We loved our trip with Gamewatchers to Mara and Amboseli. If you can only take or afford one trip a year or so, take this one. Julie at Gamewatchers will arrange everything and within an hour you'll know your itinerary and have some great options to chose from--no hidden or unexpected costs. For us, everything came off just as planned. Both camps were fantastic for seeing plants and wild game. The guides were extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the wild animals and their habitats--a real education. We loved the whole philosophy behind the Porini approach of setting up a Conservancy with the Masai, hiring them to run the camps and be guides and preserving the area. The tents were great and solar powered. The tent where we could socialize and eat was fun after a full day of exploring. The privacy of the reserve was a real benefit and was a shared experience with like-minded people who wanted a great time, see great wildlife and experience a campsite--not the usual hotel/lodge with a pool and a room. The airport to airport and all things in between accommodations made it easy. We'll be back. Thanks Gamewatchers.
