Our Dec 16 to Jan 17 trip

Kenya between 28 Dec 2016 and 8 Jan 2017

Trip rating: Excellent
"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."

"Great safari at Satao Camp"

3 nights Arrived 29 Dec 2016
"We loved Satao and found the staff really helpful & friendly. Service was swift and efficient too.

Very comfortable tents & great bathrooms.

The lack of fences made you feel you were really in the bush - the two lions very near our tent roaring loudly one night was amazing as was the hyenas' "laughter" the next night!"

"Ocean Sports review"

6 nights Arrived 1 Jan 2017
"Ocean Sports' lovely chilled atmosphere and gorgeous location more than make up for the things they don't do so well. The bar (inside & out) is just amazing and the whole place feels so relaxed and friendly.

The rooms are fine (beds a little uncomfy!) & you get used to the outdated bathrooms - it adds to the Ocean Sports' charm. Aircon issues meant a move to another room for a night but they fixed it quickly.

The staff, on the whole, are really friendly and keen to help, even if at times service can be quite slow. The food is great at breakfast & lunch but dinner is a bit more hit and miss.

We definitely will be back!"

Expensive and pretty bad dinner."
