It sounds cliche, but there were so many memorable moments! Itís very difficult to chose just one. However, one of the experiences had us in tears of joy. We were watching a large groups of elephants at a watering hole in Amboseli, and a Tusker elephant joined the group! It was a magical experience

Take precautions against wind burn as well as the sun!

Absolutely! Seeing rare animals such as the Tusker Elephant shows the conservancies are doing an amazing job

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

Seeing a cheetah hunt and kill.

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

Check timings if you want to see wildebeest migration. If you are able to go outside of the school holidays, the reduction in numbers of people at the camps and everywhere generally is very pleasant.

Yes

review 21 Feb 2013

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

We were of course expecting to enjoy seeing the wildlife, but our week's holiday provided much more than that. The Porini camps we stayed at were wonderful - eco-friendly, lovely setting on private conservancies, employing people from the local Massai communities. The safari buckets for showers reminded us how precious water is, the bush landing strips and the small planes were a great experience, the visit to the elephant orphanage to adopt an elephant was incredible.

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

Stay at the Porini camps if possible - they are small and usually the only camp on the conservancy so you are not surrounded by 9 other jeeps looking at the same animals. They also take you on night game drives, which you cannot do in the reserves, which is a whole new experience. Don't bother with the balloon trip in the Mara unless it is in the great migration period. It is very expensive, and we saw few animals from above. The view was great, but then so is the view from the small planes flying you in and out of the camps.

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

In the Porini camps a definite yes. Not so much at the Samburu Intrepids camp, which I gather is owned by the Kenyatta family, hence I doubt that the bulk of the profits end up in the pockets of the local people.

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

Wonderful experience, well worth the months of planning and the overall cost.
