Which style of accommodation is right for me ?
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 ?
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 ?
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.
