8 days safari

Written by: Abeer Godse on 13 January 2021

We did an 8-day safari from Nairobi to Mombasa which covered Amboseli National Park, Tsavo West, and Tsavo East. Paul was a wonderful guide whose 15 years of experience was evident as he always put us in the best position to see the most wildlife. We spotted the big five and many more. We were also lucky enough to see Mount Kilimanjaro. Paul was professional, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. It was a wonderful trip! We highly recommend Direct Kenya Safaris!
