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

Can't believe what we did and saw. All the big five plus so many more and lots of birds. Standing on the viewpoint at Amboseli with the wetlands, plains and Kilimanjaro made us feel that we were in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Nakuro and Masai Mara were equally impressive. They were all so different. A bit of an adventure was getting stuck on a rock five feet away from a pride of lions. Radio help was requested and other vans arrived. We kept an eye on the lions, who all looked as though they were wondering what the mad humans were up to, while we were bumped and pulled of the rock.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

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

Our guide Gideon was lovely and so knowledgeable, he also had great respect for the animals.

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

Fantastic holiday. All the lodges were great and the people lovely. Thanks for mentioning our 50th.We were celebrated all the way through with cakes, fruit, wine and even a serenade. Mauritius gave us a chance to relax on a white sandy beach with turquoise sea. The hotel was small and the staff very welcoming. All in all a holiday filled with brilliant memories.

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

We loved all of it, but seeing so many wild animals up close was wonderful.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If possible, don't go during holidays such as Christmas since almost everything is closed. We walked around a bit, but didn't have much to do that day.

Yes

Excellent
