Explorative | Experiential | Dynamic
Our Safari Specialist Amelia Adamson, originally hailing from Portland, Oregon, has been with Extraordinary Journeys for five years and is currently based in Charlottesville. Her first encounter with Africa was through Semester at Sea—a multi-country ship-based study abroad program where she got to explore South Africa and Namibia, amongst many other countries around the world, by sea. Amelia has now visited over 35 countries, including extensive travel throughout Africa on safari. Her teammates describe her travel planning style as collaborative, adventurous, and thorough and say she’s always optimistic, fun-loving, and genuine. Amelia is an active traveler who loves to experience everything each destination offers and says, “I always feel like there’s more to see and a reason to come back!”
My Greatest Adventure
Canoeing on the Zambezi river with pods of hundreds of hippos.
My Favorite Destinations
I’m not sure if I have a hard favorite destination! Every new place I visit tends to give me a whole new opinion on that front but Rwanda is definitely up there. The city of Kigali has so much to offer in itself and seeing the gorillas in the wild is still my favorite animal viewing experience to date! Namibia is also a really special country. The unfathomably vast landscapes are shocking to experience and the star gazing there is incredible.
