Here we outline what to expect on your Africa group tour or school trip to Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda. As all of our tours are tailor made some aspects may change. Please contact us to discuss the requirements for your group tour and a member of our team will help you understand what to expect on your group tour.
We only use trusted accommodation which we know to be clean, in a safe location and which is regularly inspected by local authorities. Accommodation is usually on a twin-share basis unless otherwise requested.
When camping, your group will be provided with all camping equipment including tents, quality sleeping bags, sleeping mats, eating utensils, kit bags, as well as three hearty meals per day prepared by Msafiri Tours trained cooks in a hygienic and controlled environment.
In the cities, breakfasts are usually served in hotels. Lunches may be picnic style or, along with dinners, in carefully selected restaurants. While on long journeys, our Msafiri Tours cooks have been trained to provide meals appropriate for the palates of the school group with a mix of local and western style dishes.
We believe that our local Msafiri Tours guides provide the best experience. Their local knowledge is unparalleled in terms of interpreting the natural and cultural environment, outlining the history of a region, engaging local dialogue and also re-arranging services if required.
Many of our local Msafiri Tours guides have worked for our company for a long time. Some are first aid trained, but all are experienced, and passionate about their country. We have the utmost confidence in their ability to provide an outstanding experience for your group or school that easily surpasses any service a western guide could offer.
Depending on the itinerary chosen, the group may use a variety of transport, but we mainly use vans and buses to travel about.
We only use trusted transport providers and always use private buses. Using private buses not only ensures we can control the safety of the service, but it also means the group is not taking seats away from locals who sometimes are more in need of the local services.
Well thought-out itineraries
If Africa group tour and school trip itinerary design was an art form, our work would be hanging in galleries around the world! At the very least, it is most certainly a science of meticulous planning and precise logistics, and we have years of experience to ensure your Africa group tour itinerary is safe and achievable.
When it comes to travelling at altitude, we always factor in ample days to allow for proper acclimatization, as well as to allow for inclement weather.
