We chose this safari based on the African Safari Planner and its comments re Gamewatcher's Safari. Coomunication was excellent ahead of time. Easy to book on line. Everything ran as planned. The camp is in a conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara and therefore there are fewer vehicles than in the Masai Mara itself. This allowed us to view the animals without the feeling of harrassing them. The Masai Mara is so crowded that I worried constantly about the effects of such heavy traffic on the animals. The camp staff were very helpful and knowledgeable and nothing was too much effort for them. The tent camp is fun and the food excellent. We saw all the animals we wanted to and more. I would highly recommend it.
