Client testimonials

We take great pride in the many happy clients we have served over the years. Read what our clients are saying about their experiences.
My family thought I should not go on a flying trip in Africa. Seventy years is too old, they said. I have a walk stick but the plane and the Land Rover were very nice. No problem. And the Mara Explorer camp was lovely. The staff and the service was excellent. We saw many lions. My favourite was the warthog running with the tails up. The flight back to our coast hotel was a bit bumpy but everyone was asleep. I was the one awake.

I'm keen on photography and the first game drive by morning was amazing for the light. My driver knew when to stop and knew about the sun shadow and he gave me time. I stayed at Fig Tree. It’s mentioned as a standard camp but we had the hippo in the river and a nice fire place. I enjoyed my air safari. In the guest book I am writing I WILL BE BACK.

This was my third visit to Kenya and the Mara. I also landed at Amboseli with Mombasa Air and the pilots were really helpful with baggage and explaining the trip details. The lake at Amboseli was full of birds and the elephant herds seem to have gotten bigger. Its always dusty there but there was a rain shower and a rainbow in the dust. That was magic.
