I been now the second time in Kenya and enjoyed again the perfect service from Australken Tours & Travel Ltd. in Nairobi.
It is always a very good experience and feeling to be perfectly served by this company.
We been this time in Nakuru and Masai Mara.
Our tour started from Nairobi and we did a nice trip to Nakuru, not missing the overwhelming view down to the Rift Valley on the way.
After arival and a nice lunch we did our first game view. Just lovely, a nice mix of forest and plain area with rhinos, buffalo, zebra, flamingo, baboon, lots of birds and much much more. A good starting point to fall in love to the African wildlife.
The driver was perfect in handling our wishes and advising us how to get the best out of our trip.
We could not have asked for more, thanks a lot.
Sarova Lion Hill Lodge, the place we been for this night, is a properly location to relax with a nice sunset view and excelent buffet lunch.
Next day we went to Masai Mara, already spoiled by Nakuru but now even more impressed.
I read quite a lot about Masai Mara and we can just agree, a wonderfull place on this planet.
Wildlife in plenty and not so much crowded at the moment.
The ones who love to see the big African animals like elephant, giraffe, gnu, buffalo and of course also the carnivore, at first the lion, leopard and cheetah, but also hyena and jackal will be spoiled there. Of course it is always a bit of luck to see all of them, but the chances are quite high.
And I can tell you, we been spoiled ;-)
I guess luck, but also our safari driver was responsible for that.
One point at the end, Zippy our tour manager did a very special extra for us, we looked forward for a quiet and more private place to stay, not the usual big and crowded lodges with this big groups.
I think she found the perfect place, no I do not think I know it was the perfect place.
There is a very nice and absolut new tentet camp there (if I am not wrong about 1 year) , the name is Osero Lodge. Run by a Kenyan family (I like alway on my tours to support local companys) and this is done perfect. We feeled alway most welcome and thanks to Lilly, you made our time just perfect.
Next time, hope at the end of this year, we will come back to Kenya and of course to Australken.
Many thanks to Australken.
