Welcome to our African Tours and Safaris

If you’ve ever had “community involvement in a developing country” or “African safari” on your bucket list, but not quite had the courage or know-how to make it happen?  Well we’re most certainly the right tour company for you;  to take care of all your planning, preparation and ensuring you have the most amazing adventure of a life time!

Our large focus is on providing REAL African experiences and adventures, where our guests are nurtured and cared for 24/7.  Some years ago,  Helping Hand African Tours & Safaris established a primary school in a slum in Kenya, so our guests experience not only the abundantly rich culture and magnificent beauty of Africa, but go to places most travelers never go to; meet people most travelers never meet; and support and make a difference in the lives of local people, local communities and local small businesses.

Our guests forge everlasting friendships and leave having had a truly life-changing experience.

From only $800 Deposit!!  – balance payable 2 months before trip departure
