Cape to Cairo
is a specialist tour operator for African safaris and tours,
from Cape Town to ... Cairo. Cape to Cairo has been in operation since 1994,
during which time we have booked
hundreds of safaris and tours and thousands of airline tickets.
Cape to Cairo
is owned by Barbara Levedahl, a South African resident in Washington DC.
Barbara conducted her own safaris in Botswana 20
years ago, and came to the U.S. in 1981 after meeting her husband, Kirk, who was
a Naval Officer on duty with NATO in the delightful Cascais area outside
Lisbon, Portugal. She obtained a B.A. in Architecture from Berkeley,
and an M.Arch. from Columbia University in NY, specializing
in the vernacular architecture of Africa and the Middle East. She
has worked for South African Airways, conducted her own safaris in
Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Malawi and has traveled extensively throughout
Africa and the world.
As a small
company we assure you of personalized service, quality and value.
We visit Africa frequently to experience the places to which we send our
clients. While we love safaris and wildlife and love discussing safaris
with our clients we are also very knowledgeable about the more cosmopolitan
aspects of South Africa and can assist you with travel for business as
well as pleasure.
that our safari packages are the highest quality for value available. We
work directly with specialty safari operators on the ground in Africa
saving you the mark-up from several middle-men and the cost of
publishing expensive brochures. We have low operating overheads, and we
use our knowledge to ensure that you will stay with the best operators
using the best
facilities, and spend as much time as possible on safari and and not
"filling-time" in transit hotels.

of the world's top airline wholesalers. Because of this experience
we know all the cheapest and most convenient ways to get to and around
Africa, and when you book with us you will get a package for international
and regional airlines as well as safari bookings. Because of our business arrangements we make and control your airline reservations
directly. We have an up to the minute picture of how your safari
package and airline travel will fit together and can immediately respond
to inevitable schedule changes.
book through us you will get the same prices as booking directly with the
operators in Africa, but we work out all those nettlesome details
that make or break an itinerary such as transfers and hotels at waypoints
in your travel. We know from experience where problems are likely to
arise, or where inevitable last minute schedule changes by airlines -
yes, this is an important part of planning - will affect your travel. Because of our airline
expertise we can organize
your itinerary to take advantage of routings that will save you lost days
in transfers and money for hotels at waypoints.
