We, a family of four with two kids (10, 15) have spent a 7 days / 6 nights safari tour in Kenya in the last week of June 2023 ... and we are glad that we had arranged it with African Mosaic Tours. Max is your contact person for organization, keep bothering him on special interests, highlights, etc. ... he can male it happen. And request Omari as your guide and driver, he is professional and knowledgable as well as friendly and handsome, a great person. He even invited us to his private house for lunch (after the safari), very nice family and good food :-)
Omary promised (not to mix with "granted") Big 5 and he delivered !!! We saw not only thousands of elephants and buffalos, but also black rhinos, leopards and dozens of lions. Not to mention all the other beautiful wildlife and birds. It was a great tour, perfectly organized and professionally accomplished, thanks to the Team.
We started at Mombasa International Airport and ended at our vacation house in Diani Beach. Take a Jeep, not a Mini-Van, don't safe the money on that. You want to go on safari, not on city sightseeing or a picknick tour !!! Again, take a JEEP. Better views, great feeling, more space and never any problem even during those sometimes tricky road conditions ... and not to mention the jealous sights of tourists sitting in the small and low mini vans ...
Now a brief summary of our tour. We visited Tsavo West, Amboseli and Tsavo East. Our main route stops were ...
Rhino Sanctuary (a must in Tsavo West, there are not many black rhinos left elsewhere),
Ngulia Safari Lodge (1st night, rather simple, but great terrace including leopard visit),
Mzima Springs (nice green environment, ask fpr Steven) and Shatani Lava (okay to drive by),
Amboseli National Park (awesome park to see Kilimandjaro), stay here in the park at
Ol Tukai Safari Lodge (2nd + 3rd night, better stay two nights to relax and to see the big dude which is often covered by clouds), then
Ziwani Tented Camp (4ht night, great with crocos, hippos, safari walk, night safari), continued to
Taita Hills and Salt Lick Safari Logde (5th night, a must, the city above the skies), and finally went into Tsavo East to
Sentrim Tsavo Tented Camp (6th night, here we saw a herd of 14 (!) lions).
There are for sure hundreds of other nice places to visit and it first of all depends on starting point (Nairobi or Mombasa), available time and disposable budget. I can only stress one thing: You go to Kenya primarily to see wildlife, hence focus on this, you will never regret or forget the experience you will make.
Thanks again to Max and Omari and greetings also from Mama, Egon and Tamina :-)
