Amazing 12 Days

Written by: Ana-Maria Punshon on 27 July 2020

My mum and I booked this tour with Direct Kenya Safaris for a private safari. Mr Keneth was perfect with suggestions on the best spots and accommodations. We went to Samburu, Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Amboseli, Tsavo West and Tsavo East for two weeks. Many thanks to our guide Paul who was a very knowledgeable guide and an experienced chauffeur. Ask for him for a memorable safari!

The reason we chose them is because they were cheaper and flexible compared to other operators. We saw all the Big Five animals plus thousands of other wild animals. We can't wait to come back!
