Adventure Safaris

““Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.”
― Barry Finlay, Kilimanjaro and Beyond

Think of an African safari, and your first thought is that an adrenalin rush would be caused by a charging buffalo, or the booming roar of a lion round the back of your tent. However, there are plenty of ways to engineer your thrills, rather than leaving them to chance.

As usual, though, you are talking in superlatives. Here, you don’t just climb a mountain, you climb Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world. You don’t just go rafting, you’re rafting grade-5 rapids on the Nile, and you don’t just hike a canyon - you’re hiking the Fish River Canyon, the largest in Africa. Whatever you decide to get up to, be assured that you will be doing it in some of the most fabulous locations possible.

Options For Adventure Safaris

White water rafting on the Nile in Uganda

There are plenty of “soft” and “hard” adventure options available. In hiking terms, our multi-day walking and canoeing trips in Uganda’s Kigezi highlands are at the easiest end of the scale. Gorilla tracking in Uganda and Rwanda requires at least average fitness, but are day hikes from comfortable lodges.

Ramping it up a bit, we offer a serviced multi-day Fish River Canyon hike in Namibia, where your basic mobile camp is set up for you every day in advance. Expeditions that need more time and a higher level of fitness are our 8-9 day Kilimanjaro and Rwenzori climbs, the latter requiring a high level of fitness and experience, and the ability to take some degree of hardship.

The river activities are centered around the Nile at Jinja in Uganda and the Zambezi at Victoria Falls, which both offer white water rafting and bungee jumping, with Jinja offering Kiwi-style jet boating.

Lastly, there are options for horseback, camelback and quad-bike safaris in Uganda, Kenya, Botswana and Namibia

 

Planning And Preparation Required

Mobile Camp in the Fish River Canyon, Namibia

As ever, the seasons play a big part in planning your excursion. In East Africa, Kilimanjaro is to be avoided in the rainy season April and May, while the Rwenzoris can only be safely climbed in the dry months of January, February, June or July. The Nile and Zambezi are more forgiving, being navigable throughout the year. The Fish River Canyon is best from March to May, when the days are mild and the night temperatures haven’t yet reached their coldest.

Apart from advice on weather, we will guide you through the process of planning for your particular adventure with detailed lists of the equipment you will provided with, and what you will need to bring with you.
