Africa offers some of the best wildlife watching opportunities on the planet. The chance to witness the world’s most graceful and enigmatic creatures on their terms, on their home turf? It doesn’t get better than this…


Spectacular landscapes, stunning beaches

“This was my chance to introduce my partner’s son Ed to adventure travel,” says Exodus’ Gina Eckersley with a grin. But what would Ed think? “This was the most exciting holiday ever!” he says. “We saw a rhino as well as loads of other animals, and Kilimanjaro was awesome.”

Exodus' Iconic Journeys

Journeys are an integral part of the human experience. Our journeys may define us – but is up to us to choose the route we take. Your journey may be historic, unearthing the legacy of ancient warriors, traders and conquerors. You could find yourself taking on a life-changing pilgrimage following in the well-trodden footsteps of many before you. It may even take you half way to the other side of the world.

Mountain gloat

  I arrived home and flopped down to some mind-numbing soap opera when I suddenly realised what I’d agreed to. “I’m going to climb the tallest mountain in Africa!” I told my kind and supportive flatmates, who all burst into laughter. The next day was the first of many spent in preparation for Kilimanjaro. It became immediately and somewhat painfully apparent that I would need to work hard on my fitness.
