Welcome To Our Extraordinary World

Our passion for travel dates back over four decades and defines our style: exciting, adventurous, cultural and one of discovery. Since that time, we have created and expanded our portfolio to incorporate a collection of exciting and less travelled destinations, from the Polar Regions to the heights of the Himalaya.

Since our beginnings we have provided outstanding adventures to the far remote corners of the world specialising in small group destinations and places that are different, sometimes a little off the beaten track, but always fascinating, educational and above all enjoyable for those journeying with us.

Our adventures offer you the chance to fully immerse yourself in the culture and natural world. And we believe these authentic interactions allow us to better understand, appreciate and protect the world in which we live in.

TOUR REVIEWS

Margaret Mortimer

Ethiopia Ancient Abyssinia

Ethiopia is unlike any other African country I have ever visited and full of surprises. Sues comprehensive coverage gave us a window into the lives of the local people as well as the fascinating history that shaped the country. According to Daniel our gentle and knowledgeable guide, September was a great time to see the country, as it was lush and green at the tail end of the wet season. I was especially glad to have travelled on the 27 day Ethiopia – Ancient Abyssinia trip Adventure Associates offered. There was so much to learn about the mountain wildlife, the tribal peoples and their traditions in the south and the ancient history of remarkable rock-hewn churches and religious festivals of the north.
Our driver Solomon was exceptional and safe, we had several flights to ease the distances. Sue chose delightful accommodation in all the places we stayed and mostly all meals were included. One of the secrets of the itinerary was that in many cases we had 2 to 3 nights in the one place which is a huge bonus in my opinion.
Truly an extraordinary adventure, thank you Sue, Daniel and Solomon.

Madagascar A Lost World

We travelled to Madagascar in May 2019. Only ones on the trip with our own driver and excellent guide. Sue’s itinerary is great, time on roads to see how the Malagasy live and flights to cover longer distances. Food, accommodation, wildlife and geological experiences were wonderful. Great walks at Isalo. Guides went out of their way to ensure you could see the lemurs. Loved it all especially the lemurs and wonderful chameleons.
