Kenya Walking survivors safaris 2017

Written on: September 11, 2017   |   I visited in August 2017 Recently returned from a spectacular tour of Tanzania courtesy of OT and our driver/guide Michael.
We were picked up from the airport and transferred to our hotel and then subsequently to the Tanzanian border where we were handed over safely to the next driver who took us to the start of our safari in Arusha.

Lake Manyara did not disappoint! despite running late because of immigration officialdom at the border, Michael was able to show us a range of animals and birds in sensational locations.
Overnight accommodation was excellent (but make sure you know how much your bar bill will be! - it was not extortionate, but our surprise on settling our account meant we were disinclined to leave the staff a tip - which we would otherwise have done).
Another day game drive in Manyara then on to Serengeti where we camped in the middle of the park surrounded by the African noises of the night (how we went back to sleep after the roaring of the lions is amazing!)Ngorogoro crater is a wonder and stuffed full of wildlife even in the dry season. We ended our trip in Tarangire National Park - wow! Elephants in abundance demonstrating their love of water and mud! Lions, leopards and cheetahs all appearing obligingly!

We (my 79 year-old father, my 19-year-old daughter and I) just returned from the 12-day Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Amboseli, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Zanzibar safari. I can't say enough good things about our experience. The accommodations were great (they surpassed our expectations), the food was good (even excellent at times), and during the planning process, M... read more

My wife and I booked a customized Safari to east Africa (Kenya+Tanzania ).This was a wonderful lifetime experience and the memories are still fresh. The safari covered Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Amboseli, Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater Parks with private cook and driver/guide in the car.

We also booked the hot air balloon ride in Masai Mara. We were lucky enough ... read more

This being the second trip under KWSS all I can say is thanks to Mr Oteino who made everything possible for me and my family. This time we decided to go to Masai Mara and Amboseli. The trip was well organized and the price was reasonable and affordable. Thanks to the driver Mr Daudi for making us experience the best and explained every question we asked regarding t... read more

Our group booked 12 day tour with KWSS of Otieno Lysaniash (Otieno) in Aug 2016. During the discussion for booking via email, Otieno seems to be a very professional businessman. He replies email very fast and in a very good manner. We at that time were so happy thought that we would have a very unforgettable trip in Kenya. We paid 50% deposit as requested by him.

Once we arrived in Nairobi, we continued to received this high level of attention from Otieno and our driver/guide. In fact, ... read more

Avoid the temptation to rush from one "big 5" to the next, make time to sit quietly and absorb the African ambience - and don't neglect the smaller creatures, they are all delightful in their way
