We have been organizing safaris in Kenya, Tansania, Rwanda and Uganda since 1999. Our experience and love for nature will make your wildlife observations in East Africa an unforgettable time of your life.

On our East Africa safaris – We take you closer to nature without disturbing and destroying it

It is not only the experience and knowledge about the places, wildlife and birds that assures our guests of an amazing time in the wilderness but our passion and love for nature and her inhabitants. Therefore our driver/guides approach animals with respect and care.

We are not rushing through the wilderness and we don’t hunt for the “Big Five. Yes we are happy to find leopards, lions, rhinos, elephants and other animals for you. With the knowledge of our safari guides you will also get interested in other wildlife since they can tell you something about them.

Everyone has a different preference how to spend the nights in the bush – choose from luxury tented camps, lodges or even mobile camping mainly in Kenya and Tanzania. Adventure and still feel safe, be close to nature with all the required respect.

Every East Africa tour is unique and tailor-made. You let us know your wishes and we create the itinerary. Most of our safaris are private safari tours, but we also have a few group safaris to join for example to the migration and to the mountains.

There are classic Africa safari tours to the well known regions like Masai Mara and Samburu, but let us also take you to more private and intimate locations. Some have very luxurious tents, some are modest, but they have in common that there are no crowds of tourist.

Even safaris in East Africa can be an adventure your safety is very important to us. While camping we get in close touch with nature and so we have to follow a few important rules. On transfers we drive carefully without risky overtakings. Our itineraries allow us time to stop and take a picture of scenic landscapes. Our safari driver/guides know where the good places for stops are. While respecting the park and security rules we will do our best to fulfill all your wishes.

From mountains to horse-back safaris, from walking in the wild to photographic tours or professional birding, yes even herpetological excursions – tell us what you like and we will make it come true.
