African Better Business Bureau?

Is there an sort of agency we can contact to check the legitimacy of a tour operator in Africa?

I don't know what countries you are looking to travel to, but if Kenya, you can contact the Kenya Tourist Board. You can check to see if a tour operator is a member and if there are any complaints about the operator. You can do the same thing with the Tanzania Tourist Board or the Tanzania Association of Tour Operators. To my knowledge, there is no equivalent of a Better Business Bureau, but one thing that you can look for is if the tour operator is a member of the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA). If they are, and something goes awry with your trip, you can seek recourse with ASTA.
