Dear Agnes, Gerald, Maurice and Olias –
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with our recent Kenya/Tanzania safari experience. I live here in Kenya, as a Peace Corps volunteer, and found Agnes to be extraordinarily helpful in planning this trip for my friends visiting from America.
We wanted to stay under $3000 for our ground arrangements, including Tanzania and Kenya stops, as well as airfare to/from Nairobi and Mombasa and I was very happy with the accommodations for this trip- great food, great service.
The Wildlife Lodges at Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater were wonderful, same for Amboseli Sopa, Lake Nakuru Lodge and Ol Moran Camp in Kenya. It was great to top off the trip with a few nights in the luxurious Mnarani Club, overlooking Kilifi Creek.
Our guides were excellent – personable and quick to pick up on the needs and preferences of their travelers.
I was also impressed with the accessibility of the president of the company, Agnes, when we had some issues crossing into Tanzania. That’s always the litmus test for me – how the inevitable little aggravations are handled.
I will certainly recommend Mara Gates to my friends and hope to have the chance to travel with you again. Thanks again.
