Thank you for arranging our Safari holiday in Kenya and Tanzania for us.
It was to celebrate our 40th. Wedding anniversary which was on July 1st. 2018, and through your arrangements, we have had a holiday that we will never forget, as we had the most amazing time.
Using your itinerary booklet, which came in a smart leather case, we travelled to Kenya for our first safari in tent style accommodation. We travelled in light aircraft to get us to our camp sites and back, and with the help of travel guides, who greeted us and helped us at the domestic airports, everything went smoothly.
Our tent at the Kichi Tembo camp in Kenya, was close to the reception/ restaurant area which was a big help as I (Stephen) have a prosthetic leg to walk with. The accommodation was excellent, with an easy walk in shower, and lovely double bed looking out onto the safari area.
Our own Butler brought us tea in the morning as a wake up call before we went on early morning safari drives and had breakfast in the bush.
Our first Safari guide was Benson, he was so lovely and very informative about the animals and wildlife.
After seeing an abundance of animals, we were taken to hotels in Stonetown and Pongwe, in Zanzibar, an island off Tanzania. We had a great experience in Zanzibar, with a pleasant guide taking us on a tour through the centre of town.
We then flew to Tanzania with the help of a driver to get us to the correct airport and organize where and what to do.
We arrived at our next camp Lake Manzi, on time and had an amazing greeting, as we were welcomed with people singing to us on our way in.
On the first night in our tent, we had elephants wandering past the front of our tent and that carried on for the rest of our four night stay there.
On our safari adventures we saw several lions, elephants, giraffes, buffalo, rhino, hippos, crocodiles, impalas, monkeys plus other animals and lots of colourful wildlife too.
Truly an amazing holiday with dinner on the beach and three surprise 40th , Anniversary cakes. One from the hotel in Nairobi and one from each campsite. One being on our last safari, next to a lake with the sun setting in front of us.
Thank you Jamie for organizing our holiday so well, it was a truly wonderful experience.
