  • Health 

    It is important to stay hydrated on safari and drink plenty of water.  Please consult your doctor or pharmacist about vaccinations and
    anti-malarial precautions prior to departure. 

  • When is a good time to go?

    We operate all year round and generally in the countries we host safaris, days are warm whilst nights tend to be cool.
    Within Kenya, the climate varies: coastal temperatures average 27°C (80°F) and temperatures decrease by around 2°C (3°F) with each 1,000 ft (305m) increase in altitude.
    The capital, Nairobi, (1,675m) has a mean annual temperature of 19°C. The arid plains vary from 21°C to 27°C (70°F to 80°F). Seasonal variations are distinguished by duration of rainfall rather than changes of temperature. Most of the country has two rainy seasons, the long rains from late March to the end of May, and the short rains in November.  

  • What should i bring?

    The best way to dress on safari is with layers as the mornings are cool but the days quickly heat up. Colours should be neutral and long sleeves and trousers will protect you from the sun and from insects.
    A fleece/warm sweater essential all year round for the evenings and a light jacket.
    A kikoy or light wrap is useful.
    A broad brimmed hat.
    Sunglasses with dark lenses to cut the glare and ideally wrap-around to protect from dust.
    Sun block, insect repellent, lip salve and personal medications
    Good sturdy closed shoes/boots for walking.
    Head torch is useful for evenings.
    To avoid missing out on spotting game, guests should bring their own binoculars – we recommend Leica Ultravid 10x42 or Swarovski 10x42 WB EL.
    A camera with spare batteries, memory sticks and the correct charging apparatus.
    A good book.
