Description of Kenya and Tanzania safaris

This ten day safari tour of two of East Africa's most wildlife abundant countries, Kenya and Tanzania, is a must for travellers wishing to take life by the scruff of the neck.

Marrying the best-loved locations of both countries provides a unique and exciting experience that can be tailored to suit your interests and budget. From safari lodges and tented camps to luxury boutique accommodation, this is your tour and we want you to feel comfortable and engaged every step of the way.

If you got designs on observing the great migration, when millions of wildebeest cross the Mara River and attempt to evade top predators, then any time between June and October is going to draw dramatic displays. Game drives in the Masai Mara, close to the Serengeti in Tanzania, are simply unforgettable.

We suggest starting the itinerary in Nairobi and completing in Arusha via with Lake Manyara or Lake Nakura however, this is your trip so if you fancy journeying in the opposite direction then just let us know. The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire and Amboseli National Park can all be experienced on a safari tour of Kenya and Tanzania – get in touch today and find out how we can turn your East African safari dreams into reality.

Responsible tourism

Kenya and Tanzania safaris

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

Responsible tourism is a core responsibility and emphasis of conservation is not negotiable as this is the only way we can conserve the environment for future generations in a sustainable way. During the entire safari, the guide is encouraged to brief you on the following points:

- No littering or throwing garbage out of the vehicle; this help in keeping the park clean and everything you don't need should be put the seat pockets. Driver guide will dispose at the lodge who have better way dispose the garbage.
- No feeding of wild animals. This is important to retain natural behaviour in their natural habitat.
- No off-roading driving off the designated tracks especially in parks
- Animals have the right of the way and should never block their way; you are the intruder in their territory

In the parks, our guides exhibit utmost respect for wildlife and nature by ensuring that they strictly adhere to park rules and regulations as well as our internal Travel Code. For example, we keep a respective distance from wildlife, we do not stampede game, minimize on noise as well as respect other visitors.

Our overall goal is to ensure the long term sustainability of the environment which is also the sure way to ensure our own business survival.

Community

Human-wildlife conflicts is something that must be dealt with as population increases to reduce competition and encourage conservation. This cannot be achieved unless the local communities around conservation areas benefit from it. Being aware of this, we have policies and projects that benefit the local communities:

- All our itineraries include a cultural tour of the local villages around the parks. This help the community to benefit from fee they charged and sell their artifacts to visitors thus improving their way of life.

- We also have donations to local schools and hospitals and we also encourage visitors to support by donating anything they may wish to during the visit to the said institutions. This helps the entire community appreciate and benefit from tourism and tourists visiting their areas thus encouraging them to conserve their natural heritage.

We always ensure that we properly brief our guests with regards to the social and political situation in the destinations to be visited. For example, the Coastal region in Kenya is predominantly Muslim and so, especially for cultural/village visits where the guests will interact with the local people, we encourage our guests to dress up more in respect of local culture.

For our pastoralist communities such as Samburu and Masai, who incidentally occupy major wildlife areas, we encourage our guests to visit the villages. This offers a direct benefit to the communities as they charge some entrance fee. We also discourage our guests from giving sweets/pens/books to children on the roadside. This has been proven to contribute to absenteeism from school as well as creating a begging culture. We prefer our guests to give these items as a donation to local schools directly. During the visits the villages, our guests have the opportunity to buy locally made souvenirs as well as directly support the community through contributing to social amenities such as schools, dispensaries and water projects.

We are happy to pass on school material donations such as books, pens, pencils etc. to children at local schools. Visiting a school is on a request basis (mainly for professional teachers on the trip) and arranged in advance before the tour so that we can check with the school schedule etc.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Our guide Musa was absolutely amazing. We saw so many wonderful animals and he struck such a perfect balance between giving us the best experience possible and respecting the animals.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


To request Musa!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, Kenyan owned and operated. Also our guide said he was very well treated
by his boss and the company. We also made stops at locally owned and
operated souvenir places but were not pressured to buy. The only change I
would make is fewer bottles of water and more big jugs to refill reusable water bottles.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Absolutely phenomenal, wouldn’t change anything.
