Africa at the Oscars

Congratulations to the makers of Virunga, an award-winning film about the true story about a group of brave people risking their lives to build a better future in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is a powerful combination of investigative journalism and nature documentary, and was nominated for an Oscar for Documentary Feature in 2015.

You can see the gorillas that these brave people protect in neighboring Uganda and Rwanda.Rwanda and Uganda Gorillas Safari

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.
