Join our group of like-minded safari sisters for an unforgettable African Safari. Choose your style of adventure and discover your Africa on a safari to Uganda or Tanzania in 2020.
Adventure Buddies, I was not prepared for how much Africa would make me fall in love with her animals, landscapes, people, culture — her wild-ness. Now that I am a convert, I can understand when people say the only problem with going to Africa, is having gone to Africa. It changes you forever, and nobody you tell will ever be able to understand it until they go there, too. That is why I have partnered with International Becoming an Outdoors Woman. My goal is to take the intimidation out of going to Africa so more women can experience what I experienced and live their childhood dream of seeing this amazing continent.
Choose Your Safari Style & Discover Your Africa!
Each spring, I lead two very different adventures in Africa. Read the descriptions below and see which trip is more your style.

Uganda: Safari w/ Mountain Gorilla Trekking

Animal Encounters: Mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, rhinoceros, Shoe-bill stork, Savannah elephants, forest elephants, zebras, lions (including tree climbing lions), Rothschild’s Giraffes.

The rangers assign participants to a trail based on their skill level and availability. Participants who have joint or stamina issues should talk to us to discuss.
Why I love this trip?
This is Africa off-the-beaten path and quite certainly a trip of a lifetime. This has all the fixings for true adventure including hiking into the jungle led by a ranger and scout in search of great apes. Safaris by jeep, boat, and wooden canoe in parks rich with wildlife. Uganda has a buzz about it. There is life everywhere. We cover over 1000 miles in 12 days from the dry Savannah to the cool mountain forests. We see places from your childhood history books like the Nile River and Lake Victoria.
Trip Cost: $4595 plus airfare.
Availability: 2/12 spots left
Tanzania: Best of The Northern Circuit, Arusha, Ngorongoro, & The Serengeti
Style: Semi-Luxury & Laid Back
When: May 5-15, 2020
Animal Encounters: Witness the great migration of the wildebeest and zebras and the animals that follow. See the big cats including lions, cheetahs, and leopards.
Activities: Jeep safaris, cultural programs with 3 different tribes.
Why we love this trip?
Huge herds of animals everywhere! Go to sleep to the sounds of wild animals like lions, zebras, hippos, and cape buffalo roaming around at night. Marvel at the harmony of so many different species of animals co-existing with each other. The other protected areas like Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a unique place to see literally a bowl-full of animals including rhinos, elephants, lions, and antelope. Olduvai Gorge is the setting for everything you learned about Louis Leakey in Anthropology 101.
We stay at a variety of 4-star camps and lodges, which is 5-star quality for most of us back in the USA. The service is above and beyond, and the lodges are set next to protected areas. There is always wildlife around, maybe even from your front porch.
Trip Cost: $5525 plus airfare.
Availability: 4/12 spots available

With a network of women in nearly all 50 states and some Canadian provinces, you know you are among friends who share your interests and environmental ethic. Our groups are multi-generational, supportive, and non-competitive. You will gain instant travel buddies to share your experience with, and future life-long friends.
Get the support you need from start to finish. Meet your fellow travelers in your trip’s Facebook Group before you even set foot in Africa. Our pre-travel packet, and detailed packing list will help you prepare for your adventure. All of the planning has been done for you. We even have a travel agent that can coordinate your flights.
Affordable Africa. While these safaris are not budget adventures, they are affordable and give you extraordinary safari experiences while providing local guides with living wages and contribute to social and environmental causes. These trips were curated by me with my boots on the ground. This is not a cookie-cutter tour. It is an expedition designed for women like you.
If there is availability on a trip, there is time to sign up. If you can’t make it this year, be sure to email me so we can stay in touch. I will add you to our email list and you will be first to know of our upcoming adventures to Africa and beyond!
