Reviews for Family safari in Kenya with the Maasai
Tom Gibson review 27 Sep 2018
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?It was all absolutely amazing. The bits that still jump are, seeing a one week old baby cheetah, which was breathtaking and the highlight of game drives. The bush dinner we had on our last night and sitting around the camp fire, with just my family. We were outnumbered two to one and sat and talked with them, we were interrupted by their spontaneous outbursts into song and the sounds of a nearby lion roaring. Our guide, Manfred, appeared to have a sixth sense for spotting wildlife and we had seen two prides of lions before even arriving at the first camp. Ben, who took care of us there, as well as James, Mike, at Wilderness camp and Joseph, at Eagle View, couldnít have been nicer or more welcoming.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?Get plenty of pictures but donít be afraid to put the camera down and soak it all in. Also, take any chance to get out of the vehicle is thrilling, the walking safari and breakfast in the Savannah gave us goosebumps. If you're travelling in the British summer then bring some very warm clothes for the evenings and early morning starts.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?Yes, without doubt. Many of the people we met owned the land and the camps provided them with jobs. The forest being planted on the outskirts of the Maasai Mara, as well as the eco friendly camps also have a positive environmental impact.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?Amazing. A once in a lifetime experience.
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
