I just recently returned from a solo trip to Kenya planned for me by the Africa Adventure Company. AMAZING!! I can't recommend them enough. They listened to what I was interested in seeing/doing and they made it happen. They are so detailed and organized and answered all my questions promptly. They even booked the international flights. AAC handles everything. From the moment I stepped off the plane in Nairobi, I had someone guiding me throughout the entire trip. As a solo traveler, that was extremely important to me. If you want an amazing trip to Africa + peace of mind, look no further than the Africa Adventure Company. Thank you Szilvia + AAC Team!!

Used Africa Adventure Company 25 years ago when they planned our honeymoon to Zambia (walking safari) and Tanzania (Kilimanjaro). They were pretty small company back then. And they were EXCELLENT! Our relatives used them about five years ago. EXCELLENT. We just used them again for our 25th wedding anniversary to South Africa and Botswana. Would recommend them without reservation to anyone.

The Africa Adventure Company did a great job planning our safari to South Africa! They recommended amazing safari camps, and planned everything perfectly including all pick-up, transfers, and Cape Town activities. They provided very detailed itineraries and answered questions quickly. I highly recommend and would use then again

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

About The Africa Adventure Company

The award-winning, Florida-based Africa Adventure Company specializes in offering top-notch wildlife safaris – either with set itineraries or custom-designed -- in southern, central and eastern Africa. 

What Makes Them Stand Out? 

The 30-year-old company is run by a married couple, Mark and Alison Nolting, who have impressive personal experience in the region. Mark has written authoritative safari guides and Alison hails originally from Zimbabwe. They are also active in conservation efforts and giving back to local communities in Africa. 

Who Travels With Them?

Seven out of ten of their customers have traveled with them before, and tend to be adventurous and value-minded (though affluent enough to afford an African safari).  Because they offer private customized tours as well as group tours, they can cater to any age or specific interest.

Where Do They Operate?

In 15 African countries, primarily South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania. Other possible destinations (usually add-ons to safaris) include Madagascar, the Seychelles, Ethiopia, Morocco, and Mozambique. 

How Does It Work?

You can choose from among dozens of pre-set itineraries, modify one to your own specifications, or work with their safari consultants to design your own safari. 

Why Travel With Them? 

Expertise and access. They focus only on Africa with a strong emphasis on wildlife safaris, and have developed a strong network of suppliers in Africa that enables them to hire top guides and book accommodations that offer variety and good value.

About Machu Travel Peru

Founded in 2011, the relatively new Machu Travel Peru is dedicated to providing sustainable travels through Peru.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They create customized itineraries suitable to numerous travel styles. Their guides are passionate and knowledgeable about Peruvian culture and this enthusiasm becomes a part of your tour. You will make your way to Machu Picchu learning of Peruvian history and customs. 

Who Travels With Them?

Travelers interested in learning about Peru from a historical and local perspective. Many of their trips go to Machu Picchu - for which it is advisable to be in generally good shape. 

Where Do They Operate?

They focus in Peru, with emphasis in Cusco and Machu Picchu. 

Why Travel With Them?

Peru is quickly becoming a champion of responsible travel, and Machu Travel Peru is no exception. They work with local rural communities, and are involved in numerous social projects.
