Small group tours:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modeled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.
Our top tip:
Pack light layers for the days and warmer layers for the evenings because the temperature can drop.
Small group tour. 4-18 adults (min. age 18) with a tour leader.
9 nights basic camping, 4 nights hotel.
Solo travelers welcome. Single rooms available with surcharge.
All breakfasts, 9 lunches, 9 dinners.
Accommodation, all transport and listed activities, tour leader, flights (if booked).

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAccommodation & meals:
The majority of this trip is spent camping, therefore reducing our energy consumption and carbon footprint for the whole trip. Each tour has their own chef, dedicated to buying produce from local stalls and markets and making a range of traditional meals. Guests might have the chance to learn to make a regional specialty such as stew with ‘Ugali’ - a maize flour and water mixture with the consistency of dough; or ‘Pelau’, which is made from rice, spices and chopped meat.
The permit fee charged to see Nakuru National Park, the Masai Mara and Serengeti National Park goes directly towards the preservation of several endangered species and their fragile but beautiful environment. We hope to see flamingos, endangered white and black rhinos, lions, leopards, wildebeests, cheetah, hyena etc. By traveling with us, you ensure that rangers are paid a fair wage and have the provisions and personnel to protect themselves and wildlife against harmful poaching activity.
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
We employ local tour guides, drivers, porters and chefs and so all of these employment opportunities provide financial benefit for people in the community. Our guides are also keen to teach Swahili as a means of making a more genuine connection with people they meet on the trip.
Local Crafts & Culture:
In addition to purchasing supplies locally, tour guides encourage travelers to purchase goods and souvenirs from a local craft center in Arusha. The project is run by a group of young people, who learn and perfect traditional craftsmanship in order to sell their wares and make a better living. The paintings and carvings are particularly special here and guides are careful to advise against the purchasing of endangered local hardwoods and animal materials. In Stone Town, Zanzibar, we carouse through the myriad of small alleys and markets and purchase spices as the area is known for this trade.
This is a small group tour and so numbers do not exceed 18, meaning that local environments and the communities and variety of species (endangered and otherwise) that we encounter are not seriously impacted by our stay. This group size also allows us to travel with ease and therefore to stay at a number of unique, lesser known campsites and one hotel that would not usually benefit from tourism commerce due to its limited size.
