EASTCOs Guides – A Wealth of Guiding Experience

Despite there being so much choice and information in guide books, websites and discussion forums, choosing an operator for your safari is now harder than ever. At EASTCO we believe the most important criteria is the guide, and our guides are the single most important reason for our trips being unique.

Their experience in running safaris throughout Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya; their ability to operate longer safaris and handle most situations which occur; their knowledge of the wildlife, the countries and their fellow Africans; and their ability to enjoy being with their guest, all ensures that everyone who has travels with them feels unique and not just part of their daily grind.

Guiding is so important at EASTCO, that everyone involved in managing, marketing and selling safaris has had at least a few years guiding, whether small or large groups; whether overland expedition type safaris throughout East Africa or the more common northern Tanzania safari.

It is this experience and background that elevates EASTCO above the general safari operator, a reputation earned over many years.
