First Family Trip to Africa

On this trip, I visited Kenya & Zanzibar between 18-Aug-2018 and 1-Sep-2018 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


This was our first 'adventurous' trip with the children and it felt well organised, safe and most importantly, left us with incredible memories. Everything Richard organised; airport pick-ups, transfers etc all worked like clockwork. We were well looked after.

I cannot recommend Kicheche Mara and Pongwe Beach enough - we were so sad to leave! This has been our best family holiday to date - I'm not sure how we can top it!

Thank you.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Perhaps warn travellers about Nairobi airport!

We were inundated with mosquitos there (had packed repellent) and both my husband and daughter got food poisoning from the food court!

Feedback response

We were delighted to hear how much these travellers enjoyed their trip! But we were concerned to hear about the mosquito problem – and bad food – they experienced at Nairobi International Airport. We will certainly warn other travellers.
