Our travel agents were excellent! In planning our African safari, we spoke with several travel companies and selected this company because of their straight-forward, down-to-earth, thoughtful approach to ensure the experience would be optimal for us (no pushy sales or marketing tactics).
The experience this company created for us in Kenya and Uganda was absolutely incredible and life-changing.
There was not a hitch with transfers, meeting guides, flights, getting into our safari camps, the quality of the safari camps, etc. Truly a first-rate job. And of course the animals (including lions, leopard, elephants, giraffe, chimpanzees, gorillas, zebra, cheetah, etc.) and flowers/terrain were just surreal. We were able to enjoy everything so much more because the logistics were seamless!
This travel company ensured each location/safari camp would be most appropriate for our preferred travel style (more adventurous/active) and offer a unique experience. Below are the highlights from each location.
1. Amboseli National Park (Kenya): Seeing elephant herds and lion prides in their most natural and unabashed state. The groups we saw paid very little attention to us and it was beautiful to observe their natural behavior.
2. Mara Naboisho Conservancy (Kenya): Embarking on a walking safari (guided, of course!) to observe more of the nuances of the terrain and end up at a fly camp in the middle of nowhere with the clear stars above.
3. Kyambura Gorge (Uganda): Hiking in the gorge to track a Chimpanzee family. After two hours, we found them and spent a glorious hour observing their behavior, including the baby chimpanzee who was allowed by his mother to jump and roam freely in our presence.
4. Bwindi Forest (Uganda): Tracking a gorilla family! Watching the majestic silverback hold court and the rest of the family slowly moving from tree to tree. The gorilla children are fearless in grabbing branches and using them to propel forward.
We would make it longer! In all sincerity, there is nothing we would have changed. The entire experience flowed and evolved in a manner that expanded our minds and appreciation for the world and nature.
