“Maasai mara and Tanzania trip with super cats tours and travel.”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Jumbo Steve,

Jane and I would like to thank you for arranging a great tour of parks and reserves in Kenya and Tanzania. Everything went smoothly and there were no difficulties. We have many vivid and valuable memories of the wildlife and countryside in both countries

The driver/guides were great in particular peter whom we would recommend to any prospective clients. His professional yet casual manner meant we felt comfortable traveling with him and he was a well spoken informative and amusing conversationalist on our sometimes long drives. We learnt a lot about the wildlife and Kenya. He was always keen to make sure we had good positions for our game drive viewing especially in the Masai Mara where we saw four crossings. Charles, our guide in Tanzania was also informative and keen to make sure we rounded off our sightings of the big five with a sighting of leopards on our Tanzanian journey. From our experience, we recommend super cats tours and travel to those who would like to go Kenya.
Regards,

“A Natural Wonder of the World”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

You have to visit during the migration season to really appreciate the majesty of this river and what transpires here. A true natural gem. The spectacle of life is amazing as you see the battle of wildebeest and crocodiles and zebras.

“Best way to get closer to nature!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

I believe it makes a big difference to plan a masai mara safari around the wildebeest migration season. Although the game drives at the savannah are exhilarating enough, seeing the "greatest wildlife show on earth" (derived from an article I've seen!) will really make your experience unforgettable. Yes, it may be more expensive during the season and yes, you need patience waiting for the crossing (we were lucky we waited for only 30 minutes!) but it will certainly make you feel closer to nature. Highly recommended.
