How it works
We can put together an itinerary to fit any time frame or budget. Whether you've got some fixed plans and need help with the detail, or don't know where to start, here's how we can help:
We'll talk about what your dream African adventure looks like, how much time you have, and your budget.
We'll discuss any places to go or things to do that you've already got in mind and send you a few suggestions of our own.
When you've decided what you want to see and do, we'll put together the perfect itinerary that covers all the destinations you're most excited about, and moves at just the right pace. We'll select the accommodations that are right for you, and we'll make any adjustments until you're confident it's the perfect itinerary for you.
When you're happy with your trip and the cost, we'll get your adventure set up, make all the bookings and reservations, and provide all the pre-travel information you need.
Once you're on the ground in Africa, we'll be here to look after you every step of the way.
Booking a trip with us
A single point of payment
When you book a trip to East Africa, you'll be contracting a number of different suppliers, from hotels and lodges to tour operators and airlines.
All of these suppliers have different payment terms and cancellation policies.
The finance infrastructure in East Africa is extremely under-developed, this means making payments to these suppliers can be a long, complicated process.
If you're managing this yourself, it can be extremely stressful. If you're planning a multi-country trip, it gets even more painful.
If you book through us, we'll take care of all of that for you.
Simple payment process
To secure your trip with us, you just need to pay a deposit (typically 20%) to secure the arrangements.
Your balance will be due 2 months prior to departure. At this point, you will have received all of your final travel documentation.
And that's it.
No complicated transfers to multiple suppliers, or awkward re-routes to local East African accounts.
Note: if you have booked gorilla trekking in Uganda, the gorilla trekking permits will need to be paid along with the deposit.
