East Africa Wild Adventures Ltd. was started by one man with a singular passion growing up: excursions into the bush with friends. Growing up in the heart of East Africa, Alym Bhanji has experienced the widest range of what East Africa has to offer. From racing cars in the mud at Rhino Charge, to trekking through the Selous, Alym’s aims to bring his firsthand experience to each of our guests.

East Africa Wild Adventures is not your cookie-cutter travel company that manufactures pre-determined, pre-planned safaris. Alym and his team get to know each client and his or her wants and desires individually to be able to create a vacation/safari/excursion that is truly unique, customized, and once-in-a-lifetime. We cater to building African safaris from Vancouver and beyond, with guests choosing us from all over Canada, the USA, Europe, and Asia.

Planning an African Safari from Vancouver can be daunting, which is exactly where we come in. We are happy to answer all of your questions and help you decide how to best plan your once-in-a-lifetime getaway. From kite-boarding on the east coast of Zanzibar, exploring the vast plains of the Western Serengeti, camping in Lake Naivasha, to climbing the majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro, East Africa Wild can put together a dream safari package for anyone.


Our team has over 25 years of experience and our greatest passion is sharing our love of African safaris with you.

Born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya with a love for the outdoors and especially the Kenyan bush, Alym Bhanji has experienced the best of what an East African safari should be. Spending most of his life early life in Kenya as a Canadian and Kenyan citizen with a family home in Toronto, growing up on two continents has given him a chance to understand what the North American African bound traveller desires out of a safari tour. East Africa Wild is able to design amazing routes to suit any traveller because of the experiences Alym has had on safari through the most remote parts of Kenya and Tanzania,  giving him a thorough understanding of the landscape and people of this unique part of the world.
