Number of people: 2
Country: Kenya

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Unforgettable experience that met our expectations (which were pretty high!) Lots of game to see, interesting cultural additions, and overall well organized at every point! Tracy was a great help throughout-- extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, competent, and caring! We will definitely use her again! "
Tribes Service: "Everything worked like clockwork. We were met at every point by competent, pleasant in-country guides and drivers. Your Kenya partners took very good care of us!"
Guides: "Outstanding throughout: knowledgeable, pleasant, informative, etc."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Happy to see the connections established between the camps and the local community--the sense of "giving back.""


Amboseli Porini
Basic camp, but service was very good and accommodations were certainly adequate. Food was not terrific, but that too was acceptable. Good staff, excellent guides and game viewing.
House of Waine
Lovely, small hotel with excellent service. Grounds were beautiful, as was the hotel itself.
Kicheche Valley Camp
Wonderful tents -- clean and luxurious. Terrific setting and views. Management left something to be desired (see comments in email). Game viewing in the Masai Mara was wonderful!
Rooms were not particularly to our liking, but setting was wonderful, as was the food. Very little game to be seen and activities somewhat limited.
