Holiday review by Joanne Driver

Name: Joanne Driver
Date of trip: 16/09/2013
Number of people: 2
Country: Kenya

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "A good combination of venues gave us an insight into different areas / settings etc. The main request when booking had been to be in the best location for a chance to see some of the great migration - although we were priviliged to see some activity - the general feeling from the people there was that we should have been there mabe a couple of weeks earlier when it was even busier with this activity"
 
Tribes Service: "the service before hand was all good - just not quite so clear on arrival at the various places on paperwork and who was meeting us where etc"
 
Guides: "all of them were great - very knowledgeable and happy to oblige when we made requests. The two guides we had in Amboseli were exceptional their knowledge and interaction second to none"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "The first cam was in the selenkey conservancy where they were working with the local Masaio so hopefully this made a difference"

Accommodation

 
Amboseli Porini
Although unfortunately we did not get out luggage for the first 2.5 days - this camp was brilliant. The hospitality was exceptional and the guides and Tony the owner all fantastic. Could not fault it in any way. A beautiful setting with great wildlife, top level service and accomodation
 
Siana Springs Intrepids
Unfortunately it was very wet when we arrived. The guide was not at the airstrip to pick us up as we were a little early so we arrived at the camp very wet and miserable. It was very quiet with probably only 2-4 more people in camp at the same time. No atmosphere and the food was not great as the buffet was not served due to lack of numbers. Staff were plasant and helpful. David the guide and his trainee Bernard were fabulous and most accomodating
 
Keekorok Lodge
A very different experience to the previous two venues. To be honest, had i known it was so much more \'commercial\' i wouldnt have made this choice. Accomodation and service was all very good. A good selection in the dining room for all meals. GAme drives seemed to s#be set early morning and then late afternoon leaving you with little to do during the day. We made a request for a longer drive on the second day which was granted - so this was great. The majority of the staff were very professional and helpful. A few of the dining room staff were rather iserable and seemed as if things were too much trouble. The reception and bar staff were brilliant and very friendly
