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

FAQs

You have 48 hours from the time of booking to cancel a travel experience for a full refund. After 48hours, the travel experience deposit - and all future payments - are non-refundable.  We highly recommend you purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy that includes trip cancellation coverage  after booking that includes a "Cancel for Any Reason" option to cover your non-refundable travel experience.


Life happens, if you are unable to travel for some reason and you cannot apply a travel insurance cancellation policy, the transfer of your booking to another person is available.


At the discretion of Certified Africa, some or all of your monies paid may be credited towards a future travel experience or booking.

As a courtesy, we offer payment plans for our trips. Your monthly payments start the following month after booking on the same day you paid your deposit. A monthly payment of the minimum amount due is required each month via debit. You may contact us to change your payment date after booking prior to 72 hours of your payment date. Our system sends courtesy reminders about your upcoming payment but you are responsible for ensuring your payment is successful and your card is up to date. If your payment is declined we will attempt 2 consecutive days.  After a 3rd failed attempt you charged an interest fee.


As of January 1, 2020, all payment plans require monthly automated payments to be debited from your credit/debit card.  Manual payments where clients can log in and pay at their leisure can no longer be supported. At any time, you may contact our office to pay in full.

These are some airlines that our travelers have used in the past. Please note that we do not have any personal connection to any of these airlines.
