Reviews for Kenya luxury safari and beach holiday, 10 days


review 22 Jul 2013

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

Getting up close and personal with the animals both on safari, especially in Ndutu where it is possible to off road, but also in the tented accommodation where we were surrounded by frolicking vervet monkeys, bush babies, mongooses and even a herd of elephants on one particularly memorable morning!

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

Opt for the tented accommodation options - they were our favourites.

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

We were pleased that the company was Kenyan-owned, and that we were able to support lots of the smaller accommodation options where we were able to engage more personally with local staff, whereas the large hotels are a little impersonal. The smaller accommodation options were also more environmentally cautious about using water and electricity.

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

Fantastic - we were amazed that a holiday that was put together at such short notice (we received booking confirmation on the Friday and left at 6am on Sunday morning) could be so perfect. It was a real luxury having our own guide and vehicle, the itinerary was fantastic and our guide was really flexible and suggested little changes which worked out even better for our particular interests, the accommodation was really lovely, the food was great and we were taken care of from start to finish wonderfully.
