After a year of restrictions, travelers are itching to hit the road again. And that’s precisely why luxury African safari tour operator Africa Adventure Consultants (AAC) created its latest over-the-top itinerary. To celebrate its 20th year of operation, they’re offering a safari covering seven countries over 20 days.

AAC looked back at the best experiences and accommodations they’ve provided for guests over the past two decades and decided to combine them into one incredible capsule itinerary. The trip is a flying safari that visits South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda using private charters and helicopters to shuttle you from one bucket list destination to another.

In each destination, you’ll get to go on game and night drives to spot the Big Five, boating excursions, and gorilla trekking to see all of Africa’s incredible wildlife in one trip. After an adventurous day, you’ll return to luxury accommodations that include everything from opulent lodges like andBeyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge to remote luxury tented camps like Serra Cafema Camp. Even stopover points in places like Nairobi include once-in-a-lifetime experiences like having breakfast with giraffes at the famed Giraffe Manor. Literally, every type of safari and all the highlights takes place in those 20 days.

For every trip planned through AAC, travelers are paired with a personal Journey Specialist who acts as a go-to for all health and safety questions. They will have all the information needed about vaccinations, airport transfers, COVID-19 protocols, and more. Additionally, the company offers COVID-19 testing, a requirement for entry and re-entry to many destinations.
