Unforgettable journeys,
tailor-made for you.


Tailor-made Journeys

Gane & Marshall is a long-established wildlife and adventure travel specialist providing tailor-made holidays to Africa, the Far East, the Indian Ocean islands and selected wildlife destinations around the world. We are ATOL licensed and financially bonded by the Civil Aviation. We are members of Tourism Concern's Ethical Tour Operators Group.

Gane and Marshall was established in 1991 as a specialist in East African safari and trekking holidays. Since then we have expanded to cover a range of destinations around the world, from the remote Arctic to Indochina. As a company we pride ourselves on our personalised service and pledge to provide each of our clients with an unrivalled tailor-made travel experience.

Our Experience

Gane & Marshall has been established for over 25 years. The experience we have gleaned in that time helps to ensure that we offer a exceptional service to all of our clients. We understand that each traveller is individual with individual requirements. That is why we decided some years ago to offer tailor-made holidays at no extra cost to our clients. In the intervening years we have built up a loyal client base, who travel with us again and again.

Our small team of expert consultants cover a wide range of destinations and experiences, from specialist wildlife holidays to off-the-beaten track walking holidays, and would be delighted to discuss your holiday plans with you.

Your Protection

Our insurances and our ATOL licence (3145) are in place to protect you and your holiday money. All of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays promoted on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information. See also the ATOL website.

Gane and Marshall are one of the few UK tour operators to have in place catastrophe insurance to cover areas which normal client and tour operator insurances avoid, such as ash cloud. Read more.

Michael Gane's earliest memories of travel abroad are of Cuba, first visited as a 7-year old, it's warm climate and the equally warm temperament of the people he met there creating a lasting impression. Further childhood travel experiences - of walking with the Maasai in East Africa, and of trekking in the Himalayas - would instil a love for travel and for discovering new cultures and environments. Today, Mike's special interest is in East Asia, where he has travelled extensively in China, Japan, India and much of Indochina. Mike is also knowledgeable about trekking and climbing in East Africa, including the Rwenzori Mountains, Mt Kenya, and the Simiens.

We are here to help but in order to offer you a suitable itinerary that fits your requirements and most of all your budget, we need to know a few things about you and the type of holiday you are looking for. So please do contact us and provide as much information as possible; we can then communicate by email but if we can have a chat, too, that’s even better! We look forward to hearing from you.
