FUN FACTTopdeck Travel was founded in 1973 by the Australian Graham ‘Skroo’ Turner and two of his friends who decided they needed to see the world. They invested in two double-decker buses while in England and then set up a travel company, and that was how Topdeck Travel was born.

Seeing the sand-dunes of the Sahara is an overwhelming experience and one that you may need to satisfy in yourself. Seeing the pyramids rise from the heat can cause emotions you never knew existed.

There is nowhere like Africa. It has it all, the wild game, the wide-open expanse, the rugged landscape, and mountain ranges, the sense of wonderment that you have genuinely gone somewhere different.
