Trip Inspiration

Travel Beyond

Let Us Inspire You

Travel Beyond is a company of travel specialists dedicated to designing custom journeys that responsibly immerse guests into some of the world’s most inspiring destinations.

Founded in 1975, Travel Beyond was the first US-based company to plan upscale safaris to Africa. 2022 marks our 47th year, and today we are proud to be the largest photographic safari operator in the US, designing custom trips for each traveler, rather than offering packaged group tours.

Our full-time, salary-only consultants (we have no commissioned salespeople) hold deep knowledge, with more than 150 years of combined experience in Africa travel. They offer independent travel advice based on thousands of hours on the ground vetting camps, lodges and activities in Africa. Outside of Africa, Travel Beyond specializes in South America and Southeast Asia travel.



In 2021, Travel Beyond was honored with a Fifth-Place position on the exclusive Travel+Leisures World’s Best award as a “Top 10 Safari Outfitter,” having also received the award from 2017-2019.

Additionally, our travel consultants are often awarded some of the travel industry’s most prestigious designations, including:  the Travel + Leisure A-List for Africa, Conde Nast Traveler’s Travel Specialist designation and Luxury Travel Advisor’s Trendsetter lists.
