AFRICA!

Even the word itself conjures up images of herds of wildebeest on dusty plains, great lions on the hunt, massive elephants moving over grasslands, the Maasai people and other tribes in traditional dress, the wildness of the Nile River, and primates in lush Ugandan forests.

Exciting new partnership

I am pleased to announce that I have set up an arrangement between my company, Safari Adventures Ltd, and Daniel Otieno's Twende Development and Travel in East Africa. I have known Daniel for a very long time and have a high respect for his experience, honesty and integrity. His organization Twende not only provides secure travel and accommodation arrangements but also gives dependable oversight and monitoring of charity funded projects in Africa. My company Safari Adventures Ltd along with Twende Development and Travel will provide continued excellence in safe and exciting safari programs in East Africa and also through Twende facilitate any pathways to success necessary for any Kenya-based projects or contributions of safari guests.

Hey everyone. We are gradually returning to the world of travel. With cautious optimism and some common sense we are offering an opportunity for exciting safari travel in Africa.

We think that 2021 is a great time for a trip to Kenya and the perfect opportunity to see and photograph the amazing wildlife and breath-taking landscapes of this part of East Africa. Leave the stress of the past year behind as you watch the big cats [lions, cheetahs, leopards], elephants, buffalo, hippos, crocodiles and so much more. Meet the friendly people of Kenya and share stories. Why not watch the sun go down over the great Maasai Mara? Listen for the sounds of Africa as you rest in your secure luxury tented camp or enjoy the pleasure of fine dining in an unbelievable setting.

We are making special arrangements for trips in 2021 in view of the pandemic. How do we deal with the uncertainties that everyone might feel? Part of the answer is flexibility. First of all, we are delaying the requirement for any deposits or payments for either of our programs. So our cautious approach requires simply an indication of interest on your part. An email to Brian at bandh01@telus.net will do. The program in February will be the same as the one in March. Then, one month before the trip, we would need a deposit of $500.US. - a booking fee to take the next step in our arrangement. Once again you are not committed at this point and this deposit would be refundable up to two weeks before the trip.

We do suggest that you watch well before the possible trip for good flights to Nairobi and when you see a great deal, make your reservation with complete cancellation insurance. Prices for return flights Vancouver to Nairobi have been as low as $1050. Cdn. Brian can advise you on flights.

Once we have your deposit we will quickly send out an invoice. Payments for the program will only be required two weeks before the program starts. At that point you have made a commitment and we can finalize our plans.

What about these plans in a COVID world? The Camps and Parks/Reserves in Kenya have all established appropriate safety precautions for visits. All accommodation and meals will be strictly limited to facilities with enhanced hygiene and safety protocols. We will follow the best procedures for any site visit in order to minimize any risk of infection. And we will continue to update our activities and safety measures.
Travel and game drives will be in safe comfortable Land Cruisers which are regularly cleaned, and passengers in each cruiser will be limited in number.

From the time of receiving your notice of interest right up to your trip, we will keep you updated on current COVID virus infections in Kenya and our itinerary and plans. We want you to feel safe and be safe.
So, we think that our arrangements mean that you have nothing to lose. Kenya is waiting. Why not send me an email [at bandh01@telus.net] and say that you're interested?

For individuals, families and groups, we have a range of safaris in our popular Kenya Explorer and Family Programs which take you on an inspirational adventure tour of Kenya with amazing landscapes, wildlife and cultures. The Explorer program is designed to give you the very best wildlife viewing and cultural experience. The emphasis in our Family Program is on having a safe, fun time, observing wildlife in their natural habitat and getting to know East Africans in their villages and at schools.

As a participant in our safaris you will begin your trip when we pick you up at Nairobi airport. Then it's all excitement and adventure!

Kenya and Uganda are such wonderful countries, with great diversity in environments, cultures and wildlife. And the people are so friendly!
