We first contacted the AAC 2 years before we took our trip. At that time they sent us a great guide book, really the best off the three I read cover to cover, which helped us define the nature of the trip we were looking for. From there we corresponded and they recommended a few trips. One of which, the & Beyond Botswana Explorer Safari, quickly separated itself as the perfect one for us. They helped customize some add ons before and after the safari and made planning this complicated trip a breeze. They kept in touch during the months leading up to the trip meeting us know what we should be doing to prepare. They even provided great advice on how to budget for items like tipping, border crossing, park fees, and curious. We followed their advice during the trip and we breezed through border crossings while other travellers got hung up because they were not prepared. The trip itself was settled and they had someone on hand every step of the way to make sure it went smoothly. The safari itself was a dream and blew away our very high expectations. We will be using them again the next time we go to Africa.

My wife and I have done four Safaris in Africa including two Safaris with The Africa Adventure Company,(TAAC). The first was in 2014 in Tanzania where the highlight was the Wildebeest migration and Mara River crossing followed by the Gorillas in Rwanda, a one in a lifetime experience with those gentle gorillas. Then in 2016 in Tanzania (Serengeti again that has so many faces) and Zimbabwe with the extraordinary stay at Vundu Camp in Mana Pools. Our experiences were outstanding due to the careful planning on Kyle and staff at TAAC. There were no bad surprises only good ones. I would recommend It as we had great discussions with Kyle and Alison, all was perfect. I have posted reviews of the Places that we stayed at at Trip Advisor.

The trip was one of the best trips we've done. Machu travel did a great job from logistics on airport, bus transfers, hotels are in the center of town, excursions were very organized, staff were there for us to take care of our needs, tour guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you!

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.
