A luxury tour operator with bases in Scotland, the USA and South Africa. Outbound in Africa creates bespoke, tailor made itineraries throughout Africa.

We love sharing our passion for Africa and follow the travel trends closely to see what’s new and what’s trendsetting in the travel industry, keeping it current and bespoke for all our discerning travellers.

Through working with local guides and accommodations that take on social responsibilities, our mission is to offer authentic and socially responsible travel experiences without comprising on luxury.

Outbound in Africa has travelled to all the destinations we specialize in. Often spending quite a few weeks a year testing out the luxurious safari lodges to the rustic adventure camps, walking safaris to the Cape Winelands. This allows us to make sure the standard is kept to a high and we can guarantee to offer a little bit of Africa to suit each and every one of our travellers.

You can meet the team at travel shows and exhibitions across Africa, the UK and North America every year.

Lucy Blunt – Safari Specialist


UK +44 (0) 7584687450

Scottish-born Lucy moved to South Africa in 2007. Trained as a chef, she traded the kitchen for the stables when she volunteered at a lodge specialising in horse riding safaris in the Greater Kruger area. She was well and truly bitten by the African bush bug and went on to manage an exclusive lodge in Thornybush Nature Reserve. Following the call of the wild, she freelanced all over South Africa and Botswana as a relief manager and chef.

She’s built up an incredible range of experience and knows just what guests expect on the hospitality front. She has fantastic working relationships with a number of lodges in Botswana and the Greater Kruger area. Super organised, she handles all enquiries, reservations and logistics for our clients.
