Kenyan adventure

Written on: August 19, 2013   |   I visited in July 2013 As part of the celebration of my partner's 60th birthday, he requested that the whole family climb Mt Kenya and then go on safari to the Maasai Mara together. We are a blended family each having 3 children and as they are now all over the age of 18 years, most have partners. So as the usual travel coordinator between us, I took on the role of planning this undertaking for a group of 12. It took 2 years and with the able assistance of Mary Mburu at Primetime Safaris, we were able to fulfil his wishes and have an amazing family holiday.

I was keen to use a local company for our trip and as one of Gary's daughters had been to Kenya before doing some volunteer work, she was able to recommend this company and Mary in particular. I emailed her so constantly during the many months of planning, often with very 'western' questions, that when we finally met at Nairobi airport, I was delighted to give her a hug!! I would not have been able to achieve the level of success without her and her suggestions were invaluable. The trip she organised for us was excellent, as were the staff/guides that she organised to accompany us.

We have only been back in Perth a month now and I am sad that the holiday has now been and gone.It was truly a special time in our lives and probably will be a one off as marriages and grand children are not too far away.

I would like to thank Mary personally and on behalf of the family, for helping us have a wonderful and memorable holiday.
I would recommend her and Primetime to anyone who is thinking of travelling to Kenya in the future....as long as the airport reopens soon!!

It has been two years consecutively now that Benfra Clinical Internship services has benefited from Prime Time Safaris services in Ol Moran tented camp for the visiting students from US. Staying in the camp was exciting after the long game drive day, clean, secure environment, with entertainment from the Masai Morans. I can't wait for the 3rd visit this year to the... read more

This was a very refreshing holiday with my daughter, hubby and niece.
We have been on holidays before, but seeing lions so close in Masai Mara was amazing. It was lovely to stay in a tented camp that felt like a five star, this was far way more than our expectation. Good value for money and time.

The pelican was great relaxing and quiet, just what you need to ... read more

We spent nearly two weeks with PrimeTime Safaris and LOVED it! Mary, Richard and our guide David felt like family by the time we left! We visited in October 2011. Can't sing their praises highly enough! We stayed at the Olmoran Tented Camp(wonderful) and at a new lodge that Mary and Richard had just opened. In fact, we were the first guests!

As a family this was the best holiday experience ever.
Our trip to the Masai Mara has well and truly exceeded our expectations from the excitement of seeing all kinds of animals to our excellent accommodation at Olmoran Tented Camp. We couldn’t have hoped for more. Our guides were fantastic and looked after us at all times. They were wonderful and shared their kno... read more
