    5.0 - Excellent

    As an older couple we were taken care of very well,on what is usually a young person's trip.We had also trainee guide Troy Walton with us and he did excellent job when my husband cut his finger rather badly.Overall we enjoyed the trip a lot,even it was a bit hard for us.Satisfied with all aspects of it and would definately recommend this company.

Questions & Answers

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

    • What is the local payment for?

      The local payment is a separate payment from the initial price you pay before you leave.

      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 some 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. You will find our tour prices are some of the most affordable in the market.

      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 book.

    • 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.

    • Is the 3 day Zanzibar trip included in this trip cost, if its optional then, how much is it ? Please clarify.

      Zanzibar isn't included. Its a four night/five day stay now costing £180 including the return ferry, four nights B&B, and transfers on the island including a spice tour so good value, and everyone does usually select this option.

      Of the highlights, what is included is the following:
      • Masai Mara
      • Ngorongoro Crater
      • The Serengeti National Park
      • South Luangwa National Park
      • Hwange National Park
      • Chobe National Park - game cruise
      • Lake Nakuru

      Otherwise the other main excursions can be seen in the optional excursion list. :)

    • Carlos4th June 2018
      Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
