Marvel at the beauty and fascinating culture of Africa with Bench International. 

Established in 1969 and regarded as the most prominent Africa holiday specialist for African safari tours from Australia, Bench International is committed to providing you the opportunity to take a stylish, unusual and utterly memorable trip to Africa. At Bench we pride ourselves on an unbeatable level of Africa knowledge, quality customer service and an overall standard of excellence. Our team has travelled extensively throughout this vast and enigmatic continent and have organised Africa tour packages for over 46 years, so you can be confident that we have the in-depth knowledge to put together the very best Africa holiday packages and personalised trips for our valued clients. We will be there every step of the way, until you land safely back in Australia.  

We are located in the heart of Sydney's CBD, near Darling Harbour and the Opera House. Our parent company – Southern Cross Safaris – is based in Kenya so we can guarantee you will glide effortlessly through both the booking and safari experiences. Because we have ears on the ground, it means that all of our Africa holiday packages and custom itineraries are well researched. It also means that we can guide and help you arrange the perfect trip for you. 


Choose from Our Exciting Africa Tour Packages

Aside from providing tailor-made adventure and luxury tours in Africa, we also offer a selection of group tours for those interested in travelling with others and meeting new people. These Africa holiday packages for groups include adventure camping safaris, escorted and luxury tours in Africa

When you book one of our Africa tour packages, you’re sure to create life-long memories and experiences that you will remember for years to come. There’s simply so much to see and do! You can witness the world renowned annual Wildebeest Migration in Kenya and Tanzania; marvel at the awe-inspiring beauty of Victoria Falls; delight in the vibrant sights and sounds of Cape Town; or head to Namibia to witness the sand dunes burning red at sunrise.

For the more adventurous travellers, you can cross major items off your bucket list with adrenaline-fuelled activities. Scale Africa’s highest mountain Mt Kilimanjaro; track the mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda; or take a walking safari in the remote reaches of Zambia. We also have horseback safaris, elephant-back safaris and wildlife tours in Africa available for those wanting the thrill of participating in game drives and seeing the ‘Big Five’ up close. 

For the bigger budgets and for those who want to see more of this exotic destination, we now have two of our very own private planes. We can put together an air safari, offering you a rare opportunity to safari both in Eastern and Southern Africa, all in the one trip! 

We recommend that after our clients have experienced our wildlife tours in Africa, that they head to the white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean. With the various options, the exotica of Zanzibar, untouched islands of Mozambique, or luxury resorts of Mauritius and Seychelles, what better way is there to unwind after the adventure of a safari?
