2-Night Amboseli Flying Safari From Nairobi

Amboseli National Park, at the foot of Africa's highest mountain, 5,895m Kilimanjaro, is one of the most popular of Kenya's national parks. It lies some 240 km south-east of Nairobi very close to the Tanzania border. The snowcapped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro rising above a saucer of clouds dominates every aspect of Amboseli. Gazetted as a national park in 1974 it covers only 392 sq km but despite its small size and its fragile ecosystem it supports a wide range of mammals (well over 50 of the larger species) and birds (over 400 species). Years ago this was the locale around which such famous writers as Ernest Hemingway and Robert Ruark spun their stories of big-game hunting in the wilds of Africa.

3 Day 2 Night Bwindi Gorillas Trek

A Gorilla trek within the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a highlight of all visits done in Uganda and certainly mountain gorillas are the major reason as to why very many people visit Uganda. On the other hand, Uganda is recognized as a very safe and more so secure country in which you can see these Gorillas in a serene surroundings.

This holiday with Denhum was organised via Responsible travel UK. We spent a week journeying from Nairobi (2 nights) to Samburu National Park (2 nights) Lake Navaisha (I night) Masai Mara National Park (2 nights) and Lake Nakuru (I night) before returning to Nairobi. It was a private tour, just two of us. We had understand from Denhum that journeys between locations were 4 hours max but this was not as descibed, most were 5 to 7 hours so we spend a long time travelling and sometimes it was rushed at the destinations, especially those where we spend 1night only and safari time had to be cut down. The route was not circular so we doubled back on ourselves after Masai Mara so appeared to waste a lot of time by not taking the most direct route. Roads are very rough often for 20 or 30 miles non stop so be prepared to be shaken about and bumped around big time! Arrangements prior to Safari were excellent and we did follow advertised route, but there was no "cultural " input at all as such- we did not learn anything much about the people/tribes etc as had been advertised. There was one extra trip to meet Masai people but this was 60 dollars each so we passed on that. Our guide was friendly and nice but more of a (very fast) driver than a guide, and did not impart much information about our journey, landmarks etc or anything to do with Kenya - so do a take a good guidebook and read up for yourself. Also there was no advantage in terms of being able to make "choices" as a private tour, we appeared to follow a set routine and were not ever given any options to choose from. We were disappointed not to see anything of the migration as Denhum had led us to believe we would be able to see something at that time of year but it was not to be. Lodges were of good standard, comfortable and pleasant. We saw quite a lot of animals, big five and others including leopard cheetahs, wild dogs and baby rhino. , maybe little disappointed that Masai was not more populated and full of animals as guide book seemed to indicate is should be! This is our third safari but first in Keyna. It is a lovely country and we would have liked more time to find out more and explore - maybe cut down the enormously long route and spend more quality time in fewer places and have more informative guide.. Do make sure you are clear about how long it will take to get from place to place as this was quite a shock for us as we had it in writing that max journey was 4 hours, and that was not the case!

I did a Kenya/uganda tour of 11 days, including Nakuru lake, Masai Mara in Kenya and Murchison Falls and Gorilla tracking in Uganda. The program wasn't perfect because some transfer were too long and not feasible. But the driver in Kenya, Moussa, was bright, he told me it was impossible to see the hot springs that were in the program but we could add Naivasha lake that was on the way and it was really lovely (boat tour with many birds, hippos and elephants); and the office chief in Uganda (who was so kind as to accompany me on a walking tour in Kampala showing me all the sights) cancelled one night in Murchison Falls and booked a hotel on the way to Bwindi to divide the transfer. Even in that way the two transfer lasted 12 hours!... Apart from those organizational faults (that I suggest the company to improve) the travel was really great. The two drivers, Moussa and Ivan, were very good and helpful. I could see a lot of animals and the gorilla tracking was a success. I added the optional fly on the hot-air balloon, expensive but worth every penny, and the visit to the rhino sanctuary that I strongly suggest- It's on the way to Murchison Falls and we walk with an armed ranger to come close and personal to rhinos. The lodges were in general good, some of them exceptional. I would strongly Reccomend this company.

The Safari was lots of fun and the lodges were clean and accommodating. The food was excellent. Our guide Musa could have told us more about the animals, but was more focused in just getting us to sites to see them. We did get to see the big 5.

This company is a total scam, they will lie to you and say whatever they need to in order to get you to book. They promise things they don't deliver, then they threaten you when you complain. I would recommend that no one ever uses this company. We booked a safari with them, they said the drive would be 4-5 hours from Nairobi, its took almost 8 because the driver was not told by the company where the camp was. The van broke down on the way there. We missed the afternoon Safari we were promised on the first day. The van did not have a working radio and we got stuck one day on the safari, very dangerous and unsafe. No one should ever use this company. I was on a trip to Africa and did Safaris in from a number of different companies in a number of different countries and this was without a doubt the worst one. I would not recommend this on my worst enemy.

Response from Denhum H, Guest Relations Manager at Denhum Holidays
Responded Sep 15, 2019
Before I respond, from Zachary reviews on TripAdvisor he has posted 20 terrible reviews and just wondering could all be a victim like one he took us through or just a coincidence?? Zachary called the office to booked 3 nights safari on 24th July 2019 late in the afternoon requesting safari starting on 25th July. After discussion, he was only able to book 2 nights because his budget was $1300 for 2 people. Safari started as planned at 0630am. Vehicle had a problem and was sorted in 45 minutes which he himself sent an email on the same recommending the driver for fixing it. They arrived late for lunch and at 630pm, he called the office where he gave us 3 options because he arrived late: - we refund him 25% of $1300 OR - Give him an extra night at masai mara or - if we don't do any of the above we cancel his safari and drive back to nairobi (at 630pm which he knew was not possible) and as a result charge-back his payment he did on 24th July 2019 through credit card. We offered him an extra game drive and lunch the last day but he insisted he want an extra night. At 8pm he called to say the camp is not what he wanted and room was below his expectation. he choose the camp among other offered after going through their website. He was staying at Losokwan Camp http://www.losokwancamp.com/ In consultation with the camp, we paid extra $120 to upgrade him to family tent which he accepted to avoid further complain. To compensate him further, we offered him free night game drive which we paid for, offered him extra game drive and lunch the last day. Last night on 27th, he sent another email at night indicating he is not happy with what we have offered to compensate for lost time on the first day and insisted he still want either 25% refund or 1 free extra night. That we were not able to meet to his expectation. We offered to meet him last day on return to Nairobi, but on arrival in Nairobi he just asked driver to drop him at westland on the way to the city indicating he will get taxi to airport. This was just an excuse to avoiding meeting someone from the office. Safari ended on 27th July and on 10th August 2019 he charged-back his payment which he had paid through credit card (USD$1300). Reason he gave while charging-back is that he paid for a safari but never went. We provided all the receipts we paid the hotel, itinerary, email communications, text messages, all the threats he had sent indicating if we don't give extra night he will charge back his card to his bank. Upon his bank and our merchant account provider going through everything we provided, they ca
