My 2016 Safari Outing

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 10-Sep-2016 and 21-Sep-2016 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


It was delightful! Richard Trillo, who helped us organize the safari, did an excellent job. In the first place, he listened carefully to what we had in mind and very tactfully, made suggestions how to maximize our time within the constraints of our budget (no mean accomplishment).

He very wisely suggested three stops to give us reasonable exposure to what Kenya has to offer without wearing us down. Our experiences at El Karama, the Mara Camp and ending at Totilis were just what we had in mind.

Then, he coordinated the timing, the pickups, the flights so very well that we were never at a loss as to what comes next and will the taxi actually be there at (e.g.) 5:30 in the morning. Very well done!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Simply continue the personal contact!
