Family experience of a lifetime!
Thankyou to Daniel Francis and the Transtrek Safaris team, we had a fantastic time and have memories for life. Daniel organised a 10 day safari around our wishes to visit Samburu NR, Lake Nakuru NP, Lake Naivasha and the Masai Mara and his knowledge, advice and communication were exceptional. We were very fortunate to have Tony as our guide and his knowledge of the flora and fauna was outstanding. Tony was great at ensuring our 10 and 12 year old daughters were always engaged and they loved his friendly and fun personality. Daniel gave us the option of visiting the Naboisho Conservancy on the edge of the Masai Mara, where the Masai are the landowners and are very involved in the running of the Wildlife Conservancy and see and reap the benefits of the conservation of wildlife. The Wilderness Camp in Naboisho is run by Masai, and it is a very special experience. We did a full day trip into the Masai Mara and saw an incredible array of game including a cheetah kill and leopard up close, but we also had fantastic game viewing in Samburu and Naboisho to match the Mara. The accommodation Daniel recommended and organised was exceptional, especially Intrepids Camp in Samburu and the Wilderness Camp in Naboisho Conservancy.
Thanks again to Daniel, Tony and the Transtrek team, great work!
Great safari off the beaten track
Having had safaris in several other African countries this was our first safari to Kenya and it compared very favourably. Daniel arranged a luxury safari off the beaten track exactly as we requested. Rather than following the more common tourist routes, our safari was based around the central Kenyan parks covering lakes, highlands and semi-arid areas. A diverse range of habitats with an equally diverse range of mammals (which included the big 5) and birds.
Accommodation ranged from lodges to hotels to tents and all were very good to excellent. Peter was our driver/guide. He was extremely capable both as a guide and a driver, and very patient when we struggled to see the animals.
Overall an excellent, well organised safari. I would use Transtrek again if we visit Kenya in the future.
Top quality safari
We booked a 4-day safari in Masai Mara and Lake Naivasha. The driver Peter was very professional and hospitable. The first night was spent Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge and the remaining two nights at Basecamp Masai Mara. Truly excellent hotels in every aspect. Basecamp was very integrated in the nature and involved in the local community. We had the luck to see 4 out of 5 of the “big five”, excluding rhinos. The booking process was very smooth and hassle free. Daniel was a pleasure to deal with and even booked our flights to and from Watamu after the safari. I can highly recommend this tour operator and also Kenya as a destination - me and my girlfriend had the travel of our lives.
Our guide was in communications with other guides to get us to the best places to view the wild life. The service was excellent. The safari tour was so much more than I expected. I went without expectations and was not disappointed anywhere with anything.
A truly magical experience from booking to safari
From the very beginning planning and booking the customer care by Daniel was exceptional, kept us up to date with everything. The additional requirements we needed were all taken care with, a personal touch made us feel at ease. Upon arrival our guide Antony was so welcoming and before we could catch a breath we were on our way. The Hotel and lodge at Lake Naivasha was truly lovely, with amazing views of the wildlife right outside your door. Arriving at Masai Mara was breathtaking and Antony our guide was excellent he really made the Safri come alive. Antony made sure we seen all the big 5 and many more, memories we can keep for ever. I would recommend Transtrek to anyone who wants to have the magical experience we had.
