    Curated travel experiences in Africa's most beautiful and captivating places.

Experiential Travel is for those who wish to experience the world with authenticity like never before.

We're experienced in hosting and sending clients from all over the world. Our story began as a small-group tour operator, before expanding into curating bespoke African itineraries for those who prefer to travel independently.

"I was driving along a quiet, dusty road one morning in the Etosha National Park, Namibia when I caught a movement on a ridge to my right. I love Etosha for the stark white backdrop it offers. The Etosha pan (dry salt lake) is 4,730sqkm. The park is mostly flat with low scrub and small trees confined to the springs dotted around the coast of the lake. Rocky outcrops like this are few and favoured lookouts for predators.

"I slowed my car to stop and scanned the ridgeline. And then I saw it. The cheetah moved to the edge of the outcrop, ignoring me and staring intently at a gazelle halfway to the horizon. I quickly reached for my camera perched on the passenger's seat to fire off a few shots. Only then did I notice the healed injury in the cat's flank." - Neville Jones

Commentary from the transfer drivers was also a... Read this review

  • Trip of a lifetime

    Neville planned a trip of a lifetime for us - never to be forgotten. He carefully listened to our dreams and made them a reality. We felt safe at all times and always knew what the next steps were, thanks to TravelKey. When our bags were left behind in Nairobi, Neville went above and beyond to ensure they found their way to us in the middle of the Serengeti!... Read this review

  • You considered every detail.

    Just wanted to say a huge Thankyou for organising such a wonderful trip. We absolutely loved it, just not long enough for me. You considered every detail. Every camp was different and very unique and luxurious. We were treated like kings and queens which was kind of embarrassing. Africa is most certainly a captivating place and we loved interacting with our fabulous guides.

  • Exceeded Every Expectation!

    We've been waiting to take this trip for 30 years and had a very clear idea of what we wanted to see and do. Neville created an itinerary that incorporated it all and then some; from safari to the great migration to gorilla and chimpanzee trekking to boat rides with hippos and cultural immersion. This trip had it all. Accommodations and experiences were amazing with knowledgable guides and a... Read this review
