The trip of a lifetime! We couldn't have asked for better honeymoon. Caroline truly helped make every detail of our trip extra special. It was the perfect balance of relaxation on the Kenyan coast and safari on the Masai Mara and in Nairobi. And Giraffe Manor was the cherry on top and the perfect way to wrap up our time in Kenya. Big thank you to Mahlatini and Caroline for all the wonderful memories!
Kenya is such a beautiful country and everywhere we went the people were so kind and welcoming. We loved getting to know the locals and learning about their culture and history.
The safari at Ol Seki was definitely one of the highlights of the trip! Deb, the camp director, is an amazing person and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. She even organized a private honeymoon dinner in our room with a bottle of champagne. Also our guide Raphy was the absolute best! He knew the Masai Mara inside and out and was able to easily find all the Big 5 and then some. He was also a fantastic photographer and took many photos for us that we will cherish. We couldn't have for a better first time safari experience and can't wait to do it again.
There are no words to describe how amazing Giraffe Manor was. We felt like we were in a fairytale! We got so much time to interact with the giraffes and the butlers were amazing at getting all the photos we wanted. The food there is also amazing and was some of the best we had on the trip. The new retreat is also beautiful, we loved the new cocktail bar and infinity pool. Would totally recommend to anyone looking for a bucket list experience!
The use of the day room gave us a chance to relax, workout and clean up before our long flight home. Being able to get some massages at the spa was great too.
Is it possible to give Caroline 6 stars? :-) She did an incredible job of helping us plan the honeymoon of our dreams in Kenya and we couldn't have been happier with her and Mahlatini. From deciding on destinations to navigating travel during covid, she made everything a breeze. She was so patient and understanding when my passport was delayed and was super responsive when we had questions during our trip. From the minute we arrived in Kenya, everything was so easy. I am the type of traveler who is used to planning everything myself but having Caroline's help allowed us to relax and really enjoy our trip without stressing over the details. She even worked with the properties to arrange special extras like a private dinner for our honeymoon. We've never worked with a better travel company and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to travel in Africa! Can't wait to plan our next trip with Caroline :-)
