Alan planned a first-rate trip for me and my family and it was an experience of a lifetime. Alan told us that we would fall in love with Africa and the trip actually exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Infinite Safari Adventures if you have a desire to see Africa.

We met Alan at the Chicago Travel and Adventure Show many months ago when we were starting to think about booking a trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. He was very knowledgable and encouraging about our ability to accomplish the trek. We did end up booking our trip through Infinite Safaris and Alan was incredibly responsive the whole time after we booked and before we left - he addressed all of my questions and concerns quickly and thoroughly.

From when we arrived in Africa to when we left we felt so well cared for by all the staff and drivers on the ground. All of our logistics went smoothly. Our hotel accommodations were comfortable and charming. The food across the board was wonderful.

Our experience on the mountain was a highlight of our lives. We trusted our guide and staff completely and they took such good care of us. The food was plentiful and good - even with our low appetites due to the altitude. We were lucky with good weather for our climb, but really it was our guides Julius and Oforo and the porters and cook that made our experience comfortable and positive. Julius was encouraging, kind, and fun to be around. We realized our dream of summiting the mountain with their help.

The hotel on Zanzibar was really unique and wonderful - it was a real treat after the physical challenge of the mountain.

Our experience could not have been better, and we would recommend Infinite Safari Adventures for travel in Africa without hesitation.

Alan is top notch. He is organized, informed, and will take his time to put together a trip that YOU want to go on. He does not offer cookie cutter trips. Alan and I had a nice in-person chat, about our budget and all the different places that my Dad and I wanted to visit. After the meeting, Alan put together an itinerary and my Dad and I got the trip of a lifetime.

My trip was focused on southern Africa. We went to Victoria Falls and stayed at a beautiful lodge. I even got to swim in the Angel's Pool by the edge of the Falls! We then went to Namibia to visit Cheetah Conservation Fund where Alan is a Trustee! It was amazing to see the conservation work and meet Dr. Laurie Marker. We then went to Sabi Sands (next to Kruger) and stayed at two gorgeous lodges. We saw 5 leopards, 2 lion prides, experienced a hippo charging at our vehicle, watched countless elephants, impalas, kudu,buffalo and even baby rhinos. The wildlife viewing at Sabi Sands was amazing. We ended our trip in Cape Town where Alan organized a wonderful 4 day tour (Robben Island, Table Mountain, Cape of Good Hope & Wine Country) staying at the wonderful Waterfront. We felt safe and taken care of every step of the way. We experienced zero mishaps and got all the important information in our hands before we left for the trip.

Pricing: I would say you get what you pay for. Why fly so far and not get the best trip that you can get? Alan's services are well worth it because he does not cut corners and he selects really great ground operators and hotels/lodges for us. He is always there to answer questions/provide information/squash trip jitters and so are his local contacts.

I honestly cannot recommend Alan enough. He helped my Dad and myself experience South Africa together. We got the best service, meet wonderful people, and stayed at amazing places. Everything was organized and taken care of. We had an absolutely marvelous time. Thank you for giving us our trip of a lifetime!

I was very impressed with the Family Adventure company in terms of the holiday delivered which was exceptional. The booking and pre-holiday experience was fine although it would be better to have a specific contact to email rather than just to phone the general number with queries.

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective, FAC were not as welcoming. Another company we have travelled with sent a welcome pack with a travelling companion (soft toy) and activities to do while travelling. When on the holiday this company also catered more for families needs e.g. more frequent stops when travelling for food and toilets, without parents having to ask. The stops were also at more sensible times e.g. making sure there was a stop at lunch time (12.30ish), rather than early afternoon (1.30 onwards). Children (and adults) get irritable if they've not eaten making the journey more stressful.

      About The Family Adventure Company

      Founded two decades ago and based in the UK, The Family Adventure Company specializes in small group family adventure vacations. The company is now part of the global adventure travel operator Intrepid Travel, and trips are offered through Intrepid as well, allowing them to greatly expand their range.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      With more than 20 years’ experience, The Family Adventure Company helped pioneer the concept of small-group adventure travel for families with young children. Activities are wide-ranging, from river rafting and kayaking to cycling, sailing, camping, and wildlife viewing, all geared to the ages and interests of the family travelers.

      Who Travels With Them?

      A wide variety of families, including solo-parent, single-child, multi-generational families -- parents, children, and grandparents traveling together -- and families with teenagers. The latter have dedicated trips of special interest to teens.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Much of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

      How Does it Work?

      No matter where you travel, The Family Adventure Company provides an English-speaking, family-friendly local leader. Lodging, transportation and activities are also included. Tours typically consist of three or four families with kids of similar ages or interests. (You can also put together your own trip with just your family or other families you’re friendly with.) Children 14 and under get a ten percent discount off adult prices; large families (over two kids) get another price break.

      Why Travel With Them?

      The award winning company offers a wide range of trips for a wide variety of families. Because they only cater to families, they know what kids like – and as any parent can tell you, nothing is more disastrous than a family tour not geared in any way to kids. The company also supports responsible and sustainable travel practices and gives back to local communities.
