Make 2015 the year you transform your life. Whether you’ve always wanted to experience high adrenaline adventures or have been craving to volunteer abroad, Africa is your next must-visit destination for 2015.

Below are the top 5 life-changing adventures to experience in Africa this new year:

1. Volunteer with the people and / or wildlife of Africa: Have you always dreamed of volunteering abroad? Make 2015 the year you make a difference in the lives of others by volunteering in a field of your interest in Africa. Whether you’re interested in helping orphaned children, building a Habitat for Humanity home, providing healthcare and medical support, rehabilitating wildlife, or working with youth development, there are a wide spectrum of excellent programs and projects for you to volunteer with. One of our favorite volunteer organizations in Africa is African Impact, which runs dozens of exceptional volunteer programs in a variety of different categories.

2. Bond with your family among nature on an unforgettable safari: If it’s been a while since your last family vacation or you’re looking to experience something completely different from your previous family vacations, then a trip to Africa’s exotic wildernesses is a must for you in 2015. While on an African family safari vacation, you’ll have the opportunity to experience one of the world’s most stunning natural frontiers, unique cultures, and incredible adventures with the ones you love the most. As someone who has taken my family to Africa each year, I can assure you that there is nothing more powerful than building memories with my family in nature and interacting with new and unique cultures.

3. Come face to face with the world’s most feared apex predator: Hollywood has made a monster out of it. The Discovery Channel has dedicated an entire week to it. There is no doubt that the great white shark is one of the world’s most feared creatures and in South Africa, you have the opportunity to actually get in the water with one . . . On a South Africa shark cage diving tour, you will plunge beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean and come face to face with the great white shark, feeling one of the biggest jolts of adrenaline you could imagine.

4. Witness one of the world’s most captivating natural phenomena, the Great Migration: Acclaimed as the most spectacular natural spectacle in the world, the wildlife Great Migration throughout Tanzania and part of Kenya is an absolute must on any adventurists’ bucket list. The migration of hundreds of thousands of zebra and millions of wildebeest (as well as thousands of lurking predators) is actually a loop that passes through parts of the southwestern border of Kenya and the Serengeti Plains of Tanzania.  Throughout the year, this massive herd of wildlife follows the rains through the Grumeti Reserve, Masai Mara, Ngorongoro Crater region, and the Serengeti.

5. Embark on an interactive adventure with the Sans Bushmen of Botswana: An ancient and fascinating tribe, the Sans Bushmen of Botswana still uphold their centuries-old traditions. Visitors on a Botswana safari vacation can embark on interactive bushwalks with the Sans people to learn about their hunting and tracking methods, as well as traditional survival skills, tribal weaponry, and the laws of nature. This is an opportunity that very few in this world will ever experience.
