The trip to Masai Mara was fantastic. I think from the very first moment I wrote you to get an offer for that trip evrything went just fine. Your offer was exact what I had in mind and the few questions arising from that you gave good and quick response to.
We were picked up at our house on schedule and had good trip out, taken care by driver Peter. The better part of the road was brand new ( a big, positive surprise ), but we of course had to suffer the rough road to make you feel coming to Mara.
We were heartly received at Mara Sopa Lodge nicely situated in the hillside and with its small, two-roomed cottages. (We later experienced that the wall between the two rooms did not reduce the noise much, a good thing to share cottage with someone you know, a small minus ).
The meals and the service around that were very good. We went on afternoon game drive, morning and afternoon the foøøowing day and Peter even managed a bit of game drive on the way to the Airstrip.
Peter showed himself and both an experienced and a very nice driver. I think we were the only group at Sopa during our stay that managed to observe a Cheetah. A flight back to Nairobi and Wilson, smooth and at schedule, and the fabulous lunch at Carnivore ended a very successful trip.
We are already planning to come back next year, then with grandchildren. …….I will come back to a new trip towards the end of the year, but you may start thinking about it!!
Finn Johansen ( and the 3 other groupmembers )
It was a very good tour and I enjoyed a lot. Actually combining all the people was the best thing you'll did. All of us had a good time. I should also mention that driver Simon did a good job. He was very co-operative and explained us a lot of things about the places.
The trip was wonderful, Mara Sopa was beyond our expectations, very beautiful, we will get intouch with you and recommend your company to our friends.
