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.

My husband and I used Africa Adventurer Company to book our honeymoon and we could not have been happier. We wanted to do a safari in the Serengeti, spend time beachside in Zanzibar and go gorilla trekking in Rwanda and they made it all happen. We wanted adventure, romance and fun and we got it all. They didn't have any prepackaged trips set up like this but I told them how much time we had and what we wanted to do and they got it done. Everything worked out perfect. Our flights, transportation, lodging, food (I'm vegan and my husband is vegetarian) were all set up for us and we couldn't have asked for anything more. It was a stressful time at work for me and I was planning the wedding as well and Africa Adventure Company made planning everything so easy. It was an incredible trip that we'll remember for a lifetime. All of our guides were extremely knowledgeable and professionals, our lodges, hotels and camps were amazing, I think my favorite was the Ngorongoro Farm House. Everything was perfect. Thank you Africa Adventure company and thank you Elena!

What can I say? Simply spectacular! East Africa, September 2016. Three weeks. Nairobi, Amboseli, Taragnire, Ngorongoro, southern Serengeti, northern Serengeti, Kigali, Volcanoes National Park (gorillas). AAC arranged everything, and it went like clockwork. First class all the way. Kyle Witten is the best! He listened carefully and tailored the perfect adventure. Mark Nolting has created something magical, where dreams really do come true
