With or without a guide book, the best source of information is someone who has been there recently. Our past clients are a mine of information and many of them send us feedback on arriving home after a most memorable safari. Click Customer comments to see some of the comments. Many of them have allowed us to pass their e-mail contacts to potential clients to share their experiences. Feel free to request for this - to get to hear "the inside story"
Our scope is currently limited to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. This is no coincidence as we purpose to focus on what we know and what we do best. Our guiding principle is to work with each client, family and group in an individual way. We encourage you to work with us, discussing your interests, style of travel, budget, time frame and any other factors that would influence your trip - to come up with an itinerary best suited to you, your family or group. Noting that some have said that travel to Africa is not inexpensive, our tours offer the best value for your money.
Our vehicles are 7-seater custom safari minibuses and 4x4 Land cruisers with pop-up roof ideal for game viewing and sightseeing. The Vehicles are well maintained to provide maximum level of comfort and safety and are fitted with HF long range radios for easy communication. The vehicles are fully equipped with cool-boxes and first aid kits, as well as guide books on wildlife, birds and plants of East Africa.
We know this for a fact! The success of your safari will largely depend on your driver/guide. It is because of this that we have a great team of carefully selected driver/guides, well trained and experienced and with a vast knowledge of the wildlife and animal behavior as well as the local fauna and flora. We have a wide range of multilingual driver/guides who can communicate in English, German, Spanish and French or all.
To make it is easy and convenient for the traveller, all our safaris depart daily with a minimum of 2 persons booking. We do this to allow our itineraries/safaris fit into your schedule, and prices are thus based on two persons and will go down with 3 and more participants. Please provide us with this information during your first enquiry to help us send you a most appropriate quotation.
At the start of your safari, either Doc, or one of our tour consultants will take time to meet you preferably at our office or whenever possible to introduce your driver/guide and take you through the safari program explaining what to expect while on the safari, provide background information and materials, discuss the dos and don'ts as well as answer any last minute questions that you may have.
Accommodation is valid and will greatly depend on your budget. There are several types ranging from 5-star hotels/lodges and luxury tented camps to the more basic adventurous camping for those who want to "rough it". We can and will help you choose from the list when planning your trip. At whatever level, we provide the very best for our guests.
In case of Emergency
We provide free membership with Flying Doctors' Society of Africa to all our clients while on safari with us. This will offer you, the traveler security in the knowledge that should a medical emergency arise, the Flying Doctors Service and evacuation to a reputable hospital are just a call away. This service covers only rescue and we recommend that you take out all of the necessary Travel/Medical Insurance before commencing on your journey.
