    WHY CHOOSE US?


    1. Knowledge

     

    We have been around; we have guided, driven, walked, paddled, flown, quad-biked, cruised and slept under the stars in many parts of East Africa. We have also made friendships and associated with thousands of travellers all over the world and now we are able to share our network and our knowledge with you so that you can enjoy the beauty, the inspiration, the rejuvenation and the excitement that only East Africa's wildlife, her people and wild places can.

     

    The internet is a wonderful thing but it is also overwhelming and misleading, we know these places and lodges intimately - so let us unscramble the information overload and provide you with the best solutions.

     

    2. Price

     

    We understand that travel is expensive and it is our mission to provide you with the best experience for what you are willing to spend. In the safari world, like everywhere, you get what you pay for. If you are given a comparative itinerary which is considerably cheaper there will be a good (or usually bad) reason... On the whole we do encourage our clients to spend upwards for the safari or gameviewing portion of a trip - in the short time that you are here, we want you to see as much as possible! The better reserves charge more for game viewing - not necessarily for accommodation.

     

    The internet is a powerful source of information and all the specials and offers provided to you online are also provided to us in the travel industry to pass on to you - you pay the same price whether you book yourself online or through us. We do our utmost to make you aware of every item that is included and not included in an itinerary.

     

    3. Conservation

     

    We are genuinley passionate about and pro-active in conservation. The threats which face wildlife and wild places in East Africa are many and complex! In order to preserve our planet for future generations we need to take action and support effective organizations that are focused on this. A portion of funds from every trip booked with us, is taken out of our pockets for conservation. Over the last few years we have donated funds for lion collaring and monitoring programs, we have donated funds towards rhino conservation and translocation, we have given numerous items to conservation charities and we continue to forge relations with conservation bodies that are doing good work in East Africa.

     

    4. Let us do the legwork

     

    Planning flights, transfers, waiting for availability, talking on the phone, searching the internet all takes time - so let us do it for you! That is what we are here for. It is easy enough booking a week's holiday at a beach resort but putting together a complex safari itinerary and connecting the dots is what we are good at.
