Welcome To Iconic Africa

Explore Africa In Luxury

Bespoke Luxury African Safaris

Iconic Africa creates exclusive luxury African safari and adventure holidays for couples and families in southern and eastern Africa. Our gorgeous destinations are all handpicked and visited by Terri and John and include: the sophistication of Cape Town, the glorious wine lands of the Franschoek Valley, the tumultuous Atlantic coastal retreat of Hermanus, the most stylish safaris of the Kruger National Park, the emerald mosaic and epic wildlife of the Okavango Delta and Selinda Game Reserve, the adventure and majesty of the Victoria Falls, the last tropical island refuges floating in the cobalt blue of Mozambique and the urban fascination and history of Johannesburg – economic hub of the African continent.

A Love For Africa

Iconic Africa is the brainchild and driving passion of American based Terri Abadi and South African based John Holley. In December of 2014, Terri and John joined forces to turn a traditional travel agency into a world-beating online travel platform that showcases the African destinations which best represent Iconic Africa’s values of opulent luxury, world-beating African hospitality, delectable contemporary cuisine and most importantly an authentic commitment to wilderness conservation.

Iconic Africa is a labour of love designed to entice global travellers to African destinations that have inspired her over a lifetime of travel to this great continent. Terri’s uncontainable enthusiasm for Africa – her wildlife, her people and her wild spaces – borders on obsessive and this passion runs in the veins of the Iconic Africa team.

Based in Both South Africa and The US

Terri oversees a hub in the United States which will look after any of your queries and preparations pre and post your African-overseas travel. Start your journey to Africa with us now!

First-hand African Knowledge

Terri’s favourite way to spend the summer months is on safari with her husband and four children. She has personally visited every destination that Iconic Africa recommends and used this extensive luxury travel experience to mould Iconic Africa into one of the leading bespoke travel agencies for exclusive, luxury and adventurous African safaris and expeditions.

Authentic Conservation

A crucial aspect of Iconic Africa’s philosophy is that the destinations we represent must demonstrate a genuine commitment to the conservation of Africa’s last great wilderness areas and the rural people who live around them. Terri and John have both personally been extensively involved in education and poverty alleviation in rural Africa.

When you travel with Iconic Africa, you can rest assured that a portion of the money you spend on life-changing African vacation will be put to wilderness conservation and the alleviation of poverty in Africa. Our destinations contribute to the protection of rhino, innovative green energy, valuable ecological research, education, lion conservation and community development.

Don’t just take our word for it!

  • "A recommendation to Iconic Africa turned out to be the turnkey all-in-one solution we needed to have an amazing South Africa experience. Frankly, we were spoiled to a degree that might have ruined us for other expeditions that don't match up in the future! We are hugely grateful to Danni and the team behind her at Iconic Africa for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

  • I travel the world for my job and when it came time to take a trip of a lifetime with my family, I wanted to leave the planning and logistics to the pros. Iconic Africa created an unforgettable itinerary for us in South Africa and Rwanda that my husband, family, and I will never forget. Having contact with team members in both the US and South Africa made communication seamless and allowed me to really unwind on my vacation.

  • I think about our honeymoon every single day and look forward to Iconic Africa planning our next adventure. I can't imagine being better taken care of, both in the planning stage and during the trip itself.

  • “Our trip with Iconic Africa was literally the trip of a lifetime. We had great fun with the guides and trackers -- learned a lot, laughed a lot, and experienced more amazing animals and nature than we could have imagined. We have great memories – and photos! – from the trip. We can’t wait to go back!”

  • Three incredible trips using Iconic Africa, two to South Africa and the most recent to East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania) Impeccably organized and planned. All three trips were unique and exceptional.
