Tropical Ice, founded over 40 years ago, is East Africa’s first travel company to specialise in adventure safaris.  Renowned for taking people on safaris into the wildest regions on earth, while, above all, maintaining the highest standards of luxury.  We operate active adventure safaris with a difference, in Kenya, India, Japan and Botswana.

To learn more about the country we walk across on our Great Walk of Africa, we strongly recommend that you watch the Barack Obama narrated Netflix series Our Great National Parks.  Episode 3 is all about Tsavo, and it is spectacular.

We proudly present our world renowned adventure safaris

Tropical Ice has been featured in National Geographic, awarded Trip of the Year by Outside Magazine, and profiled by USA Today.

Our Mission

The concept of Tropical Ice is more important today than it was over 40 years ago when we first started.  Owing to population expansion, the natural habitat of the world is being threatened today as never before however, we know where the places are that one can still find a world unchanged, where roads are few and people fewer.

Above all, our mission at Tropical Ice is to continue seeking these places out so that we can introduce our visitors to the wilderness we grew up in, to give you an adventure safari of a lifetime.
