    Our first Safari experience...

    "... and it was awesome! We booked only the two days/one night formula in the park of Tsavo East. Baraka has been super kind while my fiancée were arranging the journey. Everything has being organized fair and neat, starting from the pickup in our hotel (Mawe Resort in Watamu). After 2 hours we reached the first checkpoint, right outside the Sala Gate. We got a flat tyre there, but after a short pit stop at Crocodile Camp nearby, our jeep was perfectly fit to take us into the park. Our accomodation was at Voi Wildlife Lodge, with buffet menu and a very nice view of the Savanah. The lodge is quite basic, but suitable and right next to the park entrance (Voi Gate). The driver Patrick was very kind and friendly, if I have to remark a thing, I would say his English resulted a little bit unfamiliar to us because of his very marked accent, and he could be more exaustive in describing the animals. Speaking of what, we had the chance to spot elephants (a lot!), giraffas, zebras, hyppos, impalas, cobos, warthogs, baboons, crocodiles, lions (only a small group and they were sleeping, regretfully!). We missed the doa doa (cheetah) and the leopard, better luck next time. In general, I have to say only positive feedback regarding this experience, I hope we will have the chance to repeat that, maybe in other Kenyan parks too."

    Excellent tours and guides

    "There are so many reviews in Italian that I thought an English one would be useful to non-Italians. We organised a number of activities with Baraka and we were pleased with all of them. They picked us up at the airport. We visited Gede, Malinidi, the mangroves, a two night safari in Tsavo East and they they dropped us off in Mombasa for our onward journey. These activities were just for the two of us because of travel timing. The guides were great, the drivers excellent and the communication before, during and after the trip was superb. We organised and paid from London and all went off without a hitch. Trustworthy and very nice. Guides speak English and Italian. Recommend without hesitation."
