Across Africa Safari
Travel with us through 6 African countries in what is dubbed as 'Exploring The Mother Continent'. Africa offers many hidden gems with great lakes, crystal blue beaches with pearly white sands, jaw-dropping flora and majestic wildlife and mountains within its borders. Join us as we explore East Africa, renowned as a mountainous paradise, with the best tracking safari to see mountain gorillas, boat tours, deep blue waters of the cold Atlantic in South Africa, large herds of elephants, buffalo, giraffe, and antelope, as well as big cats come to drink, bathe, and play on the riverbanks, the longest river in Africa and much more. On this trip we will travel back to the earliest beginnings of the world.

Should the adventure tour you are joining be re-entering a country, be sure to have a multiple entry visa that enables you to re-enter that country. In some cases visas are available on entry into a country and may be cheaper to do so,
