About Albatros Travel
Albatros Travel Africa is part of Albatros Travel A/S, a Danish travel company founded in 1986 by the biologist and writer Søren Rasmussen.
Initially we only offered tours to Africa but over the years this has expanded to include worldwide destinations, with a particular emphasis on ecotourism in Greenland and Africa. We also offer cruises and arrange adventure marathon holidays in challenging environments, such as along the top of the Great Wall of China and on the Polar Ice Cap. Furthermore we own a majority share in a cruise ship, the Clipper Adventurer, which has an ice strengthened hull and is capable of taking up to 122 passengers to the remote Arctic regions.
From our beginnings in a small Copenhagen office we now have travel centres spanning the world. Aside from our head office in Copenhagen, there are others in four African countries, as well as Greenland and, soon, China. Despite our expansion, we retain close links with our tour leaders, guides and partners, meaning we are still able to offer you the same high level of quality service.
We are a fully accredited member of the key African tour operator associations
Albatros Travel is registered with the Travel Guarantee Fund and is also a member of the Danish Travel Agency Association, as well as a variety of worldwide travel organisations including:

– SATSA (South Africa Tourism Services Association)
In 2007 we were awarded another travel trade ‘Oscar’ – ‘The Danish Travel Award’ – being the winner in the category ‘Best Leisure Travel Agency’. In 2011 our partner resort, the Legend Golf and Safari Resort in South Africa was voted the country’s best golf resort. The company continues to be a leader in offering tours that meet Scandinavian standards of quality at fair prices.
