Great Experience

Kenya between 25 Oct 2019 and 2 Nov 2019

Trip rating: Excellent
"Expert Africa provided us with a wonderful and very comprehensive wildlife experience in a short, one week safari.

We stayed in a luxury traditional lodge, as well as a small, bush tent camp. Between the two experiences we saw all the big five, and many more animals as well. We saw the endangered rhinos and Grevey zebras, as well as a pair of leopards matting, cheetah cubs, and the wildebeests on their endless marches.

I don't think much more could have been packed into one week."

Lewa Wilderness

Lewa Wilderness

"Game Drives and a Whole Lot More"

4 nights Arrived 26 Oct 2019
"Lewa Wilderness offers a lot more than just game drives. They will arrange walks in the reserve (with breakfast in the bush), a trip to the Ngare NdareForest with its tree canopy walk, horse back riding, camel riding, a visit to their organic farm and more. They are particularly good with children, offering a morning of learning traditional Massai skills.

Our cottage was spacious and located so that we did not see other cottages but looked out over the downs, where we could view giraffe, elephants, rhinos, etc. They have extensive electric fencing that allows the elephants to be close enough that we could hear their stomachs rumble! Food was buffet style and generally good and staff were very friendly."

Saruni Wild

Saruni Wild

"Real Bush Feel"

3 nights Arrived 30 Oct 2019
"In terms of game viewing, our experience at Saruni Wild was great, We saw all the big cats, as well as the wildebeests that we did not see at Lewa. Our guide, Kisame was outstanding.

Our experience, however, was more exciting than some people might want because a Black Spitting Cobra joined my husband in the tent while he was resting reading. The staff had to kill it in the end since it would not exit but went under the platform tarp. We were then offered accommodation at their lodge, but we chose to stay and just moved into the other tent that had been recently vacated. We recognize that we were in the bush, and had signed statements to such, and besides, it has made a great story to tell.

The main drawback to a small tent bush experience like this is that little more than game drives can be offered. While we were very happy to experience Saruni Wild, and were particularly pleased with our guide, we were glad we were not there any longer because of the limited activity available. (Our one walk was very short and not terribly interesting.)"
