Travel reviews by Ms S from Ste Marthe

My Mar 2018 trip

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 1-Mar-2018 and 12-Mar-2018 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:


The trip was truly wonderful and I hope to return to Kenya one day.

I have traveled extensively in Africa, but this was my first trip to Kenya. It is a totally different experience and I attribute the success to our wonderful guides at each camp.

The animal life is astonishing as is the bird life.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

One suggestion: provide more detail about applying for the e-visa...advise people that they need to log onto the site after several days to get the visa.

This is not very clear on the Kenyan site.

Feedback response

We're delighted that Ms S had such a good trip to Kenya and the guides at the camps delivered so well. On the question of visas, we generally advise clients to get their visas on arrival in Kenya. This is quick process, requiring no photos or documents apart from the simple application form which we provide with every booking. The advance visa application website run by the Kenya government is usually fairly straightforward for those comfortable with uploading documents on the internet, but occasional delays can occur and we feel on balance that visa on arrival is an easier solution.
