If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably dreamed more than once of adventuring in the untamed big-game regions of Africa … eyeballing and photographing the ’Big Five’ … enjoying sights and sounds that most people can only read about or experience second-hand on TV.

But, if you’re anything like us, the pressures of time, too-little-money and too-much-on-your-plate have probably meant you’ve never done more than dream – right?

Well, 10 years ago WE DID IT! We took a fun group of like-minded young-at-heart Kiwis on an East African safari. And that was so TOTALLY MIND-BOGGLINGLY AMAZING that we did it again … and again … and again! And (no kidding) we rate all of these safaris amongst the VERY BEST travel experiences we’ve ever had. That’s why we’re going back yet again – in August 2020 – and YOU’RE invited to come!

Words can’t really describe the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and experiences that await you: the fantastic wildlife parks (stunning scenery stretching as far as the eye could see)… the abundance of free-to-roam animals (a zoo will never be the same!) … the endless herds of gazelles, zebras, wildebeest… the majesty of elephants on the move … the thrill of lions on a hunt and leopards on a kill and cheetah’s at full-speed…

We’re old hands when it comes to tour groups. We know how to find our way around airports. And we know how to make the most of unique travel opportunities. So come and share this MIDLIFE MADNESS ON SAFARI with us!

It promises to be totally wild!

The African safari was beyond our expectations in every way. Full on, but so well organised. We would recommend Midlife Madness to anyone who enjoys wildlife – we certainly got our fill of them and came home well satisfied. Great, great trip.

I am still on a high! The trip was fantastic – so well organised and run. Such great memories and a wonderful tour group. I still marvel at all the up-close-and-personal wildlife we saw. My appreciation to you both.

Thanks for your companionship and friendship on the safari. It was certainly an amazing experience. As a lone traveller, there’s always some uncertainty as how to fit in with a group, but I found this went fine, and I am especially grateful to you both.

Africa was absolutely fantastic! Hopefully we will catch up again …
