Twiga Tours are indeed "the fun people to safari with". My wife and I enjoyed an exceptional bespoke safari honeymoon experience. The Manji family took incredible care of us. They booked everything and took care of all the details from beginning to end. We received an overwhelming welcome, phenomenal hospitality, and exceptional service. From the airport tranafer upon our arrival to the breathtaking balloon experience over the Mara, the knowledgable guides and the the amazing safari vehicles, if you're going to do a once-in-a-lifetime safari, you can't afford NOT to have Tioga Tours arrange your special safari. I can't speak for other tour operators but I can honestly say that TT's 35+ years of experience makes them the best choice for your safari adventure. Well done Twiga team and asante sana.

Recently booked a safari using their website.
The agent that handled my family's booking was extremely efficient and friendly. All the camps and hotels that were recommended and booked were perfect for our needs.
The airport welcome was out of this world. What an excellent welcome and introduction to Kenya.
A big thank you to the entire Twiga Tours Team

I have known the Manji family and Twiga Tours for many years. A solid family business where every client is important. Great personal service, either you want an expencive luxury safari, or a more budget friendly experience. The Twiga family is there for you. Highly recommended.

Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

St Hilda - a little gem of a sailboat - great holiday. Excellent crew - thanks to skipper Christophe and cook Kerry . Arnamurchan distillery - fascinating tour - a real find. Loved the island of Egg - hike to Kildonan followed by fresh mussels and chips at the pub in the sun - bliss! And then she sped, bonnie boat, over the sea to Skye.

Wonderful, memorable cruise of the Inner Hebrides. The staff was far above any expectations I may have had. Great communication and assistance with the office prior to the trip. The crew on board took wonderful care of us, and were always responsive to our needs and preferences. Seamanship was clearly superior. Food was outstanding!! The ship is small enough that you really get a sense of being on the water and in the islands. It is also large enough to have resources and comforts. I am happy to recommend it.

      About Twiga Tours

      Founded in 1980, by a local father son team Twiga remains a top safari tour operator in East Africa.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Their expert knowledge and extensive experience in the travel industry have given them an edge in East Africa travel and safari experiences. Their high caliber personalized attention and repeat visitors every year speaks for itself. Other than the wildlife experiences, they also provide unique local connections allowing travelers to learn about the cultures and customs of the local tribes.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Travelers seeking a classic safari tour in East Africa. This is where many first time safari goers head, and their background matches this quite nicely. Safaris can be comfortable for multiple age ranges, but especially with Twiga where personal touches inspire repeat visits especially from older travelers and families.

      Where Do They Operate?

      They focus in 4 key countries: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Their attention to detail and making sure each individual guest is taken care of helps keep them at the forefront of this classic travel experience. Local knowledge and connections as well make them a great place for those wanting a relaxed journey to see incredible wildlife and enjoy the African landscape.

      About St Hilda Sea Adventures

      St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

      Who Travels With Them?

      All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

      Where Do They Operate?

      The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
