“If we could give this safari tour company more than five stars, we would. They helped us in creating a truly EPIC African Safari & KILIMANJARO TREKKING!! Everything exceeded our expectations. We told them our interests and priorities for the trip and our agents worked hard to make sure it was all we wanted and more. Even after a few changes with travel dates.
Our safari tour designer provided absolutely professional and first-class service. Every booking and guide, porters, driver and staff person we met were exemplary, and the suggestions they made for us were fantastic. As first-time travelers to Africa, with group of 10 students we had many questions, and our agent responded promptly and in detail to all our questions. Brian, the company’s managing director and his partner met with us in person not once but twice - that level of service is something we have not encountered before. Our Kili guide and Safari driver was one of the most knowledgeable and friendly tour staffs we have ever met - we were sad to leave them. We cannot recommend this safari tour company highly enough! Our expectations were high, and they were exceeded!”
“I did the 7 day lemosho route with Enosa Expeditions and had a great time. First of all the hotel before and after is top notch just what you need after a 7 day climb.
Climb was great guides and crew were fantastic. Couldn't ask for more and all for a great price.”
“We booked a Luxury package 6 days Best of Kenya Safari with Africa Flash McTours & Travel, we traveled in November 2017.
We loved it, loved it and loved it!
We have seen so many lions, giraffes, elephants, hippos, cheetahs, rhinos (both black and white), leopard, flamingos, crocodiles, jackals, hyenas, baboons and many many more! We could see the animals being so close to them, we didn't expect that we will see so many and so close -the best experience ever!
We have been to Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli - where we saw the Kilimangiaro.
We stayed in the best lodges: Sarova Maasai Mara, Sarova Lions Hill and Serena Amboseli -what a locations! Service is outstanding as well as the food!
Thank you Peter (the owner) for organising this great safari for us and a big big thank you to John (our guide) for showing us the best of Kenya.
It was an unforgettable experience! We would definitely travel with Africa Flash McTours & Travel again!!!”
“My husband and I recently returned from a eight days safari in Tanzania, the wildlife was really exciting. We saw many animals in the nature. This was one of the best experiences we ever had. Everything was organised perfectly. Accommodation was superb and the game drives were exceptional. A special mention to our guide for being amazing. He was very friendly, but at the same time he also allowed us plenty of time to ourselves. I really suggest to you to do this.”
“We did the east Africa circuit and loved it so much! Felt completely safe and the tour leader was very good and knowledgeable and so well organized. Will definitely use Tucan when I go back to explore more of Africa! ”
Africa, the birthplace of the human race is often generalised as a whole country. In reality, a trip to Africa will introduce you to 54 distinct countries that encompass multiple climates, landscapes, religions and cultures. Holidays to Africa will open your senses to grassy savannah plains stretched across entire countries from east to west Africa and finally dipping south while the endless Sahara desert consumes the north. The miracle of Africa is the endurance of its wildlife and its people in what can often be extreme conditions. But don’t underestimate the cosmopolitan oases to be found.
Complete a pilgrimage to the wondrous rock-carved churches of Lalibela, Ethiopia. Visit during one of the big Christian festivals and witness the powerful scene of hundreds of white-robed believers crowd the underground churches that date back to the 12th and 13th centuries.
Visit the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, south Egypt and explore the tomb of Tutankamun.
Get lost in the souks of Marrakech while scouring for bargains or succumb to the cultural charms of Fez and the dark, winding streets of its Medina.
Sit patiently at a watering hole in Etosh National Park, Namibia and wait for the wildlife to surround you. From the Big 5, such as lions and elephants and giraffes, to smaller mammals like warthogs and hyenas - the cast of The Lion King is bound make an appearance.
Take in the unique character of Cape Town and it’s instantly recognisable skyline of Table Mountain, arguable one of the most beautiful cities in Africa.
Keep in mind that if you plan to travel to multiple countries, you will need two free pages in your passport for each country you intend to travel to.
Generally, most northern, southern and eastern countries allow travellers to purchase a visa upon arrival, whereas a lot of western and central countries require you to apply for a visa beforehand. However, be sure to check requirements before you begin your travels!
It can often be difficult to get hold of local currency before you leave, so always try to have some dollars (widely used) and euros (more so for northern and western Africa).
Make sure you visit your personal doctor before travelling to Africa, in case you need vaccinations or preventative medication for Malaria, for example. Some vaccinations are needed over a course of time, so don’t leave this until the last minute!
Sunscreen and feminine hygiene products can be hard to come by in certain parts of Africa, so stock up before you leave.
Dress according to the country you are visiting. Shoulders are generally fine for most countries, though the knees should be covered. Predominantly muslim countries will have stricter dress codes. Look at what the locals are wearing and follow suit.
It’s very common to greet or acknowledge people you pass in the street, this is just a polite custom and won’t solicit unwanted attention.
Africa is fairly well-connected when it comes to travel, though it can be slower than you’re used to. Keep your travel plans fairly loose and overland travel can be a great way to witness the country you’re in.
