AFRICA FOR EVERYONE
50+ is the new 30+
Active adventures at any age
If you’ve come to this page, you’re a little bit older, a little bit wiser… but still rocking your holidays like you always have, and completely up for an adventure in Africa. Welcome, you’ve come to the right place! We are experts in organising amazing trips to Africa for 50+ travellers who want to get out there and live their best life. Australia’s baby boomers are the biggest travellers in the country, always looking to broaden their horizons. And we’re here to help you do exactly that, in one of the most incredible places on Earth.
We get it: travellers falling into the 50+ category vary wildly. If you’re after a “soft safari” or need a bit of help getting around, click here for top advice. But if you’re fit, active and don’t understand why travel companies even make a distinction between different ages, then read on… you’ve found your tribe. We can fulfil all your African travel dreams – with the perfect amount of comfort and luxury thrown in for good measure.
So what is your travel dream?
Ticking off the bucket list
Seeing the Big Five on a game drive in Kruger National Park. Witnessing the Great Migration in the Maasai Mara in Kenya and/or the Serengeti in Tanzania/Kenya. Getting soaked by “The Smoke that Thunders”, a.k.a Victoria Falls.
Seeing wildlife from a mokoro meandering through the Okavango Delta. Gazing upon – and maybe even summiting – Kilimanjaro or chimpanzees in Africa’s wild rainforest.
Whatever iconic African experience you want to tick off your travel list, we’re here to help.
Getting off the beaten track
The iconic experiences are iconic for a reason, but there are so many more jaw-dropping places to go and things to seek out in Africa… ones that will get you right off the beaten track. For example, you could see lions stalking seals on the Skeleton Coast in Namibia; visit Lalibela, a World Heritage-listed site where ancient rock-hewn churches have given it the nickname, the “Petra of Ethiopia”; or go gorilla trekking in Rwanda or Uganda… or perhaps even the Democratic Republic of Congo, where you can also sleep on the side of a live volcano.
In a world where everyone’s “been there, done that”, Africa offers endless opportunities for something truly new.
A city escape
Southern and east Africa boast many intriguing and compelling cities, but for a sophisticated getaway in one of the most beautiful cities on Earth, there’s really only one option: Cape Town.
There’s a great coffee culture, top shopping and an exciting culinary scene that’s so hot that you’ll have to book months in advance to get in to some of the restaurants currently wowing food lovers from across the globe. And just a couple of hours beyond the city centre lie the vine-swept Cape Winelands, home to picturesque wineries and world-class tipples.
A road trip here is a must for fine-wine enthusiasts and lovers of world-class food.
An exotic beach break
As Australians, we’re pretty blasé about beach holidays. But you’ve never had a beach holiday like the ones you’ll have in Africa.
You can relax on the Zanzibar Archipelago in Tanzania; wander the beaches of Mozambique or Madagascar; go island-hopping in the Seychelles; laze on the sandy shores of Mauritius; or go diving in the waters of Lake Malawi (yes, we know it’s not a beach, but this palm-fringed wonder looks and feels just like one!). And have you heard of São Tomé and Principe? Africa’s second-smallest nation and an untouched island civilisation with a fascinating history.
Celebrating in style
There are certain milestones in life that deserve to be marked in a special way. “Big” birthdays.
All of the wedding anniversaries featuring precious stones and metals. Second – or even third – weddings. Retirements.
These major life landmarks are all worthy of an epic celebration, and a safari holiday in Africa couldn’t be more perfect.
Holidaying with the whole family
An African safari is the perfect destination for a holiday with two, or even three, generations of your family.
Imagine seeing the looks on the faces of your grandchildren as they encounter their first lion or rhino.
It’s a priceless memory that you’ll cherish forever. And every moment will be heightened because you’ll experience it through their enchanted eyes as well.
