Our intimate knowledge of Africa stems from not only being born and raised there, but also a lifetime spent working in the safari industry all over Southern Africa. Did you know that Antoinette managed safari camps for more than 17 years in some wild and remote destinations? Growing up in the midst of South Africa’s colourful unfolding story ignited Dan’s passion for history and wildlife photography – providing you a valuable insight into Africa’s colourful tapestry. We specialize in 11 African countries that we know intimately and have an excellent relationship with the operators in each country.
What You Can Expect from Us…
Throughout Africa we are very careful to select only the best companies to work with. The ones that we know for sure care about the environment and people as deeply as we do – ensuring that no exploitation of people or resources will ever happen. We’ve had long relationships with so many of our partners and feel proud to be associated with them.
Are You Ready to Join Us on Safari Yet?
We both have a great Africa hangover, and in some ways, it feels like an amazing dream. We are both underwhelmed with being back in “boring” southern Ontario after the adventure of a lifetime. Thanks to you both for arranging a fantastic trip. We thoroughly enjoyed travelling with you. We started out thinking this would be a once in a lifetime trip but now feel like it was a good start.
My daughters and I travelled to Africa in June of this year and it’s taken me this long to put something into words. On this Thanksgiving weekend I am so thankful that we had the opportunity to do this trip and more than thankful that we enlisted Ants and Dan to set up the trip for us! Ants listened to what our interests were and coordinated a trip that suited us all perfectly. From flights, accommodations, special diet requests, activities and everything else, it was absolutely perfect. We were gone 15 days and saw so many must-sees and did so many fun things I still have a hard time processing it. If you have a chance to go to Africa, I would highly recommend Explorations Africa for their knowledge of Africa and the travel industry in general. The entire trip went without a hitch and we will remember it for the rest of our lives! Thanks Ants!
5 stars is not enough! This was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime for me and it was. But it was so much more than what I expected. Dan and Ants are so professional, attentive and a whole lot of fun too. Everything was organised to the finest detail, with some personal touches also. I am from Australia, so our organising was done via emails and Skype calls. We covered everything and trust me, I had lots of questions!!
The accommodation was exceptional, the staff everywhere treated us like royalty, the food was delicious and there was plenty of it too. Ants also introduced me to Amarula. : ) I even had an Amarula frappe waiting for me for breakfast one morning!
I loved every single day, we saw so many beautiful animals and met some beautiful locals along the way. There has not been one day that has passed since my safari that I haven’t thought about it. I love animals with all of my heart, so each day was such a gift. I never told you Ants and Dan, but I actually had a little cry in the back of the safari vehicle driving back to camp on our last night. I just didn’t want it to end, and I didn’t want to leave our stunning lion we had found.
If I get the opportunity to do this again with you, I will. Actually, I will make sure I do this again with you. Thank you for the best holiday of my life. 5 stars is not enough.
