African Safari Experience

If yes, you’ve come to the right place! Welcome to The African Touch; our tours are like no other thanks to our co-founder, Karoma, who shares his African heritage with our customers allowing them to see and touch parts of Africa that are not accessible to the average tourist.

Are you looking for an African safari experience like no other?

Your tour will be guided from the moment you contact us to the moment you step back on the plane to return home, ensuring that you get the most out of what you have paid for. So, what can you expect on your next African safari experience with us? Read More

Sights and Experiences

We pride our safari tours on offering more than just the breath-taking sights of the African landscapes. You will have the opportunity to interact with the locals and explore markets and villages, including the game sanctuary where Karoma grew up.

You will see everything from the Victoria Falls, to the Namib Desert, to the rare wildlife of Kenya. For more information on the specifics of what you might come across on your adventure, read the safari tour breakdowns on our website or get in touch with us and we can walk you through any questions you have. 

Your Tour Guides

Each tour is guided by Karoma and three of our other staff members from Kenya, and the logistics are run by Tasha back in New Zealand, so you know you will be in safe hands both before and during your trip.

We believe that we are the best and most unique African safari service on the market, but don’t just take our word for it. We ask all of our customers to provide us with their thoughts on their experience, like Gae and Rod Spencer from Northland:

“Tasha and Karoma, what a stunning time we had. Thank you for the most fantastic experience of our lives.”
