Lodges stayed in
My Feb 2022 trip
Kenya between 11 Feb 2022 and 23 Feb 2022
Very pleased with the advice we got about our trip (including when one of our original accommodation choices shut and we had to make a change), also got helpful & practical information about the various Covid rules & restrictions."
"It's good to be back!"
Nairobi Elephant Orphanage visit
"Baby elephants - what more is there to say?"
12 Feb 2022 • Morning excursion
"Still wild heaven"
"Live the high life"
"A pool with a view"
A brief taste of Namibia
Namibia between 21 May 2019 and 30 May 2019
The self-driving was a bit of new concept for us (on African trips I have only driven in South Africa before as most safaris in Zambia, Kenya etc are not practicable for self-drivers) but, although the drives were long and everything seemed to take a bit more time than I expected, the roads were no worse and in many case much better than they are in South Africa."
"Back to the wild at Mundulea"
"Much more to Okonjima as cats"
My Nov 2015 trip
Kenya between 6 Nov 2015 and 17 Nov 2015
Richard's recommendations of the Emakoko and Laikipia Wilderness were perfect for us, with real style. Saruni Samburu was spectacular but probably not quite our style, although I think some people would love it. Air Kenya is what it is, a magical mystery tour.
Very happy overall."
"The Emakoko review"
"Who let the dogs out?"
"Style in the Bush at Saruni Samburu"
My Oct 2013 trip
Kenya between 14 Oct 2013 and 21 Oct 2013
Still good though."
