Ottima scelta, affidatevi tranquillamente a tutto il personale del Barracuda, tutti indistintamente.

Avviso importantissimo: NON fate le escursioni con PEPERONE, uno dei beach boys che vi avvicinerà sulla spiaggia. Checche' se ne dica....a noi ha rubato parecchi soldi, non ha fatto le escursioni, si è fatto dare acconti per escursioni mai fatte (e questo lo ha fatto con tantissima gente), e ci ha minacciato di morte. I consigli che vi hanno dato gli altri sono ottimi.

Per i souvenir andate da Zebra (è il più onesto). Nelle baracche sulla spiaggia del Barracuda vi vendono a 5€ una calamita da frigo, da Zebra a 1€!!!

tutto in euro, senza problemi. mi dispiace che ti consigliano di non affidarti si Beach boys e all hotel. perderesti l opportunità di vivere il vero Kenya,pagheresti dì più e la qualità sarebbe peggiore (dormire fuori dal parco, perdere mezza giornata in piscina il secondo giorno di safari, etc). contatta Fragola su fb, troppo simpatico e una garanzia di successo in ogni escursione. buona vacanza!

Buongiorno, io ho acquistato il pacchetto Tsavo Est di 2gg + Blu Safari + Rovine di Fede direttamente in villaggio dagli operatori Condor per €265,00. A loro volta si appoggiano alla Dream Safaris Ltd. Io mi sono trovato molto bene!

Non so se c'è un'area fi fitness al Barracuda, ma non credo. Io non ne ho viste e, sinceramente, non sono andato a cercarla.

Nemmeno noi l'abbiamo fatta.

Ogni giorno passa l'inserviente a spruzzare la camera con l'insetticida...!

Se vuoi star tranquilla portati dietro qualcosa, noi avevamo l'autan tropical (o simili ma TROPICAL) e il Bio Kill (insetticida senza gas).
