Wow! Talk about a holiday of a lifetime! Had a 4day safari in Nairobi followed by 4 day beach break in Mombasa. Upon arrival in Nairobi we were met by our guide at the airport and transferred to Aberdare country club for lunch. It was a fairly long journey but was made interesting by our guide/driver. We were then taken to the first of the safari lodges. This is where the holiday really kicked off! Within half an hour there was a family of elephants feeding at the water hole! Staff there were wonderful! Friendly and attentive and the food was great! Rooms were fairly basic but spotlessly clean and well looked after. After a game drive the following day to lake Nakuru (here we say flamingos, giraffe, buffalo, zebra, baboons, rhino) we were driven to our 2nd lodge, The Ark, for an overnight stay. Again, staff, food and accommodation were brilliant! Night day was another game drive, seeing 100 of animals then on to Keekorok lodge for 2 nights and days with game drives on the Masai Mara!. As with the other accommodation this was excellent. Lovely, well equipped rooms, great food, fab staff and beautifully well tended gardens. It was the a transfer to Mombasa via road and air. We stayed for 4 nights in papillon Lagoon on the Mombasa Coast. Accommodation here was a bit tired but clean and comfortable. Breakfast and lunch were very good with plenty of choice but dinner wasn't quite as good. The friendly staff, local and amazing beach made up for this though! All in all it was a brilliant holiday and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone! Looking forward to our next one!
