About Us

AfricaAway is a major constituent of the independent UK-based travel company – The Away Company. Our website covers every single African country, and provides links to several individual country-specific websites – Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Zanzibar.

As a company we are regarded as one of the leading African tour operators, renowned for developing a number of unique and innovative activities.

Each of AfricaAway's websites is packed with full details of each country to be visited - National Parks, Camps and Lodges, and the wide range of activities that can be undertaken in each.

ZambiaAway itself deals with every aspect of tourism in Zambia, from game viewing by vehicle, through bird watching, river safaris and fishing, to honeymoons, family holidays and viewing the iconic Victoria Falls.

So important is the latter as an African tourist destination that we are devoting this entire website to this topic.

Walking is a major activity for us and we also have developed specialist websites offering a wide variety of walking safaris in both Zambia and Kenya.

Further websites include a detailed ‘Safari Diary’, recounting details of actual safaris undertaken by us in Zambia, Kenya and Tanzania, and a guide to ‘Safari Facts and Figures’ that will allow you to impress your fellow guests around the campfire at night.

The Away Company's other destination country is Spain, where we are able to offer a large variety of Mediterranean-based holiday properties, together with a selection of rural retreats in the Granada area. Again we specialise in offering walking (and indeed golf) holidays here, in and around Spain’s classic holiday destination of Nerja.

This unusual combination - Africa and Spain - arises simply from their being the two countries in which the Away Company's innovative founder, Dr Henry Southworth, spends much of his time travelling. Henry's belief is that you should only try to sell an experience that you have a deep personal knowledge of, and a passion for.
