We have some incredibly exciting news! For the first time, Alison Nolting has been recognized as one of Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Travel Specialists!

She joins her husband Mark on this prestigious list. This makes The Africa Adventure company one of the few Africa-specialized tour operators with more than one specialist on this list – not to mention the only married couple!

Mark and Alison have shared a strong bond with both each other and Africa for many years. Alison joined Mark shortly after he founded the Africa Adventure Company. Their success is a major reason why we’ve been able to celebrate our 35th anniversary this year. In addition, it’s why we know we’ll overcome this unprecedented time in our industry.

As we specialize ONLY in Africa, our high level of personal service will ensure a safari experience matched to your style of travel and expectations. All in all, we appreciate your interest in The Africa Adventure Company and look forward to having you on safari!

To commemorate this great occasion, here’s a collection of photos of the two of them on safari. After all, it’s only appropriate, considering they met for the first time while on safari!
