Celebrating our 30 Years


What a milestone! The Africa Adventure Company kicked off celebrating our 30th anniversary early this year by attending several travel shows, meeting up with many past clients to share their countless adventures and stories.


I was able to express my passion in an interview with Wall Street Journal in New York where I discussed our commitment to creating ecotourism trips to Africa that help support important conservation efforts to protect wildlife.


We share in your excitement creating tailor made vacation experiences with top notch guides for small groups and independent travelers, including camps that are symbiotic with nature and their communities.


Enjoy viewing our various chapters in the road traveled thus far on our 30 Year Timeline!




We dazzled at our 30th Anniversary


The Africa Adventure Company celebrated our actual 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.

Bad Thing

Around the world, our planet is experiencing

the effects of El Nino, including drought in

many countries. The first thought is always:

what will happen to the wildlife in times of

drought? And is it always a bad thing? Map
