Nic Polenakis is a premier Southern African guide who spends much of his year exclusively guiding for the Africa Adventure Company on private safaris. Nic was selected by National Geographic Traveler as one of the “10 Great Tour Guides Who Can Transform Your Trip” for 2011.
The biggest factor in our rave review is Nic Polenakis. His skills as a safari guide are without equal, as is his love for the wildlife and the land. How do we describe tracking three lions, then having them walk out of the bush right in front of our vehicle? Or watching dozens of elephants of all ages drink, play and relax at waterholes? I could keep going on - every hour was a new adventure - but you get the idea. In addition to the extraordinary wildlife viewing, Nic's encyclopedic knowledge of the wildlife and his extraordinary ability to communicate (he's a real "people person" as well as wildlife expert) added immeasurably to the experience.Read More

We're already thinking about our next trip.Read More
