KDR was in the travel and tourism business from 2001 to 2017.
It ran as a booking agent and travel advisor for a range of websites that primarily dealt with the Southern Africa and Indian Ocean islands.
In 2017 the directors decided to go in a different direction technology wise. The majority of the websites were taken over by Southern Routes and a few went to independent agents that had worked with KDR in the past.

For all bookings, please contact the websites directly.

Guided Tours, Mobile safari's, Escorted holidays and coach tours are often perceived as rigid and inflexible with groups being herded in and out of attractions. The reality, however, is very different and adventure seekers are starting to wake up to the benefits of escorted tours to Africa.
Gone also are the days of uncomfortable overland trucks with engines that have done one Trans Africa trip to many, the modern Mobile Safari can be as comfortable and luxurious as you want to make it, run by professional guides with support at hand any time it is needed

Escorted tours are starting to experience a renaissance, with increased demand for guided journeys in 2016 and 2017, says Julien P. Janssen, Head of Guided Journeys at Thompsons Africa.
