We Recommend AfricanMecca As Your Safari Travel Agent

We Recommend AfricanMecca As Your Safari Travel Agent

Below Review First Appeared On Our Google Reviews Page

We’ve just returned from a 14 day holiday in Kenya using AfricanMecca as our travel agent.  We never used a travel agent before and Raza and his team made this trip seamless.  Our trip consisted of 2 nights in Nairobi and 11 days on Safari. On arrival in Nairobi we were greeted by our transportation specialists who gave us private transportation to the Nairobi Serena hotel (we enjoyed our transportation specialists, who were always professional, warm and welcoming and who were always waiting for us when we needed to move from place to place in Nairobi).  On our request, AfricanMecca arranged a Nairobi City Tour and a half day Limuru Country Tea Plantation tour.  Both tours were fascinating. It was great that we had the same tour guide for both, being comfortable to ask questions.  The drive alone to Limuru was so informative.  Most people go straight to Safari, we highly recommend a stay in Nairobi to get an introduction to the people and their culture.

On our 11 day safari we stayed at 4 camps in 4 different locations.  Our first stop was Amboseli Reserve, staying at Satao Elerai camp.  Our guide was fun and knowledgeable and introduced us to morning and afternoon game drives with tons of information about the animals, sundowners, and the Masai Village. The Masai Village visit was one of our most memorable events of the trip.  At Amboseli we saw Elephants, lions, hippos, hyena, flamingos, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, cape buffalo, many varieties of antelope/gazelle, wort-hog and tons of birds.  The camp was very comfortable and the staff very friendly.

Our 2nd stop was Lewa Private Conservancy.  Here we were introduced to the difference of the Reserve vs. the Private Conservancy.  This was an amazing place.  Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the animals as well as the flora/fauna.  He also answered so many questions we had about the Masai Community.  The camp itself was the most luxurious camp we stayed at. The “tents” were very private and the owners were so welcoming and greeted us every day asking how our day was.  The food was impressive, 5 stars for sure.  We enjoyed the way the safaris were organized with breakfast out in the bush, back for lunch and then back out for an afternoon drive with a sundowner every night.  It was magical.  Here we saw the Cheetah, Elephants, reticulated giraffes, the grevy zebra, cape buffalo, black rhinos, white rhinos (learned so much about the anti-poaching effort), ostrich mating, lions, birds, monkeys, baboons, and so much more.

Our 3rd stop was the Masai Mara Main Reserve, staying at Little Governor’s Camp which accessed by crossing a river in a small boat. The camp is situated next to a marsh where hippos wallowed in the water.  There is also resident wort-hogs at the camp.  Breakfast and lunch were served overlooking the marsh where you could take in the views with your meal.  It was beautiful.  The morning and afternoon game drives were fabulous.  We saw the leopard!  This is one of the hardest to find but on our way out of camp there she was crossing the road, looking for her cub!  Not only did we get to see a leopard we were able to witness the wildebeest migration, seeing them cross the river.  We didn’t witness any animal being attacked by the crocodile, but did see a dead wildebeest floating down the river.

Our last stop was at the Masai Mara North Private Conservancy, staying at the Karen Blixen Camp.  The camp tent was right on the river, facing hippos wading in the water.  We also saw crocodiles sunbathing on the shore.  This is a very family friendly place, but also perfect for couples.  We were able to witness cheetahs on the hunt for wildebeest (although they didn’t get one this time), lions eating a zebra, hyenas tearing a zebra remain to shreds with jackals and vultures swarming, and little lion cubs playing around.

We would highly recommend using AfricanMecca as your safari travel agent.  We will be using them next time.  Everything went as scheduled and without issue.  THANK YOU (Asante Sana) RAZA!
