About me

Allamanda Safaris was established in December 2000 by Bryan Payne who has had 40 years experience in East Africa in the hospitality and tourism industry and with considerable knowledge of the Masai Mara as well as Tanzania. He established the company as a Tours and Safaris company, based in Malindi which has steadily grown in reputation by providing excellent services back up by true professionalism. Bryan is ably supported by experienced and trained Staff who assist in all aspects in the operation of the business but more especially in sales and reservations. Allamanda Safaris' core business is air safaris and has been sending clients to the major National Parks in Kenya, namely Masai Mara, Samburu, Shaba and Meru. Since establishing itself, Allamanda Safaris organizes regular "2 & 3 day Air Safari Packages" to the best and well known Camps and Lodges in the Masai Mara - see "Air Safaris" Allamanda Safaris also offers Road Safaris to Tsavo East and West, Amboseli, Taita Hills and Shimba Hills. These range between 2-days/1-night to 4-days/2-nights and are conducted exclusively in minibuses or 4x4 vehicles - See "Road Safaris" Allamanda Safaris caters to all individual needs and can do so by offering a variety of "Air & Road" safaris as well as "Tailor-Made" safaris. The "Air & Road" safaris are a combination of flying from and back to Malindi and then going by road from and back to Nairobi to the National Parks, not usually accessible by air. These National Parks are Lake Naivasha and Mt Longonot National Parks, Lake Nakuru National Park, Aberdares National Park and Mt Kenya National Park. The Masai Mara National Park and indeed Samburu National Reserve can also be incorporated into these safaris The "Tailor-Made" Safaris are a combination of safaris to the different well know National Parks in Kenya by air, notably the Masai Mara, Meru, Samburu or Shaba and Amboseli and can start off from Nairobi and end up in Malindi or from Malindi and end up in Nairobi. These safaris are ideal for those wanting to start their visit to Kenya by going on safaris when they arrive in Nairobi or to end off their visit to Kenya with a safari before they depart Nairobi. Itineraries are designed to meet individual needs and aspirations. Lamu Island offers a completely different experience because of its cultural and historical background. Allamanda Safaris offers a variety of packages from Malindi to Lamu to suite all needs from 1-night/2-days and 2-nights/3-days visits with local excursions to 3 and 4 night stopovers in a choice of hotels and guest houses. Zanzibar, the "Spice Island" offers the opportunity to completely 'switch-off' and enjoy a similar cultural and historical experience to Lamu coupled with sensational beaches and swimming. A minimum of 2-nights 3-days is recommended but of course longer stays can be organized. Tanzania is another destination that offers incredible wildlife experience and safaris can be organized to their most famous National Parks which include the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and Tarangire. For the fit, healthy and ambitious, climbing to the highest point in Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro is not only a challenge but a huge experience, never to be forgotten. Allamanda Safaris offers all these services using local and international air operators such as Kenya Airways, AirKenya, SafariLink, Mombasa Air Safaris, Bluesky Aviation and a locally based aviation company in Malindi, Aeronav. In additions to all the above, Allamanda Safaris can book and reserve accommodation in Nairobi at any of the leading hotels and provide transfers between airports and hotels. Such services are also extended to Mombasa for those arriving at Mombasa and departing from Mombasa. As Allamanda Safaris is based in Malindi, it is in the best position to recommend and book hotel accommodation that is available at varying rates. In addition to this service, Allamanda Safaris can offer its recommendations on the various restaurants and bars to visit. Also Allamanda Safaris can make bookings for Deep Sea Fishing, Dhow Trips, Local Excursions and arrange a number of other activities such as Kite-Surfing, Biking Safaris, Walking Safaris, Horse Riding Safaris and Mountain Climbing Expeditions
