Still fresh in my mind, Initially i was nervous about dealing with a company over the internet. I would like to mention how much i appreciated the prompt replies to my questions that i was provided.Both Kenya and Tanzania People are absolutely lovely.

We witnessed 3 lions hunts.We watched elephants locking horns and trunks in test of stength, we spotted a leopard eating some dinner up in a treeThe crocodiles and Hippos in Mara River were awesome,i'm not sure which I was more concerned about on the adventure,the hippos or the toothy monstre crocodiles.

The bush dinner in the Masai Mara is what was best for us, masai dances,the accommodation was terrific,and the wine selection was more than ample. More so the ballon safari which was an experience of a life time
