    Enjoyable fortnight. Made up as a combination of 2 intrepid trips. First week best for culture, second week best for safari, particularly the serengeti. Saw all of the big 5, though in the masai mara I did not really think the truck used for the game drive was suitable. Guide was good, food was decent, lots of carrots. Only real other negative was having to travel back to nairobi in the middle of the trip, then pretty much the same way back the next day. Seemed like 2 wasted days.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • October 1, 2016

    What does a campsite with basic facilities refer to?

    Campsites do have facilities but they usually aren't the same standard you would find in western countries. For example the bathroom facilities can be very basic (the toilets may be a squat-style hole in the ground). There is rarely toilet paper provided and shower facilities can be as simple as a hose pipe spurting out cold water. Wild camps have no facilities at all.

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Chris10th October 2017
      Tour Radar offered many choices all at one easy to use site. I found a trip that met my specific needs for both travel time to tandem a cruise already booked and with the itinerary I was looking for. The tour company was unknown to me so I called TourRadar and spoke with a rep about the tour company, specifically reputation, what was included and what to expect. My questions were addressed, I felt comfortable with the info given and booked the tour ! Thank you
