Why World Odyssey?

Personal Service

World Odyssey is an owner-managed company dedicated to providing a personal, professional and detailed specialist knowledge about the countries in which we operate.

Local Knowledge

Holiday time is precious and getting it right is crucial. All of our Travel Consultants have lived and operated safaris in Africa and travelled extensively throughout the Indian Ocean, Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and South America. We are in the exciting position of being able to share our knowledge and love of these countries with you. Please see ‘Who We Are’ for further information on our team.

One Point of Contact

Each one of our specialists is focused on a specific region. Our specialists travel extensively to their destinations and can advise you from their own personal experience. You will have contact with the same specialist throughout the planning process and their enthusiasm for the destination will mean they can tailor your trip to your exact requirements. They can ensure you make the most of your time and budget during your trip.

100% Tailor-made

World Odyssey arrange tailor-made safaris and treks for individuals or small groups and each and every itinerary is arranged according to your precise requirements. We like to discuss and formulate the itinerary together with you to ensure that your wishes and expectations are met from the outset.

Financial Protection

We are fully bonded with ATOL, which guarantees complete financial protection for the monies that you pay for your holiday. We hold an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (ATOL) issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (ATOL number 5345). When you buy an ATOL protected air inclusive holiday from us, you will receive a confirmation invoice from us (or via our authorised agent through which you booked) confirming your arrangements and your protection under our ATOL. In the unlikely event of our insolvency the CAA will ensure that you are not left stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking.

Fully Licensed

We are a member of ATTA and of the tourism bodies SATOA and LATA. These regional tourism groups provide information and support.

Insider Access

The hotels, lodges and camps in which you stay, and the guides who share their knowledge with you on a trek or safari, are the ultimate keys to any successful trip. These are the factors that ensure you have an experience that you will always remember . Through our own travels, we have individually hand-picked our overseas ground operators who are dedicated to providing the same level of technical expertise and professionalism as ourselves and we have chosen the hotels, camps and lodges that we feel will offer the very best experience in a particular place at a given time of the year.

Health & Safety

We conduct full health & safety assessments on individual lodges and hotels to keep you safe during your stay.

The Best Guides

The guides on your holiday make the difference between a good trip and an outstanding one. Our guides are hand picked by us or our local partners as the best available. Offering more than just dates and names, they strive to offer a real insight into their country and can provide you with exclusive insider access. So whether you want a tour of the pyramids with your own Egyptologist or would like to try your hand at elephant polo in Jaipur our experts will know just how to make it happen. This combination of expertise and luxury creates truly inspirational travel experiences.


We are an independent tour operator which allows us the freedom to pick and choose what we believe to be the best properties in any particular country. We have no financial ties with any hotel groups or airlines and this allows us to be totally objective in our selection of accommodation. If we feel that a certain property no longer lives up to its billing then we will steer you away to what we feel is a better or more suitable establishment. By close and continual monitoring of standards in all countries in which we operate, we are able to ensure that you will always receive the advice that is right for you.


We have incredible contacts with the best hotels globally and can therefore not only offer you access to these prestigious properties but competitive prices too. Competiveness and value for money are very important to all of us. Through our network of Destination Management Companies in all the countries in which we operate we are able to source fantastic holidays at extremely competitive prices.
