15-Oct-2010 - We have been to East Africa twice recently and therefore we had some definite ideas about what we wanted from our 2 week Safari in terms of the wildlife, the hotels and the transport arrangements. We asked several companies for an itinerary that covered both the North (Masai Mara) and the coast (Watamu) and Yvonne was quick to understand the special type of experience that we were seeking.

Go-Africa Safaris were great at organizing the trip with the two hotels (Tipilikwani Mara camp and Hemingways) that we wanted to return to and also in recommending Ashnil and Ol Tukai Lodges which were just perfect. Yvonne advised us that we would be able to drive south from the Mara on the much improved roads and then fly back to Nairobi from Watamu with the local airline Fly540, saving much time and expense.

Our driver, Leonard, was a brilliant guide and spotter who literally went the extra mile to find those rare species, cheetah kills, sunsets and rare habitats that make this part of Africa so memorable. Its definitely worth using a local East African company over any European travel agent for the specialist knowledge and personal attention that makes the whole experience so much richer. We are already thinking of another trip to Kenya with Go-Africa!

With kind regards
