Why Us

Specialist Experience
• With experience of managing high-end safari lodges across East Africa we understand the detailed logistics of African Safaris, the best times to see game, what activities to do and how to get the most out of each trip.

• By living and working in Africa for over ten years the owners understand the logistical challenges of operating here and how these can been overcome – to the best of our ability!

• By concentrating solely within Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda we are countrywide specialists, putting all our efforts into this idyllic corner of the African continent.

• For our destinations, we have had the pleasure of personally visiting each lodge and trying each activity on offer – not only does this make us incredibly lucky, it also means that our recommendations come from direct experience, so you know that you are getting the best.

• Our prices are highly competitive in the market for the standard and service provided. We also offer a price guarantee, so if you are able to find a company offering the same itinerary and service at a lower cost, we will be happy to match it.
