Mozambique, Angola, Namibia, Sao Tome, Principe & Cabo Verde
With parts of North Africa unsettled during the recent past and most of Southern and East Africa very much on the regular tourist circuits, we have worked hard to put together a new tour to some of Africa’s least visited countries. This exploratory itinerary takes you to places where tourism is in a completely embryonic stage. Mozambique and Angola have had a troubled history but are now completely safe for group travel and have good hotels and lodges while the island nations of Sao Tome & Principe and Cape Verde remain two of Africa’s most peaceful nations. Johannesburg in South Africa and Windhoek in Namibia provide welcome and convenient transit points.
-Cultural and historical legacies of Portuguese presence in Africa, one of the world’s first great empires
-Game-viewing safaris in some of Africa’s most remote and least-visited places
-Huge range of landscapes, climates, wildlife, languages and cultures
-Great variety in local cuisines, many with intriguing influences from Europe and Africa
-Friendly local peoples, as yet unaccustomed to mass tourism

We are delighted to announce a brand new series of tours to North Korea, a landmark ‘first’ for the company, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year. The new North Korea itineraries provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit one of the most secretive and intriguing countries in the world; an organized tour is the only way to visit the DPRK—there is no alternative.
North Korea is the second atypical destination to be added to Adventures Abroad’s tour schedule in 2012; Iraqi Kurdistan has been offered since January and has since seen two successful tours conclude to rave reviews.
“How is it we can regularly put together ‘off-the-beaten-track’ tours that other operators can’t? Because to us, it’s familiar territory; Adventures Abroad has a quarter-century of experience creating and running tours to far-flung lands,” said Product Manager Rick Unrau, who went on a reconnaissance trip to Iraqi Kurdistan before spearheading the project to create the itineraries. “We were among the first North American operators to run tours to Yemen the 1990s, then Libya, Iran and Syria when they were accessible, and our current schedule includes less-visited destinations like Indonesia, Colombia, Papua New Guinea, the Caucasus and West Africa. We are meticulous in our research and uncompromising when it comes to client safety. We know what we’re doing.”

From Serra Hughes, currently leading a group in Uganda:
“Wow, you guys! It’s amazing here. Uganda is where it’s at! It’s just too beautiful for words and every day is a crazy adventure. My group has quite a few seasoned travellers and they’re up for just about anything, which makes for all the more fun! Things are so different; drivers just get out of the car during game drive and stand on the engine bonnet looking around, no binoculars, no guide books, no nothing. The people are so friendly and not jaded by tourists at all. They just wave and smile and want to shake your hand and talk and the chimpanzees were mad. Totally mad. There are no words to describe seeing them in the wild. They are show-offs and seem to love the attention. Most of them, at least. Some of them are shy and run off for no reason. At one point, at the end of the day, they were all lying around relaxing in the bushes and the trackers said to get ready because any minute, one of them would give the signal and it would be time to move. WOW. Suddenly, it was all action with the screaming and hooting that they do and one was making a racket drumming on the trunk of a hollow tree. The entire forest was filled with their maniacal sounds and they were all around us running and jumping and we were just trucking along with them. It’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced.”
