An experience of a lifetime. From day one in Nairobi, throughout our trip in Massai, Mara, Kenya, and the incredible planes of the Serenget and Ngorongoro Crate.
Daniel was immensely helpful from the very start; helping us to design the perfect holiday to celebrate a special wedding anniversary. Nothing was too much trouble.
