Soren Pontoppidan doesn't do ordinary, so if it's an everyday, mundane touristy kind of African experience you're looking for, this larger-than-life Dane with a booming voice, big laugh and the experience to take you to the most exciting, unknown parts of this incredible continent is not your man.

If, on the other hand, you're after something a little bit different; a holiday in southern Africa which will take you down "roads less travelled" and become some of the most memorable moments of your life, African Footsteps guarantees a holiday packed with adventure, fun, excitement, excellent wine and incredible food - and stories you'll tell long after it's all over.

With several years' experience as a travel guide, Soren loves the continent of Africa almost as much as he loves showing it to newcomers. Under this expert guidance you'll be assured of staying at guest houses set in the wild and encounters with animals in their natural habitat. Soren's respect for their territory and curiosity will allow you to get up-close-and-personal with the big 5 before kicking back in front of a roaring fire while he whips up a delicious meal to make your day complete. And - while this all might sound über expensive - African Footsteps is, in fact, surprisingly affordable, and happy to work within your budget to offer you the best African experience possible.

Depending on what you're after we provide safaris, guiding and chaperoning throughout South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia. Whether you're travelling in a group or as a family, Soren will book you into a house and stay with you 24/7 as a guide, driver, facilitator and cook. Under his expert care, you will discover the real Africa.
