“Masai Mara is an exceptional game reserve not to be missed. ” - Jayheena

A superb holiday

My wife and I found this company on the web and we were a bit nervous of the quality of the service as we did not know a lot about them. We had planned a birding and game reserve holiday which covered 19 days travelling by safari vehicle. Throughout we were with our birding guide (Peter Wairasho) and our game guide (
and driver) Jackson Mwangi.

What a holiday. Simon, from Dawn in Africa Safaris who organised all our accommodation bookings and the vehicle, was superb at communication and very clear with the detail. He took care that we were not travelling too many hours in a day and booked us accordingly at all the lodges. His cost was very reasonable.

Peter, our birding guide, has a superb knowledge of birds and where to find them. It was a pleasure having him with us. Nothing was any trouble for him - he took care of everything and made sure there was nothing wanting on our birding trips. He is a real gentleman and can't recommend him more highly if you are birding in Kenya.

Jackson, our game guide and driver, can spot a cat a long way off. I don't know where he gets this knack from. We use to challenge him with finding the next big game and he always (almost) obliged. The final challenge was to show us a cheetah hunting at which he laughed (as did we) and next thing we know he showed us a cheetah and her two cubs hunting and killing a Thomson's gazelle. Unbelievable!!
Oh, he is also a good driver.

We cannot praise these two and Simon enough. We will be arranging another trip to Kenya soon (after we have recovered from this one!!).
