GLUTEN FREE TRAVEL IN AFRICA
Non-Package Safaris for Celiacs (Page 1/2)
An African gluten free travel is a nightmare for anyone with celiac disease. There is lack of information and honestly, it is just not possible to eat out-of-the-box" for the 2 weeks of your safari.
Hello There! If you or a member of your family is on a gluten free diet, we would like to discuss with you about your Kenya safari expedition. Candid planning and communication is essential and Ontdek Kenya brings 13 years hands-on experience in truly nature themed non-package safaris.
As an owner operated small scale but professional safari company, we have the advantage that the chain of communication is one-on-one. We treat you as a person with a name not a client with a ref number.
Our specialty is guided walking tours, bird watching holidays and responsible wildlife safaris away from mass tourism. We’ve been privileged to serve clients who are health conscious, not just in what they eat but they are also keen to engage on soft activities rather than sit in a safari bus all day.
For travelers on a gluten free diet, it does make a big difference where you stay when on a safari to Kenya. Our preferred accommodations are small lodges and tented camps which have a high level of personal service, unique settings and food worth traveling for - even for people with celiac disease.What’s more, these are properties we are directly in touch with, so our client’s dietary needs are communicated and attended to in a straight forward way. These are places you can expect the chef to sit down with you and do a re-run of your meals just to make sure that you are reading from the same script. Is this not what stress–free travel for people with the celiac disease is about?
Read a gluten free travel review from W.Tulp, who did a walking safari with Ontdek in June '09:
We've had a great experience with Ontdek Kenya. Our guides were very friendly and helpful. They explained us a lot about the nature and animals we were seeing, and being of different Kenyan tribes themselves, they could provide us with very interesting stories and habits about their own tribe and the cultures we were meeting. It was a very complete experience like this.
The hotels were of high quality standard and it was no problem at all for them to deal with a gluten-free diet.
We recommend Ontdek Kenya to everyone who's looking for a high quality cultural experience!
