TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERT East Africa
Linda Friedman—who is based in Maryland and has an office in Kenya—has been on more than 100 safaris and travels to Africa four times a year (she even speaks Swahili). Linda specializes in planning personalized, private safaris, including family trips, throughout the continent. Whether you choose to track gorillas in Rwanda or follow the annual Great Migration in the Masai Mara, Linda will make sure that you optimize your time and resources. She knows which over-the-top camps have antiques and rainfall showers, which tents have the best views, even the names of the tent stewards who see to guests’ needs. Linda’s particular interest is the nomadic traditions of the Maasai; she has been interviewing Maasai elders for over ten years and loves to arrange authentic cultural interactions for clients. Each year, a portion of Custom Safaris’ profit is allocated to educational scholarships for students in Kenya. Linda was also included in Perrin’s People, Wendy’s award-winning list of top travel specialists, which was published annually in Condé Nast Traveler magazine from 2000 to 2013.
