1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


I can't choose one particular moment that was more exciting than another. It was all so wonderful. The game drive with Tabula and Jacob left us in awe. They
knew where to go to find the migrating hordes of zebras, wildebeests, giraffes and elephants. The lion and hyena spottings were breathtaking as well. But
staying in James' family compound in Ewangan was also quite a thrill. We loved our walking safari with Jacob, during which he told us so many fascinating
things about Maasai customs and plant usage. We even saw a giraffe and some 'bumbas' (warthogs) on that walk.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Bring along some school supplies for the children at the preschool--notebooks, pencils, sharpeners, pens, crayons, small books. They will be much
appreciated.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, I do feel as if the proceeds from our stay went toward very worthy uses. All of the employees are local Maasai who benefit directly, and 25% of the trips profits are channeled back into community projects, like the health center, IT center, clean water wells, etc.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


I would rate our stay with 10,000 stars if I could! It was exceptional! I have traveled all over the world, and I've never enjoyed an experience quite like our stay in the village.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Arriving in the village - the warmth of the welcome, the pleasure of staying in a manyatta (mud hut). Also the activities are wonderful - walks amongst the zebra, milking cows, firing bows and arrows, lighting fires. Really good fun!!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


I went for 4 nights - 2 in the camp and 2 in the village. The camp is great - paraffin lamps, good food and comfy beds. You can get the lie of the land and start to get to know your hosts. But don't miss out on staying in the village - unforgettable.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Totally - the experience is designed by the Maasai to showcase their wonderful culture. And all profits go the them. They use the money to fund a school, water pump and health clinic. Compare this (v reasonably priced) experience to the ridiculous expense of lavish camps in the national park. (Semadep is only 2km from the park gates by the way, and they'll organize safari drives.)

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


It was my best ever travel experience, and I am a travel writer. I made new friends and learned so much, all in a relaxed environment.
