Hi all, going on the cosmos/monarch holiday to tsavo safari then onto scorpio villas malindi. Did i get the message right that when u arrive in airport you will then be taken straight onto a safari with no suitcases. Rang cosmos and they never told me anything about this. We need clothing in a small bag for three days and also toiletries but where does our luggage go then if not with us. I think that people should be made aware of this when booking a safari/ holiday together as this has shocked me a little. Good job that i decided to check on the tripadvisor to find information out which has been very helpfull. Thanks to all the people for their reviews it does help !!

i would check with monarch as you may find this is the case , if so your cases will be locked away at there offices in mombasa and you pick them up on your way back , i would suggest everything you need you keep at top of suitcase and when you get there off load into a small bag

I have got contact deals for Lennie, but i would not pass them on. He is a con artist who takes your money, promises you the earth and then...........................disappears. Its your choice of course, but a group of us were ripped off by him by quite a large amount.......................................so i feel obliged to pass on the info

Thanks for all you input into our holiday to the Safari / Holiday at the Scorpio Villas. We will take onboard all the info that has been posted and choose our guides or trips with caution. By the way does anyone Know how to get a Visa booked for Kenya as we have tried on the African Consolate Forum but all applications seem to be for Americans. We thought we would save time by filling in the Visa Application now before we go out to Kenya. Has anyone got any advice for us on this matter.

Hi Whittsy Just tuned into the forum again as thinking of returning to Kenya early next year. Can you tell me if you booked with a tour company or yourself via internet? £940 sounds amazingly cheap for the holiday you described! Many thanks
