Why Choose Africa Adventure Consultants?

We are a Denver-based safari company with expert Journey Specialists who organize exclusive, custom, award-winning safari adventures throughout Africa. We also curate adventures in complimentary destinations outside of Africa.

Our Expertise

We are known for our personalized trips, each tailored to individual travelers. We pride ourselves on our expertise and passion for our destinations and use that knowledge to craft the best experience for you. Owners Kent Redding and Kelly McElroy lived and worked in Africa for 3.5 years where Kent managed a bush camp and guided safaris. We work with a range of trusted partners across the continent, allowing us to provide objective advice on itineraries, accommodations and activities. We stay up to date on our product knowledge by traveling to Africa many times a year and welcoming our African partners and suppliers to our office regularly for product training.

Award-winning Safaris

We have been recognized with myriad industry awards, including as one of the Best Travel Specialists in the World by Conde Nast Traveler and as one of the World’s Best Safari Outfitters for five years by Travel + Leisure – click here to check out some of the best accolades in the business.

Our Safari Planning Process

During the planning process, our expert Journey Specialists work directly with you to incorporate your wishes and travel style into your customized safari. You will also be paired with a Safari Concierge who can answer any questions you may have before or during your trip – from what to pack to restaurant recommendations in Cape Town, to plan every aspect of your safari – from transfers and airport meet and greets to special activities such as a hot air balloon safari, and ensure all details are taken care of. Our 24 x 7 support means that you have access to one of our dedicated employees in the US or Africa to assist with any last-minute changes or to help during a travel disruption, changing travel conditions or in an emergency. We are licensed and insured in the United States giving you strong consumer protection for your travel purchase.

Our Guides

During your travels, you will be treated to a safari with some of the best guides on the African continent. The knowledge and passion of a guide is what makes an African safari extra special and we pride ourselves on our exceptional guides. They help travelers understand and interpret nature and the roles that each of the animals, insects and flora play in an ecosystem. They decode animal behavior, giving context and meaning to what you see while on safari.

At Africa Adventure Consultants, we offer the best guiding around. Our guides are highly skilled, inspirational people that take travelers’ experiences to the next level. They are experts in conservation, culture, history, and the natural environment, and they have a gift in sharing their knowledge with their guests.

Giving Back

When you travel with AAC, we want your trip to make a difference. Travel can have a positive impact on the places we visit and the people that live there. We have a deep connection with the destinations we send our travelers to and care about the people and wildlife that call them home. That’s why we donate $25 per person per trip to one of our hand-selected, preferred charities that help people and animals in Africa. We also support various fundraisers, causes and charities on a case by case basis.

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.
