    This tour was amazing! The itinerary was well thought-out and didn't leave anything to chance, or miss anything I wanted to see. It felt very comprehensive, though, of course, there's always more to see wherever you go. I was impressed with Intrepid's concern about safety on activities (they risk assess all activities that are recommended by their guides) and ethics, both re: animal welfare and cultural safety. I was expecting the food to be very basic and not particularly exciting but I was wrong. This tour includes a cook, and your "participation" in cooking basically just includes shopping food up - the cook plans your meals and actually cooks them. Which makes for a more relaxing time. Not only that but the food was amazing. Curries, pasta with excellent sauces, lamb chops - you name it, we had it. And they catered well for vegetarians as well. In particular though, the team really made this trip worthwhile. I particularly want to that Chris, Peter, and David (CT to Nairobi section) for making things feel so comfortable, and making sure everyone felt safe during the trip. I also really appreciated Chris's knowledge of the areas we traveled through, which he shared around campfires at night. Overall, I highly recommend this tour as a very comprehensive 'introduction' to Southern and Eastern Africa. I would absolutely travel with Intrepid again given the high quality of service.
