Just got back from a 2 week holiday in Kenya, we are 6 girls aged 21-24 and booked a 3 day 2 night safari with ITA. Price was really reasonable for the places we stayed, Salt Lick lodge in Tsavo West (amazing!!!! the rooms are on buildings elevated on pillars and you can see the elephants drinking at the waterhole from your room) and Kibo tented camp which was also very nice. All this was arranged by ITA who were really helpful.
But the thing about ITA that made our visit the most memorable was our driver Mohammed. He drove us from Mombasa to Tsavo West and then to Amboselli keeping us safe and stopping for regular breaks and not minding at all when we kept asking to stop for the toilet!!! He was always really cheerful even at 7am and knew the parks and animals well, recognising a crazy elephant in Tsavo West and driving us out of the way before he charged at the safari vehicles behind us!!! We were so grateful to Mohammed for giving us such a memorable experience.
The only issue we had was that the 6 of us had booked a safari together, but another girl of the same age travelling alone had also booked the same safari as us and so ITA had included her on our safari. As we were all girls of the same age we didn't mind this at all, however, when we got to our first safari lodge the 6 of us were expecting to stay in 2 triple rooms and the girl travelling alone had booked her own single room. However, we had actually been booked to stay in 2 doubles and 1 triple which meant the girl who had booked a single room had actually been booked on to our party. However, when we explained the issue to Mohammed he was so helpful and resolved the issue so that we had the rooms we had requested.
We also arranged airport transfers from Moi airport to Diani Beach with ITA with Mohammed as our driver again. He was there on time to pick us up. Also without Mohammed on our return journey we would have missed our flight because the ferry queue was so long, but he drove us to the front of the queue and argued with the security guards to let us skip the queue and so manage to get our connecting flight back to the UK.
Thanks Mohammed and ITA tours :)
