I came upon this safari travel company from Zicasso, whom I recall I noted from a Forbes article. After sending out a few generic emails regarding a possible Africa trip, I quickly decided upon this company. The reason at that time was they were super responsive to my vague requests. The owner and her lead person both were knowledgeable and in fact made suggestions that I generally followed.
Our trip morphed from wanting to go to Victoria Falls (and visit Africa for the first time ) to going to Ethiopia visiting the local tribes Omo valley and Addis Ababa (sounded nice ) and then to a short Kenya visit to see some Animals on Safari. Something about water levels at Victoria Falls.
Our travel agency was very accommodating on my needs and timing. Indeed, I spent less time than recommended. I spent a total of 12 days from Addis arrival to departing Nairobi. My suggestion is to spend more time in OMO valley ( We spent a total of 6 days to/from Addis interacting and viewing local tribes and people in nearby towns. The Omo valley visit is a bunch of somewhat rough roads, and backwards type places . Addis for parts of 1 day coming - going is enough.. The Safari to Africa and Nairobi for a total of 3 days was fine for us. The Masai - Mari game reserve and Masai People are interesting , high class and cost and easy to take.
Conclusion. This is the first trip that I used and depended upon a travel agent to do trip suggestions and arrange details for me. Most definitely the trip went well, there were just no complications ( OK maybe a few things were not perfect - my partner just could not totally get over our tenting with a real family - Where is the bathroom- Really? ) and all went as planned. All I had to do was get our butts to Addis and from Nairobi, and I easily handle this. Our travel company handled all little type details and sent us all sorts of documentation -daily guide information, numbers ,addresses , guides and all sots of emergency type information which we did not need to use.
So this company gets an outstanding from me and also a personal note of thanks that I did call tell tell hem. Perry
