It specialises in providing travellers with unique experiences in East Africa – Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda. The teams’ expertise take exploring these beautiful locations to a new level as they get to know each client to ensure they provide them with the trip of their dreams. Its Founder, Dancan Kiiza has profound knowledge of East Africa gathered by over 10 years working in the industry. He has hand picked the team to ensure that the services it provides are of high quality and its customers are met by individuals who are experienced, welcoming, and kind. Dancan shares, “We have specialist guides including anthropologists, photo trip leaders and wildlife and nature safari guides. They already love what they do and happy to make every moment count for our guests.” No matter the occasion, whether guests are looking for a family holiday, a honeymoon getaway or a work trip. It offers them classic luxury while experiencing adventures such as, primate safaris, wildlife adventures, cultural and community tours, hiking journeys, and much more. The team customise even the smallest details to maximize the client’s experience. For example, the guide is assigned to suit their interests, and the suppliers needed for the tour are chosen considering the clients wants and expectations. The Signature Africa approach of creating the trips around the guests, instead of having set tours for them to choose from, means that they have 65% of returning customers which also include referrals. “We just do not have any limits when it comes to adventure and that’s exactly what our clients’ needs are. We just deliver it as they want it and possible with a little more touch.” Signature Africa has created example tours so its clients get an idea of what their experience could possibly look like. An example of a tour that the team created, entailed spending 12 days in Uganda that includes adventures such as gorilla tracking, boat cruise, forest nature walks, chimpanzee tracking, game drive, tree climbing lions, scenic flight and much more. These tours are well thought out and feature some of the teams’ favourite places to stay at. However, the final decision is the guests, from the adventures that they will go on, to the accommodation they will stay at, and how long for. The team will go to great lengths to make their dream a reality, however that may look like. “There is no better incentive than a memorable experience in the wild and beyond the rare.” Exploring with Signature Africa is an experience in itself as all guests are taken care of from start to finish. There are detailed lists on everything you need to know before travelling and before booking the trip, it mentions things such as – what to pack depending on the location they are staying at, advice on the best time of year to visit, health checks prior to travelling, the water quality, the electricity supply available, and so much more. This is incredibly useful and ensures that they come well prepared for the adventure they are about to embark on. Signature Africa goes to great lengths to make all of their clients stay one to remember and it now holds the title of Best Tailor-Made Safari Experience Provider - East Africa. We are excited for the future of the company as it is hoping to expand its location range to continue to provide with life changing trips for people all around the world to enjoy.
