"The best family safari experience! Lost Adventures arranged a 7-day family safari for me and my two kids. The program was set up perfectly! - Målfrid Røe, Norway
A safari in the African wilderness is, in our view, one of the most exciting adventures a person can experience – one that belongs on everyone’s bucket list! Explore wildlife treasures in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, watch the incomparable Great Migration in the Serengeti in Tanzania, spot big cats in the Maasai Mara National Reserve of Kenya, or go trekking with mountain gorillas in Rwanda. Relax on the glittering beaches off the coast of Tanzania or explore the historic architecture and charm of Zanzibar, home to the bustling ports that gave rise to the nickname “Spice Island.” Experience the astonishing wildlife while calling tents, luxury lodges or camps your home base, allowing you to customize the perfect setting for your adventure in the African wilderness.
Lost Adventures collaborates with some of the best and most experienced safari operators in Africa. Whether you opt for an rugged adventure, a luxury expedition, or a combination of the two, images of the famous “big five” animals and the echoing roar of a powerful lion are sure to spark your imagination!
Venture far off the beaten track and into the untamed wilderness of Botswana – the land of contrasts! Never-ending landscapes at Makgadikgadi salt pans & Central Kalahari Game Reserve, a lush paradise at the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park - home to the world’s largest elephant herds.
Combine the classic safari experience with your dream beach holiday in Tanzania! Watch the Serengeti’s unparalleled Great Migration or spot flamingos and rare tree-climbing lions at Lake Manyara. Take in breathtaking views from Mount Kilimanjaro or immerse yourself in the historic architecture and glittering beaches of Zanzibar.
"I had a great experience booking my African trip through Lost Adventures. Mikkel makes sure that you feel safe and he will answer any questions any time of the day. Even during the stay in Africa he wrote me and made sure I was fine.
This is my second time booking with Mikkel and I will definitely choose him again. The best recommendations from me." - Trine Lauridsen, Denmark
Volunteering or joining a guiding course can be an extraordinary, life-changing experience for people who want to get a behind-the-scenes, hands-on look at wildlife conservation efforts in Africa. Collaborating with our favorite wildlife projects in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, and the African Guide Academy in Botswana, we organize volunteer and guiding experiences for people of all nationalities. Most projects are between 2 to 12 weeks long to give participants opportunities to make impacts in a variety of functions – including exciting, 2 to 4 week-stints assisting in Whale Shark Research in the Maldives.
