What our customers say:


Thank you for organising a fabulous Safari - had the time of my life. Each day brought new adventures and we thought it couldn't get any better after seeing an elephant matriarch with 5 babies.

The following day our driver, Peter, saw 3 warthogs running and followed them. We then found 3 cheetahs. We were alone - only us, the cheetahs, the horizon and Mount Kilimanjaro! We thought the best part of our holiday was over when the Safari finished but the beach part was exhilarating too. My son got his diving certificate and swam with whale sharks.

There were no hiccups, even our flight was good.
Thank you Thank you

We had a lovely time on vacation. Thanks for doing such a terrific job organizing everything for us. We did not have to worry about anything the entire trip. Also, the accomodations you booked for us were fabulous. Since we were camping for 6 days, it was nice to go somewhere plush the rest of the time.

Both Duncan and our guide Daniel (for the Kilimanjaro climb) were exceptional. They stood out from the rest of the guides with regards to performance.

Thanks very much.

Thanks for your e-mail

We had a brilliant time. Our driver, Duncan Mureithi, made all the difference. As you know, I have been traveling to Kenya regularly since 1984 (I have had at least 18 safaris in this time) and whilst the standard of drivers is improving generally, I have yet to have a driver as good as Duncan. We will have safaris in the future, and I am regularly asked by friends and colleague to draw up itineraries, and I will request Duncan every time.


I think in the future we will prefer to stay at the Ark rather than at the Tree Tops. In particular, Tree Tops no longer has the genet or the Bush baby. The accommodation at the Ark is also superior.

Lake Nakuru Lodge was not as good as the others. The Lake Nakuru Reserve it self, however, was quite brilliant.

The trip to Crescent Island is an absolute must. It makes a refreshing change and is quite delightful.

Mara Simba Lodge is also very good but the climax was Mara Safari Club. The welcome and hospitality everywhere was excellent but the Mara Safari Club surpassed everything.

A fantastic trip. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Best wishes

David

A big big thank you for organising our safari in Kenya. We had a
wonderful time and the accommodation was super. The safari went far
beyond our expectations and we have only you to thank.

We would like to bring to your attention that the driver who transferred
us from Southern Palms to the Ukunda Air Strip was very helpful and
friendly. He stayed with us until our flight departed and dealt with
ticket passes on our behalf. If it's possible I would like you to pass
our thanks onto the company.

Thank you once again - it was an adventure we will never forget.

Regards,
Beverley

JAMBO!
I had the most wonderful holiday, thanks to you and your very capable and
helpful coworkers! It truly was an awesome experience. I want to go back,
soon!
Duncan was a wonderful guide, and I have made a new friend in him.
All the accommodations ( Samburu, Ark, Lake Nakuru, Mara Simba, Pinewood, Karafuu) were wonderful (with the exception of Mtoni Marine
in Zanzibar for a few hours). They are starting some major renovations, so maybe
booking folks there might not be a good idea for a while. Thank you for
approving my room change to the Palm Club rooms.
I will always treasure my memories from my first trip to Africa. Thank you
for making so wonderful.

My wife and I just wanted to thank you for putting together such a wonderful honeymoon package for us. Kenya was unbelievable! Our drivers (Stephen and Duncan) were both fantastic. They were very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. They both had a great sense of humor as well. They made us feel very comfortable. What also impressed us was there respect for the animals. The same cannot be said for all of the drivers in the game reserves

All of our accommodations were excellent and the service was fabulous. The Loldia House was beautiful and Peter was a great host. Justin at Pinewood Village was also great. Wish we could have stayed a few more days at Pinewood.

Also wanted to let you know that Stephen, Duncan, Peter, and Justin had nothing but good things to say about you and Rajair. I'm glad we found you. We will definitely recommend you and your company to anyone interested in a Safari.

Thanks again,

A few comments on our recent trip to Kenya.

Flight out: Excellent,

Arrival at Nairobi : Warm welcome from our guide (Duncan) and our driver (Steven). Quickly made to feel at home. The wildlife books made available to us were very much appreciated.

Lake Naivasha: An awesome start to the holiday. Nice lodge with super grounds full of wildlife. Food, quite good. The boat trip out to Crescent Island followed by the walking safari with "Moses" was the highlight of the tour for me. The game at close quarters was a real emotional experience. The bird life was truly amazing. "Moses" was such a knowledgeable guide. We saw seven Hippos on the way home.

Aberdares and the Ark: good journey via Thompson falls and the equator. The Aberdares Country Club was very beautiful. The flowering shrubs etc. were quite spectacular. The lunch was first class. The Ark was really good fun great views of herd of elephant and much wildlife, especially at 4.00am. We and the Captain (Tony), were the only ones to see the leopard along side the building, only ten feet away, at around 7.30am. The bird life was amazing. The accommodation was surprisingly good and the dinner was Michelin Guide standard.

Samburu : The journey went well despite the distance, thanks to sensible driving by Steven. The Intrepids was great fun. We were so pleased you persuaded us to stop there. The lodge and grounds were beautiful and the staff, without exception, were the best. The food was superb throughout. The service was the best ever. The game drives took us over a huge area because Duncan and Steven were looking for "the cats". Over our two days neither lions nor cheetahs were sighted. We had great close-ups of a leopard. The rest of the game, the gazelles, the giraffes, the Oryx, the Grevy's zebra etc were there in abundance. Several large crocodiles and a magnificent herd of elephants within yards of us. The bird life was mind-boggling. We were sad to leave.

Lake Nakuru: A long journey made tolerable by our drivers. Reasonable hotel and the accommodation was OK. The game drive was spectacular. First a large adult leopard, followed by around a million flamingos and many other water birds, seventeen Rhinos including some youngsters, game of all sorts and then a pride of five female and two male lions coming up to full maturity. Finally another leopard stalking a waterbuck. A beautiful place


Masai Mara : What can one say ? The Mara Simba was superb. Full marks to the staff. The food was good but not exceptional. The food was good but not exceptional. The accommodation was excellent. The game watching was superb. So many wonderful views of prides of lions and cheetahs and so much beautiful game everywhere in glorious surroundings. The balloon flight was great fun even though we saw little game. The Rhino trip was one of the highlights (thanks to Duncan and Steven). The bird life was truly amazing and the crocodile at the Mara Simba went well with the Gin and tonics.

At this stage we were taken to the airport via "the boss's house" to collect our driving gear. The "boss" wished us well at Pinewood and left us to say our goodbyes to Duncan and Steven. If/when we return, we shall stipulate that these two lovely people shall be our guides.

Good flight to Mombasa and met by Pinewood rep. Easy journey to Galu.

Pinewood Lodge : we are so pleased you recommended this hotel. The welcome was as it should be. Peter was very warm and sincere and stayed that way throughout our week there. He could not have been more helpful but the same applies to all the staff, including the owner. Our steward and chef were absolute gems. The accommodation was great. The facilities were excellent. We had a great week there unwinding.

The diving was disappointing because of the adverse weather conditions out in the Indian Ocean (there was a cyclone over the Maldives) which created a huge swell on the sea with poor visibility underwater. The Pinewood representative of the dive-centre (Anita) was first class and great help.

We had a good flight home and you will be pleased to hear that we are discussing a return trip in the near-future, either to Masai at migration time or, my choice, to the game reserves of Tanzania in the dry season.

All in all it was a great holiday, with no hiccups and the only downside was the staff at Lake Nakuru.

Yours sincerely
Colin Griffiths
