Is this trip right for you?

  • This itinerary features some long travel days, which can be exacerbated by bumpy African roads. It is recommended that you pay close attention to the given approximations of driving hours.
  • As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.

Excellent eco trip

This trip exceeded my expectations. The guides on the drivers were top-notch. Every transfer went smoothly. We never had to wait, which was our concern. Heading into east Africa. But everything went off without a hitch. The accommodations were amazing and made me feel like I was on a movie set most nights Our guide, Steve was calm and informative and if he didn’t have the answer for something he found it and gave it to you the next day the food was excellent and I can’t even imagine that they cooked such delicious nutritious meals in the middle of nowhere like the Serengeti . I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wanted to enjoy east Africa with the perks of some luxury.

Our Premium Kenya and Tanzania trip exceeded our expectations. Every day had memorable highlights. The small group number made for flexibility depending on personal interests and game sightings. We are interested in birds and our driver was always on the lookout for possible sightings. While many roads are very rough, the rewards are definitely worth it. This was one of the best trips ever.

13th intrepid tour and loved Tanzania. Recommended but be prepared for rough roads, dust and heat. Lots of opportunity to see wildlife. Would seek clarification about where herds are located before investigating in hot air balloon. Expensive experience and can be disappointing.
