Our guides

Africa has gone through its own evolution of eco-conservation and for over 25 years, The Africa Adventure Co.(AAC) has partnered and developed key relationships with local ground operators and guides, camps and lodges, and communities that see the merits of low-impact travel.

We strive to deliver the right trip for your wildlife experience of a lifetime, to ensure that our committment to sustainable tourism and the long-term conservation of habitats will continue to be meaningful. Together we support research and field work, private concessions that have partnerships with local communities, and accommodations with low utilization of energy resources.

Mark and Alison and their loyal staff have met and established key partnerships with many of your guides, so once on the ground you are always in excellent hands and you will immediately feel our extended-family attention. These guides know how hard we work to really personalize your safari and the extra mile we have gone to service your travel arrangements. They in turn, offer the very best as they draw you into their natural world in remarkable ways.
