The trip.me way of travel
My first safari, my first time in Africa and I'm in love.
John& I would like to thank you for organizing the excellent trip we had. We were very pleased with your organization of the safari and our driver, Justis was both very knowledgeable and very patient with our endless stops.
There is only one thing that we did not think about and would have liked some information on prior to our beginning the trip. This concerns tipping. We have not travelled extensively and certainly not on this particular type of trip (fully catered for with a driver attached). We feel that for further clients it may be a good idea to provide them with some information as to how much a tip would be for carrying bags, room cleaning, waiting and of course for our driver. We were unsure about what was 'expected' in this regards. Perhaps you could enlighten us. It is a small thing but it did cause us concern during our trip, particularly as we had such contrary information from various sources.
Other than this concern of ours our trip was splendid and I would certainly recommend you to others in the future.
Our favorite part of the trip was the convenience of the entire trip. The driver guide and the work he did was absolutely fantastic and made our safari one of the most memorable. Your company is fortunate to have him.
I can't thank you and your group enough for our unforgettable journey. It was truly the trip of a lifetime for Roger and I. Every detail was handled perfectly by your organization and I was especially happy to see the smiling face of James when we arrived at the Nairobi airport after a long, long journey.
Waiting in our van at the airport was our driver/guide "Joe", whom we felt must be your "best" guide in the organization. No one could have made our trip more memorable! Always courteous, punctual, articulate and extremely knowledgeable of the animals and plants. We don't think we missed anything, Joe saw to that! From our first sighting of Leopard on our way to the Samburu Serena Lodge to our last Lion sighting as we were leaving the Massai Mara, truly breathtaking.
We loved the lodges, my favorite was the Samburu Serena Lodge, although Keekorok was fabulous too! I think we learned the Kenyan definition of "road" and ours may be a bit different! But it was all worth the bumps and bruises!
We will recommend you to everyone.

Thanks Elikana, we made it back home safely, but are already dreaming of going back. We are definitely going to recommend you to our friends.
