Holiday review by Mrs. Penelope Ironmonger

Date of trip: 19/08/2014
Number of people: 3
Country: Kenya

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Excellent"
Tribes Service: "Yes Tracy very helpful and knowledgeable. We were really pleased to have done the beach holiday before the safari as we arrived fairly tired from the flight and it was great to chill out first."
Guides: "Our Rep at Leopard Beach hotel was excellent and advised us well on what trips to go on. Our Masai guide Lorna at Karen Blixen a camp was fantastic with her local knowledge of the animals and made us feel very secure despite being parked in an open sided vehicle just feet away from Lions and Leopards - she really made the holiday for us. It was really interesting to talk to her about how the Masai people live."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"

Karen Blixen Camp
Superb guide. Delicious food. Excellent setting by the river and ,loved hearing the hippos talking to each other. Comfortable tented accommodation. Cosy log fire for chilly evening.

Our Memories

"Couldn't believe how close we could get to the wild animals without them being disturbed by us. Was really pleased that the guide took just the 3 of us in one vehicle and mostly there was just us at any one spot eg. Watching lions eating a freshly killed gazelle or sitting amidst a herd of elephants as they grazed or watching baby giraffes trying out their ridiculously long legs. Just magical."
