Our October 2017 trip

Kenya and 1 other country between 13 Oct 2017 and 25 Oct 2017

Trip rating: Excellent
"Very enjoyable trip combining a safari in two contrasting areas of Kenya (Samburu and Mara Naboisho) with a beach holiday in Zanzibar. it was a particular pleasure that we were not bothered by mosquitoes.

Expert Africa's recommendations and organisation were spot on."

Elephant Bedroom

"Lovely riverside location"

3 nights Arrived 14 Oct 2017
"Accommodation good, beds rather firm. Plunge pool appreciated.

Peaceful with animals very close, including elephant! Lovely outlook over river.

Guided by Anthony, an affable young man with very good English. Lovely sightings of a caracal (cat family) and greater kudu. Would have liked the option of a longer morning safari with a picnic breakfast."

Naboisho Camp

Naboisho Camp

"Outstanding bush camp"

4 nights Arrived 17 Oct 2017
"Excellent standard of accommodation and food.

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Sammy, a top class guide and driver.

Day trip to Masai Mara national park an unforgettable experience. Saw ten cheetahs, including the 'five musketeers' and Malaika with two mature cubs making a kill. Bird life prolific.

The cultural visit to a local village turned out to be a visit to a homestead which was interesting in itself but it was not at all clear how the family had benefited or would benefit from the payments.. There needs to be more information and clarification about this activity."
