"Convenient but not convinced"
Landscapes were surreal, package was comprehensive
from Singapore, August 2018
Planning for our E.African Safari, we read many reviews, decided that David and Absolute Holidays Safari seemed like a good partner to go with and went on to booked with them some 7 months ahead in Dec '17.
Kenya - Arrived and was met at airport and things went smoothly w/o a hitch. The next morning, we're picked up by our guide Mansoor and sure was glad that we had him as he is very experienced, accommodative and patient. Our game drives from Masai Mara to Lake Nakuru to Amboseli, he knew where the animals were and we saw almost all like lions, elephants, hippos, hyenas, coalition of 5 cheetah brothers, lots of zebras, gnus, buffaloes, gezels, impalas and wild dogs (said to be rare). Name them and we probably saw them except the elusive leopard. Plenty of long, at times tiring drives between parks but the sightings are worth the while. Highlight on this part was 'the hunt' by 2 lioness @Amboseli - They actually 'planned' their kill as they moved in separate ways with one circumventing and waiting in ambush on one side while the other waited at a distance about a kilometer away until the situation is favorable before sprinting into action, scaring the herd of gnus to run in the direction of the former. If only we're closer to have better visibility of the final moment but saw it nonetheless. Wonder experience on this part of our safari.

"An Amazing Trip up Mt Kenya"
The trek up My Kenya is an absolutely amazing experience. The scenery was so impressive. Our guide Samwell and his team did a really good job ensuring we were safe and well looked after. We were provided with a good tent and Jimmy the cook always produced great food for every meal. The two porters Douglas and Samwell 2 were always cheery and really helped make the trip special. We found the altitude hard going but were so happy to make it to Point Lenana even though it was snowing! We finished off our trip with a day's safari to Lake Nakuru which was a great way to end the trip seeing a wide selection of wildlife and bird's. Our guide for that day, Jimmy, looked after us well too and even arranged a boat trip on Lake Naivasha to finish off our trip.
Overall this was a really special holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Top tip: if you're going to Mt Kenya in June take a very warm sleeping bag!

In first place, we really appreciate how easy it was to communicate with the agency before the safari.
Everything was as expected.
About the accommodation, everything was really fine, and the people very nice.
About the food, it's all the time kind of the same stuff, but was fine.
We saw all the animals that we was expected to!

"Insgesamt tolle Reise mit langer Reisezeit im Van"
Sehr guter Fahrer und Guide in Kenia, gute Unterkünfte bis auf eine Ausnahme und herausragende Safaris. Tansania war leider ein wenig chaotisch organisiert und die Fahrer und Guides eher Mittelmaß, dafür war das Essen Top.
Top war auch der direkte Kontakt zu Absolute Holiday Safaris, David war immer sofort erreichbar über Whatsapp.

"La fauna excelente, pero el servicio tiene mucho que mejorar"
La mejor del viaje fue La reserva de Masai Mara, es espectacular. Solo hubiese deseado que la dejaran para lo ultimo del viaje ya que luego todo pareció un poco menos interesante.
El tour no hubiese sido lo mismo sin nuestro guía Jefrey, vimos muchas cosas, muy simpatico, amable y siempre sonriente.
La cantidad de fauna vista es espectacular.
