After meeting Quinton in Capetown for an incredible day trip in 2018 for a day trip to Stellenbosch wine country and listening to his adventures in East Africa, we immediately put that trip on a shortlist of places to visit in the near future.
So, in the lifting stages of the pandemic, in early 2021, we knew exactly who to reach out to, to FINALLY make this trip happen! Africa Explore Safaris helped us to create our dream trip to Kenya and Tanzania in Sep/Oct 2021. Words can't even explain how magical/ memorable this trip was, a total of 21 days on a private safari. From the designing stage of our dream trip (whatever we wanted, they worked into the schedule) and all throughout the trip itself, Africa Explore Safaris was always just a phone call away and eager to help us however they could.
Especially nice to have a calming/committed voice when you get to the airport and find out the airlines canceled your flight. 🙃 That was our only "issue" on the trip, after that it was smooth and INCREDIBLE sailing the entire way. Both our local guides (1 in each country) were wonderful! Very knowledgeable men with a clear passion for sharing their AMAZING countries with travelers).
Thank you to Quinton and Abby for making this bucket list dream come true! We look forward to traveling to more parts of that beautiful continent in the future. Still need to see those sharks in Gansbaai and get back for whale season in Hermanus! 😉
Just a quick note about the pandemic, since it's on the forefront of many traveller's minds right now. From the US we had to provide a negative PCR test within 3 days of travel (US requirement for most international travel). In Kenya we tested again to be allowed into Tanzania and the same when leaving Tanzania to get back home. These tests were EASY! Quick testing sites at a camp in Serengeti, Tanzania and in Kenya they used a mobile service and the guy actually got in a hazmat suit in our van to perform the test. We got a kick out of that. Both countries had social distancing mandates still in place and left the wearing of masks up to the individual businesses. Everywhere we went staff were wearing masks and in crowded public areas of the camps, we were asked to wear masks when not eating/drinking. We are very careful still, even in our home in Arizona, so none of those was an inconvenience to us. Both countries appear to really care about the safety and wellbeing of tourists and members of the communities we were visiting ... also, I should mention now is a GREAT time to go on safari. 18 months ago the world shut down and the consensus from the locals in each country was that the animals appeared to be less shy around safari vehicles because of it. When you have an expert guide in your truck with almost 20 years of experience who's never seen a leopard in Aberdare and we had 1 just casually stroll down the road towards us. In Tanzania our guide with over 15 years of experience never saw a cheetah kill in person, we witnessed a mom hunt for her 3 cubs right in front of us (like we weren't even there). Both countries had elephants walking right up to our truck basically unbothered, etc.
Our animal experiences were OUT of this world! DON'T LET THE PANDEMIC STOP YOU FROM GOING TO AFRICA. It's open and as magical as you always imagined it to be! 💜
Our Safari was the best experience I have ever had. My whole family loved it!
We had the most incredible trip of a lifetime! Thank you!
We will always be grateful for you helping us with our flights home during the pandemic.
"My wife and I went on a 12 day trip to South Africa and Victoria Falls. We wanted to have several Safaris, enjoy Cape Town, go shark cage diving to see the Great White sharks, and more in South Africa. Because several activities were weather dependent, we needed a lot of flexibility in our schedule. They, the team at Africa Explore Safaris, achieved that and more. They are the most responsive travel company we have ever dealt with. Quick responses to our emails and questions. Follow-ups to make sure we were enjoying ourselves." -Steve USA

Africa is the second-largest continent in the world with the second-highest population of all the continents. It is only Asia that is more densely populated. Africa covers an area of about 30.3 million square kilometers (11.7 million square miles) that includes the adjacent islands like Zanzibar and Madagascar, and it covers about 20% of the world’s land area. In 2018 the population of Africa stood at 1.3 billion people which is about 16% of the total human population of the world.
Africa is the origin of the modern human race with the oldest remains of Homo Sapiens having been discovered in Ethiopia, South Africa and Morocco. Africa is also the historical home of the African Diaspora with around 43 million Americans recorded to be of Black African descent. Many of these are descendants of the 12 million people captured in Africa, enslaved, and shipped across the Atlantic to the “New World”.
Africa’s population is the youngest of all the continents with the median age recorded a decade ago in 2012 at 19.7, while the worldwide median age at that time was 30.4 years old.
Explore Africa with its rich blend of cultures spread across the continent that includes the majestic Maasai of East Africa to the powerful Zulu tribe located on the eastern side of South Africa. The San, also loosely known as the Bushmen, inhabit the more arid regions around the Kalahari Desert. Learn about the San during safari holidays and South African Safaris on the Best of Botswana to Victoria Falls Safari that also visits the world’s largest delta Okavango Delta.
Africa is home to approximately 30% of the world’s languages. The oldest of the language groups is the Khoisan family spoken by the San that is found around the Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa and consists of between 40 to 70 languages. You may explore the wonderful culture of the San on the great safari experience, The Best of Botswana to Victoria Falls. Groups of the Khoisan have also inhabited the adjoining Namib Desert in Namibia which is the oldest desert in the world at close to 80 Million years old. Experience the magic of the 1600 km long Namib Desert on the Namibia Desert Explorer safari.
The magnificent Wildlife of Africa is still one of its greatest attractions for travelers from around the world. Africa is home to the largest living terrestrial animal, the African Savanna Elephant, and over 1100 other species of animals. Africa boasts more than 2600 species of birds from the beautiful Saddle Billed Stork found across sub-Saharan Africa and also prevalent in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, to the diminutive African Penguin located around Cape Town.
Discover Africa with Africa Explore Safaris. Our journeys and African Safari packages are carefully customized and curated to create your unique holiday experience.

Enjoy the vast Serengeti National Park in Tanzania teeming with wild animals and the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater.

Enjoy the sight of the beautiful Lake Nakuru in Kenya with a herd of Buffalo moving through the early morning mist and then enjoy the more arid Shaba and Samburu Reserve to the north of Mount Kenya.
