OUR DRIVER/GUIDES.


All our Driver/ Guides are Kenyan natives with excellent driving experience, game viewing skills and wide knowledge about East Africa’s Culture, Wildlife, Birdlife and Plants. As we are well aware that the success of our Company is dependent on the expertise of Driver/Guides, we have invested heavily in Professional training. They regularly undergo vigorous training courses in our recognized hospitality institutions in order to maintain the set standards in the Tourism Industry.


They are all English speaking with auto-mechanical skills and some with a working knowledge of Germany, French, Spanish and Italian. However, we provide Tour Leaders to accompany clients on Group Tours, Town excursions and corporate incentives.

 

OUR VEHICLES


We have set a very high standard of our Vehicles which is a clear indication of our attention to detail in terms of service delivery. We therefore operate our ground handling services using our own and sub hired vehicles for big groups which are specially designed to suit each group’s specifications.


Safari Vehicles.


We operate safaris to our tourist destinations using safari Mini Buses and Four Wheel drive Land cruisers specially built for the African terrain with pop-up roofs, extra dust proof and guaranteed window seats insured comprehensively for a maximum of 6 passengers. Land cruisers are mainly used during the rainy seasons or by special interest clients with a passion to rough- it- out in the African terrain in style.


All our Safari Vehicles are fitted with long range multi channel communication systems (2000kms) linked to our Offices to monitor the progress of our clients while on safari. The Radios are also used by Driver/Guides to communicate lucky sightings within the parks and also to promptly report any possible emergencies during the safari.


Transfer Vehicles.


Transfers to Hotels, Conference destinations and Excursions are operated using luxurious air conditioned Shuttle Buses with various passenger capacities depending on the Group sizes.

 

Car Hire.


We operate a fleet of sleek four Wheel drive Luxury and Saloon Car Rental services backed up by reliable after sales service. We offer both self drive and Chauffeur Driven Car rentals to local and foreign clients. We also specialize in V.I.P ground handling for corporate groups during conferences and special international functions.


All our vehicles are regularly serviced in our workshop to ensure clients’ safety, comfort and reliability.

 

ACCOMODATION.


East Africa offers the traveler a wide range of accommodation options to choose from. The choice of accommodation in our itineraries has been dictated by the nature of safari and the clients’ personal or group interests.


From those seeking to experience world class service and unparalleled luxury to those looking for an adventure of sleeping under canvas in the middle of nowhere in the African bush, we have explored the endless possibilities to make sure that your holiday is something you will always remember not to forget. However, full board accommodation is provided in Safari Lodges whilst Bed and Breakfast is provided in City/ Hotels. Budget Camping is basic and clients are reminded to flexibly participate in the daily chores including pitching tents and cooking.


Just open up to us about your interests and budget to that destination of your choice then allow us to tailor make a final product that will transform your dreams into reality.

 

SAFARI PROGRAMMES.


We have adopted a unique and systematic way of branding all our safari products to ensure that our clients can easily browse for their special interest products at a glance. Each and every program has been designed with a brief caption explaining the reasons for choosing such a safari. This ensures that our clients can easily get what they were exactly looking for, the best value for their money way before they come to this country to enjoy the fruits of their hard earned holiday.


As our Brand name suggests, we have factored Distance as one of our main concerns during our safari planning to ensure that we don’t force in to our clients’ throats what they can not easily swallow in terms of long distance travel without breaks.
