A1: Practically all our safaris are customized to individual groups according to bookings making them individual group safaris however there are instances when one wishes to join a group; in those cases we can make such an arrangement for our client depending on seat availability and date of travel. For those joining groups we would normally suggest the 3 Days Masai Mara Safari, 4 days Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru Tour, 2 Days and 3 Days Tsavo Tour and overnight trips to Mount Kenya as these are popular trips that run every other day.

A2: On off-road trips we use 4x4 wheel drive vehicles depending on the size of the group and tour cost. For one or two individuals we use smaller SUVs unless clients specifically require larger vehicles like those who are on photographic or birding tours where we use the larger Toyota Land cruiser or the Land Rover. All the vehicles for game viewing have pop-up roofs to facilitate better game sighting, viewing and photography. Clients on a “shoe-string budget” might get a better deal when we provide them with minibuses that seat eight with open hatches for better game viewing.

A3: Safaris can be undertaken in East Africa throughout the year with the best seasons being during the warmer seasons when the sun is at the equator mainly between December to February and July to September. The other months are cooler with tropical storms sometimes ruining the game viewing, mountain climbing or beach holidays. The prices at these low hotel occupancy seasons however results in bargains for the traveler as we are able to offer rates that are lower to compensate for the reduced hotel prices.

A4: January, February, August and September (Peak Mountain Climbing Season)
The three months are good for mountain hiking, the period is just after the short rain season, the skies are clear and the views from the mountains are fantastic.

March to July (Low Season for Mountain Climbing)
This is the long rainy season, you can still hike but remember to be dressed for the weather and please be concerned about your safety as the paths are slippery during this period. There is not much to see except the challenge that is posed by the wet climb. Tropical rain comes in bursts and lasts a few hours, mostly in the mornings and afternoons. The rains freshen up the nature and often enhance the trekking experience. Note that hiking is not closed durring the wet season and that there are fewer people climbing these three East African Mountains; namely Mt Kenya, Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Rwenzori.

November and December (Shoulder Mountain Climbing Season)
This is the short rainy season in East Africa but with the climate change that is being experienced you just might be lucky to find the mountains dry. The rains during this period are experienced at short intervals with one or two days going without rain.

A5: During the long rains and short rains their are fewer visitors and so the prices come tumbling down. This is the best time to travel for the the bargainer. Hotel prices are down and tour operators offer competitive prices. This period is between March and June covering the long rains period and between October and November during the short rains. The downside on Wildlife Safaris is that it is harder to spot the animals because of the long grass and the continual rains plus it is easier to get stuck while on game drives. The up-side is that there are fewer crowds and so you have the wilderness all to yourself.

Kenya enjoys a mild tropical climate. The average annual temperature for the capital city, Nairobi (altitude 4,980 feet) is 77ºF maximum and 56ºF minimum. The coastal town of Mombasa (altitude 50 feet) is 86ºF maximum and 73ºF minimum. There is plenty of sunshine all the year round and summer clothes are worn throughout the year. However, it is usually cool at night and early in the morning. The long rains occur from April to June and short rains from October to December. The rainfall is sometimes heavy and when it does come it often falls in the afternoons and evenings. The hottest period is from February to March and coolest in July to August.

A7: Yes, visitors require a visa to enter Kenya. For details, please consult the Kenyan Embassy or Consulate nearest to you or alternatively apply for a visa online by logging onto: http://www.evisa.go.ke/evisa.html

A8: A health certificate is not a requirement for travel to Kenya unless traveling from a Yellow Fever zone. It is highly recommended that travelers to Kenya take precautions against Malaria starting a few weeks before travel and continuing with your prophylaxis a few weeks after travel to be on the safe side ( please remember that prevention is better than cure ). Please consult your doctor prior to departure.

A9: East Africa is no different from any other place in the world. However the usual precaution should be observed. Avoid displaying expensive possessions; walking through unlit urban areas at night, and follow the guide's instructions in the bush. It is also recommended that you leave valuables and airline tickets in the hotel's safe.

A10: The official currency is the Kenya Shilling. Visitors to Kenya can exchange foreign currency at banks or authorized hotels and Foreign Exchange Bureaux. Most international currencies are easy to exchange in Kenya. Travelers cheques are widely accepted, and many hotels and restaurants accept credit cards. Most Banks in Kenya are equipped to advance cash on major international credit cards. There are no restrictions on the amount of foreign currency that can be brought into Kenya. Anyone wishing to take more than Kenya Shillings 500,000 out of the country will require written authorization from the Central Bank.

Tanzania and Uganda also accept foreign currency and credit cards but to a lesser extent. Please convert most of your currency in the major urban areas into the local shillings (the exchange rates are better in the cities) as doing so in the rural areas offer veritable challenges and this might create hurdles for the traveler.

English is the “language of communication” in East Africa. It is widely spoken in hotels, restaurants and visitor establishments. Swahili is East Africa’s national language. A little Swahili goes a long way in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, especially in the rural areas. It is worth learning a little, and most locals are thrilled to hear visitors attempt to use any Swahili at all. For example, “Jambo” means hello and is often the first word learnt by visitors to Kenya.
