About The Africa Adventure Company

The Africa Adventure Company (AAC) is headed up by Mark and Alison Nolting.

Mark has spent over 25 years exploring and researching the African continent as the author of Africa's Top Wildlife Countries, an excellent guide book in which Mark chronicles every aspect of the safari experience. He is also writes the all-in-one book to take on safari, African Safari Journal, a wildlife guide with illustrations, maps, diary pages, and phrases.

Alison was born and raised in Zimbabwe and spent many years managing safari camps before joining Mark 20 years ago. She thrives in the development of refreshingly new safari programs for our repeat AAC travelers as well as working with sponsorship in the community and introducing volunteer programs.  

Together with their wonderful office staff,  they offer the highest level of expertise for arranging low-impact and personalized travel to over 14 countries in Africa. They continue to stay ahead of the herds with professional and dedicated consultants who strive to offer outstanding guidance on trip planning. As they look to the future, the Africa Adventure Company will continue to do what it has done best! Focus on small groups and independent travelers, promote camps that are symbiotic with nature and the community, and offer exquisite game viewing with top notch guides. They look forward to the continuing tradition of "safari for a lifetime"!
