FAQ

We are often asked why there are some safaris and tours advertised cheaper than ours.

While it’s a good idea to shop around and compare quotes, cheaper is not always the best option. There’s a reason why it’s cheaper. If you find something that looks similar but cheaper than what we’ve offered you, please ask our advice first, before you book – without obligation.

The cost of a tour is influenced by the choice of accommodation, the location and duration of game drives, the quality of the guide, and many other factors.

The Big Five (or Big 5) were traditionally considered to be the five most dangerous animals to hunt in Africa. Today, they are among the most popular animals tourists wish to see in Africa. The Big Five are the lion, the elephant, the rhino, the buffalo and the leopard.

Even if you visit a Big Five reserve, remember that no sightings are guaranteed – the animals roam freely and part of the excitement of a safari is not knowing what you will find on each game drive. Our records show that we have found the Big Five on over 80% of all our Masai Mars National Park safaris. So although seeing all of them is not a certainty, we can assure you that you will see at least some of them on your safari.

Our advice is to not only focus on the Big Five during your safari. There are so many other animals and exciting things to see that a drive on which you see none of the Big Five can still be one of the most interesting game drives! Have a go at finding some of the Little Five – elephant shrew, leopard tortoise, ant lion, buffalo weaver and rhino beetle!

Safety is a top priority for us, and we will never recommend a destination or activity we consider unsafe for tourists.

Many visitors are concerned about crime, but we have never had any problems or incidents of crime on our safaris. Crime occurs in every major city in the world, and the key is to use common sense and avoid risky situations or known problem areas.

Going on safari is also quite safe. As long as you abide by the rules and stay in your vehicle or with your safari guide, there is no need to be concerned about wild animals.

No, in fact, it costs less to book through us. Because of our buying power, we negotiate bulk discounts and, most often, our rate is slightly less than the normal rate at the lodge or hotel of your choice. We add no booking fees or credit card surcharge, and there are no hidden costs.

That means, for no extra cost whatsoever, you can make use of our local expertise and have us make all the arrangements on your behalf, ensuring a seamless trip for less effort and less money than if you book everything directly. And if something does go wrong during your stay at a lodge or hotel, you have someone in your corner to intervene on your behalf.
