Kenya – Here we come!

An African safari often carries the reputation of being the 'trip of a lifetime'. For us, Kenya was no different. The 'memsahib' at home declined to come along, labelling this as a 'boys' trip out'. That gesture made our holiday even more special. First time to Africa, first 'boys' trip, first guided trip, first time that we (generally Do-It-Yourself travellers) had parted with our hard earned money even before the trip started!

The TravelHTT team advised us well about the itinerary, and welcomed us on arrival at Nairobi. James Kimunge, our driver-guide, quickly turned into our teacher, continuously sharing his wisdom with us very generously. A hawk would probably envy James' eyesight. James surprised us with his spotting abilities, for example, being able to identify Cheetas from a little patch of colour in the grass, or Lions from the lash of a tail far away. We learnt an incredible amount about animals, birds and ecology of the parks. My 16 year-old son was open mouthed in amazement very often. I was afraid that he would soon turn into a mobile fly trap.

The vehicle which was virtually our home for six days was very comfortable, maintained in top condition. James navigated through the tracks with ease, and knew his way around washed out tracks which we encountered frequently, being the rainy season. Our marvellous first African safari experience has inspired us to plan our second safari with TravelHTT during March-April, 2014.

Thank you, TravelHTT team!

Kwaheri!

HTT service in Kenya was superb. The driver cum guide Steven Njuguna was very courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. He made us feel that we should visit the place again and again.

It's my pleasure to thank you very much for your great help and assistance for my groups in Saudi Arabia.
I remember how difficult it was in the beginning - it took us a lot of coordination, discussions and explanation and finally it all went very smoothly without many problems at all.

I think it was you who did your very best to organize everything in a very efficient and professional way. I'm 100% sure that without you we could have never materialized this request for our clients.

First of all let me thank you for the wonderful Kenya Experience with HTT. It was one of the memorable Trips.

All the arrangements were perfect right from the groups Meet & Assist until the final departures. Everything went well just as planned.

Special appreciation for Mr. Irfan Ahmed & the knowledgeable & lively guides Mr. Anthony, Mr John & Mr. Sammy

I would really appreciate Irfan handling for the group was excellent, professional & he is a real gem for the company. He made the group comfortable & was always around catering the requirements for the group.

The group & I had a wonderful time in your beautiful country & good Kenyan massage.

The Hotel was good as per the 4 star standard & the hotel staff were very friendly at all the three hotels.

Mara Sarova Hotel in Masai Mara, the staff was friendly & had a lovely ambience. They went out of the way & made the group comfortable & would definitely recommend for the 4 star accommodations in future.

The Lion Hill lodge main restaurant was undergoing renovation which I was not aware until the day of inspection, but later it was solved & the hotel arranged a group dinner at the pool side which was great.

With regards to the Ground handling, I would definitely utilize your services for Kenya for our future FIT as well as group trips.

In addition your timely response to all my questions & concerns while booking the group was much appreciated.
The itinerary was good as per your suggestion.

Thanks for the lovely souvenir & the brochures & looking forward to work together for our future business in Kenya with Travco Branding. - Kurrat Dhanse, Travco L.L.C

We had a wonderful trip to Dubai and your hospitality was fantastic.
Desh had really looked well after us and was ever so accommodating.

Thank you very much indeed

Thank you very much Team (Including Irfan Ahmed / Anthony ) for a Beautiful Kenyan Holiday Experience. I had to say i could not resist writing to express hearty Gratitude for a superb Holiday experience I happen to have had starting 26th July 2010 until 30th July 2010.

I must say I extremely enjoyed without any hassles the whole trip and was so happy deep within that i felt so joyous returning back home and writing to your office about the whole experience.

Anyways, my deep hearty Thanks to the Tour Guide Anthony who made it so wonderful and not to mention the Planners in your office who made sure of every detail about the Customer Satisfaction on the Best Business Terms.

I would surely say to keep up the credibility to book future tours from your office (or recommend friends and relatives) and expect to get the same or may be another superb experience worth the expenditure of the tour programme.

Hoping to continue the best relationship started with the Kenyan tour - Mr. Kamlesh Lakhmichand Bhatia

It's been a month since we returned from our safari, and we are still coming down from the high that it was!

It was one of the easiest vacations we have experienced as a family, thanks to the excellent arrangements made by your company, and the outstanding driver/guide provided. The weather cooperated almost 100% with our adventure, and the accommodations were very good overall. We were able to see all the "Big Five" and so many more animals, and we took almost 2000 photos amongst the five cameras we had with us. The trip-concluding lunch at 'Carnivore' was well-appreciated by all, and our children were amazed by what the restaurant had to offer!

A great deal of credit for the success of our trip obviously lies with you and your office, where the trip was so well arranged. That being said, we don't know if we can say enough good things about our driver/guide Sammy N'Degwa. Sammy met us on time at the airport, and was easily identified as soon as we had picked up our baggage. We had a great first impression of him as he carefully drove us through the Nairobi night traffic to our first hotel, and explained what to expect the next morning for our pickup. (The Fairmont hotel was very nice and we were able to enjoy a relaxing evening, a good night's sleep and an excellent breakfast the next morning). Sammy then drove us to Maasai Mara, stopping so we could take pictures enroute. Despite the sometimes hazardous road conditions, Sammy always ensured our safety and tried very hard to assure our comfort. Sammy seemed to have a sixth sense of where to drive in the parks, and we were never disappointed during any of the outings. Well-informed, Sammy always had answers to our many questions, as well as providing detailed information in the many handbooks he carried. When we weren't asking questions, he would provide information or friendly banter when the road conditions permitted. He always kept a respectful distance from the wildlife, yet ensured we could take excellent photos of the animals we saw. We are convinced that we were able to see so much more than others, having Sammy as our guide.

During our last day on the trip back from Lake Nakuru, Sammy suggested we stop at Lake Naivasha for a brief boat tour. We were able to see several families of hippos in the water and numerous birds. Then we were guided for a walk amongst wildebeest, topi's, gazelles, and were able to view giraffes from a relatively close distance. To say the least, it was an eye-opening, jaw-dropping experience, one that will stay in our memories for a lifetime. Sammy then drove us to the lunch, and we were very pleased he agreed to join us at our table. He then drove us to the airport with plenty of time make the flight and we reluctantly said our good-bye's.

Sammy N'Degwa is to be commended for his attention to detail, friendliness, expertise, communications skills, timeliness, safe-driving skills, and his obvious 'sixth sense'! He is a valuable member of your team, and exemplifies the kind of driver-guide that any guest would want to lead a safari adventure. We have already been asked by several acquaintances about safaris and we have no hesitation in recommending HTT as a company, and specifically Sammy as a guide. We hope someday to return to Nairobi or Tanzania, and we hope Sammy will still be in the business to be our guide.

Again, many thanks for the excellent adventure! Our family was able to make many happy lifetime memories. - Eric Esdale
