Things to note

All game viewing is done at your own risk. We will require a signed liability waiver prior to travel.

We do not recommend this holiday to people with serious back problems, as it can be quite rough on some East Africa roads and game park trails.

Safari mini-buses, for between destinations and game drives have a pop-up roof for easy game viewing and photography. We limit each vehicle to a maximum of six people, ensuring you’ll always have a window seat.

Due to limited capacity on safari vehicles and flights, your suitcase must be soft-sided.

Some minor changes in your daily itinerary may be expected due to wildlife migrations and viewing.
