Choosing what type of safari you wish to take is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. A journey to Africa is a once in a lifetime trip and you should spend your time on this amazing continent doing exactly what interests you in the environment and accommodation you prefer.
When chosing a safari circuit it is important to factor in your budget, timeframe and your particular interests. To make it easy for you, we have put up some sample Safaris to guide you to the right direction. Please remember that unlike most operators all our safaris are tailor made so we are able to make any changes you would like to the itinerary without the extra costs associated with tailor made travel. As we are here and you are dealing directly with the us, we are able to pass those savings on to our clients. An extra day in the Mara, bird watching in Naivasha or maybe you wish to spend an extra few days in Nairobi? When you contact us we will work with you to design a safari that perfect matches your interests and will guide you in the right direction. In order to help you make a choice we have divided our safaris by country and interest and then into three categories to chose from:
Luxury safaris are the top of the range featuring luxury camps built in harmony with the landscape yet offering an unparalleled degree of pampering and luxury during your safari. These lodges or tented camps are boutique hotels in their own right and are perfect for those who wish to experience the magic of Africa with the ultimate in comfort and pampering. Do not be surprised to see crystal chandeliers under your dining tent, have a spa massage and be served in your tent by your private butler. This is an option we recommend when you have the budget for it, you are here to celebrate a special occasion like a honeymoon or anniversary or if you are a person that enjoys world class architecture and interiors in a most unusual setting.
Our Classic safaris always feature excellent accommodation of superior standards. The East African tradition of hospitality is perfectly shown in the hotel standards you will encounter. You will find that accommodation at this level is the equivalent of a 4 star hotel with en- suite bathrooms, great dining experiences and lodges or tented camps built in sympathy with the local environment. This is a great alternative if your main interest is seeing the wildlife and having a safari experience but at the same time you want the comforts of en-suite bathrooms, comfortable beds and the attractions and amenities of a lodge or tented camp of this standard.
What we consider advernture safaris would for most campers be considered luxury! Although you sleep in tents, you have the luxury of camp assistants, cooks who ensure that your safari is completely ready. You will have all meals cooked, the tents set up for you and while you are expected to help a little, most of the work is done for you. Transport is in overland trucks or safari buses kitted with all the gear you need. You will camp on campsites in the game reserves which are protected by Maasais, and often Electric fence. For those of you who are young or young at heart this is a fantastic way to experience the magic of African bush·dust and all!
