Reviews for Wildlife safari and beach vacation in Kenya


review 27 Nov 2021

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

Seeing the amazing wildlife and birds. I haven't been to Africa in 4 years and was thrilled to be back. Kenya has a vastness of nature and a wildness that is amazing.

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

I would ask to add on an extra night in Maasai Mara and Amboseli.

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

Yes, definitely. The safari company is Kenyan, our guide was Kenyan and the lodges employ people from the local communities. We also visited a Maasai village, which not only benefitted the village but also the whole community. Going to the national parks and staying in the conservancies supported conservation.

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

We loved it and would highly recommend it. The communication from the safari company was brilliant and they patiently answered all my questions and added an extra night on to the itinerary for us. Our guide, Sameer, was very knowledgeable and when we told him we were interested in birds as well, ensured we saw many birds. He was great at identifying them including the LBJs. The camps were all great, especially the ones in the Mara and Amboseli. We are vegan and were well catered for everywhere, especially in the Maasai Mara where the chef would come out every night to chat to us about our meals. We can't wait to go back and will use the same safari company as they were excellent.
