Our dream holiday

Kenya between 3 Jan 2018 and 14 Jan 2018

Trip rating: Excellent
"I think we've pretty much said it all in our previous comments. It was a perfect trip. Richard's knowledge of Kenya is unparalleled. He persuaded us to shape our trip to fit what we didn't even know we wanted. Great advice and in the planning he explained clearly how to view the trip, what we should expect and how it would pan out, without remotely spoiling the sense of discovery and surprise. In retrospect the only thing to have changed was probably to have spent a night in the city of Nairobi and one less day on the beach. Just because I love seeing cities at night. We did get a bit of that since our flight was very late in the evening as it happened. An extraordinary experience, we are indebted to you Richard and we will return to Kenya as soon as we can. Expert Africa are aptly named. Thanks to all who made it happen."

The staff were many and attentive. The rooms were large and beautiful. The food and wine was excellent. And the safaris and excursions were perfectly organized.

This is an absolute must. It couldn't be bettered."

Hemingways Ol Seki Mara

Hemingways Ol Seki Mara

"Hemingways is luxury in the Mara"

3 nights Arrived 5 Jan 2018
"Excellent in every respect and a superb view and a great location. Ol Seki Mara conservancy is such a beautiful place to be. It's like a condensed version of the main Mara National Park - and only an hour or so away from there.

The guide was superb, Rafi Rotokin, so knowledgable and so thoughtful as well as an exceptional spotter.

The food and atmosphere at the camp was outstanding. The shared dinning and lounge area made for great connections and great stories.

This really is the place to stay - look no further."

"Kinondo Kwetu review"

4 nights Arrived 8 Jan 2018
"Delightful retreat, lovely food and service. We more or less just relaxed by the beach, had massages, used the cliff top gym and swam in the beautiful pool. A perfect end to six days of safari which takes it out of you!"

Giraffe Manor

Giraffe Manor

"Giraffe Manor review"

2 nights Arrived 12 Jan 2018
"I'm sure it's all been said before, a giraffe-lovers heaven. So amazing, so close to the animals, so gentle... It is a quite extraordinary, once in a lifetime experience. Yes, it is pricey but it is completely worth it. Make sure you get there for afternoon tea and if possible stay for two breakfasts. The food was excellent and we had dinner in our own private room with 6 other guests, which was lovely and great stories were shared. The staff are amazing and the giraffe centre across the park is completely worth it as well. We also did the nature tour across from the giraffe sanctuary which was blissful, so many wonderful plants and birds. Save up and go if you can."
