Origins provide the crucial factors required for a memorable safari – sound advice and impeccable service, attributes so often missing from other safari operators.
No one knows East Africa better than Origins Safaris. They provide inspirational trips to numerous countries in the region, from beach holidays to the more adventurous, specialised and remote trips.
Ranging eastwards from Sudan, Origins cover Benin, the Republic of Central Africa and the Congo to Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia and southwards too, exploring the Indian Ocean’s spectacular tropical islands: Aldabra, Seychelles, Zanzibar, Pate, Manda and Pemba. As your partner in East Africa, they will always go the extra mile to ensure your wellbeing.
East Africa is quite possibly one of the greatest natural history destinations on the whole of the African continent, if not the world. Carved out of the earth’s surface by the Great Rift Valley, it provides some of the world’s richest and most diverse geography and natural history and is hardly surprising that it was the cradle of mankind some 4 million years ago! That unparalleled richness in biodiversity comes not only from the famous ‘big game’ but also from a huge level of sub-species that have evolved in geographic isolation from one another, together with a huge variety of bird species unseen almost anywhere else on the planet. For similar and other complimentary reasons, the regions’ cultural and tribal diversity is second to none; the insight Origins offer into these vanishing cultures is a privilege that future generations may miss out on.
Although specialists in safari adventure, Origins offer a whole host of other packages to suit your needs, all harnessing the same level of professionalism and expertise. Whether you are looking for a photographic wildlife safari to the Serengeti, an adventure safari to Uganda to
white water raft and walk with Mountain Gorillas or a cultural festival such as the Gerewol in Chad, Origins can provide you with a truly memorable African experience. In addition, they can also provide you with a spectacular wedding or honeymoon with sublime romance in the Zanzibar Archipelago, mountain trekking to Africa’s snow-topped highest peaks, cultural heritage trips to Lalibela in Ethiopia or an idyllic relaxed holiday to some of the most pristine white sandy beaches and azure blue seas perfect for diving and water sports, to name but a few.
