Wagtail Travel


An agency dedicated to helping customers find exactly the holiday they want anywhere in the world, but focussed on Southern and Eastern Africa and the Indian Ocean, with complimentary focusses on Canada and the Caribbean. We are passionate about ensuring the best possible experience for our customers, whatever they want to do, but we are also passionate about wild places, wild creatures and the people who live there and look after them. We love to craft African Safaris, whale watching or bird watching holidays anywhere in the world, bear watching in Canada, beach breaks on beautiful exotic islands; we also do train trips, road trips, city breaks…. Social and environmental responsibility is important to us and we believe that travel is a way to promote it.

The website has in-depth information pages on our focus areas, in many cases featuring preferred hotels and, sometimes suggested itineraries. There are also links to group tours and there are cruise pages for some of the cruise destinations.

Particularly in relation to Southern Africa, much of the information is based on personal knowledge and experience and will not be available anywhere else.

Our Franchise Owners Say it Best!

HFC Website Testimonial Logos (3)
“After 28 years of working for a large organization, I decided I needed to break away and build my own empire. The travel industry had always appealed so I decided to invest some of my retirement windfall in a franchised business. I approached a large company selling franchises but was dismayed by the pushy sales techniques. “Sign up this week and we will give you this, that and the other”. It was so cheesy I did question the idea of whether buying a travel franchise was really for me. I then decided to give The Holiday Franchise Company a go. What a difference. From the 1st call, it felt that I was entering into a partnership that would offer the support I need as a new startup. I wasn’t wrong. Genuinely nice, professional people who know the industry inside out have given me immense support from day 1.”

“I have been nothing but impressed with The Holiday Franchise’s processes and support throughout. In the discussions before joining I had some family members who were sceptical about the offering and I voiced these concerns with Luke, who answered all of them honestly. It took 4 months from our initial call before joining at which I never felt rushed or pushed into it. Even after joining, I have not been hurried into launching. The Holiday Franchise Company understand people and want them to go at their own pace. I have loved the journey so far, the knowledge and support have been indispensable. It’s a nice feeling to not be on my own doing this, I feel I have a whole team of supporters at The Holiday Franchise Company cheering me on.”
