I am writing this in response to the last review as I want to say that I strongly disagree with the comments about JT Safaris,
me and my husband stayed at the baobab hotel just got back home on the 12 june 2009. I work in the travel industry in the UK and we booked all of our trips with Julius of JT Safaris and had absolutely no problems whatsoever.
We booked our safari to the masai mara with him which was 5 star all the way and no one could beat the price we got and theres no question of being short changed as he only takes a deposit before you go and the balance when you get back and only if you are completely happy with everything.
We also booked a trip to mombasa with Julius which was also brilliant we had our own car to take us and our own private guide at half the price of bigger companies, and we booked a trip to Wasini Island to snorkel and go dolphin spotting and the same again no problems with anything a fantastic day out which again as with the safari a deposit paid for these and then the balance when Julius knows you are happy with everything, he always rings to make sure you are happy with everything.
I dont believe there is any way Julius would ever rip anybody off as he is so honest, my husband wanted to go fishing to catch big fish and Julius advised it was the wrong time of year and he would only catch small ones and we know this to be true as talking to a lot of people at the hotel who had been with other companies, they said they hardly caught anything and what they did was small-if Julius was out to rip people off he could just take the booking and your money and not bother but it is always his first priority to make sure his clients have the best possible time and get the most out of whatever they have booked with him-he also offered to get one of his drivers to take us to shops etc. for free if we ever wanted to go and he also took us to a local school for free which was great to help the local kids with pens,books etc that we had taken.
All in all I would have no hesitation in recommending and booking again with Julius and Jamelia is also great help as well, thanks for everything we had a fantastic time.
I am writing a separate review for the hotel
