We will remain in stable areas at all times and we will be always accompanied by an expert local crew, which will help us interact with locals and have the best possible experience. We’ll also be traveling in a group, so that removes many of the risks when you do it solo.

  1. 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

  2. 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.
