Overall Impressions

A very enjoyable and expertly organised safari holiday. We were meeted and greeted at every stage which adds immeasurably to the experience. The highlight was our three nights at Sala's camp, a small camp but with a very personal atmosphere and excellent wildlife experience. The latter was enhanced by the guides Sammy and Mrefu from whom we learnt a lot. Sasaab Lodge was also beautiful with very different vistas and wildlife. One of the highlights here was our sundowners from a large rock high above the river with our friendly and expert guides. Mara Bushtops had excellent accomodation but was outside the Masai Mara Reserve entailing a longer drive to get into the reserve, however the Conservancy (within which Bushtops is situated) itself has plentiful wildlife passing through and good birds.

Countries Visited

Kenya 5

Very beautiful in the bush and wonderful people we met in Masai Mara and Sambura. Loved the animals and birds helped by expert guiding by the rangers.

Accommodation Visited

Giraffe Manor 5

A very short stay but room very comfotable and we enjoyed the giraffes over breakfast.

Sasaab 5

We loved the accomodation and the view tho room quite hot at night. An overhead fan would have been useful. Good food and excellent service

Sala's Camp 5

Tents very comfortable, particularly after we moved into honeymoon tent(not like ordinary camping). Good food and communal atmosphere. Very personal wildlife experience

Mara Bushtops 4

More hotel like than other camps particularly reception and restaurant areas. Same menu for lunch and dinner was a little odd. Could have done with smaller lighter meals at lunch. Lodge itself (Fox) very comfortable with excellent views and we did enjoy the hottub and outside shower.

The Boma Nairobi 5

Perfect for our needs

Staff Review 5

Jamie insights and suggestions helped to make this a memorable trip. Each of the different camps had its own special features and we enjoyed them all tho Sala's was our favourite. His insistence that we take a day room before departure was fully justified (the Boma Hotel was perfect for this purpose).
