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 AfricaAway is regarded as one of the leading African tour operators, renowned for developing a number of unique and innovative tourist activities.

Each of AfricaAway's websites are 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.

Specifically, KenyaAway deals with every aspect of tourism in Kenya, from conventional game viewing by vehicle, through bird watching, beach holidays and ballooning, to honeymoons, family holidays, viewing the iconic wildebeest migration, and climbing Mount Kenya (together with Mount Kilimanjaro, located a short distance away, in northern Tanzania).

Thus effectively ‘Kenya Walking Safaris’ is a subsidiary website to KenyaAway itself.

Historically our specialist destination in Africa has always been Zambia, where we are heavily committed to organising dedicated walking safaris, one of the most popular activities to be found here.

This was really our motivation for developing a means by which we could put together a similar operation in Kenya, and, although walking in Kenya will never match that offered in Zambia, we believe that our Kenya Walking Safari concept still outstrips any other walking opportunities that can be found in Kenya.

Incidentally, 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. Needless to say, walking is strongly represented here as well.

This unusual combination - Africa and Spain - arises simply from these being the two countries in which the Away Company's innovative founder, Dr Henry Southworth, above, 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.
