Great trip to Antarctica with a caring, enthusiastic and knowledgeable expedition company. It was delightful to travel with staff who genuinely cared both about the Antarctic and its environment as well as making sure the passengers got the best experience possible. Highly recommended

Our voyage around Svalbard on the Polar Pioneer was truly a trip of a lifetime. Our expedition team was incredible, creating one amazing experience after another! Their deep knowledge, professionalism, and obvious enthusiasm for this magical place made the trip so special. I'm astounded how they could put so much energy every day into making all the guests feel so valued and delivering such a first-rate program.

I will forever be grateful to Christian, Robin, Gary, Jucca, Dr. Ann, Carol, and Justine and all the ship's crew for a trip that far exceeded my expectations and delivered on my dream of an amazing Arctic experience.

And I'm in love with the Polar Pioneer - what a cool ship, with just the right amount of comfort and character. Now to save for my Antarctic voyage!

      About Elite Luxury Kenya

      Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

      Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
