Overall Impressions

Helen & I hade a fabulous trip. Everything went like clock work from the time we were met at the airport on arrival to the time we left. We were very impressed by Jester & Elias from Cheli & Peacock. Friendly, welcoming & efficient. The 2 Kicheche Camps surpassed all our expectations in every respect.

Countries Visited

Kenya

It's 16 years since I was last in Kenya & it seems to have changed very much for the better. Immigration coming into Kenya was friendly. The security was very good but not over intrusive.

Accommodation Visited

Eka Hotel

Although we were only here over night & left quite early in the morning our general impression was good. Again very friendly & efficient staff.

Kicheche Laikipia Camp

Loved this camp. The accommodation was superb & the food fantastic. Staff really great, friendly & again very professional nothing was too much trouble. Simon our guide was amazing not only with his wonderful knowledge on all the fauna & flora he was such great company laughing & joking with us engaging in interesting conversation. Andrew was really good company at dinner & so interesting to talk to.

Kicheche Mara Camp

We loved this camp too. Again the accommodation was superb & the food fantastic. Here, as in the other camp, the staff were really great. Very friendly & welcoming & very professional. Nothing was too much trouble. Particular praise goes to the guard who saw us to & from our tent in the evening. Helen was quite nervous he was so kind, talking & reassuring her. On our last evening, while we were having dinner 3 lions decided to come into camp. Again we have to thank the night guards along with Carys & Boniface who did a superb job taking control of the situation. Mind you it makes a very good story back home!! We were also particularly impressed with Carys & Boniface. They made you feel like you were part of a lovely family as if we had known them for years.

Hemingways Nairobi

To be honest what's not to like about this superb hotel. The suites & the food wow!! Wonderful

Staff Review

A big thank you must go to Claire for organising this wonderful adventure for us. It was outstanding. When ever I rang for information or reassurance she was so helpful & friendly. It's the first time Helen & I had made such a trip but Claire instilled so much confidence in us that we were never worried about any aspect of our holiday.
