Traveling with Ubuntu
How it Works
STEP 1: DESIGNING YOUR TRIP
Our process begins with listening and understanding the needs of our clients. We take the time to have in-depth conversations about travel goals, special interests, specific dates, medical concerns, and virtually every memorable aspect of your journey. Considering each country and lodge has its own style, opportunities, and accommodations, it’s important to dive deep into our clients approach to travel, their preferences, and even common annoyances to build truly personalized, bucket-list-worthy itineraries.
STEP 2: PREPARING FOR YOUR JOURNEY
Worried about logistics and pre-travel care? We take care of all the ‘before you go’ information, including necessary health requirements for travel, instructions how to obtain travel visas, luggage requirements—the list goes on. Ubuntu Travel takes all the stress out of preparing for a vacation overseas and leaves you feeling confident and eager for your adventure.
STEP 3: CREATING LIFELONG MEMORIES
Once you embark on the journey of a lifetime, let’s make sure things run smoothly. Our Meet and Assist Teams on the ground are devoted to ensuring your African journey is seamless and look after your group every step of the way. Not only that, but our white glove service is unparalleled and we consistently raise the bar to accommodate even the most unique requirements and preferences.

“Of the many great trips we have taken, this one will clearly be remembered forever as the greatest, most interesting, and most fun. It was so special and we could not have had such an amazing experience without your help and guidance.”
"My wife and I have had the privilege of traveling to many areas of the world. Without question, South Africa is one of our favorite destinations. We have been to South Africa three times and thoroughly enjoyed what was clearly an ""out-of-this-world"" experience. The attention to detail in offering us maximum exposure to the flora, fauna, people and history of this incredible part of the world was off the chart. The transportation, accommodations, food and fabulous South African wines were all first cabin. The Ubuntu Team and their ground support tended to every possible detail making this a very safe and pleasurable trip for all of us. I highly recommend traveling with the Ubuntu team on any future adventures to South Africa that they arrange."
"When making a once in a lifetime trip, it is best to not leave things to chance or just have an average experience. We were very pleased that the Ubuntu Travel team made our Africa trip an unforgettable experience for all of us. There was nothing average about it and every detail had been carefully planed while still being in a very relaxing environment. Adults and kids had a blast! The blend of outdoor experiences and luxury was just perfect. The meals, guides and accommodations took the safari experience to another level. Thank You!”
“Dear Kyle and the Ubuntu Travel Team, thank you for everything you did to ensure a great family experience in South Africa. Your attention to details, the first-class lodging and guides all made for a memorable family experience. It was a wonderful family trip as all three generations thoroughly enjoyed themselves and walked away with memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for an incredible experience. "
"Selecting a competent travel service is essential if one is planning a safari in Africa. It’s also preferable if that travel agency is located and is owned by residential South Africans. The third essential factor would include agents, who themselves, both love to travel and are expert at experiences available at safari locations. The owners of Ubuntu Travel Group are just such people. We used their services to plan and experience a 12 day trip to the Kruger National Park area in South Africa visiting three different camp locations. The trip exceeded our expectations and we are already planning a similar trip with them next year."
"Ubuntu Travel provided me with the experience of a lifetime. From Safari lodges to cycling to fly fishing, the organization and individual guides were absolutely stellar. I absolutely will do this again."
“Exploring Africa had been at the top of our bucket list. Thanks to Ubuntu’s unsurpassed knowledge and turnkey logistical expertise, we experienced Africa like we never imagined. We immersed ourselves in the stunning beauty during excursions, and retreated to the comfort of our luxurious lodges for feasting and fun amidst the magical sounds of the African nights. We will certainly return to Africa with Ubuntu in the future.”
“Both of our experiences [traveling with Ubuntu] were remarkable in so many ways. The lodges where we stayed, the culinary experiences, the people we met, and of course the wildlife were beyond our expectations and imagination. Their itineraries provide unique experiences and insights that you would not be able to experience on your own or through a traditional travel agency. We will cherish our memories and spectacular photos forever.”
"Everyone in our family agrees that the South Africa trip we planned with Ubuntu Travel exceeded every expectation. The Greens expertly handled all travel arrangements and from the moment we landed in Johannesburg, to the moment we flew back home, every detail was taken care of. The lodges we were referred to were beautiful, the service was excellent, but it was the knowledgeable guides and incredible animal experiences that made our adventure unforgettable. We enjoyed our experience so much that we are relying on Ubuntu Travel and the Greens to plan another trip for us, this time to Tanzania to see the great migration. Can't wait!"
"I am writing this letter to you to express Sheila and my gratitude for arranging, managing and executing two perfect trips to Africa. We have been constant travelers for many years and have experienced many tour operators and organizers. Your trips rate amongst the top! Both times we have traveled with you turned out to be extremely satisfying experiences. The last trip with our children and grandchildren was well planned and well executed. We got to see many animals, learn about the culture of the habitants and spend some good time together with friends and family. The ground arrangements were handled very professionally and the amount of planning was clearly evident throughout the trip. I would not hesitate to recommend Ubuntu travel group and the Green team for future travel in Africa."
"Our trip to South Africa was the most incredible trip that we've ever taken. We plan on returning again with our family. Thank you to the Ubuntu Team for putting together this wonderful event. There is no way we would haves seen what we did without the hard work and dedication to make this the best YPO couples retreat ever."
"I visited Africa for a spectacular gathering of global entrepreneurs with my wife. As Global Chairman of the organization hosting the event, I was treated to some fantastic experiences. My wife and I decided we would one day visit again, with our children, knowing that we could never exceed the experience we had on that first trip. To our surprise, our family trip to Africa coordinated by Ubuntu Travel Group was even more special, exclusive, and exquisite than the first visit we made. Jill and I decided, on that trip, that we must go again, with our entire extended family, but only if the trip was planned by Ubuntu and the Green Family. If you are searching for a unique and surprising experience, travel to Africa with no one else."
"Without question our trips to Africa with the Green Family and Ubuntu Travel stand out as highlights in our family's memory of experiences. We enjoyed time with the Greens, and three other couples, in Cape Town and Kruger in 2010 via a well-orchestrated trip that exposed us to an experience beyond our expectations. We then traveled with them again to Zambia and Botswana in 2016, this time on a YPO family experience with over 100 people. During each trip, we were impressed by the exceptional accommodations, gracious hosts and staff, and the overall experience working with the Ubuntu Travel Team. Even while traveling with a large group, all transfers and events were seamless. We are so thankful for all of the memories we will cherish from our adventures in Africa."
