    5.0 - Excellent

    I did the 30 day tour With Phillipa and our driver Stephen. It was truly the trip of a lifetime, Phillipa was so good at making everyone aware of what to expect when to expect it and how to handle it. She has a fantastic pallet so all the meals she (we) provided were outrageously delicious. The groups aged from 19 to 55 with me being the oldest and I felt so welcome and included that I strongly suggest to all my friends to use Absolute if when they plan to go. Steve our driver was so professional and courteous and I enjoyed my time visiting with him as well. I'm not a good passenger but never felt unsafe or apprehensive with him behind the wheel. The whole adventure was outstanding and completely off the charts. I'm in the process of saving up to do the other portions of the trip with them in the future. If you are interested in seeing Africa up close and safely with way too much fun tied in then this is the way to go...

    4.5 - Excellent

    A 73 day overland tour, through a whooping 10 countries. Starting in Nairobi and finishing in Cape Town (tour name, Absolute Safari). This tour really is an incredible way to see some of Africa and a fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal with the animals, while enjoy the dramatic landscapes, unique to Africa. Absolute Africa have many years of experience doing these tours and it refreshing to travel with a company whose passion for the dark continent was greater then their interest in your $$$. Amazing value for money with witty, well informed guides and drivers. Everyday brought another adventure. I can highly recommend this trip. A few of my personal highlights from the trip, Gorilla trekking, The Savannah, Rhino trekking, The Namib Desert and watching the changing scenery and animals from an open-side safari truck. Amazing!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • February 19, 2016

      When is the best time to view the migration?

      The prime time to visit the Serengeti in Tanzania is usually regarded as being from late November through to March when the big herds of wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle and zebra head on to the southern plains of the Serengeti.

      To get the best viewing on the other hand in Kenya's Masai Mara July through to September are usually regarded as the best months.

    • February 15, 2016

      What is the local payment?

      The local payment is a separate payment from the initial price you pay before you leave. If a local payment is required it will be shown with the trip price.

      This second payment is made in Africa at the start of your trip. It is payable in USD.

      The local payment provides us with the means for expenses that need to be paid in cash to local businesses en route to be arranged in the most cost effective manner possible, a saving we can then pass on to you. It also means we can operate in a way that directly supports local businesses and wildlife authorities as we travel.

      Local Payment will not be changed once you have booked your travel arrangements.
