Which agencies use Origins as local operator?

Planning a trip next year and looking to get quotes. We know we want Origins as our in country operator since we want a specific guide we have had in past trips. Could you well seasoned folks let me know which agencies use Origins for their ground operator??

Thanks to all!

Origins will direct you to affiliated agents. The Africa Adventure Company in Ft. Lauderdale, FL uses them.

Did your guide's name start with "A"? He was our guide when we went with them.

No it did not. They have a lot of guides working for them though. We had two and they were both wonderful. We would like to use them again but perhaps want to use a different booking agent.

If you are experienced and it looks like a simple booking then Origins will often give you a direct quote, bypassing their agents. This is what we did in Jan 2008, booking direct with the owner, Steve. All we had to do on our own was book our air travel to Nairobi, Origins did the rest.

Send them an email and see what they say.
