Accessibility to major tourist destinations
By Road; Main roads are generally good but travel is much slower than in developed countries. Secondary roads in most parts of the countries are of variable quality and often slow and bumpy especially around the gorilla parks.
We have specially designed Land Cruisers, customized for safaris and wildlife viewing. No detail has been overlooked. An integral part of the safari is your vehicle, to which we have ensured the maximum level of comfort.
By Air; there are daily bush flights by private light aircrafts to most National parks and other destinations. We have partnered with specific domestic airline operators who have significantly made access to most National parks easier than ever before.
The aircraft type used is determined by the charter operator and is based on the number of passengers booked. The most commonly flown aircraft are single engine Cessna 206, 208, 201 for private charters and Cessna Grand Caravans (12 passengers) for all scheduled flights. These aircraft are well suited because of their ability to carry large loads out of short airfields economically.
Both vehicles and Bush planes have limited space for luggage, hence weight restrictions and specific types of bags (see below) are recommended.
Strict luggage and weight restrictions on light air crafts exist because most airfields are over 3,500 feet above sea level and are located in the warm tropics, thereby reducing the permissible carrying capacity.
There’s variety of options around the main tourist areas and national parks. There are a number of safari lodges, which give travelers a variety of choices depending on personal interest.
When you book a holiday with us, we will ensure that you stay at the best possible accommodation based on your budget. We personally check out every place, and know them inside out.
The accommodation we recommend depends on the destination, and your personal requirements. Sometimes it may be a five-star hotel, but more often it will be a comfortable lodge, a luxury mobile camp or even camping beneath the forest canopy.
Some facilities have been built in a simple and culturally appropriate way to provide comfort and style in the context of remote Africa. Simplicity, therefore, does not mean a lack of comfort! Guests are looked after by carefully trained local staff who take tremendous pride in ensuring clients have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Different Nationalities/individuals have diverging interests and expectations; we cannot therefore accept any responsibility or liability if any of the recommended properties/lodges/camps do not meet your expectations.
