Why should you do a custom safari? Most travel programs to Africa offered by tour operates are scheduled group departures. Passengers must choose from pre-scheduled dates and be willing to travel with a group of strangers. Many find this appealing – equally – many do not.
East Africa is however unique, visitors here travel specifically for the opportunities to view wildlife in their natural environment and to experience the African culture. It is here that group travel has a very distinct disadvantage. Years of experience in the safari business has taught us that all visitors have specific expectations of Africa, when those expectations are not met, travelers are left disappointed.
