Graduation Adventures

April 16, 2012  By: Gretchen

Do you have a soon-to-be graduate in your household?  Consider recognizing their achievement with a family trip.  It’s a great way to spend some meaningful time together without the distractions of the everyday and can be even more special if your grad is off to a ‘new life’ in college or a new city.

We have something for every family.  Maybe you’d like an active safari but would enjoy time together at the beach as a family, too.  Malawi Surf and Turf is just the ticket; you’ll have three days in Liwonde National Park filled with lots of activities – game drives, boat trips on the Shire River, nature walks and bike riding.  From there, you head to beautiful Lake Malawi with its relaxed pace and crystalline waters.  You can kayak, snorkel or even scuba dive or just relax and enjoy each other’s company.

Do you have a family tradition of walks or hikes together?  Consider the Zambia Walking Safari.  Zambia is considered the ‘birthplace of the walking safari’, so there’s no better place to get off the beaten path and back in touch with nature.  On this trip, you’ll have eleven days together to explore South Luangwa National Park on foot to learn its secrets and see its game in ways few travelers imagine.  To ice the cake, you’ll end the trip in Victoria Falls to share a visit to one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Does your family love golf?  Then journey to South Africa and enjoy its world class courses as well as the local scenery, cuisine and activities before heading of on safari.  Our South Africa Golf and Game itinerary has it all!

What are your family’s favorite things to do together?  We have dozens more itineraries to inspire you and can customize a trip to fit your dreams and that you and your grad will remember for a lifetime.  Just call and we’ll take care of the rest.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
