East Africa is our most popular destination, being exotic and combining high mountains, culture, wildlife with beautiful coasts and a year round pleasant climate. Kenya offers the best value by far with Mt Kenya a much more interesting and beautiful mountain than Kilimanjaro. Most tourist facilities are generally better and cheaper in Kenya than Tanzania and flights to Nairobi easier to get and cheaper, however it is hard to rival the unique Ngorongoro Crater or Zanzibar in Tanzania and of course Kilimanjaro is the highest summit of Africa. A trip to Uganda, especially to the see the Gorillas or walk in Rwenzori or on Mount Elgon, is very rewarding but the tourist costs are high and the infrastructure mediocre.
On our dates and prices page we provide an idea of costings based on a group size of 4 or 6. We specialise in individual travellers and small groups. To be able to arrange the best trip for you contact us with an outline of what you would like to do. You can either email us or contact us by telephone, see above numbers. Student or school groups.
To help you in your planning we have tabulated a summary of the best times of year to visit each destination.
