Diani Beach to the Masai Mara and Back Again: The Lynch Mob Story! I began this journey by reviewing multiple safari providers, narrowing the field down to 5 and contacting them all for quotes and information.
Some were helpful and informative but by far the most helpful, informative and accommodating was Marco not to mention he is by a considerable margin the least expensive (i will get to that later).
Marco is an extremely experienced operator who can advise you according to your specific needs, is a local (to Diani) man and knows everyone in the safari business.
We discussed (via email) options, dates, duration etc and eventually (due to me not him) arrived at a plan. I had to accommodate my 70 year old mother, my three children of 7, 13 & 21 (plus her 22 year old partner), my 20 month old Grand Daughter and my 40 year old wife!
Of particular concern to me was the health and safety of the children; this is mainly why we decided to visit Governors Camp for the quality of experience and the medical capability they have should it be required.
The crux to this plan was waiting for a last minute deal for Governors camp. We were due to fly from Ukunda airstrip on the 28th Oct 2019 for a 2 night 3 day safari; Marco booked the flights in May but advised me to wait for a last minute deal on the camp. I was conscious this was a gamble but we had a solid back up plan and i had faith in Marco by this point.
I contacted Marco throughput the preceding months with various questions which he always answered promptly and thoroughly. With one week to go Marco still advised to hold out a few more days to go firm on the booking of Governors Camp. He confirmed the booking at the agreed price 5 days before and i asked him to send a car to my villa at Diani to pick me up so we could meet each other finalise the specifics of the safari and pay by Visa at his office. Although a gamble the overall cost saving was significant.
Marco gave me an invoice and final itinerary and said 2 cars would be at my villa 0700hrs prompt for collection of my family and i to transfer to Ukunda on the 28th Oct. Fast forward a few days and at exactly the designated time 2 pristine cars with two lovely drivers (& Marco!) came to collect us. They took us to the air strip, Marco gave me the paperwork and park fees and wished me a fantastic time saying he would call me when i got back. What was particularly striking was how well he knew everyone.
Needless to say we had and absolutely tremendous time thanks entirely to Marco. The safari itself? Wow!!!
4 days Safari Our trip start in Tsavo East Nati park, next day Amboseli and the last one was Taita Hills.
It was amazing experience. Our guide / driver names Bonnie was very polite, communicative and friendly person. If you would like to see a lot of animals and have the best time ask for him! We learned a lot and also we saw every kind of animals living in those parks. Bonnie knew exactly what he is doing and he took us on the place where the animals were at the moment.
Accomodation was nice, with great food and amazing views.
So if you decided to spend some time in Safari, visit Marco Polo, ask for Bonnie and after that just enjoy it! 🙂
Awesome Safari tour with Marco Polo Safaris We booked a three day Safari Tour with Marco to the Tsavo East and West Park in Kenia.
Marco booked everything within 3 hours and even took care of our wishes for hotels and the use of a Jeep.
Moreover we were quite late booking everything, since another agency ditched us last minute, so he even managed to organize everything two days before our trip should started.
Our Guide Sammy was a really nice and reliable driver. He was always punctual and he had a very deep knowledge about the park and the animals.
With him we made it to even see lions hunting in the park. Also very nice was that only me and my boyfriend were alone in a car with the driver, so we didn’t had to be stuffed with 6 people in a car trying to get a good animal picture without other people on the picture.
The Hotels Marco has chosen for us were a dream. The food was very good, the rooms comfy and clean and the view amazing. Our favorite was the salt lick lodge were you had a direct view from your room to the water holes.
We couldn’t have thought about a better experience in Kenia, thanks a lot Marco we would always book with you again!
