This was our first safari and so did not know what to expect. We were extremely impressed with it all. From the greeting on arrival of the plane by the driver and the greeting at the camp. We did not know what to expect of the " tent " but could not fault it. This certainly is not a relaxing holiday as you have two game drives a day and have to fit in the meals and extra activities during the day and evenings. The food was great, but too much at times- my own fault as it buffet style service.
We had a guide called Sebastian who like others managed to show us every animal possible in 2 days except the Leopard-which we then saw within 10 minutes of arriving in Masi Mara. We could not believe how close he would get us to some of the animals and was so informative of the animals and birds. We really were spoilt. Possibly due to the time of year or recession or maybe always like this, but did not see as many other other Jeeps out on safarias we thought we would.
We celebrated a wedding anniversary whilst here and the staff made it very special by singing and dancing to us whilst presenting a cake they had made.
We then went of to The Great Rift Valley and The Masi Mara but definatly preferred Samburu.
All the staff at these camps were polite and helpful and were always willing to talk about the lives which was very interesting
