The Best Holiday Experience Ever

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 26-Dec-2016 and 5-Jan-2017 and I travelled with 20 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


I was lucky that after looking at several websites I decided to call Expert Africa to talk about organising my 70th birthday present to myself --taking my entire family of 21 on a safari and beach holiday over new year.

I was even luckier that I spoke to Ellie. She spent ages going through the options and also checking on availability for such a large group. Her recommendations turned out to be perfect and the logistics she planned for moving such a large group around Kenya went like clockwork -- in fact better than that!!

Obviously just us all being together meant we were happy but because of Ellie's knowledge Mara Intrepid and Pinewood were the perfect places for such a diverse age range(6 to 70) and the private plane transfers the icing on my birthday cake.

We are a bunch of very well seasoned travellers -- we had people coming from 2 different continents the day before we went and quite a few had done safaris before but we all agreed this was simply the best holiday experience ever!!
