The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an awesome and exciting experience to be long savoured. The afternoon is spent on a community visit around the local communities living near the park to explore their lifestyle and culture.

    "We went on a safari in September. The Fairview Hotel was our first stop and it was the perfect place to rest and get to meet the rest of our wonderful group as well as Victoria, Agoi and Byson. Perfection! Next we were on our way to Amboseli. We stayed at the Olutuki Lodge. Staff was wonderful, food was great and our cottage was very very nice. Do you dream of hearing elephants trumpeting and monkeys playing as you sit on your porch? Ahhh! Around the corner you go to a sunrise over Mount Kilimanjaro. Agoi expertly plans the days with perfect timing. Now to head out to view elephants, zebras, and lions!"

    "Our trip included a stay at Sweetwater tent camp. Well it was the most beautiful tent I have ever been in. Agoi again led on an early morning adventure where we witnessed a pair of lions hunting warthogs only to find a pack of the elusive wild dogs afterward. There are no words to express these unique sights. Agoi and Byson always had us at the right place at the right time, in a position to capture these sights with our camera!"

    "Our stay at Masai Mara was one of my favorite lodges. It was rustic but you could sit on your porch and just look over the Great Rift Valley. The food was expertly prepared and the staff was very accommodating. They put hot water bottles in our beds to take the chill off at night. Our trip to Lake Nakuru found us in the company of a huge flock of flamingos, rhinos, colobus monkeys, giraffes and baboons! How does Agoi always get us to the perfect locations! His knowledge and guidance was incredible!"

    "Lastly we stayed at Serena Mara at the Masa Mara. You initial reaction is of pure owner as you enter the front door. You are looking across a huge room through a glass wall overlooking the Mara! The rooms were snug and comfy! This is where we witnessed two, not one, but two wildebeest crossings! Picnics with a herd of giraffes, cheetahs, Servals, lions, hippos, leopards, topis and herds of zebras. This was all because we were in Agoi's expert hands."

    "Every day we awoke with a sense of adventure and excitement that our guides created. It created a feeling of wonder that was everything I had ever dreamed of and more! We would definitely only travel with Affable Tours on our return trips to Africa!"
