Active Africa was founded by a tribe of walkers, climbers and mountaineers. So it is unsurprising that our goal is to share Africa’s high and wild places with travellers who enjoy exploring on foot.
We have been designing and leading walking and trekking tours for nearly 20 years, from Table Mountain in the south, to Kilimanjaro near the equator and Toubkal in the north. Our philosophy is to encourage our guests to travel slowly, whether on multi-day treks, safaris or short city tours. By exploring on foot, we’re able to immerse ourselves in the environment around us.
From south to north, Africa offers some of the most diverse and exciting travel destinations in the world. We offer culinary and historical walking tours in world class Cape Town with its luxurious hotels, exceptional restaurants and plentiful outdoor activities. Our cultural walks through Kigali demonstrate how trendy neighbourhoods blend modern conveniences with traditional ways. And in Old Cairo, we follow the cobbled back streets that tourists won't find as we indulge in the tastes and smells that are authentically Cairene.
Every trip is personally designed and curated by one of our founders, in consultation with the traveller or their agent. We are committed to making Africa accessible to travellers who are looking for more than just safari.
