Odyssey offers a wide range of stimulating educational Africa tours with a learning bias in the daily itinerary. What differentiates us as a tour operator is that our tours and the journey created including those to Africa have an itinerary and a tour guide and are designed for active, inquisitive travellers in a small group environment that is typically comprised of between 6 to 12 like-minded travellers. In Africa our small group tours will take you to Luxor , Casablanca and the bustling souks that define Moroccan culture, the red sea or the roman ruins in Tunisia or Algeria . All of our educational Africa tours to Southern Africa , North Africa , or East Africa through to Egypt and the middle east as well as Morocco reflect our philosophy to offer a wide range of educational, cultural, and heritage journeys that expand horizons and broaden the mind going beyond spectacular scenery a game lodge and a African safari.

For trip and safari experience we offer on the African continent it is about an experience the journey not just the place. Of course visits to a private game reserve or national park on a South African tour to see the elephant or Wildebeest or watch the African sky at night create trip memories but this is all part of the collective African adventure experience that builds you overall awareness of the place from the culture, landscape and history. As a tour operator it is our quest on a trip to go deeper to explore providing the traveller with knowledge of the Nile and ancient Egypt and the links to Sicily or the atlas mountain and the dead sea , the history and relationships in Africa run on and on.
