Kenya and Zanzibar - March 2008

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all of you for the suggestions for our trip to Kenya and Zanzibar. Following your recommendations, we first decided on the parameters of our trip - where did we want to go, when did we want to go, how long, did we want our own driver/guide, and what was our budget?

I then emailed four companies that were recommended here. After getting responses, I decided to go with Sandi at Africa Serendipity. She seemd the most in tune with what we wanted to do, and she worked within our budget. From then on, I worked with her to get exactly the trip we wanted; three days each in Amboseli, Sweetwaters, and the Masai Mara, and four days in Zanzibar. She provided me with information on accommodations in each place - one of our priorities was to be able to watch animals from our deck or balcony in each location. We wanted our own driver/guide so we could chose when to go out and what to see.

I then booked our Washington/Nairobi air on Virgin Atlantic.
