Explore Africa with Bench International

Established in 1969, Bench International is Australia's original and most prominent Africa safari specialist. This year we are celebrating 45 years of providing stylish, unusual and utterly memorable Africa holiday packages to hundreds of thousands of clients.

We are located in the heart of Sydney's CBD, nearby Darling Harbour and the Opera House, and our parent company – Southern Cross Safaris – is based in Kenya so we can guarantee you will glide effortlessly through both the booking and travelling experiences.

In addition to offering tailor-made itineraries, we also offer a selection of small group safaris, Escorted Tours, and Adventure Camping Tours for those interested in having a group experience. And for those who want to make a difference on their holiday, we have recently introduced Volunteering Trips which offer a huge variety of community, wildlife, and environmental projects and provide an authentic cultural experience.

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, 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.

Unwind after your safari on the white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean, with the exotica of Zanzibar, untouched islands of Mozambique, or luxury resorts of Mauritius and Seychelles.

Making a choice from so many wonderful options may not be so easy but our friendly, safari specialist consultants are on hand to assist and advise.

So contact our team today and let us help make your Africa dream come true!
