Our trip with this Africa safari travel planner in conjunction with their tour operator was fantastic. They arranged exactly what we were looking for and reasonably priced for two people. We just returned 2 days ago and are still basking in the wonder of it all! They arranged most of our stay at tented sites which were wonderful, not too basic and very comfortable.
Our agents and all the staff at the company cheerfully answered all our questions and encouraged us to call any time, Our agent even gave us is personal cell phone number. The entire trip was arranged within 4 or 5 weeks of our original contact with them so we caught the tailend of the great migration and just missed the beginning of the short rainy season, and didn't have to wait until 2016 to go.
We spent the first 2 nights in Nairobi at the Karen Cottages. That gave us a chance to recuperate some and also visit the Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Manor and the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. Also not to miss are the Carnivore Restaurant (amazing selection of meats) and the Tamarind Restaurant.
The stays at the tented sites of Porini Rhino Camp, Ol Pejeta Conservancy (very comfortable and home like, with terrific staff and gourmet meals) and Kichwa Tembo, Maasai Mara (Luxury tents, house like intereriors, staff at your beck and call). The games drives at both places were amazing and our guides were very personable and knowledgeable. Thank you to to our guides at Porini Rhino camp for wonderful games drives, breakfast in the bush and sundowners on the savanaughs. Thank you to our driver for wonderful games drives, lunch in the field and keeping us on our toes pointing out the animals. Thank you to all for sharing your country, your knowledge and yourselves with us, making for a very memorable trip.
I think I would stay mainly at the Porini Tented Camps for their smaller more homey atmosphere. I would also lie to visit Tanzania.
