Our Advantage

Welcome to the splendors of a beautiful continent!

I would like to introduce myself as your C.A.T Safaris Travel Advisor. For years I have been helping clients make their dream trips a reality, and I hope that our partner offerings and my consultative skills will produce wonderful, world-class vacation experiences for you.

Welcome to my neck of the woods, Land of the “Big Five”.

Use my knowledge and expertise to create your perfect safari holiday. You are invited to the farm of my parents in Nyeri while in Kenya. Your Safari choice includes joining me in yearly trips, joining a small group or as a private group.

Here’s a little bit about my background: I was born and grew up in Isiolo, Northern Kenya. I now live in the US and have been to Africa more than 20 times in the last 7 years escorting small groups of guests & friends to this wonderful continent. We at times get a chance to visit my village and meet my family. I’ve been a travel professional for over 10 years. As a Destination Specialist and a Travel Consultant, I arrange custom travel ranging from family safaris to honeymoons, including group travel. As your C.A.T Safaris Travel Advisor & Director, I will listen carefully to your travel needs and expectations then assist you in deciding which airline to use, depending on destination, budget and the type of experience you’re looking for. I’ll also help you choose your itinerary, accommodations and guides, and let you know about special festivals, shows, and other happenings at your destination.

My aim is to provide enlightening, life enriching and potentially life-changing travel experiences that bridge cultures through positive interactions. With over 10 years of safari experience and in-depth local knowledge I know where to go and, crucially, what time of day to capture that perfect African moment.

No matter what your budget, we can create that perfect safari holiday and an adventure to last a lifetime. We specialize in East Africa including: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda & Rwanda and have local partners that we have used for over 20 years.

I look forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you soon…

“Mahinda is an incredible tour director who not only is an expert in wildlife, but also provides incredible customer service to his clients. His attention to detail will provide you a trip that will allow you to relax instead of worry.

His smile and personality will make the trip seem like you are taking a trip with one of your friends. From the time you start planning the trip with Mahinda until the time you leave, Mahinda is in communication with you and ready to answer any question you have. I would highly recommend him as a professional tour director.
