Amazing trip ! All went according to plan !!
I had a 3 days safari with adventure Africa and it went great ! Dickson was always very responsive to all my messages, I message him the day I was flying to Nairobi , he replied and my driver was at my airport hotel in time as promised . We set off to Maasai Mara at 9 ish but since I was joining a group there is always the assumption that we need to wait, the drive to massai Mara we stopped in the Rift Valley which has amazing views, the stop was like 15 mins or so, then we stopped in Narok for lunch and got in the maara around 4 pm, which still time to have a game drive, we saw few animals and we managed to see lions that day. The drive to the park is long around 6 hrs, nothing to do with the company , the roads are not that great, and the part that is paved there are so many trucks that is impossible to go faster ! Our driver peter was great and a good driver . They cannot go faster than 80km and they do not, also because the trucks will slow you trust me, never seen so many trucks in my life! The full day in the maara was great, we saw everything including the elusive leopard ! 5 seats of lions, elephants and etc, the only thing we did not see was the rhino, but I saw plenty in lake Nakuru on my 3rd day. The accommodation was good and the food there great too. I did waste a day driving from the maara to lake Nakuru , which is a bummer but again nothing to do with the agent , it’s a long drive and the damn trucks are everywhere ! I was please with my safari, travelled solo, my group had another 2 girls also solo, which was great I guess we were lucky when you join a group it could be more people. Thank you Dickson for the great experience, I always felt safe which is important when travelling alone in Africa . The Maasai Mara is great to see animals, after the maara I went to Tanzania which was awesome as well, but in the Mara the cars cab get off track and get close to the animals , I. The Serengeti you cannot, though I saw everything there too.
