Thank You Jeff, AND all the wonderful staff at Experience It! Tours, for another remarkable tour in Africa! We recently returned from a 2 week tour of Kenya that truly lived up to the old cliché of a “trip of a lifetime”. We covered a lot of ground visiting Tsavo East & West, Amboseli, Samburu, the Laikipia area, and the Masai Mara. The trip was designed so we had only one day of long road travel, but driving the African inter country highway is an experience in itself.
The accommodations were fantastic and varied. We stayed in business class hotels when in Nairobi, but when in the bush we stayed at Tented Camps, Lodges, and ranch houses. The ranch houses were luxurious, and the tented camps were an experience in themselves. We had in-tent showers and flush toilets, as well as wild animals roaming around (mostly at night) with guards for protection. The food was fantastic and varied at ALL the accommodations we stayed at.
But of course the main purpose for our visit was to experience the wild life and the twice daily game drives lived up to our expectations for that. We were fortunate enough to see the ‘Big 5’ as well as loads of other animals and birds. Another thrill was that we were able to experience a Wildebeest crossing in the Mara.
It would be remiss of me not to mention the wonderful Kenyan people. You will learn the meaning of the Swahili terms ‘Jambo’ and ‘Asante Sana’ very quickly as the people are very open, friendly, and very helpful. There is always a smile on their face.
While this may sound like a canned advertisement, we truly had a wonderful tour and hopefully will be able to return in the near future.
