I would review our experience as awesome, a great learning expereince as well as adventourous.We went to Lake Bogoria National park.,Lake Nakuru national park and the Maasai mara( a 5-day tour).
We also had a great tour guide, very compassionate with the kids too.
the places we lodged in Maasai Mara(osolmete campsite) as excellent, we didn't like the lodges in Town as the nights were very noisy and we hardly slept .
I would recommend that the tour company try to look for good comfortable campsites as the one in we were lodged in Maasai Mara.
The trip was great!Got to see many animals,had a game picnic, the food at the campsite was also very good.
we would definately do this again!!!

Tarangire Swala Camp is one of the most luxurious and exclusive camp in the Tarangire national park in Tanzania, I want to give a special thank to Xplorato Ventures team for the wonderful experience in Tazania, this is one of the most memorable trips I have ever taken. All the arrangements were perfect right from the groups Meet & Assist until the final departures. Everything went well just as planned. I would really appreciate Alex Gibson handling for the group was excellent, professional & he is a real gem for the company. He made the group comfortable & was always around catering the requirements for the group.
The group & I had a wonderful time in your beautiful country & good Tanzania massage.

The highlight of this trip obvious was Sanctuary Swala, the landscape, the elephants and the bird life in this part of Tarangire was very exciting. We also enjoyed the sun downers a great deal, which offered a reprieve to our busy corporate life. Althugh the food was great, we were more thrilled by the ambience, breakfast on stilts around an enormous and ancient baobab tree. The infinity pool, overlooking the watering hole as elephants quench their thirst and the calfs play around the mother.

I would say, if you have not visited Tarangire in Tanzania, put it in your bucket list. Once more, let me thank Xplorato Ventures the timely response to all my questions & concerns while booking the group; much appreciated. The trip was a success

I was overwhelmed with emotion the first time I had a clear view of Mount Kilimanjaro. I went to hike Kilimanjaro with my friends while on vacation and it was absolutely amazing. A few friends and I booked the Machame Route through Xplorato Ventures, a local tour operator, and we were largely surprised by how smooth it went. From the glacier on top, to the rain forest at the base, the climb takes you through rain forest to Mars like terrain to glacier blue and back to lush greenery.

When we finally summit the highest point in Africa(Uhuru peak), the kind of elation in everyone's eyes, was truly unforgettable. It wasn't just about completing a feat any more, it was overcoming challenges and celebrating team spirit.

My advice for anyone about to make this trek is to spend extra on a nice set of hiking boots, be a group of friends, get a headlamp and the general mountain climbing equipment.

I thoroughly enjoyed, the 7 days of golf and Safari courtesy of Xplorato Ventures. I have to commend there organization skills, from the time I wired the deposit to the end of the safari. During my 7 days safari we experienced some of the finest properties in Kenya: Windsor Golf Hotel & Country Club, Great Rift Valley Lodge,Sarova Lionhill Game Lodge & Sarova Mara Game Camp. My safari entailed, 2 days of golf: One being an 18 - hole championship golf course and the other on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, then we had a game drive in Lake Nakuru National park, here we had a chance to see a vast majority of bird species, we finished off with the famous Masai Mara for the ultimate adventure. Next time you are traveling give them a shout. Cheers

I have to give kudos to Xplorato Ventures Driver guides, during our recent safari the took us to Samburu in Kenya, we were amazed the amount of wildlife we were able to see; more so in our morning game drives. Reticulated giraffes, the famous gerenuk antelopes(whose necks are longer than those of average antelopes), our driver guide give us as much info as possible. For instance, I learnt that gerenuk antelopes have muscular hind legs because they feed standing upright, stretching their necks in order to get to those leaves. As we moved on, the African Lion was quite elusive, it camouflaged in knee-high yellow brown savannah grass of the Samburu National Reserve. Any time you visit Samburu National Park with Xplorato Ventures you are guaranteed to see elephants as they quench their thirst at the Ewaso Nyiro river. If you are travelling with Xplorato Ventures, make sure you schedule morning game drives, as they provide the most excellent view of wildlife.
