Why Albatros East Africa?
Style: While Albatros do offer two scheduled group departures, they specialize in tailor-made safaris for FITs and small groups featuring a variety of properties, often a combination of independently owned camps/lodges with those from property groups like Sanctuary, &Beyond, Elewana, Nomad, and more. As an independent DMC, what differentiates Albatros is their ability to “chop and change” properties (as Jules likes to say!), thereby designing truly tailor-made itineraries which will differentiate your proposal from other agents who simply sell the property circuits.
Bottom line: As a true regional East Africa DMC, Albatros combines the personal touch of a small team with local management and loyal staff with the credit rating, reach and buying power of a global company, giving you the best of both worlds. Read More
Vehicles: Albatros takes great pride in their operations, including their fleet of custom-built Land Cruisers. Designed with both guest comfort and safety in mind, the vehicles feature extra large front windows for better viewing, pop-tops and seating for a maximum of seven guests, meaning each guest has a window seat. Inverters for charging cameras and devices are de rigeur, as are fridges for cool beverages. Steps make it easier for less mobile travelers to enter and exit the vehicles, and white-label branding is available should you require it.
Service & Guiding: The first smiling face your guests will see if visiting East Africa with Albatros will likely be that of Nelson Reginald or Otieno Odhiambo. Nelson (Tanzania) and Otieno (Kenya) are Albatros’ “Client Liaison Officers” and they are the first to welcome guests on arrival in either Arusha or Nairobi and they also check in with the guides/guests throughout the safari. Albatros also has a firm focus on the quality of their guides. With a team of 10 on-staff guides, many of whom have been with the company for 15+ years, they have developed a reputation one of the best guiding teams in the industry.
