We had the most remarkable time in Tanzania with Kent Redding, upon the recommendation of a friend that had been on safari the previous summer. When traveling in Africa, you want to know that someone understands your needs. Let me tell you, Kent thought of everything and saw us through mishaps (loss of luggage) and multiple flights, etc., not to mention the most amazing trip we have ever experienced and he is an absolute blast, to boot! He is not only knowledgeable of the African flora, fauna and cultures, he is as enthusiastic as we are about this magnificent place. We have traveled all over the world and must say this was our most memorable trip and far exceeded our expectations. We cannot thank Africa Adventure Consultants enough.

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.
