In Our Travelers' Words

The Peacock Family

Multi-Generational Safari

"Our youngest, Emily is almost 7. And mom and dad are in their late 70's. And the rest of us fall somewhere in between - and I can tell you we ALL just had the best time! It's tricky to have a plan that appeals to everyone. The thought of our daily adventure was so exciting, that no one minded the early morning wake-ups - not even the teenagers! They were often the first ones on the jeep - as they couldn't wait to start the drive each day."

Family Safari

"My father-in-law had always wanted to go to Africa, and invited us all to go with him to celebrate his 80th birthday. We went with no expectations, and the trip was beyond anything we could have imagined. In each camp we were exhilarated to be so unbelievably close to animals. Our guides really turned the safari into an educational experience for the girls with in-depth discussions on not just the wildlife, but also history, culture, and the relationship between tourism and the environment. It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime trip – but we hope to return."

Active Safari

"This was our fourth trip to Africa, and by far the best. We keep going back because we love the whole experience: the people, the wildlife, their behavior, the environment, the accommodations, the music, everything. We chose Bushtracks for this custom adventure with two goals: to see the migration and to see the gorillas. Experiencing the migration was like witnessing a miracle in process. Could it get any better? Yes - the gorilla treks were the most exhausting thing we've ever done, but worth every exhilarating ache. Amazing!"

At the end of the day our travelers are most qualified to describe the African safari experience, and they certainly say it best.

Incredible Africa 2018 Itinerary

Athens, Greece

Athens’ location offers convenient jet routing to northern Africa, and was described by the poet John Milton as “the eye of Greece, the mother of arts and eloquence.” Upon your arrival in Athens, you’ll experience both of those sentiments: relaxing in a beautiful hotel with a view of the Acropolis, and meeting your fellow travelers and expedition host, David Tett, who will provide you with an overview of your upcoming adventures. The next day explore the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum, where a modern glass building stands atop an archeological excavation in a completely unique fusion of old and new. In the evening gather for a welcome dinner complete with sea breezes and views of the blue waters of the Aegean Sea below.
