Hello, I have been devouring all the excellent information in your forum and so glad I found it.
In three weeks (september) I head off to Kenya on safari. I am so excited and very nervous. Have never travelled overseas before so I am a bit out of my comfort zone. Takign my mum though so that's a bonus. This is my 40th birthday gift to myself and my long service leave after 20 years of working. Mum will turn 70 whilst we are there too.
Have booked through a local travel agent and we are going with Wild Trek Safari's. We are booked for a 17 day safari. Anyone got any opinions of them?
At the end of the safari we are heading to Rwanda for four days and three nights and have booked two gorilla treks. Once again organised by my travel agent and it says we are using Amahoro Tours. Any opinions on them?
So my first question other than your thoughts on our operators is what are the top four things you wish you had done, known or brought with you on your safari?
