The agents will be featured in the September issue of Travel + Leisure, available on newsstands and online now at

Since 2001, Redding has co-owned Africa Adventure Consultants, an award-winning tour operator specializing in customized luxury and adventure safaris to top destinations in East and Southern Africa, including Tanzania, Botswana, South Africa and 10 other countries. Prior to founding Africa Adventure Consultants, Redding was a safari guide and camp manager in Tanzania.

Redding enjoys working with well-traveled clients to help them design their dream safaris, whether they are looking for traditional photo safaris, active adventures, family adventures, honeymoons or cultural expeditions. He particularly enjoys helping multi-generational families (with grandparents, parents and kids) plan their African adventures.

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.
