Our trip was absolutely incredible, we have been waiting to go on this trip for two years now due to covid-19, and it exceeded every expectation we had.
We were so happy we got to visit Kenya and experience the city and culture of Nairobi. Everyone we met was extremely friendly and every meal we ate was delicious. We were fortunate enough to visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Centre, which were both amazing experiences getting to see the animals up close and hearing the wonderful stories behind each organization.
The Seychelles was one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. The beaches were serene and the water crystal clear, and each person was nicer than the next.
Kichwa Tembo was incredible, the staff were extremely attentive and helpful in anything we needed. We loved our wake up calls each morning with a coffee delivery before game drives, eating lunch each day surrounded by monkeys and warthogs on the beautiful premises, and lounging by the pool overlooking the animals roaming the Mara. We were fortunate to have Benson as our guide, and were shocked with how many animals we got to see!
The Four Seasons Seychelles was the most beautiful hotel we have had the pleasure to stay at. The service was next level, and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel special and celebrated on our honeymoon. Our villa was immaculate, with jaw dropping views and sunsets each night sipping champagne. Each meal was better than the next, we were blown away especially by the breakfast, and looked forward to waking up each morning to try something new. The beach and pool area was gorgeous and we enjoyed the live music as well as the attentive and friendly staff throughout our stay. We hope to be back soon!
We had the absolute pleasure of working with Claire Picknell to plan our honeymoon trip to Kenya and the Seychelles. Due to covid-19, we had to push back our trip another year, and throughout the whole process, Claire was super helpful and went out of her way to make us feel at ease and comfortable with everything. She was extremely timely and knowledgeable and was able to guide us through planning our dream trip. At times throughout the planning process we had asked Claire to provide us with a lot of different options within our budget and she was always super responsive and helpful on any request we had for her. She went out of her way to set up phone calls with us and would always respond to our emails in a timely manner. She was extremely knowledgeable with the area and provided us recommendations on what to do during some downtime as well as how to best prepare for our trip. We honestly don't know what we would have done without Claire through this whole process! We would love to work with Claire again to plan another trip in the future!
