PCR Testing – we can’t take the test for you, but we’ve got the where and how covered!

Most countries and airlines require proof of a negative Covid PCR test. As your safari experts, we know their requirements and will take care of scheduling tests during your travels in Kenya and Tanzania, so that it’s conveniently planned into your itinerary and taking into consideration that results take between 24-72 hours. Tests cost between $100 and $330 per person, per test including transport to the testing facility. Your Africa Specialist will give you more information as it relates to your itinerary.

After breakfast, you will be driven to world-famous Maasai Mara National Reserve, backdrop to ‘The greatest wildlife spectacle on earth', the annual migration of over one million wildebeest.

The Maasai Mara National Reserve is an extension of Serengeti National Park. Named for the Maasai tribespeople (the traditional inhabitants of the area) and the Mara River which divides it, it is famous for its exceptional population of wildlife.

Game Drive in the Mara

We had an absolutely fabulous time. We lost count of the lions after seeing about 60 — your company lives up to its name! And thanks to our guide, Mau, we got to see the big five.

Everything went off without a hitch and we truly appreciated the hand holding at the airport and border crossing. And the weather couldn't have been better! It was awesome to have the entire tour to ourselves! I can't imagine how busy it is during high season. Both guides were excellent with many years of experience.

Thanks for everything,
Jen M.
