The award-winning travel outfitter, Africa Adventure Company has announced new trips for 2014, reflecting the growing demand for adventurous and active travel experiences. The leading Africa specialist known for its extensive portfolio of more than 75 safari trips to over 14 African countries is offering a diversity of options for discovering Africa, from tracking rare wildlife by foot in the heart of Zimbabwe to spotting the largest surviving lemurs in Madagascar’s rainforest.
There will also be many new camp openings incorporated into the tours, including the Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp to open this coming August that will be included in the Africa Adventure Company’s 12-Day Wings over Namibia flying safari. For the first time, previously restricted forays into the Hoanib floodplains will be undertaken, a chance to witness a series of oases in the middle of the shifting Namib Desert.
Another exclusive expedition is the 7-Day Adventurer Safari to Zimbabwe and Botswana which offers intimate photographic expeditions in small groups with private guides and safari vehicles. Visitors will stay exclusively in luxury mobile Under Canvas camps in each area, waking with the sunrise and exploring until sunset. Tracking elephant, rhino, and lion by foot and boating on the Chobe River permit exceptional explorations of wildlife in elephant country.
More photographic opportunities and game viewing is offered on the 12-Day Under Tanzanian Skies Safari, featuring four days of game viewing in the Serengeti plains with their top naturalist guides. Photographic opportunities include a visit to Lake Manyara National Park, famed for its tree climbing lions that sleep amongst acacia trees. From visiting local Maasai villages in the foothills of Kilimanjaro to descending 2,000 feet into the Ngorongoro Crater, clients will enjoy the exclusivity and expert guiding that distinguishes this small group safari.
Africa Adventure Company offers a number of great expeditions for the entire family including the Family Adventure to Zimbabwe. Families will have the opportunity to experience staying at Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge, located on the very edge of the mighty Zambezi River where Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia converge.
