  63. 63. Professional Safari Guides Nic Cahill Born and raised in Kenya Speaks English and Swahili KPSGA Silver Level Andy Campbell Born and raised in Kenya Speaks English, Spanish and Swahili KPSGA Silver Level Safari Lifestyle Guides have an in depth knowledge of East Africa, and the destinations, cultures and wildlife in the region. They are certified with the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association (KPSGA). Private guides are with you throughout your safari, not only ensuring you get the most out of your safari experiences, but also handling the travel logistics every step of the way. The guides know the lodges and lodge managers very well, and can work with them to ensure all aspects of your stay at each lodge are suited to your requirements. Beyond the lodges, private guides have years of experience in the wilderness, and are able to show you the best of what these amazing destinations have to offer. Private guides are also your hosts, and will share past experiences with you, and give you a taste of what you can expect on the safari ahead.
  64. 64. Cuisine The lodges and camps we visit provide a high standard of cuisine. Most menus are set, so any dietary requirements, allergies, preferences, and other diet related requests are organised in advance. Produce is flown in every few days, ensuring the freshest ingredients. 'Bush' chefs are famed for the creations that come out of their remote kitchens. Dishes and wines served on this safari would not be out of place in a modern city restaurant.
  65. 65. Game Drive Vehicles Specialised 4x4 safari vehicles are used for game drives at every destination. These rugged vehicles allow access to remote areas 'off the beaten track'. Roof hatches, cool drinks, music systems, and two way radios are just some of the systems that come in handy out on a game drive.

  67. 67. Photography Photographic opportunities that arise on safari are frequent and impressive. If you are a photographer, familiar with your equipment; just double check your kit and accessories, and prepare for some outstanding scenes. For those who are less experienced, it is worth considering coming on safari with your own camera. Safari is all about immersing yourself in the wilderness, which is always enhanced with a good pair of binoculars, and for some, composing images and video gives a richer experience.
  68. 68. Private Charters Private Charters minimise the amount of time transferring between destinations. Unlike scheduled flights, they can be booked to suit each itinerary. Private charters are booked on an exclusive basis. They can be booked to fly into certain airstrips that scheduled flights do not service. The plane we use most often is the Cessna 208 'Caravan', the most popular bush plane. We only use the most reputable air charter companies, meeting the highest safety standards.
