- CRAIG B.
My March 2017 trip to Southern Africa was my second Man Expeditions adventure, following the Canada Moose Safari trip the prior summer.
Based on that first trip I knew I could expect an unforgettable experience and form lasting connections with a group of like-minded guys.
A visit to Africa is at the top of the bucket list for an avid amateur photographer like me who has a keen interest in shooting landscapes and wildlife in their natural habitats. This trip did not disappoint and the itinerary included visits to places I might not have otherwise visited, thanks to Tony and Craig’s experience living and traveling in this part of the world.
The desert landscapes of Namibia were absolutely breathtaking. There’s something about the stark beauty and eerie silence of the surroundings that impress upon you just how far away from it all you’ve traveled which I’d imagine visiting another planet would be like. I was planning my return before I’d even left!
In all three destinations the accommodations, food, and service exceeded my expectations and then some. As for the excursions, I can’t even begin to describe the feeling of being just feet away from a pride of lionesses and their cubs basking in the glow of the late afternoon sun, or the first time encountering elephants in the wild. If you’re serious about taking photos be prepared to sort through thousands of incredible images!
Absolutely the trip of a lifetime and one that I cannot recommend more highly.
