WOW!!!!!! Let's just say, it would be very difficult to verbalize how great our trip was as a result of booking with Certified Africa. My wife and I are avid travelers, touching 16 countries so far. We usually create our own itinerary and almost ALWAYS focus on hanging with locals to gain the most intimate and organic experiences possible. Nonetheless, this was our 15-year Anniversary trip and thought it would be a great idea to allow someone else to plan the trip and sit back and enjoy it. With only an introduction call to discuss some must haves and our set budget, Certified Africa DELIVERED!!!!!!!! Creating a custom itinerary that blew our minds and expectations. We have already begun planning our Tanzania and Zanzibar trip for 2022. From me and my beautiful wife to you........What are you waiting for????????????? Book your next trip to the Motherland with the only travel company we feel comfortable recommending, Certified Africa! Richard and Raquel

After booking, select a travel insurance option that includes a "Cancel for Any Reason" option to cover your non-refundable travel experience and/or flight. Trip cancellation insurance is the only means of receiving reimbursement for non-refundable expenses should you cancel your trip for any reason, whether voluntarily or as a result of Certified Africa's actions.

If your payment is declined we will attempt 2 consecutive days.  After a 3rd failed attempt you charged an interest fee.
