A unique phenomenon that distinguishes Right Time Safaris from other operators is our “MEET AND GREET SERVICE”. All our clients arriving at the international airports in Nairobi, Mombasa, Arusha and Entebe are met after clearing with the customs by our representative and guided to their vehicles for transfer to the next suitable destination.

At their hotel, they are helped with the check-in before thorough briefing of all clients. Our representative will always be there to provide extra assistance, reassurance and advice in a wide range of matters.


Game lodges and luxury permanent tented camps in or close to the parks and game reserves are used in these itineraries, in addition to the “Tree Hotels” in Aberdares, Mount Kenya, Taita Hills or Simba areas of Kenya.

In almost all cases, bathrooms are ensuite and rooms furnished with twin beds. Most lodges have swimming pools and swimsuits are therefore important but should be reserved for the beaches or pools only.Tree hotels have game viewing decks or verandahs and are situated adjacent to the floodlit waterholes.

Log fires may be used in the evenings in cool altitudes. A high standard of comfort and luxury is maintained even as we provide the true feeling of adventure style memorable throughout one’s lifetime. Single room supplement will apply almost everywhere.

In case of a camping expedition, a two-person tent is used in most of the parks with the option of a budget hotel depending on weather, place and season of travel. Again comfort is not compromised as most of our permanent camps have big tents with beds and foam mattresses. In some parks we use the make-shift [pitching tents] since the government forbids permanent structures. Sleeping bag is very important in this case and can be hired from our offices.


Evenings and mornings can be cool in higher altitudes. It is therefore recommended to have sweaters, jackets and long-sleeved shirts. Some clubs require official dressing code and gentlemen must where jackets and ties while ladies equivalent eveningwears. In campsites, as in lodges, generally eveningwear is casual.

Local customs and morals should be held with esteem. Most hotels, camps and lodges offer laundry services.


This is contemporarily included in the airfare and you need not worry about it unless specified.


There is a comprehensive network of internal scheduled flights to all major game parks and reserves. Aircrafts range from Dakota DC’s to small Cessnas or similar, but all aircrafts on scheduled services are twin engined. It is important to make prior arrangements for pick up on arrival at the airport or airstrip to avoid the hassle witnessed in most cases.


Considerably good with generally warm sunny days, minimal humidity and cool evenings- except at the coast. Close to the equator, there are no real seasons and every time has its special attractions. There are two rainy seasons; April-June and Mid September- November. It is normally pouring early morning or late evening giving some space during the day for some activities. Temperature and humidity vary a great deal with altitude and it can get really chilly in the mornings or evenings.


Import or export of currency is restricted, but there is no limit to the amount of foreign currency a visitor can import as long as it is exchanged through authorized dealers. Most premises and even bureaus do not accept Travelers Chequs [TC’s]. US$ and Euros are widely


On Safaris food is provided on full-board basis. In Kenya and Tanzania standard of cuisine is high, whilst in Uganda, it is generally simple but palatable. Drink selections are good including premium brands and imported wines.

Tap water is generally clean in the urban but tourists are advised to drink only treated water or mineral water bottled and widely available in many shops.


Malaria is endemic in certain areas of East Africa and all visitors should take precautions against Malaria. There are chemists in major centers but visitors on special medication should stalk well for their stay.


Our guest relation staff is in attendance 24 hours a day, seven days a week to handle any eventuality that might crop up any odd hour. Telephones at our head office in Nairobi are manned 24 hours daily.


Should be kept to a minimum during tours and just a piece plus a small overnight bag is as ideal as adequate.


Common sense should prevail and precaution taken just like in any holiday destination.

Keep valuables in safe deposit boxes in hotels and lodges. Carry money only enough for your daily expenditure. Keep close eye on your handbag or wallet. Avoid waking at night and use a taxi if you must go from place to place. Taking photographs at airports, near military installations or policemen and big hotels etc is prohibited. Seek assistance of your driver guide in this matter.


Different regulations apply according to nationality and country of origin and should be checked with the nearest tourist office or diplomatic mission. Ensure you have relevant health documents and visa on arrival.


Voltage in East Africa is 240 volts – British standard generally through 3-pin plugs. There is occasional power rationing during dry periods.


Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Kenya do not require any special mountaineering skills but due to high altitude, acclimatization and fitness are handy. Recommended kit [climbing gear] can be hired from most operators.


Walking safaris can be organized in almost any part of Kenya and Tanzania and also in some parts of Uganda. They range from The Paradise lost and Ngong’ Hills in Nairobi for just a day, to Selous Game Reserve for three weeks in Tanzania. This eliminates the artificial barriers of a vehicle, ensuring much closer experience of the bush, animals, and the people than on a conventional safari.

Trekking takes place in the wilderness mountainous and deep winding canyons of the harsh, spectacularly beautiful region of the Great Rift Valley, north west of Maralal. The terrain is only accessible on foot and donkeys or camels are used to carry equipment. An experienced armed guide accompanies the safari group ensuring a memorable trip by virtue of his vast knowledge of the area and wildelife.

Short nature and bird watching walks can be organized from most lodges and camps.

NB: Feel free to ask any question concerning your holiday plans and we will take much pride in sharing with you the wealth of knowledge and expertise.
