Tamsin & Cooke Travel celebrated its 30th anniversary last year! Living on three continents - Africa, Europe and North America - and enjoying extensive international travel led owners Tamsin and Bill into a hitherto empty niche market - that of totally client-centric Travel Design.

From the outset they have sought to serve independent minded travelers. These are people who want to  “cherry-pick” their travel, whether it be places, safari camps, outback stations, castles, B&B’s, culinary exploration, sightseeing, adventure - whatever their preferences - and have these melded by seasoned professionals into a journey beyond the ordinary. Their journeys enable them, the traveler, to take the pulse of the land and feel the heartbeat of the people.


It is to these wonderful, interesting and exciting clients that Tamsin & Cooke owes its success. It is through their determination to travel their way, to explore our marvelous planet, and to seek life-enhancing experiences that makes each week at Tamsin & Cooke fresh and invigorating.
