Welcome to AraToko Travel GmbH

We are a small, owner-managed travel agency specialized in individual travel to South Africa, Namibia and Costa Rica.

We do not offer catalogues and glossy brochures, but passionate enthusiasm for travelling, open ears for your wishes and a personal and genuine consultation!

If travel groups are a horror to you and you would like to discover the beautiful corners off the beaten track, you have come to the right place! Who knows, maybe you will soon discover the Macaw ("Ara") or the Hornbill ("Toko"), the birds from our logo, in their natural habitat ;-)


From our own experience we know how difficult and time-consuming the planning and organisation of a trip can be if you want to be on the move individually and away from "all inclusive".

AraToko Travel offers you support according to your wishes - with us there are no travel catalogues and ready-made packages, but travel experience, background knowledge and passionate enthusiasm for southern Africa and Costa Rica.

For relaxed, truly individual travels!

Travel Consulting

Are you one of those people who prefer to organise their holidays themselves, but still have unanswered questions regarding destination, route, accommodation or transport? We would be happy to share our know-how with you and help you with a consultation.

We tell you what is practicable, what makes sense and what you better do avoid - totally open and honest!

The consultation takes place at a jointly agreed place.

Price CHF 100.- (duration approx. 1 hour)
Additional effort or additional date: CHF 60.- per hour
(travel costs may apply for away appointments)


After consultation, we also gladly book rental vehicles and accommodation for you.


Contact us by telephone, e-mail or contact form to arrange a consultation appointment. We are mobile and flexible! ;-)

Rental car "all-inclusive"

With the link in the button you can also book your rental car directly yourself.
In cooperation with Sunnycars we provide attractive offers worldwide and all-inclusive: No need to deal with the small print.
