Our Dec 16 to Jan 17 trip

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 28-Dec-2016 and 8-Jan-2017 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Fabulous trip with perfect balance of safari & beach.

Southern Cross Safari drivers were great, especially our safari guide who was really nice & knowledgeable and took us on great game drives. Loved having our own vehicle & driver for the whole time. Would have been good for there to have been bottled water in vehicle on long drive from Nairobi to Satao & from Satao to Watamu (we had to stop to buy some & then always remember to have our own).

Ocean Sports was perfect for us and we loved its chilled, unstuffy atmosphere. It is a very friendly place and some of the staff were fantastic (Florian, the manager, is great). But I wish we had been warned in advance that we would be arriving right in the middle of a huge New Year's Day party which went on until 1am - service the next day was decidedly slow & ropey!

Thank you for your help in organising such a wonderful trip.
