For decades the Iconic Africa team has been living, exploring and experiencing every adventure that this incredible continent has to offer. We are all eternally grateful for these opportunities and we cherish the memories they have left us with. Now the time has come that we share them with you with the launch of Iconic Experiences!
“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” Eleanor Roosevelt.
Whether it’s sailing in a hot air balloon high above the Serengeti, coming face-to-face with a gorilla in the depths of the Rwandan rainforest or swimming with Dolphins in the big blue we’ve got just the thing for you. Below is a brief introduction to the iconic experiences we’ve handpicked just for you.
The Great Wildebeest Migration
The wildebeest migration is rated as one of the world’s most incredible wildlife spectacles, and a phenomenon that should have its place on every safari-lover’s bucket list. Every year, over 1.5 million wildebeest, zebra, and antelope migrate clockwise around the Serengeti/Masai Mara ecosystem. They travel up to 3000 kilometers each year in search of rain-ripened grass. It is a natural phenomenon like no other, a spectacle not to be missed and, most definitely, an event that belongs on your bucket list.
There is no better way to get up-close-and-personal with the African bush, and its wildlife, than to go on a walking safari. It is, without a doubt, the best way to fully experience and appreciate the magical intricacies that make up a regular day out in the bush.
Even if you’ve had many safari experiences in the past, this iconic adventure will, no doubt, knock your socks off. Read more.
No wildlife adventure can compete with coming face-to-face with a wild gorilla. This is an endangered species that will certainly take your breath away. Their sheer size and human-like characteristics will leave you feeling astounded.
Because their numbers are diminishing and because the treks are a highly-restricted activity, encountering wild gorillas is considered to be an unforgettable and essential travel experience. Visiting these gentle, mystical primates in their natural habitat really is one of earth’s ultimate wildlife experiences. Read more.
A balloon safari is very definitely an adventure that belongs at the top of your bucket list. Africa shows off beneath you as you float gently through the beautiful blue sky.
The feeling of weightlessness, the sense of space and freedom, and the incredible perspective that the height provides will render you speechless. With the sun peeking up over the horizon beyond, with the darkness turning to light, and with the shimmer of gold on the savannah below, the beauty is more than overwhelming. Read more.
When you hear the word “safari” you immediately think of the Masai Mara, the Serengeti, or the Kruger National Park. However, the official dictionary definition of the word “safari” is “an expedition to observe or hunt animals in their natural habitat.” So why not explore the offshore wonders of the Indian Ocean from White Pearl, Mozambique, where a somewhat different, but equally magical, adventure awaits?
