We have something for everyone: From the casual traveler to adventurers seeking out the wild, from anthropologists out to live with communities and learn their culture to business travelers and special interest groups. We have your special safari package waiting to be unwrapped.

Among our array of specialties are city tours that show you the true magic of Africa. Our vast range of itineraries includes divine balloon safaris that are truly romantic, seven-day safaris into the wild Mara to view one of the seven wonders of the world – the annual migration of the wildebeest not to forget diving and snorkeling in the lush, unspoilt waters of the Indian Ocean, as you sample some of the world’s best diving spots for both amateurs and professional divers.

[…] 30% of the proceeds from all safaris go to society, where I support the less fortunate in the community that have been marginalized for a long time in Mombasa. […] As travellers, we all share the responsibliy to protect and conserve our precious resources. BIG UNION TOURS AND SAFARIS is active in a variety of conservation projects. We offer guidelines which we hope will enhance your experience and reduce the disturbance to the wildlife and the environment.
