We are thrilled to announce that AAC President Kent Redding has been named to the Travel + Leisure 2014 A-List, its annual editors’ choice of the best travel advisors in the business.
Every year, Travel + Leisure editors review hundreds of applications to produce this highly selective list. The awards have been published in the September 2014 issue, on newsstands now, and on travelandleisure.com.
“I’m honored to be named to Travel + Leisure’s A-List, especially because of the important role the brand plays in the travel media,” said Redding. “Even with all of today’s technological advances, nothing beats working with a real person with first-hand knowledge of travel to Africa and experience planning African safaris.”
Redding enjoys working with clients to help them design their dream safaris, from traditional photo safaris to active adventures which often take guests well off the beaten path. He predicts growth in several areas of safari travel, including more families (including multi-generational families with grandparents, parents and kids) going on safari, and also more safaris designed around special occasions such as birthdays, graduations and anniversaries.
“We are also seeing more demand for special interest trips such as photographers safaris that appeal to people who prefer to see the world from behind the camera, and beer safaris which appeal to hops fans,” said Redding. “We are excited to help travelers with any of their special interests.”
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.
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.
We know it can be hard to narrow down what to do on vacation, especially with the wealth of choices that are available on the African continent. That’s why we have created an array of sample itineraries to inspire your travel. Browse through them – you’ll find everything from family safaris to honeymoons to Kilimanjaro climbs – and find the places and activities that excite you. From there, you can contact a Journey Specialist to start the process of crafting a customized safari just for you!
