Overall Impressions

It was more than any of us ever expected from the magnitude of animals to the luxury of the camps , to the quality of the food and to the personal touch of having our own waiter and guide each day

Countries Visited

Kenya

The vastness of where we stayed in Kenya was unimaginable at Tortillas camp and then at Masai Mara having the opportunity to see Kilimanjaro each day was some thing not to be forgotten and most importantly were the people- wonderful welcoming kind and genuine!

Accommodation Visited

Tamarind Tree Hotel

Clean friendly and accommodating as we did not arrive until nearly midnight and they kept the kitchen open for us, and then in the morning they had bag breakfast and coffee and tea made for us.

Tortilis Camp

Exceptional! Our private house was a wonder, the watering hole where you could see the parade of animals all day and evening was fantastic, The food was superb and the guide and waiter assigned to us were terrific, our safari walk with a Maasai to our sundowner was exceptional.

Sand River Masai Mara

We were at Little Sand River which was a little more private and quiet than big Sand River so that was nice. The tent... oh my goodness, was just beautiful literally three rooms, we love the outdoor shower the entire staff were so very nice! Joseph our waiter -Jeremiah the manager and Joel our guide treated us great. The chef will come out each day to ask us about our meal to tell us about the dinner menu-so special.

Staff Review

Steve was there for us responding so regularly to all of our questions regarding Covid and accommodations, tipping and logistics, he helped us navigate the cancellation of our trip in 2020 and got us an even better trip for 2021. He was accommodating with payment, with responding to us when we heard about UK not flying to Kenya and the quarantine in Nairobi. He had to work extra hard with all of the changes from the cancellation of 2020 to 2021 the cancellation of our booked flights from Heathrow to new flights from Paris and keeping up with all of the constant changes in Covid rules and regulations. Steve picked to luxury safari camps for us that far exceeded our expectations and he suggested the Masai blessing ceremony for my daughter's wedding which was one of the most spectacular experiences a family could have! If I have the luxury of planning another trip with Mahlatini I will request Steve.
