We use our purpose-built overland vehicles for the duration of this trip. It is important to note that while our vehicles are not air-conditioned, all windows do open to allow for fresh air. But please be aware that road travel in Africa comes with its fair share of dust, so while curtains are fitted to minimize the sun shine, it can get hot and windy.
This itinerary features some long travel days which can be exacerbated by bumpy African roads. It is recommended that you pay close attention to our given approximations of distance and driving hours.
Our overland safaris do not necessitate exceptional fitness levels, but a general level of physical movement is required. For example, you need to judge yourself physically fit enough to handle.
Some passengers on this trip may have been travelling together prior to the start of your trip.

To see the wild animals of Africa in their native habitat requires a certain amount of roughing it, but that is the only way to see them in the wild. The people were friendly and the food was amazingly good, probably because it was all grown fresh locally.

A great introduction to both Kenya and Tanzania and an opportunity to see an abundance of wildlife! Within the first three days we saw giraffe, zebra, leopard, elephant, warthogs (galore), colobus monkeys, white rhinoceros etc. A great trip for photographers and wildlife warriors alike. Bring your patience and you are sure to be rewarded. But be aware that travel times and driving distances are long, so be prepared for long periods of inactivity. The accommodation on this trip is truly comfortable, and in some cases, even luxurious.
