A word from the founder
“Growing up with a brother having a disability, it affected many aspects of family functioning in daily life, also when travelling. In 2007, when I started working in the East African hospitality and safari industry, I came to realize that a large part of the safari operators finds it too hard or challenging to offer safaris for persons having mobility issues (e.g. ‘the disabled’).
However, because of our home situation we always learned not to look at the impossible, but to look at the things which are possible. Sometimes it meant we had to improvise to ‘get things done’, but where there is a will, there is a way! And from this simple (but so true) life lesson is how Fika Safaris began.
Since its foundation in 2014, we believe that by removing obstacles where we can, you should be able to get access to your dream safari. tailored according to your unique or special needs. Many years ‘on the ground’ experience in various East African countries combined with careful planning, personally audited properties, gathering of mobility equipment, of the area and building a partnering network, made it possible to where we are now: the safari specialist in accessible and disability travel in the region.”
At Fika Safaris we believe that by removing obstacles where we can, you should be able to get access to your dream safari. tailored according to your unique or special needs.
