Sense of Africa Kenya
Founded in 1989, Sense of Africa, East Africa (formerly known as Vintage Africa) commenced trading as a small airline ticketing office employing 3 staff, which were essentially the former owners and close family. As the business grew it moved to larger premises and became engaged in organizing local safaris servicing the needs of tourists ‘in destination’.
In 1997 safaris and tours started in earnest servicing Kenya’s inbound international tourists. This was followed by the company’s expansion into Tanzania and the opening of our offices in Arusha in 2004.
In 2006, Tourvest became partial shareowners in the business along with all its component businesses, and was then wholly acquired in by Tourvest in 2014.
In 2015, Sense of Africa was given management control over the Tourvest subsidiaries in East Africa, inclusive of Vintage Africa Ltd. The Sense of Africa rebrand was subsequently rolled out resulting in Sense of Africa Kenya, Sense of Africa Tanzania and Sense of Africa Uganda.
Despite now being part of a much larger footprint across Africa, the company maintains its loyal and long-serving team and the basis of its traditional service orientated values which it was founded upon almost 30 years ago.
