WELCOME! At our site we have assembled what we believe to be the finest collection of safari opportunities available in Africa.

Cape to Cairo is a specialist tour operator for African safaris and tours, from Cape Town to ... Cairo. Cape to Cairo has been in operation since 1994, during which time we have booked hundreds of safaris and tours and thousands of airline tickets.

Cape to Cairo is owned by Barbara Levedahl, a South African resident in Washington DC.   Barbara  conducted her own safaris in Botswana 20 years ago, and came to the U.S. in 1981 after meeting her husband, Kirk, who was a Naval Officer on duty with NATO in the delightful Cascais area outside Lisbon, Portugal.  She obtained a B.A. in Architecture from Berkeley, and an M.Arch.  from Columbia University in NY, specializing in the vernacular architecture of Africa and the Middle East.  She has worked for South African Airways, conducted  her own safaris in Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Malawi and has traveled extensively throughout Africa and the world.

As a small company we assure you of personalized service, quality and value.  We visit Africa frequently to experience the places to which we send our clients.  While we love safaris and wildlife and love discussing safaris with our clients we are also very knowledgeable about the more cosmopolitan aspects of South Africa and can assist you with travel for business as well as pleasure.

We believe that our safari packages are the highest quality for value available. We work directly with specialty safari operators on the ground in Africa saving you the mark-up from several middle-men and the cost of publishing expensive brochures. We have low operating overheads, and we use our knowledge to ensure that you will stay with the best operators using the best facilities, and spend as much time as possible on safari and and not "filling-time" in transit hotels.

In addition to our safari expertise, we retail airline tickets to Africa from one of the world's top airline wholesalers.  Because of this experience we know all the cheapest and most convenient ways to get to and around Africa, and when you book with us you will get a package for international and regional airlines as well as safari bookings.  Because of our business arrangements we make and control your airline reservations directly.  We have an up to the minute picture of how your safari package and airline travel will fit together and can immediately respond to inevitable schedule changes. 

When you book through us you will get the same prices as booking directly with the operators in Africa, but we  work out all those nettlesome details that make or break an itinerary such as transfers and hotels at waypoints in your travel.  We know from experience where problems are likely to arise, or where inevitable last minute schedule changes by airlines - yes, this is an important part of planning - will affect your travel.  Because of our airline expertise we can organize your itinerary to take advantage of routings that will save you lost days in transfers and money for hotels at waypoints.
