Amazing… simply amazing… OK, OK let me start from the beginning. This past thanksgiving my family took a trip to Nairobi Kenya & Sharova Shaba was chosen to help us unwind. For anyone considering a trip to Kenya, go there… like seriously if you seek a retreat, yep this is it… an adventure, they got that too… massages to unwind, yep that’s there… game drive to see the amazing wildlife please… it’s what they are known for!
Now I can go on & on about the 5 star amenities from the amazing rooms… brilliant views to fantastic cuisines but all that is eclipsed by the staff. One of the biggest scares or worries of being in another country is how will I be treated?
Well we were treated like royalty from the room upgrade to the complementary game drive [totally our fault… we tried to cut costs by picking a local guy for the game drive & he left us hanging but Anthony the manager [with no reason or financial gain] stated he takes each residents experience personally & he did not want us going back to Philadelphia with a bad experience… yeah… he said that & got us an armed guard for the game drive totally complementary now that’s the kind of stuff that creates brand loyalty.
It was clear from the beginning the type of ship Anthony runs…. Mwai his right hand went above & beyond to make our stay brilliant, Chady our local guide made it a point to show up whenever needed with great advise & tips… but my biggest thanks, the true gem we found at Sharova Saba… George, or Chicken George to those who are in the know…. If you find yourself in the area, find George the bar tender! Nothing can truly reflect the hospitality & warmth he put towards my family.
George… you’re the man & as I promised you… there is a hot cheese steak in Philly for when you come to visit…
