Who wants to go on an African adventure?
This year has been crazy. I left my job, I’ve drove Scotland’s North Coast 500, been to my first Glastonbury Festival, taken a cheeky trip to Portugal and a few days ago I just got back from a 2-week island hopping trip in Hawai’i. Backpacked through Malawi and Zambia and led 5 tours through Uganda, Rwanda & the DRC, Kenya and Tanzania.
The 2017 Rock My Adventure tours have been amazing. I’ve met and travelled with so many cool people – and honestly, I couldn’t have asked for better groups who were up for all the adventures I threw at them!! It’s been none stop but so much fun!
The feedback I’ve had has been really wonderful and this year I even had 2 of the 7 from the Rock My Kenya Adventure in 2016, come back and join me for the trips in Uganda, Rwanda & the DRC and Tanzania & Zanzibar in 2017!
But now it’s time to look forward to 2018! And have I got some amazing adventures lined up for you! I’ve got 10 trips to Uganda, Rwanda, DRC, Kenya, Tanzania, Morocco, Zambia, Botswana, Malawi and Namibia.
Some of the trips are replicas of the 2017 trips, some are brand new and some are a mix! As some of you know, I love festivals, music and dancing, so I’ve incorporated these into a couple of the trips! One of the Kenya trips includes the super cool Sauti za Busara Festival in Zanzibar and the legendary Lake of Stars Festival in Malawi.

What is Rock My Adventure?
For those of you who don’t know what these tours are all about, here’s a little bit
Rock My Adventure is a tour company offering small group adventure trips for awesome people – basically!
The tours are highly personalised, experiential and culturally immersive trips, designed to show you a rounded portrayal of the countries we visit and leave you with memories that will last a life time.
Our aim is to literally ‘rock your adventure’ and make sure you have the most amazing experience on your trip by organising an epic itinerary at an affordable price and without the stress of planning, booking and organising everything yourself.
All Rock My Adventure trips are planned by me, Helen in Wonderlust (Travel Blogger and former Event & Experiential Marketing Manager). I’ve been travelling through Africa on and off for the last 9 years and have guided trips through the Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Rwanda, Uganda and the DRC.
I love to travel all over the world, but it’s Africa that holds the special place in my heart and I started this blog, first and foremost to encourage and help others travel to Africa. I want to show you a different side of Africa, not the Africa you see in the media but the adventurous, beautiful, wild and real Africa I know and love.
These trips are PERFECT for solo travellers, groups of friends and couples alike and for those who are short on time and want to pack a lot into their limited (and precious) time off work.
However, these aren’t typical ‘tours’. They’re fun and laid-back group trips, that are similar to an independent backpacking trip, with some free time to explore and do your own thing, but with a group of friends built in – the best of both worlds!
I also provide comprehensive pre-departure information and support to help you get prepared for your trip!

Feedback for Rock My Adventure
Wondering what it’s like to come on a Rock My Adventure trip? Here’s what others have to say!
Rock My Tanzania & Zanzibar Adventure – 2017
“This trip is definitely one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made in my life!!” (Sharmi, Malaysia)
“The trip went beyond my expectations. I feel the soul of the trip was Helen. Having a guide that is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, sweet and energetic is very important.” (Nayeli, Mexico/USA)
“I would like to thank you for two of the most extraordinary trips I have ever had the joy of experiencing. As I review my photos I feel so overwhelmed. I had the pleasure to meet some amazing people thanks to you. We had great times just sitting around and joking with each other. If anyone is in doubt about booking a tour through Rock My Adventure, don’t hesitate, you’ll never regret it . Thank you, Helen. You are amazing! ❤️ Go and you will thank me afterwards.” (Oana, Switzerland)
Rock My Kenya Adventure – 2017
“I had the best time ever on the trip & it was so much fun traveling with you! It was everything I had hoped for and more! It 100% met my expectations. I love the fact that your trips are more unique than a normal tour operator. I enjoyed being taken out of my comfort zone in some places and seeing some really different sides of Kenya. I enjoyed the fact that we were made to feel so at home everywhere we went and I’m sure that was helped by the fact you’ve obviously created a lot of meaningful friendships in the country during your time travelling there. It felt like we got a more unique experience than you would get with usual tour operator. I think you make a fantastic guide and your passion for the country definitely shows and adds to the experience.” (Sarah, UK)
“Thank you for one of the best two weeks of my life. By far the most incredible holiday I’ve ever been on. It was run so brilliantly by you and honestly, I had so much fun. I won’t forget some of our hilarious nights out.” (Allanagh, UK)
“This is the best thing I could have done for myself to boost my confidence. It was honestly the best thing I have ever done in my life, bar none. I have made genuine friends that I’m already planning to meet with again. Take me with you everywhere you go…..everywhere! Thank you so much for doing the job you do, I can’t explain how amazing this trip was.” (Kayleigh, UK)
Rock My Uganda, Rwanda & DRC Adventure – 2017
“Helen is one of those people who will make any situation really fun. This girl could make a tour through my mildewy basement seem like a blast, so having her introduce me to sub-Saharan Africa was pretty much the best thing ever!!” (Silvia, Norway/USA)
If you’d like to get a full overview, have a read of Silvia’s blog (Heart My Backpack), as she’s done a full review on the Uganda, Rwanda and DRC tour. I asked her to come along, not as a blogger, but as a participant, to enjoy and just be brutally honest when she wrote about it and here’s what she thought.
“This was everything I hoped for and more. If the plane had crashed on the way home, I would have died happy!” (Natalie, Northern Ireland)
“You showed me “Africa” the real Africa, the people, the villages, the wildlife! I didn’t want hotels, complexes, swimming pools! I want to see the world, the real world, how other people live, the real Africa!! I got the whole package, the reality, the beauty, the wonder! You left me wanting more and eager that see more of what the amazing Africa has to offer! Second trip with you! I keep coming back so clearly I enjoy them!” (Karen, UK)
Rock My Kenya Adventure – 2016
“Everything was amazing! I learned so many things!” (Oana, Switzerland)
“It was an amazing trip from start to end. I loved every moment and made friends for life.” (Debbie, UK)
“Africa is not always the easiest place to travel around, and after 3 months of backpacking I was all ready to give my brain a break from travel planning, so it was definitely a relief to have Helen come in and manage all that! I like her tour because it fit me – it was a small group tour, just 8 of us which is a nice number to make new friends and get to know everyone yet have our own thing, and it was a good mix of fancier stuff and indie backpacking. You just might see us on the next tours because we are all game for round 2 with Helen! Definitely a 5 star review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!“ (Jac, Singapore)
“I’ve a lot to thank my African adventure for, it truely did help me find myself and has given me the confidence to just go see the world. I never wanted to leave!!! You’ll have the most amazing experience!!!” (Karen, UK)
“It was a great introduction into Africa travel, before I set out solo travelling. Also as I traveled solo and shared experiences in Kenya with people I was meeting, I sounded like a seasoned solo traveler thanks to you. I did not know what to expect but I think I understand Kenya pretty well now. I think you were able to portray and pass on your infectious love of Kenya to us all and I am forever grateful! Asante!” (Christina, USA)
