African Safari Club fails

Egypt and Kenya specialist African Safari Club ceased trading on March 16th while 500 clients are overseas.

The Bromley-based operator specialised in Nile cruises, Indian Ocean cruises and safaris as well as a small ocean cruise ship that it operated offering its own cruises.

Customers have been warned that there will be no more outbound African Safari Club flights and therefore any tickets already purchased will no longer be valid.

According to a notice on the company’s website, The Civil Aviation Authority CAA will be making arrangements to ensure customers of African Safari Club can fly home at the end of their holiday. All inbound flights from Kenya and Egypt will operate as planned.



We have been advised that the above company has ceased trading from 16 March 2011.

Where customers have a booking under their ATOL 2313 customers are advised to contact the CAA tel 0844 571 7260.
