Close Protection for Africa
“A Specialist Close Protection Service supported by solid intelligence”
The continent of Africa is a vast and beautiful place, much of it unspoilt, Africa does however have its security issues and unstable political climate.
Our Close Protection Services in Africa are tailored for each region and country, taking into account not only security considerations but the whole political sub-picture, plus of course, internal and external terror threats and risks.
Intelligent Protection International Limited offers in partnership with our sister company, International Intelligence Limited, a bespoke security and intelligence service for those companies wishing to visit, or to carry out business operations in Africa.
Africa is rich in natural resources and with many of its countries in close proximity to Europe, it does attract the attention of prospectors and investors. The security, economic and political situation in much of Africa, is such that Governments worldwide advise against all but essential travel in much of the continent.
Our services include:

Threat and Risk
There are a number of terrorist groups operating in Africa and they can be a major threat to business operations and personnel in the region.
Al Qaeda in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb (AQ-M), operates and recruits in many countries to the North West. Over the years, there have been a number of incidents of acts of terrorism, both “general” and targeted towards “western” interests and personnel in Africa.
More general security threats come from organised crime and gangs, some linked to terrorist groups, some not. Intelligent Protection International Limited provides free risk reports to aid our Clients and our own private security operations.
