Great for: Wildlife enthusiasts and Boomers seeking adventure. Don’t let the name “Eldertreks” put you off – it was the first adventure travel company designed just for people 50 and older (dating from 1987), though companions 18 and over can join in. Maximum group size is 16, lodgings come with private bathrooms, contact with local people is encouraged, and itineraries veer off the beaten path. This extensive safari is one of them, visiting game reserves in three lesser-visited countries as well as Victoria Falls and several historical and cultural sites.
