How do I book this trip ?

The unique appeal of this safari is the exclusive nature of hand-picked accommodations which can fill up quickly, particularly in high season, it is recommended to book at least 90 days in advance, some of our guests book 1 year in advance. A deposit in the amount of 25% of your per—person trip price will hold your space. Credit and Debit Cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal, and Discover are accepted for your trip deposit.

Do you guarantee a departure ?

Every Shrike trip is guaranteed to depart as scheduled, regardless of group size. With Shrike, once your departure date has been confirmed and we have received your deposit, your safari will take place. We pride ourselves on making, and keeping, this promise to our guests.

We encourage our guests to book either private or custom safari. However, if you prefer a small group adventure and in keeping with our commitment to personalized service and exclusive arrangements, groups vary from as few as 4 guests [and what service!] to an average of 6 believed to be the smallest group in the industry.

Can I transform this trip into a private TRIP ?

We can easily customize this safari into an exclusive, fully Private Safari, with you and your family, or a group of friends with your own safari guide. A private vehicle will be yours for all game drives and tours—a lovely feature! Please mention this option upon booking…

Which style of accommodation is right for me ?

You’ll be happy to hear that you can’t go wrong.
Those who select exclusive-use properties will experience the utmost privacy and exclusivity while with the luxury package you will unwind at the region’s premier resorts and lodges, complete with award-winning spas and fine dining experiences. Mid-range accommodations are well-appointed, with a focus on African hospitality and authentic safari experiences during your stay.

What is the best time to come on this safari ?

According to our experience; the best time to witness the Great migration is during the short rainy season [December—March] and the landscape is beautifully green, the dust has settled and there are fewer guests on safari. The grass is fertile and tall which makes the spotting game more challenging but rewarding. However, April—May is heavy rain season and the rain will always rain at night. The remainder of the year is called the dry season, when there is less water available so animals tend to congregate around the water sources, making game spotting easier. The Mara River crossing attracts more guests specifically from July to September.

Is there a minimum or maximum age for guests on this trip ?

No there isn’t, we welcome people of all ages. Children of all ages are allowed; we do suggest that children of the ages of 3 years and up seem to get the most out of their experience. There is no upper age limit. We kindly ask you to let us know in advance if you are physically challenged or less—abled.

What sort of food can we expect ?

3—7 courses per meal; in the bush, the quality of the cuisine in lodges and camps is superb. Early riser’s coffee is served before the sunrise game drive, followed by abundant breakfast buffets, luncheons on the veranda, and a formal afternoon tea. Dinners are fashionably late following the return of the afternoon game drive, allowing time for relaxation and “sundowners” in the lounge or around the campfire.

I am lactose intolerant/ require gluten-free meals/ allergic to peanuts/ vegan. Can you cater for this ?

Yes, the chefs at each lodge or camp have been specially trained to deal with many different types of dietary requirements. They will personally discuss your upcoming meals with you. Please also be sure to notify us of dietary requirements when making your booking.

What is the earliest international flight that I can book on the last day ?

The earliest international flights you can book are those that depart at 2030 hrs or later. If you depart earlier than that, we can organize an early airport transfer for you; in this case, the earliest international departure you can book is then 1600 hrs.

It certainly was a new experience to receive so much attention from a company owner. The personal touch of Mark was very much appreciated. And our driver Henry was so warm and amiable that we thought we were traveling with a friend. It was beyond a vacation or even a dream.

This is not just a safari company. It is a life changing safari company. Top, top service and kindness do not always go hand in hand. They do in this company. You want to treat people in the world like they do.

The trip was amazing. Ahadi was great and the surprise he made for us was beyond words – a private balloon safari with a champagne breakfast was a definite highlight and one of the coolest experiences... I would definitely recommend your services to friends and family. Thanks so much…
