Help Please! Can Someone Please Reccommend a Tour Company?

I'm planning a trip to Kenya & Tanzania in Jan/Feb 2015. I am seriously overwhelmed by the options. I will be in the area for 21 days. I'm looking for a good quality tour with moderately priced accommodations. I'm also traveling alone. This is likely my one and only trip to Africa, so I want to make it amazing. The names of a few tour companies that have been tried and proven wonderful would be much appreciated.

Thanks

you can go to KATO website and select tour operators,otherwise you can also check www.safaribookings.com which has got alot of tour operators packages and best rates packages.

safaribookings.com has got selected 8 countries in Africa tour operators,so you can select from their list.

Hello,

I would suggest you call a couple of different agents, get a few quotes and see which you feel fits you best. A good agent will work with you to tailor every element until it's just right. Alternatively you could select to join a group safari, of course this will be a little more restricted in terms of customisation, however can sometime save you a bit of money.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

I booked a car + driver/ safari guide with Ancient Wild Safaris.com - I'll be back 6th October and can give you update on their services if you wish.

Why I contacted them: I read a post on tripadvisor from satisfied clients who wrote that the owner and drivers started on their own after working for a company that didn't treat them very well.

What made me book with them: Michael gave a detailed price proposal, not just 1 all inclusive price but split it out at my request.

As PureSafari suggest; try a few and book with the one that you have a good feeling with.

Or you could contact a travel agency in the country you live? A specialised travel agent would be able to get you good rates too.

I posted re Ancient Wild and would be very interested to hear how it goes for you after you return. I am sure you will be happy with them. I recently had them purchase and deliver a gift to our sponsor family in Kenya and they took care of it without incident. I sent them the money and I trusted they would take care of it, which they did.

I always use Gamewatchers www.porini.com

They have their own splendid tented camps in conservancies - See Trip Advisor for Porini Mara or Porini Lion.

But they are also one of the main tour operators in Kenya and know the best place and the best deals.

My friends and family always use them and we have never been dissapointed.
