Masai Mara, Kenya - October 2015

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 2-Oct-2015 and 12-Oct-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We are seasoned travellers and have been on many safaris previously.

However, we had never seen the migrational activity. We were pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed Kenya (maybe not Nairobi though). The quality of the game viewing, big cats, river crossings and some rare encounters - serval cat, bat eared fox den etc made it a very special trip. The highlights would be the wildebeest crossing the river, the big cat population and Mara Plains camp, which is exceptional.

Namibia - Sossusvlei to Angola -J uly 2014

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 19-Jul-2014 and 2-Aug-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

A great trip starting in the south, working up the Skeleton coast to Angola and back south to Etosha. The highlight is the scenery which is breath taking. Also though for us, seasoned safari travellers, we wanted to see rhino and we had some close contact and saw black and white rhino and at Little Ongava, we saw the two together.
If you are a keen photographer there are some stunning opportunities.
If you are keen on game and predators there are better countries to visit but I would recommend the broader view; literally, and I am sure we will end up back there.
Best camps: Little Kulala and Serra Cafema
Standout moments; scenery especially Sossusvlei and Skelton coast, Himba people, rhino, quad bikes
