The world changes and with it also the way you travel and discover it.
We are less and less tourists and more hikers, adventurers who are perhaps very social but also ready to try "chills" to counterbalance the anxieties and fears brought about by the modern era.
Even in the safari area, which remains Kenya's and Africa's main tourist resource, things are changing.
There is less and less desire to experience savannah experiences as pure moments of contemplation, perhaps closed for hours in off-road vehicles, equipped with photographic lenses or binoculars.
The traditional safari still has its charm, for charity, but today's tendency is to live it in a new, more interactive way and grasp new aspects.
To this natural inclination, which is not only that of the new generations and experts of Africa, is added the desire to go "beyond its limits", experiencing adrenalinic emotions or measuring oneself and one's own abilities and reactions.
Starting from these premises, two Italian professionals and a Frenchman, Silvia Boschetti, Alberto Michieli and Jean Pierre Monti, founded "Afreeca", where in the fusion of the words "Africa" and "Free" there is the sense of a new philosophy of safari.
Afreeca, which is launched today through the afreeca. travel website, is a dynamic and innovative safari company, offering its customers a total experience, fully embracing the philosophy of travel in the folds of the Black Continent.
Jean Pierre and Alberto, expert guides, with "Kenya Safari Explorer" have been organizing safari safaris throughout Subsahariana Africa for years, Silvia has an important managerial career behind her in Italy and has chosen a new challenge.
Freedom and elimination of any kind of barrier, mental and physical, are the basis of the philosophy of Afreeca's team, which is in fact the first company to open safaris to all types of disabilities, offering experiences that although not only dedicated to them, have been designed to ensure a unique and extraordinary adventure.
Here are the programs: Afreeca initially presents eight different itineraries, and within each one there are some optional activities. For example, going "on the tracks of the Big 5" between the reserves of Borana, Solio and Masai Mara with passage to Lake Naivasha, you can decide whether to take a mountain bike ride in the heart of the Rift Valley, a ride on horseback in the savannah, a paragliding flight, or follow the traces of the lion and still meet the ancient traditions of local communities. All included in the price and without taking time and space away from the classic photographic safari and the excitement of enjoying an aperitif at sunset or a boat trip on the lake.
This is the case for the other adventures in Kenya, such as the one dedicated to nature and biodiversity paradises, trekking on Mount Kenya, the exciting trail of George Adamson and his wife Joy, author of "Nata Libera", in places where they lived with their lions and the exclusive tour of the missions of the Consolata and their incredible works of solidarity in the heart of Kenya.
Each of these programmes brings with them the possibility of integrating activities, experiences, insights and entertainment. Not to mention the social address: a part of the earnings from each safari "package" will be allocated to environmental associations, projects for people or equatorial fauna.
In addition to Kenya, Afreeca also offers safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana (with rafting on Victoria waterfalls), Rwanda in the forests of the last gorillas, and Zambia and Zimbabwe retracing the events of Livingstone and Stanley.
The safari is an experience that can change life - the three founders explain - it is certainly able to improve it. Viver it in a conscious, profound and close way to one's passions and the natural propensity that everyone has to go beyond their own limits, be they physical or intellectual, can give incomparable emotions ".
