Next Adventure develops custom itineraries based on personal experience, trusted partnerships and thoughtful client consultation.
I have wanted to go on safari since I was little. I love animals and I love traveling to new places so a safari sounded perfect. I have gone to Africa 4 times with Next Adventure and have treasured each experience and the fulfillment of long-time dreams.
I have visited 7 countries on these trips and they all have their own fascinating aspects. You may not go the same places I have. But I can guarantee you will not want to leave wherever you do go!!

We take safaris personally
Wide-open spaces with private concessions in the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango and the thirstlands of the Kalahari Desert, each provides rich wildlife habitat and a variety of activities. Home to the San People and meerkats and more. Ride in a dugout canoe, on a horse, cruise the Chobe River, walk , so many ways to explore!
Think zebra & wildebeest Migration, umbrella acacias extending the African savannah and sky, Masai warriors, ranches with horses and family-friendly safaris, and “Out of Africa” colonial heritage for starters. Kenya set the standard for safaris and its attractions are legend. We invite you to explore its undiscovered and wild aspects with us!
Home to the Cradle of Mankind, Africa’s iconic summit Kilimanjaro, the other-worldly NgorongoroCrater, the Selous and Ruaha, the teeming plains of the Serengeti, the continent’s largest game reserve & the rich and exotic Swahili coastal culture on the islands which include the wonders of Zanzibar!
A hidden gem of a country, Zimbabwe contains Victoria Falls, huge herds of elephant in Hwange National Park, edenic Mana Pools National Park on the Zambesi River for close encounters with elephants and hippo while walking and canoeing. Not to mention that Zimbabwe’s guides remain the best on the continent!
Famous for Kruger National Park with its “Big Five” luxury lodges boasting fine dining and wine cellars as well as malaria-free options in other parts of the country. Combine all that with the attractions of Cape Town, nearby Winelands and the Garden Route with a rich and fascinating history, and South Africa has something for everyone!
Step back in time watching leopards in the South Luangwa Valley, visit remote and wild Kafue National Park or the fill your days with active adventures in the Lower Zambezi & Victoria Falls and you’ll be back for more! Walk from camp to camp, get close to elephants, marvel at flocks of quelea and carmine bee-eaters! Zambia is magic.
Desert-adapted elephants and illusive black rhino are among Namibia’s key attractions along with its iconic Sossusvlei Desert dunes and white expanses of calcrete pans surrounded with wildlife in Etosha National Park. Finally, the wild Skeleton Coast is mysterious, misty and rich in history.
Verdant and equatorial, Uganda is known as "the pearl of Africa," and it makes for a wonderful stand-alone destination. It is a birder’s paradise and home to a wide diversity of primates including chimpanzees and mountain gorillas as well as waterfalls, tree-climbing lions and the extraordinary Kidepo National Park.
Rwanda is a land of a thousand hills and millions of stories, offering the easiest access to mountain gorilla trekking on the slopes of the lake-dotted Virunga Volcanoes and so much more: chimp trekking in Nyungwe, fascinating cultural experiences, a world-class capital city, and ground-breaking conservation projects in Akagera.
Let's start planning your safari
In March my wife and I took our second trip to Africa with Next Adventure. We spent two weeks in Kenya & Tanzania, and it was an amazing experience.
There is nothing quite like being up close to so many animals in their natural habitat, literally thousands of animals and at times we were right in the middle of the herds. It was stunning.
On Lewa Conservancy in Kenya we saw a large number of rhinos as well as observing the translocation of a troublesome elephant.
In the Mara we spotted all of the Big 5 animals on a single game drive; and in Tanzania we had the opportunity to watch a mother cheetah teaching her cub to hunt.
But aside from the animals and beautiful vistas (not to mention sunsets) we were impressed by the people, whether those working in the camps, or our drivers, or the rangers and others we met. Going on safari is incredible and gives you a whole new respect and view of Africa.
And there is no better organization that Next Adventure to help with those plans. Kili is an invaluable resource. The organization and their local contacts in Africa cannot be beat.
Kili sold us when we started talking with her about our first trip, and we look forward to doing it again.
We were asleep and had the canvas part of our tent open so we could look outside but the mesh part was down. Probably about 2:30 or 3:00am one morning we heard a crunching sound outside. We slowly looked out the tent from our bed.A hippo was standing less than five feet from the tent opening eating a sausage fruit!!
We were amazed! We didn’t turn on any lights or take a picture because we didn’t want to frighten it. We just sat there and watched it chomp on the fruit. We loved it!
