Aparna D. and Prashanth R.
Thanks for the welcome. Happy to be home, but definitely missing Africa. What a magical place. It definitely wow-ed us and made it an excellent choice for the honeymoon. I shared my feedback in the form. Hope it will be helpful.
How would you rate your trip overall? Very Good
What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Combination of the properties we wanted and pricing
How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Five or More
How would you rate AFRICAN PORTFOLIO’S representatives in Africa? Kenya – Very Good
What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home? We were given plenty and thorough information by Susan prior to our departure. It was quite detailed, nothing more required.
What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive from our representatives in Africa while on safari? Can’t be sure.
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals? All accommodation, meals and facilities were great. We picked the properties we liked based on research. Some lived up to their name, some could have been better.
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip? There were several. Sometimes it was the meal that was memorable, sometimes the location. But everyone went out of their way to provide good food, ambiance and special places to host so we have a good experience.
How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff? The guides at Klein’s were very good. We specifically requested them and were right on the money. The guides at Bateleur were average in comparison. I believe a few were on vacation. The lack of a tracker along with the guide was definitely noted and made the night drives pretty uninteresting on the private reserve.
Was there anything you would have like more of, less of, or done differently? The butlers at Kilindi vary very much in their initiative and experience. How they are allotted to rooms is obviously the managements desire according to business. But we definitely noticed massive difference in the services being offered by the butlers to different guests, including us.
What was your most memorable moment in Africa? So many! It was a fantastic honeymoon! We fell in love with Africa. Already planning our next trip!
