Bernard of Lion Trails Safaris arranged a January 2014 Kenyan safari for our family of five (four adults and one child). It was EVERYTHING we had hoped for, and more! Lodging at Tortilis and Ashnil Mara camps was wonderful and the pre-arranged details were exactly as Bernard and I had discussed. The drivers at both camps were exceptional and we appreciated their eagerness to share their extensive knowledge about the animals with us. The drivers were always very sensitive to our needs and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. All of the camp staff were gracious and helped to make our stay special.
Driver Martin was a delight! He looked after us so well - we felt very safe in his hands. He was patient with our endless questions and accommodated our every request. His knowledge and friendly manner contributed to our overall impression of an extraordinary country and a remarkable people. He is a jewel!
Most of all, our trip went so well thanks specifically to Bernard himself. I was a bit anxious at first to wire the funds to Lion Trails Safaris (something I had never done and, I suspect, most Americans have not done either). In fact, my bank tried to talk me out of it, and advised me that the money would most likely never reach its intended destination. At that point, however, I had been so impressed with Bernard's patience and professionalism in communicating all the safari details with me via email - I felt the utmost confidence in him and was willing to "take a chance". So glad I did! He made all the desired arrangements and my family had a fantastic, stress-free trip. I definitely highly recommend Lion Trails Safaris to anyone looking for a special once-in-a-lifetime trip.
