Kenya trip September 2013

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 30-Sep-2013 and 11-Oct-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The trip as a whole was very well organised and everything was as expected. All of the camps and accommodation were excellent and would have no hesitation to recommend them.

The only negative point was that the road trip to the Meru national park took much longer than the 5 hours that was expected. It realistically took us 6 hours plus the time from the gate to the camp, so in total it was roughly 7hours. It was interesting to see Kenyan life but it is a very long drive after an overnight flight. After speaking to the camp manager they have not experienced any problems with the flying option but we understand that it was our choice to take the road option but just wanted to make you aware when advising clients that the journey is very long.
