14 days Close encounters with Africa

Safaris Duma, Tembo und Chui 

Would you like to fulfil a long-cherished dream and experience Africa individually and not just simply check off wild animals in a rush? We know Kenya like the back of our hand and with "Tembo" and "Duma" we have put together two exceptional and proven safari trips for you.

Additional days at the Indian Ocean can be organized individually. We will be happy to advise you if you wish to extend your stay.

We give you extensive advice and valuable information for the preparation and the journey.

"The "Duma" is aimed at people who want to limit their budget, who are looking for simplicity and who want to experience unforgettable days in nature. The singing of the birds, the chirping of the insects, the laughter of the hyenas or the rustling of the wind in the trees accompany you on your tour. Even the Internet has a break for a few days.

With "Duma" you stay overnight in safe tent camps and simple lodges. The camps are set up in selected locations and offer a simple and clean standard. In the tent you sleep in real beds. The camp staff will make sure that you have everything you need and will conjure up delicious Kenyan menus on the open fire.

You will be travelling in off-road vehicles or on foot.  We make sure that you have sufficient breaks to let the many impressions and experiences settle in. In the evening you sit comfortably by the fire, enjoy the starry sky, listen to the night noises and exchange your impressions with others. You will be accompanied by experienced safari guides who will lead you safely through the bush.

The chosen route offers beautiful, incomparable landscapes and the parks feature different animal and plant species, waiting to be discovered by you. You will also have the opportunity to get to know the Maasai way of life. At the end of your tour you will know about the different animals, ecosystems and wildlife protection. Above all, you have got to know Africa from its authentic side.
