    I had such a great time. Phillips is an amazing tour leader, always there for you, and willing to help where she can - from helping put up tents, to cooking for us, to telling us where the best chappatis are. The tour is awesome. If you're looking to hit... Read more

    4.5 - Excellent

    Fantastic tour with great support from the guides and drivers. Started with the mountain gorilla trek, then safaris including the Masai Mara and Serengeti. Finished at the beautiful island of Zanzibar. Fond memories that will last forever.

Questions & Answers

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

    • 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,
      Personal spending money,
      Visas.

      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…
