My trip to the Mara

Trip rating: Excellent
"The trip was booked VERY last minute (due to our late planning), but Richard was stellar in helping pull it together in just a day or two and we had an incredible trip."

"Naboisho Camp Review"

2 nights Arrived 7 Jun 2014
"Our trip was an amazing mini-miracle! Last week was the first time my colleague and I were in Kenya, working most of the week in Nairobi. We had intentionally booked a late flight home on Sunday, figuring we might like a chance to see some of the country and wildlife. On Thursday we did a simple google search, found the ExpertAfrica website, read about a couple of the camps, and sent an inquiry about possibilities for the weekend. I was delighted that an agent from ExpertAfrica replied that day, had some suggestions, and could help us book and go the very next day. We literally texted our credit card details from the taxi on the way to the play, purchased trip insurance and completed the booking forms while at the gate in Wilson airport only moments before the plain for The Mara took off. Somehow or other it all worked out and we found ourselves flying out of the city and into the bush.

Though our time was short--just 48 hours--it was well worth it! Both mornings we went on bush hikes (walking safaris) with Roelof starting at the crack of dawn and going for 4-5 hours. Here we saw elephants, lions, giraffe, baboons, zebras, gazelles, impala, dikdik, topi, eland, etc, all kinds of birds, etc. It was incredible to be out walking among them in their natural habitat. Roelof is a weath of knowledge, as were all the guides we met there.

The camp itself was beautiful, comfortable, and charming, as were the host and hostess. At night we could hear the lions from our tents. What a gift to stumble into this camp, these people, and this place."
