    It was obvious on my tour that Absolute Africa cares very little for Africa. This tour rarely involved local experiences- not because it was a group tour but because the guides do not care to do anything local. They care about getting on the truck,... Show more

    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)... Show more

FAQs

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • How much will this tour really cost me?

      The costs to consider when travelling overland are:

      Safari price & Local payment,
      Optional excursions,

      We are always very transparent about what a tour will cost and are happy to go through personal, tailored budgets to give you a very realistic idea of what you will spend on your tour - whether you are an adrenaline junkie, souvenir-shopaholic or travelling on a shoestring…

    • Where are we going to stay on this trip? Does it have toilets and showers?

      On this trip we stay at designated campsites every night. They all have showers and toilets, usually with hot water too.

      The main age range of people on our trips is 20 to 40.
