Our tour guide, Makenzy, was really amazing.
Our cook, John, surprised us with a very good food every single day.
Our driver, Tom, was also amazing.
These three people really made our trip.”
Hess was amazing. He was very organized and efficient. Very impressed by his people skills and his ability resolve issues and avoid any conflicts. I know that some of our group thought that he was not well organized or interactive enough. I learned that they were young and this was their first time traveling with a tour. We have traveled several times with Gate One, Roads Scholars, and Affordable Asia, so we have extensive experiences in which to make a comparison. Hess was highly organized, what they took as complacent, was his astute awareness as to when to back off and let us have alone time or chances to interact with each other. Everything we requested was accomplished. How he kept it all straight is beyond most people's abilities. One of the best guides we have ever had. ”
Fantastic! Great group and tour. Mackenzie, Tom and Mwai were brilliant. Great, fresh meals, good driving even on very rough "roads" and good instruction. You need to very carefully read your trip notes to get the best out of this tour. Also apply for the (new?) East African visa which lets you into Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda on a multi-entry basis. There are a lot of early starts and long drives on this tour. There was only one real relaxing day but I'm so glad I went. The gorillas were amazing as was the rest of the wildlife. All the locals we met were very friendly and obliging - even if it cost you a dollar!”
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.
