About Us


Emmarosh Travel is a premier tour operator that specializes in leisure travel to destinations in Africa and the Middle East.  We are a US company, and our office is in the State of Illinois, USA. For those familiar with Chicago, we are less than an hour drive from downtown Chicago.

Emmarosh is run by Ms. Emma Assenga, who is the company’s Sr. Managing Director. Formerly, Ms. Assenga had worked for a reputable tour operator, Abercrombie & Kent, USA, for over 21 years. During that time, Ms. Assenga specialized in creating Tailor Made Journeys and sold Small Group journeys to destinations around the world. Her special emphasis is Africa and the Middle East, where she has traveled extensively. During her time with A & K, Ms. Assenga also had an opportunity to serve as A & K’s Manager in their Small Group Team.  

Emma has traveled to over 20 countries around the world. The list includes several countries in Africa, the Middle East, Europe, South America, and North America. Emma’s knowledge of Africa and the Middle East is considered a rarity by many in the travel industry.   

Emma attained her Bachelor of Arts Degree from St. Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. She achieved her Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Indiana University. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to travel.

The goal of Emmarosh Travel is to exceed each guest’s expectations in all areas of travel such as service, knowledge, and operations both here at home, and abroad. We take this mission very seriously. We believe a happy customer will recommend their family and friends to Emmarosh and even better generate a repeat business.
