AFE Adventures
Creating hope since 2015

AFE was launched in 2015 by two California artists as a way to support elephant rescue through the sale of art. While on the road, it quickly became apparent that compassionate people around the world are hungry to taste adventure and connection in a way that supports native species, indigenous communities and sustainable practices. 

 

AFE Adventures was born to meet and exceed those desires. Drawing on 40+ years of combined travel and hospitality experience, every AFE small group departure has been designed for people who love activity, but crave space to reflect. Each curated experience crafted to give our guests an authentic, humane and unforgettable journey.

Friendly hosts, rescued elephants, community projects and breathtaking vistas ensure memories that will warm the soul for years to come. 

We can't wait to welcome you. 

"I am not the same, having seen the moon shine from the other side of the world." Mary Anne Radmacher
