About Us

Privately Owned & Fully Independent

Specialist Africa Ltd is a private company registered in England and Wales No. 7024404.

Founders Nick and Sue Anstead have spent over 20 years travelling in Africa, touring some 42 diverse nations during that time. They’ve come face to face with lowland and mountain gorillas, explored ancient Saharan cities, dived with Great White Sharks, boated down the Congo, spent 6 months sailing feluccas on the Egyptian Nile, and…. more recently found some time to unwind in some of Africa’s greatest safari lodges.

From their early days of living and working as tour leaders and safari guides in Southern Africa, Egypt, Morocco and Tanzania to pioneering commercially viable small group adventure travel in Libya, Sudan and Gabon, Nick and Sue finally decided to put their many years of expertise and knowledge into their own business – Specialist Africa!
