Welcome to El Moran Safaris, a dedicated and professional safari company offering everything you need for an unforgettable safari experience.
El Moran is solely focussed on the Safaris and Excursions we sell, unlike many major operators, who's priority is appeasing their shareholders. We continually test itineraries in order to improve our service to you.
We aim to bring you inspiring holidays in superb locations in East Africa and the Indian Ocean. For years we have arranged holidays while working for major operators for hundreds of thousands of passengers, who have chosen safaris, a beach break, or a cultural itinerary.
Many travel to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary and many couples have got married on some of the most incredible beaches in the world. We enjoy innovating and bringing you new options, be they new Camps, Lodges, or new itineraries as East Africa opens up to the world.
Most people who have travelled in Africa will tell you that a Safari experience in Africa is directly related to the Quality of their guide. We believe the above to be true and therefore it is important for our clients to know that we can assure our clients of excellent services whilst on safari. It is also important for clients to know that El Moran Safaris driver guides have a minimum of 5 years experience in the industry and therefore their knowledge of the product is second to none.
El Moran Safaris’ staff meets each and every client arriving at both Nairobi and Mombasa airports. A representative from El Moran Safaris briefs all our clients and covers useful facts about local customs, currency and general advice regarding their safari itinerary. Our Staff are also available to assist with any additional requirements that our clients may have or simply to give advice on shopping and eating out. Naturally, emergency contact with our staff is always available, 24 hours a day in both Kenya and Tanzania, should our clients find it necessary to reach us after normal office hours.

Visitors to the region should take the same care as they would normally take, whilst visiting any destination worldwide. By keeping vigilant, visitors can reduce the risk of anything-untoward happening. We do advise our clients not to take expensive jewellery on holiday with them and to watch handbags, wallets and cameras when walking in crowed places. Walking at night in unlit areas is not advisable. We strongly recommend that all our visitors utilize safety deposit boxes when and where they are available, for own peace of mind.
Both Kenya and Tanzania enjoy a healthy, invigorating climate and visitors need feel no concern for their general health during the course of their stay. By far the biggest risk is Malaria, which is endemic in certain areas. Anti-Malarial medication should be taken according to the advice of your local medical practitioner. Visitors requiring special medication should pack sufficient supplies in their hand luggage. Chemists and pharmacies are generally well stocked, however the names of some generic medication, can differ. Consult your medical practitioner for advice on alternative medication to take, as some medication is not readily available. Tap water is generally safe within Nairobi, and mineral water is available in most camps, lodges and hotels, throughout Kenya and Tanzania. (In many, purified or filtered drinking water is provided free).
We will endeavour, wherever possible to meet any special needs that our clients may have. In the case of special dietary requirements, most hotels, camps and lodges within the region are prepared (given sufficient notice) to cater for these. For persons who are disabled in any way, we will do our utmost to cater for whatever needs may apply. We do require advance notice of any requirements, so please ensure that we are made aware at the time of making a booking.
Visitors must be in possession of a valid visa (if applicable to your nationality) together with relevant health documentation, upon arrival to both Kenya and Tanzania. Different regulations do apply according to nationality and country of origin. It is recommended that all perspective visitors check with their nearest tourist office or diplomatic mission before any travel details are made. Medical centres in your country of origin will provide the necessary professional medical advice on all relevant health requirements.
Generally, personal effects such as cameras, laptop computers and film may be imported temporarily free of duty into Kenya and Tanzania. However, a customs bond may be required for professional video equipment, sound recording instruments, radio communication equipment, musical instruments and souvenirs from other countries. This is to ensure that goods can be re-exported. Firearms need a special permit, which must be obtained well in advance. Excess baggage is strictly monitored by all airlines and charges for excess weight can be very high. Expect customs officials to inspect baggage on arrival and departure.
Currency control regulations prohibit the export of local currency. There is no restriction however, to the amount of foreign currency a visitor may import. Only authorised foreign exchange bureaus and banks are permitted to exchange foreign money. Kenya and Tanzania currencies are interchangeable
All prices are correct at the time of going to press. However, these are subject to increase in cases of force majeure, Government Tax and Park Entry Fee increases and fuel surcharges. The correct price will be advised at the time of booking. Prices will also be quoted separately where Safaris run from one season into another.
