Beautiful Intro to Kenya & Tanzania

Kenya and 2 other countries between 15 Aug 2019 and 5 Sep 2019

Trip rating: Excellent
"Glorious trip to Kenya and Tanzania, our first visit to those countries. Having travelled in Africa extensively before, the punctuality and efficiency of collections etc was impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed the insight into local culture and the safari opportunities were stunning. All guides very kind and friendly, always keen to please.

Our limited constructive feedback as follows: All camps provided toiletries and washing powder, so no need to bring. Camps advertising laundry services still did not wash underwear (male or female), nor handkerchiefs. Drive to Il Ngwesi from Wilson airport was interesting, but ended up as quite an odyssey as driver did not know the way through Lewa Conservancy to the camp. As no signs available, this ended up as an additional 2 hours of desperately trying to find the camp before dark. All good in the end, but maybe check drivers know their destination before setting off."

The world's most scenic shower and loo location. Bed on the deck under the stars was wonderful. Bushwalks very interesting, rhino walk memorable. Sundowners and sunuppers in beautiful spots. James had lots of stories to share.

Very convincing model of profits going back to the community."

"The most comfortable tented camp"

2 nights Arrived 22 Aug 2019
"Saw all Big 5 in no time, own water hole close to tents was nice, with newly installed hide. Very generous on free drinks.

Peter and Sam made a funny team guiding the safaris, more youthful and much banter with the teenagers. Evening drinks by the fire."

"Blissful, living up to its name"

5 nights Arrived 30 Aug 2019
"One long stretch of relaxation, beautiful beach and bungalows, amazing tides, all staff very caring and kind.

Snorkelling was fabulous, as was the trip to Chole island, extremely interesting to see how people live and hear about their daily routines.

Pole Pole was blissfully quiet as a surrounding, food very good with interesting choices and some local foods on offer. Wireless access only in reception area, which made it very relaxing."
