We were 6 in our group, started with a detailed research almost a year ago before booking a Safari tour organiser. We preferred Flash McTours as Peter Njenga, the owner, had a very flexible approach towards our requests. He was very responsive and informative which made us comfortable to start with.
We had an excellent Safari tour guide, Edward Mathu, who was very friendly, informative, positive and enthusiastic. We appreciated his command of English language and his skilled driving in quite challenging areas after heavy rain. He tried his best to ensure that we see as much as possible, we were able to see the big five, 4 leopards in different days, several lions.
We visited Aberdare, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and finally Maasai Mara which were all very interesting and different in my view. We stayed at Ark Lodge, Flamingo Hill Camp and Entim Mara. The food at Entim Mara was outstanding, even the packed breakfasts and lunches were very tasty and exceeded expectations. Staying in an unfenced camp (Entim Mara) was exciting.
On the way back to Nairobi, we visited Maasai Mara village which looked interesting as they kept their traditions of rather native living, still we thought the entrance fee per person (USD 20) was overpriced. It was overwhelming as the natives were very insistent when it came to shopping.
All in all, our trip was an extreme success with big credits to Flash McTours and Travel, again thanks to Peter Njenga for making our trip a success.
