Africa Adventure Consultants Specializes in Securing
Magical Wildlife Encounters for Safari Guests

National Geographic Traveler Award-Winning Operator
Offers Top 5 Favorite Wildlife Viewing Destinations

DENVER, CO, August 4, 2010 – Africa Adventure Consultants specializes in securing magic moments for its clients. While in the world of nature nothing is ever 100 percent predictable, this company has sleuthed out where and when herds, migrations and watering holes are most likely to offer the most drama and excitement for guests who travel thousands of miles and stake their vacation time on the promise of a plentitude of game sightings.

Kent Redding, veteran safari traveler and president of African Adventure Consultants (, says that individual destinations and most certainly camps differ widely in how predictable game viewings will be.

“After years of traveling to Africa, we’ve developed our own short list of the top wildlife encounters one can experience on safari,” said Redding. “Our in-house travel consultants have done them all and are excited to share their experiences with anyone considering an Africa vacation.”

Redding and his team at Africa Adventure Consultants offer their personal top five safari wildlife encounters:

#1. Big Game of the Okavango Delta: The Ultimate Botswana Safari features game viewing in the Mombo Concession located on Chief’s Island in the world-famous Okavango Delta. This is considered some of the best game viewing in Botswana and possibly in all of Africa. Large concentrations of plains game can be found right near camp and guests can often view a variety of animals without even leaving their private verandah. Game drives include prolific sightings of lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, elephant, hyena, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra and large herds of buffalo.

#2. Elephants of South Luangwa National Park: A Zambia Walking Safari is the way to go for a natural and unhurried wildlife encounter. South Luangwa National Park is the birthplace of the true walking safari. Wildlife viewing includes herds of wild elephant numbering up to 70 strong plus encounters of wild dog, leopard, buffalo and zebra.

#3. The Leopards of Sabi Sand: One of Africa Adventure Consultant’s top wildlife safaris is Sabi Sand & Cape Town Safari where guests are treated to unsurpassed leopard sightings in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. This safari features Exeter River Lodge which affords an ideal location overlooking the river in prime leopard-viewing territory.

“Lyndsay from our office came within a stone’s throw of four leopards, including a cub, on one afternoon game drive in the Sabi Sand last year,” said Redding.

#4. Mountain Gorilla: On an Ultimate Uganda Safari guests go gorilla trekking and tracking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Adventurous travelers will explore the far reaches of Uganda, including Murchison Falls, a 141-foot cascade on the River Nile. Along with gorilla sightings Uganda offers more than 13 primate species, rare birds such as the Shoebill, and elusive tree climbing lions.

#5 Chimpanzee of Mahale Mountains National Park: Acclaimed for its exceptional primate viewing, the Wildest Tanzania Safari centers on Mahale Mountains National Park where spectacular peaks rise from crystal clear Lake Tanganyika. On the slopes, thick forests provide the perfect home for the chimpanzee. Three full days are spent here tracking these fascinating creatures, watching their daily routines and comic antics.
