Travelled on the Masai with Southern Palms Just wanted to say how much the four of us enjoyed our safari and beach holiday. It proved far better than our expectations in many ways. We saw many animals at close quarters, including lions and cheetahs. Only the leopard evaded us! We even saw the start of the wildebeest migration, much earlier than usual! The camps were great especially the substituted Ashnil, which was tented and magical. The hotair balloon was wonderful - expensive but worth every penny as from it we viewed thousands upon thousands of wildebeests making their way in single file from group to massive group. What a spectacle! Not so obvious from the ground. The Southern Palms Beach Resort, a very good hotel to choose, was very welcome after a week of early starts and bumpy rides. The staff were wonderful and we were able to completely relax, in spite of a little heavy rain. Certainly we were right to go All Inclusive there. It was the trip of a lifetime for the four of us and one we shall look back on with great pleasure for many years. Thank you so much for your very useful advice and for organising the trip for us Sorry I haven't written this before but we are moving house in 6 days time so we've been rather busy since our return on the 6th! Have a good summer yourself

Travelled on the Thorn Tree Safari itinerary with a stay at the Gazi Bay Tented Retreat. We returned from Kenya yesterday and wanted to let you know that we had what was undoubtedly one of the most rewarding holidays we have ever had. The safaris far exceeded our expectations and we were fortunate to see some quite rare sights. Our driver, Noah, was amazing, if somewhat rash at times, but extremely keen-eyed and knowledgeable. There was a lot of evidence of the drought conditions and Noah told us that the rains were very insufficient so far. Our second week at the Gazi Tent Retreat was very relaxing and everything was done for our comfort. We would recommend it to everyone who likes something a little diffterent and well off the beaten track. Thanks to all concerned in making all the arrangements for our trip. We very much appreciated the individual attention which we received at every stage of the holiday.
