    Can’t recommend this trip enough. Great for getting off the beaten track and visiting the lesser seen parts of Southern Africa. Get ready for adventure in Angola, so much fun and super varied experiences!!

  2. despina.h88

    Did both expeditions from east to west of africa, from tanzania to angola. One of the best decisions of my life, it had everything, from safaris to camping. COULDNT RECOMMEND THIS ENOUGH

  3. Marta Balbastre Zuriaga

    Wild! The trip to Angola couldn´t have been any better! I joined both Expeditions, started in Tanzania and made all the way to the west coast. Amazing adventure, incredible experience and as always great people! Would do it again and again.
    Thinking already about the next expedition!

  4. Isa Tobolski

    Great well-rounded itinerary + best travel fam = epic adventure and lifelong stories. Don’t think, just say yes!

  5. Jorge Dominguez

    The Angola expedition had everything you can wish for in an African trip.

    We started off with the amazing Victoria Falls, a true wander of nature, then we moved on to Botswana and Namibia where we had amazing safaris seeing a lot of wildlife, and ended up with Angola, the best part and the biggest surprise for me: friendly locals, amazing culture, great landscapes, incredible beaches.

    10/10 would recommend joining this trip.
