The People that Make Pinnacle Africa safaris


From the Directors

Doing safaris in Africa is a different context from the way it is done in Europe. The operating costs in Uganda are about twice that in Nairobi and in Rwanda about two and half times the price in Nairobi. In addition to tax, VAT and overheads are punitive. At the same time our knowledge and experience of the region is what enables us to do safaris of the best possible quality, even in the most difficult of circumstances. The huge infrastructure we have in place in Uganda, Rwanda, Congo and Burundi is what makes it possible to run safaris of such quality and inevitably that does not come cheap sometimes. The roads and other infrastructure, and generally the systems here do not always make it easy to do work, but we have always gone above the situation.
