Global March for Elephants and Rhinosglobal march 2015

Almost everyone is aware that world-wide elephant and rhino populations are under extreme threat due to poaching. Without immediate and concerted action around the world, within our lifetime we will lose these majestic creatures forever. On October 3 and 4, people throughout the world will march with one voice stating that this cannot happen. In over 40 cities in the United States alone, people will unite in solidarity and support for preservation efforts across the globe. Visit the Global March website for information about a march in a city near you.

AfricAid is an amazing nonprofit based in Denver and Tanzania that supports girls’ education in Africa, in order to provide young women with the opportunity to transform their own lives and the futures of their communities. We at Africa Adventure Consultants have been long-time supporters of this wonderful organization. On October 3, 2015, AfricAid is hosting their annual Art and Soul gala at Denver’s Red Line Gallery. It’s an evening filled with music, refreshments and inspiring stories of the successes of the wonderful young women supported by AfricAid’s work. We hope those local to Colorado can join us for this truly uplifting event. More information can be found here.

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.
