Kenya October 2019

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 13-Oct-2019 and 26-Oct-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


An intensely memorable experience - fell in love with Kenya all over again.

Especially enjoyed the interaction with our guides and staff at the lodges - have witnessed first hand over the years how more and more local staff are establishing themselves as guides and managers which is fantastic. At times quite an extreme and adventurous trip, with journeys to remote parts where we were the oddity. We had difficulty agreeing our top three moments so had to settle for six!
