Africa Adventure Consultants’ travelers the Steimel family traveled for three weeks over the Christmas holiday. Jean, David and their two sons (ages 11 and 14) spent two of those weeks on safari in Tanzania followed by one week relaxing on the beach in Zanzibar. They explored Tarangire National Park with its beautiful scenery and amazing elephants; Lake Manyara National Park, known for its tree-climbing lions and incredible bird life; discovered a more off-the-beaten-path side of Tanzania with cultural tours and forest hikes; then visited the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater and Olduvai Gorge along with the majestic Serengeti.
Their guide Alfred was “a true passionate professional with extensive pride in his work and his country.” He was able to show them all of the wildlife they could dream of seeing as well as astounding endless landscapes.
A few highlights from their safari include…
“All the lodges provided exceptional service making sure all our needs were met. The food was plentiful and delicious and the accommodations as comfortable as they were beautiful.
Our family will never forget this holiday together. It was a fantasy come true in so many ways. We could simply do the typical Christmas gift exchange but instead decided to create memories as our gift and we’re so glad that we did. This was a trip of a lifetime.”
– J. Steimel
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?
