Africa Safari Adventure Tours

Explore Africa, the continent of discoveries, on a safari & hiking adventure

When you think about Africa, you probably think of the Sahara, an array of safaris and endless stretches of unspoiled bush inhabited by elephants and lions. You're right, but it's also much more than that: vibrant cities by the coast, impressive mountain ranges, lush rainforests, thundering waterfalls... And that's not all, there's the cultural scene, amazing cuisine, and eventful history - every aspect as special as the last.

Africa Travel FAQs

Do you recommend buying travel insurance?

As an Active Adventures traveller, It’s essential you take out travel insurance to cover the likes of personal injury, medical expenses, trip cancellation for your travel with us. Please head to our Travel Insurance page for more in-depth information and insurance provider options. It’s also important to check your insurance covers all the activities you’ll be partaking in, in case you’re travelling to altitude or looking at extreme sports.

Can you help me find flights to Africa?

We recommend booking your flights through our preferred travel partner – Fuzion Travel. They’re our experienced hand-picked experts in travel, passionate about what they do, and will tailor-make your flight itinerary to match your Active Adventures tour. Get in touch with them directly by email – [email protected] fuziontravel.co.nz or on +1-833-244-5886. Let them know your preferred travel plans, including any stopovers or extra nights’ accommodation, and they’ll put everything in place for you. They offer a total travel solution and five star service that you’ll want to tell your friends about!

Do you charge a forced single supplement if I'm a solo traveller?

We don’t believe in charging you extra for travelling alone and we have lots of single travellers on our trips. There’s no forced single supplement if you don’t mind sharing a room (you might even get a room to yourself sometimes). If you prefer not to share a room at all, you can upgrade to a single room, if one is available, though our rooming is limited in Africa so best to get in fast!

 

How many people are there on each of your Africa trips?

We generally take up to 14 people per trip, although this can vary, and all our trips have at least two of our guides to look after you (apart from the occasions we have a small group). We have found that our trips tend to attract a particular kind of person and many people have commented that the social scene was one of the highlights of their trip!

Do I need to speak the local language?

A little would be helpful, especially on arrival and for ordering food in restaurants, but it's certainly not required. English is spoken in most hotels, airports and tourist areas though not everywhere. Our local guides are all fluent native speakers so if you don't have time to learn a little before arrival you don't have to worry... they will take care of everything.

How safe is it to go on a Safari?

From a wildlife persepctive, it’s important to follow the below guidelines as you’re likely to encounter animals on foot or in water:

  • On all game activities (game drives, mokoro, boating and on foot) follow the instructions of the guides at all times.
  • Being quiet is not only important from a safety point ofview, but also to have the best possible experience for all guests.
  • The camps are unfenced meaning that animals might walk through at any time (especially at night) so guests to be aware and take caution.
  • In the camps the guides will always accompany guests to their tents/rooms after dark.
  • Never approach any animal and should you encounter one, stand your ground and never run
