Many ask us how we can manage to keep the cost to a minimum on our trips and still show our clients all the birds. We are a family run company and do not have any overhead at all. We live 20 minutes drive from Kilimanjaro international airport, so do not have any great expenses for travel either. We will personally come with you on all the trips together with one or two of our local guides. Tanzania can be a very expensive country to visit as a birder. Hotels and Park entrance fees are usually the biggest expense once you have landed in Tanzania. We have managed to find good priced clean accommodation on all our trips. On several trips we even camp out in order to be closer to the birds. Since we are both bird photographers, we like to take a slow phase approach to birding. We try to keep the driving to a minimum in order to spend as much time as possible with the birds. We use exactly the same guides as the more expensive tour operators.
