Travel reviews by Mr J from Basingstoke


On this trip, I visited Kenya & Rwanda between 8-Jul-2016 and 19-Jul-2016 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:


Such a wonderful experience amongst some of the beautiful creatures with which we share this planet.

Combining the peaceful vegetarian Mountain Gorillas in the dense green forests of the Virungas, with the dusty, teeming expanse of the Maasai Mara at the time of the Great Migration gave a tremendous contrast in atmosphere and context.

Very good sighting experiences in both Rwanda and Kenya with knowledgeable guiding from local people with a real connection to the environment they were working in.

This was my first safari, and I think that if you appreciate the peace and grandeur of nature's wonders then there can be no better way to de-compress from everyday life than time spent in a camp like Naboisho.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The brochure is quite a piece of work !

I know such collateral is tremendously labour intensive and expensive to produce but I do very much appreciate it and I think it does articulate well your expertise and commitment to this market. If I do come to plan another African trip, it will be my go to resource.
