We visit the parks, lodges, camps and destinations regularly and know what is happening ‘on the ground’! We can provide advice on the best times and places to visit for the Great Migration and can assist in booking properties, arranging safari vehicles and guides. We KNOW East Africa, and can help with safaris in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda/Rwanda.

Building memories that last

True Africa gave us a truly memorable experience in East Africa. All arrangements flowed without a hitch and the camps we stayed in could not have been bettered.

Though we just returned from East Africa, we're already thinking about our next trip and our work with Troy and True Africa to plan that adventure. Troy was patient and honest with us as we worked together to match our safari travel interests with camps in East Africa--and, as we learned along the way from camp to camp, he was... More

Troy and his team at TrueAfrica went out of their way to make our Honeymoon a truly special trip filled with memories that will last a long time. From the efficient communication we received from the team to the meticulous planning they did meant we could purely focus on enjoying ourselves. Thank you for a fantastic trip!

My wife and I have been discussing trip options with a few travel agents and tour groups and throughout all of our communication I must say that Troy Smith was exceptional. There were several days where I emailed him 3-4 times per day and I always got a quick, polite and detailed response. I have yet to actually take the... More

In early 2016, my husband and I decided we wanted to spend month in East Africa. We had been there before and we wanted to visit some different countries. We realized putting something together this complicated would be a lot of work and we would need help. After doing some research, we decided to work with Troy Smith and his... More

True Africa planned and coordinated our 9-day tour of Tanzania, including overnight stays in camps from Tarangire National Park on up though the Northern Serengeti. The four of us -- driven by our knowledgeable guide -- rode the whole way in a comfortable jeep with a pop-up top for photographing the wildlife. It was truly the experience of a lifetime!

We decided on a pretty last minute short safari to Kenya and Troy from TrueAfrica was quick to bring us up to speed with our best options and honest opinions based on our preferences. Troy's knowledge and experience made us feel very confident and we decided on an overnight stay at Giraffe Manor and a four night stay at the... More
