About Southern Sky Adventures

We specialize in organizing guided and self-drive tours through Southern and East Africa

Welcome to Southern Sky Adventures! Tailor made itineraries are offered for families, friends and honeymooners to business travelers looking for a trip add on to clubs to adventure seekers. A natural attraction to the wilds, locales and people of Africa served as the motivating factor in starting a business specializing in African safaris after a six month trip to the continent in 2000. The extended journey was difficult to end and upon return to the United States we had to determine a way to keep going back. Leading tours to Africa has enabled us to meet this goal while bringing some local knowledge to would be travelers.
