Nolting, who was born in Minneapolis, fell in love with Africa and founded the Africa Adventure Company after spending two years traveling the continent. Throughout his more than 30 years in the business, Nolting has established relationships with lodge owners and local guides who provide insights about the nature and wildlife. His frequent trips with his teenage sons give him a special perspective on what makes family safaris successful.
"I have worked with Mark Nolting for more than 20 years on 14 safaris. He is always accessible for consultation, highly knowledgeable about the countries, camps, and guides he recommends, and provides a detailed itinerary that guides me through every aspect of the trip. I attribute my love of traveling to Africa to Mark, because he shares the continent with me through his eyes. His arrangements ensure that I am comfortable, safe, and have the ultimate experience on each and every trip." - Ronnie Cantor
