What would your dream trip be like?

Would you spend all your time game viewing? Do you want to spend the extra time and effort to get to places others don’t often visit? Would you rather be hiking, biking and rafting or relaxing on the beach? Do you want luxury or basic accommodations ? What special interests or needs do you have? Check out our activities or safari types for more information.

How many days total do you have for your adventure?

Subtract your travel time, usually two days to and from Africa. Now you have the number of days you have to play with.

Do you have specific dates or a more open schedule?

Who do you want to travel with?

With friends? With family? With others with similar interests like photography or hiking?

LET OUR JOURNEY SPECIALISTS HELP CREATE YOUR TRIP OF A LIFETIME

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.
