  • Dear Mary, we want to thank you so very much for an outstanding experience!!!!! You were so lovely to work with during all of the planning and some of our last minute church changes! What an incredible experience we had!!!!! All of our transports were right on time, clean, and courteous. We learned so much local flavor in talking with our drivers. Virunga Lodge was spectacular. Every detail was seen to. They provided us with spats for the gorilla hike and even cleaned our boots upon return. We sat with groups of other travelers so that was fun to get to know people from all over. FYI: They now have power strips in the rooms and loan out battery operated hair blowers, Both the golden monkey safari and the gorilla safari were fabulous. Very well coordinated and we felt totally safe. We really over-thought the experience before we went…it was a breeze. Ngare Serian was our absolute favorite among favorites. Adrian runs a great lodge. The aaccommodations were so spectacular right on the Mara River. The guide and driver were so well prepared and courteous. Being guided and at night being protected by the Masai warriors was a fun treat. We felt the experience was very authentic. We were totally blessed by a great migration of zebras. We watched 4000-5000 zebras cross over a 2 hour period at the main crossing. I know timing is everything…and we had the timing. We skipped the tree house. It is pretty rough and we so loved our room we did not want to miss a day staying there. Emakoka was a perfect end to the trip. Nairobi is such a busy city we were glad to be able to spend our last night in their peaceful surroundings. We took a late afternoon game drive. The food looked great and the service was so classy. I was a little under the weather that day and did not get a chance to enjoy all of the great food. But Marv said it was great. I recovered the following morning and breakfast was terrific! I would be happy to post any high recommendations I can on whatever sites would be helpful to you and your company. You are the finest! Thank you so much.

Introduction

Introduction to the spectacular and diverse country of Kenya

From rugged hills and montane forests to endless savannah plains, Kenya offers incredible physical diversity. The scenery is breath-taking and the wildlife viewing is some of the finest available in the world, with the Masai Mara leading an impressive list of great safari areas. Walking safaris, horse riding safaris and mountain trekking will appeal to the more adventurous, and cultural interaction with the charismatic Maasai or Samburu is highly likely on any safari. For those looking for relaxation, the glistening white sands of the Indian Ocean coastline beckon.

Kenya’s safari history goes back to the early 1900’s and its fine tradition of personal guiding and warm hospitality still exists today. While a few wildlife parks have become commercially busy, it is a mistake to assume that exclusive safari regions, remote wilderness areas and intimate safari properties do not exist. Kenya caters for the experienced enthusiast just as easily as the first-time visitor.

Easy to reach from Europe and with a varied and well-organised internal tourism infrastructure, Kenya safaris deliver good value for money compared to other comparable destinations. In particular, Kenya offers some of the most cost effective ‘safari and beach’ combinations. Whether budget is important to you or not, this ability to easily combine incredible game-viewing with beautiful beaches has always made Kenya a wonderful family holiday or honeymoon destination.

So whether you’re looking for a specialist wildlife experience, a ‘bush & beach’ special celebration holiday, or perhaps a wonderful African adventure as a family, Kenya is the perfect destination to consider.
