Kilimanjaro Shira Route

Just got back from Mt. Kilimanjaro with my son (we both made it to the peak) and the experience exceeded my expectations in every regard. It was better that I had hoped for and I want to thank you very much for all the assistance, hand holding, and help before the trip. I had never done anything like this, but I can't wait to try it again.

Kenya Family Adventure

It would be hard to equal the experience of travelling as a family through the game parks of Kenya. The moments of seeing wildlife up close and in the wild are spellbounding and our history shows that children truly thrive from the experience. Yet, even the road journeys between the parks are of great interest as we witness the contrasting landscapes and the local communities who live among them. The villages of the Masai and Samburu people will provide an intriguing insight into cultures whose traditional lifestyles still abound. Our carefully selected lodges, hotels and permanent campsites add to the flavour of the journey with their positioning in the parks and the authentic safari ambience they exude. On return home you'll appreciate the valuable lessons your younger travellers will have taken away from the experience including things such as the techniques used by the Masai to obtain their water, the difference between a Rothschild, Reticulated and a Masai Giraffe and why countries such as Kenya need to be preserved for future generations to enjoy.
