What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home? All of the information received was complete.  We were very well prepared for the trip.
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals? Please provide the name of the hotel, lodge or camp you are describing. All of the accommodations at Tortillas, Samburu, and Mara were excellent.  The meals were very good.  We enjoyed the bush meals and the sundowners.  All in all, we felt everything was excellent.
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip? It would be hard to pick just one meal as our favorite.  They were all very good.
It is such a treat to have coffee brought to your room in the morning and to have an omelet cooked in the bush for breakfast!
How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff? Please provide the name of the person you are describing. All of our guides were outstanding.  Ali at the Tortillas camp was very knowledgeable as well as Lipan at Samburu and LeMaria at Mara.  Each could identify animals with details and could spot them when we could hardly see them with binoculars.
Was there anything you would have liked more of, less of, or done differently? While the schedule was full and we did get tired, to make changes would have meant that we wouldn’t have seen all the animals and had the experiences we had.
What was your most memorable moment in Africa? The most memorable moments were being so close to the animals and not have them even be afraid that we were right there.  We saw animals eating their prey and watched mothers take care of their babies.  To be so close to them was something we didn’t think was possible.
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be? Go with an open mind and enjoy every single moment of the experience.  Take clothes that can layer as the weather ranges from hot to cool.   Be sure to take as many pictures as you can.  Take a diary to write each day’s experience.
