you will enjoy a genuine and unforgettable African experience.

Africa is a wonderful continent and has so much to offer but it can be daunting knowing where to start. This is where we come in. Whether you want to go on your first safari, are planning your honeymoon, seeking adventure or beach relaxation - or a combination of all of these - we will create a unique, individual itinerary suited to both you and your budget.

Farside Africa is TTA and ATOL bonded, so your money is fully protected when you book with us.

Why Africa?

Africa is a wonderful continent and a unique experience. Understand and learn about it and you will love it. But it is not always easy to find out how to get there, where the best places are to go, and at what time of year. This is where Farside Africa can help.

Africa is a hugely exciting destination with endless opportunities from diving with great white sharks to twitching at some of the world's rarest birds, horse riding through herds of animals to camel trekking in the desert, or gliding down a river in a canoe between hippos and crocodiles.

Many people think that Africa is a place of early mornings and bumpy roads and not the ideal relaxing spot for your dream holiday. But think again!

The palm fringed beaches of the Indian Ocean are waiting, as are exotic isles and lakes with snorkelling and diving over pristine reefs, deep sea fishing, sailing on traditional dhows, chilled-out beach retreats and delicious seafood.
