Ebola Update: Why You Should Book a Safari

Ebola Update: Why should you book a safari to East Africa even with the Ebola outbreak in West Africa?African Adventures 075

1. To date, there is no Ebola in East or Southern Africa.

2. Our destination countries have very strict immigration policies for impacted countries and people.

3. Our destination countries have better healthcare systems and more resources to deal with a potential outbreak.

4. Our destinations are typically more than 3,000 miles from the affected countries in West Africa.

5. It helps the people in Africa at a time when some are losing crucial income due to decreased tourism.

6. It helps the wildlife in Africa. Visitor dollars are the primary source of funding for many of the major parks in Africa.

7. Space is limited and forward bookings are already good: When the situation stabilizes and the outbreak contained, more people will start to book their safaris. By then, it may be too late to get space at the best camps and lodges.

8. Africa Adventure Consultants is offering a $500 booking bonus for safaris confirmed with deposit before December 31, 2015

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.
