Overall Impressions

Highlights include seeing the Big 5 as-well as a river crossing of thousands of wildebeest in the Masai Mara. The camp and tent at Il Moran were excellent. We were also welcomed at House of Waine's biggest suite which was a nice surprise. The Pool Villa by the Rocks at the Banyan Tree Seychelles also had been recently renovated with a brand new outdoor jacuzzi that was very nice and we spent late afternoon there unwinding after touring the islands beaches most days. Island Hopping in the Seychelles was also a highlight as we visited Praslin and La Digue. All in all the trip was excellent.

Countries Visited

Accommodation Visited

Il Moran Camp

Il Moran Camp was excellent with great, spacious and very comfortable tents. Lots of space between the tents, excellent game drives/guides as-well as great food. Can't fault anything about the facility.

House of Waine

Claire upgraded us to the House of Waine given the renovation work at Palacina Suites. The property was excellent with very spacious rooms and a modern and lovely bathroom. The gardens were also beautiful.

Banyan Tree Seychelles

The Banyan Tree is perfect for honeymooners with a very romantic ambiance. The resort is perfect for couples and provides lots of privacy. Given the vast size of the property it also feels very spacious which provides an exclusive feel. The Pool Villa by the Rocks (#209) had an amazing view and complete privacy. The recent renovations have also resulted in an upgrade in the furnishings as-well as a brand new outdoor jacuzzi that is lovely. The beach is pristine and the Thai Restaurant (Saffron) is superb. The massages by the Thai masseuses at the Spa were also excellent.

Staff Review

Claire was superb. She was very helpful, quick to respond and highly knowledgeable with the properties and her recommendations.
