Imagine your dream travel adventure and you are almost guaranteed to find it in Africa. Whether it’s an epic mountain climbing expedition, an unforgettable rafting holiday or a Masaai Mara safari, on African adventures, there is no limit to what is possible.

Each trip to Africa inspires travellers anew. Every country across the continent is entirely unique, whether it’s the Arabian-influenced intrigue of Morocco or the vibrant atmosphere of Tanzania.

Offering spectacular landscapes, iconic cultural heritage and wildlife like you will find nowhere else in the world, Africa is the essence of bucket list travel.

Do you dream of trekking through the immense sand dunes of the Sahara desert, camel in tow? Is reaching the Roof of Africa your ultimate goal, or have you always wanted to experience an African safari? Perhaps you’re in search of the world’s best white water rapids on the Zambezi River…

Here at The Bucket List Company, we offer inclusive African holiday packages that make these dreams a reality.

Picture yourself taking in the sights of ancient Marrakech from your own hot air balloon, or meeting Masaai tribespeople as you climb to the snowy summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. On our African adventures, every moment is a new tick off your bucket list.

What our Customers Say

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:

“I have just returned from a Sahara Desert trek with The Bucket List Company, and they were amazing!

What I love about this company is that it does exactly what it says on the tin! No hidden charges, an easy website, very professional, quick response to queries and very reliable. I am a single female traveler so it is very important that I feel safe and confident with the countries and challenges I take on.

I would highly recommend this company to everyone, but especially to female travellers! Want to do something out of your comfort zone that is challenging and rewarding? The Bucket List Company will certainly not disappoint! My advice is ‘go for it’ and get ticking off your bucket list!”

“This bucket list ticks all boxes!

What can I say? I just back from the Mount Toubkal trip and it has been the experience of a lifetime.

Since I booked this trip, The Bucket List Company have kept in contact with me, asking if needed any help with anything and keeping me updated as well.

On the trip they really do look after you and you get great value for money. They make sure they hire the best local guides to help look after you and those that have the best local knowledge. What I liked about the company is that they help you on the trek and make sure that, if you are struggling a wee bit, they have guides there to encourage you on or go at your pace without rushing you. 

If you are looking to tick stuff of your bucket list, they are the ones to make that dream happen. I have already booked Nepal for 2020 and will be looking for a trip in 2021.

“Ok, so if you aren’t Wonder Woman or the female version of Edmund Hillary (although we did have our very own Ironwoman – unfortunately not me!) but you fancy a bit of a challenge/adventure, then this is ideal! 

This trip will challenge you mentally and physically, but because you make new amazing friends and have such a laugh – along with seeing the vibrancy of Morocco – you soon forget about how much you are struggling. The elation of achievement when you reach the top is phenomenal, and worth every foot step! 

Other companies may offer the same trip, but I doubt they give the same level of expertise from the moment you pay your deposit! Everything has been thought of, from the advice about equipment to buy/rent, to the tips for working with our amazing guides and porters.

And then there’s our Bucket list Company rep, Gareth! Gareth, aka Billy Boy Wonder, was the best expedition leader you can ask for. He was always positive, encouraging, smiling and calm, even when there was a drama or something didn’t go according to plan. Oh, and ask him about his belly dancing skills!

I would highly recommend this company, and will be booking another trip! If you have any doubts, don’t! Just book it! You won’t regret it, and will finish the week with a permanent smile, some lovely new friends and priceless memories! Thank you to everyone on our trip. And at last I can say: “Got the t-shirt and wearing it!”

“When you’re embarking on a challenge like Kilimanjaro, you want to be sure you’re booking with a company who know what they’re doing and have experience of that particular challenge. When we booked with The Bucket List Company, they let us know exactly what we needed to do, from visas to the all-important kit list.

Keith from The Bucket List Company was with us on this trek and this was his 10th time summiting Kilimanjaro. The in-country lead guide had done it over 200 times, and our particular guide had done it 176 times. With that level of experience, we were in good hands. Kilimanjaro is a very real challenge, but if you’re motivated to do it, The Bucket List Company will give you a great chance of fulfilling your dream.

We now have memories that will last a lifetime and have The Bucket List Company to thank for getting us safely to the summit. Highly recommended!”

This is by far the best experience I will ever have. If it wasn’t for Keith and his bucket list company, I would be sitting here saying “I wonder whatit’ss like to stand on the roof of Africa. Instead, I’m telling my children how daddy climbed a mountain.

Wow… what can I say? This was one of the hardest but most enjoyable trips of my life. The Bucket List Company were a pleasure to deal with from the word go, and the support Keith offered on the trip was just amazing, backed up by Whitey and his merry band of porters.

Booking with The Bucket List Company was easy – the only thing you have to think about is packing and turning up, they organise everything, leaving you to enjoy your trip without the hassle.

I cannot thank The Bucket List Company enough, and look forward to booking my next adventure to Peru shortly.
