I had a great time in Cuba with ElderTreks. The food was a bit repetitive but understood because of the nature of the company. Make sure to set your expectations properly and you will have a great time.

    Known For

    50-Plus Small Group Travel Tours, Europe Small Group Tours, Africa Small Group Tours

    Founded in 1987, ElderTreks is the first major adventure travel company designed specifically for the over 50 demographic. ElderTreks tours span across 100 different countries on all seven continents.   

    What Makes Them Stand Out

    Specifically focused in the over 50 market, travelers on an ElderTreks trip will find themselves among others of a similar age, providing an immediate connection. They offer a large array of trips, all with an effort to remain sustainable and responsible, and extremely knowledgeable tours guides. Exotic, off-the-beaten-path destinations are a specialty, and some trips allow for visits to local schools or orphanages; close contact with local residents is encouraged.

    Who Travels With Them?

    ElderTreks limits its guests to ages 50 and over (exceptions are made for younger companions over 18). The largest number of participants in an ElderTreks land-based group is 16, allowing for plenty of personal attention from your tour guide. Their tours are especially welcoming to singles traveling alone - no single supplements or penalties here (other than sharing a room).

    Where Do They Operate?

    Trips are offered all over the world in a wide variety of locations, including the polar regions. ElderTreks trip options also include expedition-style sea journeys and active hiking trips to places like Europe, Africa, and the Galapagos Islands. They also offer tours to Cuba, and have been for over 20 years - if you're older and wanting to visit Cuba, consider Eldertreks for the vast experience they have operating in Cuba.

    Why Travel With Them?

    For older travelers seeking a fun group of adventurous like-minded peers, a trip with ElderTreks is ideal. They focus on small group sizes and have a variety of trip types to choose, from easy to challenging. ElderTreks prides itself on offering high caliber journeys at affordable prices.

    About Elite Luxury Kenya

    Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

    Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
