Loved it! Our crew was fantastic...Leah, our Lead kept us organized and on schedule with good humour; our cook Reuben kept us well fed with tasty, satisfying meals prepared with great care and pride; Isa, our driver expertly manoeuvred the overland vehicle over all kinds of terrain ensuring we arrived at our destinations safely. They were warm, welcoming and gracious hosts who did everything they could to ensure we enjoyed our trip.
Being there during the migration meant that we got to see the "Big 5"! Our game driver, William was wonderful and his experience was invaluable.
The safari camps were great. Most had shower and toilet facilities, free wifi and a place to get a beverage after setting up camp.
The optional sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Maasai Mara followed by a champagne breakfast was worth every penny.
There were a lot of early mornings and long days but all worth it. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
My only suggestion to enhance this package would be to offer optional upgraded accommodations for pre and post safari nights.
Many thanks to travel consultant Sam at OTG for his assistance in arranging this memorable vacation!”
I just wanted to write and say that Leah was an absolutely amazing Tour Guide. It seems she was born for this job - she is approachable, friendly, knowledgeable and has a laugh with the guests. The first day of our trip our truck broke down - she handled this with a cool head and had a solution in place almost immediately. Her approach to every aspect of the tour - timings, long days, the history and culture of both Kenya and Tanzania, was without fault. She is an extremely valuable asset to your organisation and I am grateful to have shared my African safari with her. ”
I was one of 6 people that travelled 57 days on the Great African Expedition from Nairobi, Kenya to Capetown, South Africa.
What an absolutely fantastic trip, from day 1 to the end. We saw the "big 5" multiple times and met some lovely people along the way.
I've got nothing but high praise for our Group Leader, Hes, similarly, Malinga, our cook, was a terrific guy that kept us well fed in sometimes difficult circumstances. Finally, Steve, our driver, was exceptional and kept us safe all the way.
Overall, I had a Fantastic time.
I was the oldest guy on the the truck and had an unbelievably incredible time.”
Africa has some of the best wildlife on the planet from big cats to massive elephants and from the unpredictable buffalo to the rare black rhino. The Big Five are always high on people's bucket list for things to see but there's plenty more magnificent creatures to meet on safari in Africa and our handy wildlife guide tells you all you need to know from where to go for which animals and when best to go.
