Dear Fellow Travelers,
When I started Africa Adventure Consultants in 2001, I never thought we’d be celebrating our 19th anniversary like this. My heart goes out to everyone affected by COVID-19. As a company, we are taking the situation seriously and are following guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Our staff members have transitioned to working remotely and I am encouraging all to engage in social distancing to help prevent more widespread impact of the virus.
The travel industry has faced big challenges in the past and has come through them successfully. We are a resilient community facing this together. We are working together with our partners on the ground in Africa and around the world for creative solutions. We have already been in touch with many clients about postponing upcoming travel plans or altering their travel plans as necessary. We’ll continue to reach out to our travelers as we have updates.
You may be asking yourself what you can do now. We recommend you get your information from expert sources, such as the CDC and WHO, and follow the guidelines they’ve set forth. Reminiscing on past travel experiences also helps me focus on the positive. To fight the onset of cabin fever, I’ve recently spent time with my family recounting stories from our chimp trekking in Mahale last year, our exploration of South Africa when our boys were younger and swimming with sharks and seals in the Galapagos Islands. We’ve also been talking about where we want to go when it’s safe and appropriate to do so. Our travel plans have been delayed, but I think very soon it will be the time to book our next adventure in Africa and beyond before everyone else decides to do the same!
President, Africa Adventure Consultants
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? 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.
We know it can be hard to narrow down what to do on vacation, especially with the wealth of choices that are available on the African continent. That’s why we have created an array of sample itineraries to inspire your travel. Browse through them – you’ll find everything from family safaris to honeymoons to Kilimanjaro climbs – and find the places and activities that excite you. From there, you can contact a Journey Specialist to start the process of crafting a customized safari just for you!
