About Our Tours & Safaris
Carefully Planned Authentic Safaris
The word safari is synonymous with East Africa, home to game reserves, diverse wildlife and panoramic landscapes. It is a journey, an expedition of exploration, a rare opportunity to observe animals in their natural surroundings. Destinations evoke the nostalgia of yesteryears classic safaris –Maasai Mara, Serengeti, Kilimanjaro, and Nairobi. Colors flourish: pale yellow hues of the endless grasslands of the savannah; the deep red glow of an African sky aflame at twilight; dawns early rays of light on the lush green canopy that surrounds awakening wildlife.
Return to a time when the ancient Great Rift Valley, cradle of mankind, held secrets to life. Majestic animals such as lions, elephants, and giraffes inhabit the same land as the endangered black rhinoceros, buffalos and Zebra; ungainly creatures such as hippopotamus, wildebeest and warthogs feed and play amidst the graceful gazelle, leopard and cheetah.
