A lot of variety from one week in Kenya

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 2-Feb-2014 and 9-Feb-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Each day was busy with activities and the seven days were full and rewarding. Offbeat Meru is pretty unique and was made really special by our guide (Dominic) whose eye sight and knowledge were both excellent. We had to work to see animals in Meru national park, which is much more rewarding compared with places where sightings are guaranteed.

Chances we won't return to Offbeat, but we can imagine returning to Sandai not least because it is relaxed and easy going. There's little in the way of procedure and process and a lot to be said for meeting others of like mind. Nearby Solio is good for a satisfying safari and the Aberdares offers a contrast, especially up above 3000m.

Overall we were very happy with the week.
