They trust that their clients are in good hands with us.

Below are some commonly asked questions from travel agents and tour operators when they start working with us. Please have a look and don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. We look forward to partnering with you!

How do you pay commissions?

We quote all services to qualified trade partners in NET rates, so you can add on your desired commission on your side. Payments can be made to the Nairobi office via wire transfer.

Can you help organize Fam trips?

Absolutely. To make the most of the Fam experience, we typically work one-on-one with our trade partners to create custom Fam trips, vs. group trips. Please contact the Nairobi office, or one of our representatives in the US or Europe, to discuss your Fam objectives and complete a Fam Request Form. From there we will discuss options and work to get you reduced rates through our partners for your Fam experience.

Can travelers book direct with Hemingways Expeditions?

No. If you are a traveler, please contact us and we’ll put you in touch with a travel agent or tour operator who will work together with our team in Nairobi to create an outstanding safari experience for you in East Africa.

What type of vehicles do you use?

We own 4 Toyota Land Cruisers with extended bodies, the most comfortable and safe safari vehicles available today. These vehicles are used in both Kenya and Tanzania. We also own a fleet of smaller safari vans for use on longer driving itineraries in Kenya. The majority of our travelers in Kenya experience flying safaris, so when not flying from park to park guests utilize safari vehicles and guides associated with the individual camps.
