"This was our very first safari, and it was an incredible success...We loved every bit of it...

Everything extremely well organized, no surprises, great locations, fantastic game drives, smooth transportation between the camps..

Everything was exactly as James had explained us it would be. James helped us pick locations and activities that we loved, hard to come up with anything other than glowing compliments

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

no... we loved your service. Will definitely use it again for our next safari!"

"What a place! Perfect location, incredibly friendly and efficient service, burning fireplaces at night, great attention to detail (warm waterbottles in bed!), super tasty design, and out of this world views...

The safari trips from the lodge were great, excellent guide who did all possible to fulfill all our wishes... We simply loved this place !

Little Oliver's Camp

Little Oliver's Camp

"Little Oliver's Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 17 Aug 2017
"We loved our stay at Little Olivers camp... beautiful location, far away from everyone else, dinners under the stars, excellent cocktails (enjoyed at the campfire, a daily highlight), the tents were great (special kudos for the outdoor shower, a special treat!) and the game drives were superb, especially the only night drive we did this visit... We also did a walking safari, one of the highlights of our stay .

Special mention for Anna, the lodge manager, who made sure we loved every minute of our stay, and Herebert and Shomari, our fantastic guides.."

Kimondo Camp

Kimondo Camp

"Kimondo Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 19 Aug 2017
"Kimondo's key competitive advantage is its location, right next to the Mara river... we witnessed multiple wildebeest crossings at a stone throw away from the camp...

This is a moveable camp, which typically comes with a little less luxury than the stationary camps, but they did an excellent job making it comfortable... the location makes for amazing wild drives... we very much liked the sunset drinks at the campfire, and the daily welcome ceremony after we returned from our drive!

finally, highest marks of our two week visit go to Elia, our guide... and what a guide he was! Not only did he drive a beautiful Landrover (rather than a new Toyota, like almost everyone else) but he knew were to find animals where no other would even think to look... We saw the big 5 with him in a matter of hours, plus on top of that a whole slew of other animals not easy to find, including an unforgettable encounter with Cheeta's...

Great story teller, great sense of humor..."

Chumbe Island Lodge

Chumbe Island Lodge

"Chumbe Island Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 22 Aug 2017
"Beautiful location, great bungalows (we had bungalow 6&7,with our own beach!)... The boatride in was a bit rough , but once we were there very much worth it...

Good food, one night the tables were set on the beach and lit with many candles, a beautiful sight... Excellent snorkeling. Service was a bit slow, getting drinks sometimes took up to half an hour, and we had to hang around for over an hour on our last evening to find out the schedule for the next day,

Special mention for Vera, the manager, very charming, friendly and hospitable."
