We are excited to announce that this signature Africa Adventure Company safari was selected in National Geographic Traveler Magazine's "50 Tours of a Lifetime as "Walk Among Elephants". We personally know your guides Nic Polenakis, Dave Carsons and Nick Murray who are leading the trips. The guides are some of the best in Africa and will be a highlight of the trip! We have combined the active game viewing ventures of walking in Northern and southeastern Hwange and canoeing, walking and game drives in Mana Pools. This safari operates as an exclusive group with up to 6 persons per departure. Accommodations are a combination of first class, private mobile tents and permanent tented camps in the parks.
As a trip outfitter we offer this Signature Group departure for up to 5-6 guests.
