Every year we look forward to the latest “Top 100 Hotels” list in Conde Nast and Travel+Leisure to see if our favorite exclusive camps and lodges have been discovered by other travelers. We have still found a few hidden gems for our clients! Below are some of our recommendations to explore in 2017 where we have also taken into consideration feedback from our recent client trip reports.


Travel + Leisure's - A-List 2016 - Mark Nolting

Travel + Leisure's 15th annual A-List in 2016 showcases the best specialists in the travel business—the people who have firsthand knowledge of destinations on the rise, can get you into sold-out hotels, and provide the best insider travel tips.







We are thrilled and honored that Mark Nolting remains on the list once again for the 8th year in a row with his specialties of East and Southern Africa for multi-generational families.

African Safari Field Guide, 7th Edition - NEW!

African Safari Field Guide, 7th Edition - NEW!

Mark Nolting has completely revised and updated The African Safari Field Guide.  The new edition is hot off the press and is an absolute must to take on safari. This is a  7-BOOKS-IN-ONE journal!
All our AAC guests receive a complimentary copy for their safari travels.




The African Safari Journal & Field Guide is the perfect book to take on safari as it is a wildlife guide, trip organizer, phrase book, safari diary, map directory and wildlife checklist, all in one! And because many safariers have strict baggage limits, this 7-BOOKS-IN-ONE journal becomes even more valuable because it features all the information a traveler to Africa is going to need. It puts key safari information at the reader's fingertips and allows them to record unforgettable memories of their African adventure.

We Dazzled at our 30th anniversary celebration!!

The Africa Adventure Company celebrated our 30th Anniversary on March 17th. Surrounded by 200 wonderful staff, friends and clients, we enjoyed South African wines and Kenyan beer on the patio of the Cinema Paradiso as we reminisced about past safaris and upcoming adventures. The highlight of the night was viewing the movie Vanishing Kings – Lions of the Namib, introduced by guest speaker, James Currie with his perfected lion roars! We want to thank all those who joined us!
