Financial Protection

Africa Exclusive is a British Company established since 1990. We are a Tour Operator specializing in arranging top quality customized safaris for a discerning clientele.

British travel companies are strictly regulated by the British Government through the Civil Aviation Authority "CAA". The CAA issues travel companies with an Air Travel Organizer's License "ATOL". This license is renewed each year after the CAA has scrutinized the company's financial accounts to ensure that it has sufficient financial liquidity. Africa Exclusive has held an ATOL license ATOL 2883 since 1994 which demonstrates that we comply with the CAA's strict financial requirements.

In addition, Africa Exclusive also protects its US and Canadian clients by maintaining an Insurance policy which will mature in the highly unlikely event of the company's insolvency. Under those circumstances that policy would refund to clients any money paid to Africa Exclusive for a vacation yet to be taken, or it would enable clients to complete their vacations if they are already traveling at the time of the insolvency. There is no legal requirement upon us to maintain such a policy, which is quite costly. We maintain it voluntarily to provide peace of mind to our valued clients.  This policy is called a Tour Operators Protection policy "TOPP".
