Safari

It's absolutely true what they say: there is nothing quite like an African safari. I grew up in Egypt, living there for seven years, and during that time I visited many areas in Africa. Since then, I continue to explore this spectacular area of the world. I have experienced the beauty of Kenya and Southern Africa, including visits to Victoria Falls, Botswana, Zambia, and South Africa. I am a certified Africa and Egypt Specialist and I was appointed as a Master Kenya Tourism Specialist by the Kenya Tourism Board; and a South African specialist by the South African Tourism Board. Call or email to set up your new adventure to this amazing part of the world.

Insider Tip

Get to know the guides while on safari as they will have wonderful stories to tell.

Other Specialties
East Africa
East Africa

East Africa is a feast for the senses: it will lure you in and never let go. From myriad cultures living as they did hundreds of years ago, to natural wonders like the migration of the massive wildebeest, things in this part of the world have their own special kind of magic. As both a Master Kenya and Tanzania Specialist, I've traveled these regions enough to be keenly aware of what can't be missed, what to avoid, and how to navigate the unique logistics of this kind of journey. I'll set you up to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro or arrange an up-close encounter with gorillas in Uganda. From touring ancient slave markets to a spending a day in the company of orphaned elephants, your experiences here may cause you to view the world as if for the very first time. Bring plenty of camera memory: No other location begs to be photographed with quite the same ferocity. With me as your guide, you'll discover the soul of a land unlike anything you've ever known. Just contact me today to get started.

Insider Tip

Pack light in terms of clothing: most lodging will have laundry facilities and planes in this region have greatly reduced luggage capacities.

Kenya
Kenya

Kenya is where I fell in love with Africa; I'll paint a picture that'll make you feel as if you're standing in the Serengeti before you ever set foot on a plane. With my help, you'll visit armed with a list of highlights; as well as activities you can save for a return trip. Whether watching wildebeest migrate through the yard of your bungalow, or staying in the hotel that's a celebrity favorite, I've got excursions that will appeal to your unique spirit of adventure. Picture drinking an ice-cold Tusker-the local beer-while overlooking a hippo watering hole, or marveling at the array of pinks displayed when flamingoes take flight at Lake Nukuru National Park. I'll insist you "jump" with a native warrior and tell you what to expect during the "spitting portion" of a traditional Masai blessing. I'll even explain the why the "Kenyan massage," is not as serene as it sounds. Contact me today for the most authentic experience possible in this life-changing destination.

Insider Tip
