I had a great trip to Masai Mara in June 2021. I opted for the Toyota LandCruiser Jeep and was not disappointed. Some other cars got stuck in the mud in the reserve and we helped them out (but we did not have rain the entire trip). The driver and guide Leonard was very knowledgeable and helped us to have a memorable experience. In the first day we had lunch on the way to Masai Mara at a restaurant, followed by an afternoon game drive. The people from the group were split to 3 different camps and I landed at Linciada Camp, the same as in my previous trip. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Sleeping in the tent was very comfortable. There were Maasai people in the camp among the staff, which added to the experience. The second day we had a full day of game drives, with so many sightings, such as lions, cheetahs with their prey, elephants, giraffes, hippos and crocodiles at the Mara river. I warmly recommend this safari also in 2021, since it never disappoints!
I had a wonderful weekend safari with Tony from Perfect Wilderness Tours. The value for money was spot on. Once we arrived at AA Amboseli Lodge, lunch was provided, then time out before a late afternoon/early safari. So many elephants! The landscape is something else and to see many animals wandering was great. After dinner, the Masai men came in and performed a show explaining their dances and gave a little insight to their lives. Yes you are invited to 'look' at their crafts they bring in, but that's part of the charm, I didn't mind, they weren't pushy and you could barter well. An early start saw us at the park for 7am and we seriously drove non-stop for over 5hrs. Too many sights to mention, all amazing, but was lucky to see a mum and baby hippo out of the swamp. Sadly no lion sightings but get it can be like a needle in a haystack. I was solo on my tour and Tony was knowledgeable, accommodating with my questions and professional. Definitely recommend!
Unfortunately I waited until the last minute (Night before) to organize Sunrise game drive at Nairobi National Park. However, We were connected with an excellent guide who took us on an outstanding drive where we viewed lions, rhinos, giraffes, and other large and small animals in spite of a rainy morning (with lots of mud). Drive and subsequent visit to Giraffe center were excellent. Guides were knowledgeable and professional. Well done!
I have traveled all over the world and I enjoyed this experience just about all day long. I will share this event and most definitively recommended it !!!
We had a great time with our driver and tour guide Mundia (spelling?). He was kind and knowledgeable and brought us to great places to spot animals.
