Masai Mara 2019

Kenya between 28 Aug 2019 and 7 Sep 2019

Trip rating: Excellent
"Excellent trip which more than lived up to expectations.
The camps, staff( particularly the guides) were outstanding as were the wildlife sightings. We collected some of the best photographs we have ever taken largely thanks to the guides.
Expert Africa organised an efficient, well planned trip which we will remember for a long time.
Particular highlights( and there were many) include: the hot air balloon trip, wildebeests crossing the Mara river. Very, very close encounters with big and small cats. Leopards under the jeep and lion cubs on the bonnet.
The enthusiasm friendliness and efficiency of all the staff was hard to fault.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
It is difficult to think how the service could be improved and we would use Expert Africa again and recommend it to friends.
Keep up the good work!"

"Great stay at Rekero"

3 nights Arrived 29 Aug 2019
"Well appointed tent next to the river.
Staff all very helpful and attentive.
Good food (not as good as Kicheche Bush Camp)
Excellent viewing platform overlooking Talek River
Usual camp managers were not in camp during our stay which may be the cause for late early morning calls and wrong drinks being delivered. This was not a major problem
Excellent guide (Francis)"

"Amazing experience.Great views safe landing"

30 Aug 2019 • Morning excursion

A memorable experience. Even my wife who was very apprehensive before hand thoroughly enjoyed it. Very competent pilot, excellent views of thousands of wildebeests and other wildlife and a stunning sunrise. It was all we hoped for.

"Excellent friendly staff, great guide."

5 nights Arrived 1 Sep 2019
"Very efficient and sociable camp managers (Emma and Darren). They made us feel very welcome and the camp was very well organised with great attention to detail. We had many excellent group meals. Food was excellent (better than Rekero).

Camp setting was not as dramatic as Rekero but staff were amazingly friendly and helpful throughout.
We had another excellent guide (Nelson) who consistently placed us in perfect positions to view and photograph wildlife. He had an excellent understanding of what was needed to get a good photograph as an amazing ability to find wildlife.

Tent accommodation was excellent"
