Just Back from Kenya/Tanzania - Big Thanks to this Forum!

Jump to last reply

I just returned from my Kenya and Tanzania trip (my first) on the week end and wanted to thank the folks on this board for all of their helpful information. I had the trip of a lifetime (I’m still day dreaming it about it and have had 2 pretty unproductive days at work thus far!) and this board was invaluable in my planning, not only for information about locations, the myriad of choices of camps and other lodgings and various operators, but also for all of the seemingly mundane but very important information (what to pack (and what not to) and camera tips, for example). Seeing the animals and the stunning landscapes was incredible, but the people I met in both countries also made the trip memorable. It was certainly eye opening.

I booked the tour through Kiliwarriors and was extremely pleased with them – I would certainly use them again. Eben, Miriam, George and Wilbert were terrific and even managed to pull a rabbit out of a hat when I landed in Tanzania for what was supposed to be three nights and decided I wanted to add another three! [The last minute thing is a bit of a theme for me as I didn’t start to plan this trip until September] For anyone who is interested, I stayed 5 nights at Serian, in the Masai Mara and then was in Tanzania for 6 nights, 3 nights at Oliver’s in Tarangire NP and the last 3 nights at Olakira in the central Serengeti. I would go back to any of these camps 3 in a heartbeat – the tents were very comfortable and I like the relatively small size, the staffs were very warm and welcoming and the food was excellent.

I really don't have a negative thing to say about the trip, other than it had to end. I'm already planning my return to Africa (in my head at least). So thanks once again to everyone who takes the time to post here.

Cheers

Whiskey.
