Country: Kenya

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Accomodated all our different needs and interests - ages 2-68 and enabled us to see something of real Kenya through visiting friends as well as using more low-key accomodation instead of the inclusive package style."
 
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
 
Guides: "Good"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Average"

Accommodation

 
Siana Springs Intrepids
Tents were comfortable, clean and well-equipped and area felt very safe. Our 5 family tents were in an open area with plenty of room to play without disturbing other people. Buffet restaurant and service good with plenty of variety and enormous packed breakfast or lunch on request. I had chosen this because of advertised 'children's clubs'. These were ad hoc and pretty low key - a smallish 'assault course', a dusty museum of animal artefacts and a part-built masai hut.We waited an hour for the 'animator' to turn up - a pleasant and helpful young Maasai man - but the older ones (10-14) rejected as 'boring' (although next day they did get enthusiastic about making bows and arrows) and a bit above our younger ones, though enjoyed spontaneous play on assault course. Other extra activities (night drive, nature walk, photographic safari) were expensive and didn't do. Had feared that 3 nights was not enough but infact just right as unless very enthusiastic, 2 1/2 days of game drive (with fantastic viewings except leopard) was enough of long bumpy drives. Siana Springs was 1/2 hour drive from park gate on bumpy roads and very little seen outside park gates (except Maasai herds and villages)
