Kenya Coast Reviews

Dear Helen

We had such a wonderful trip to Kenya and the visa issue was soon forgotten!  The lodges were both just fabulous - Suruni is obviously small and the service pretty much bespoke.  There were lots of options for safaris - we had breakfast out every day!  We only shared a jeep couple of times with a lovely American couple - obviously we co-ordinated our drives with them!  Food was delicious - a lot of it - we learned to pick and choose courses - but really excellent.  Staff were knowledgeable and just lovely.  We saw all

the animals we hoped to, apart from lion, but knew we would see them in the Masai Mara!  The drive to Samburu was relatively long - about an hour but we generally saw animals on our way!

Little Governors was also really lovely and of course the drive from the airstrip is very short with the bonus of spitting animals on our way there!  Great accommodation, food and staff!  Drinks not included, which was different to Suruni but the bar was well stocked!  We did early morning game drives and came back for breakfast (we were on our own in the jeep) and one day we had a whole day out which was amazing! Picnic lunch on the plain!  We loved our guide!  Relaxing and having lunch overlooking the waterhole was fabulous.  Gift shop a little underwhelming but think restock planned.

We saw everything we hoped to see apart from a rhino!

Afrochic was another lovely venue - 10 rooms and the most wonderful location and service.  Food was delicious and I had the best facial ever!  Not much to do out of the hotel and I don’t like being harassed by beach vendors but a few days of r&r was the perfect way to end our trip!  The staff made our trip up to Vipingo so easy and booked our ferry crossings for us!  We were greeted on our return as if we had been on an adventure by staff and Guests  alike!

Thank you once again for all your planning and research.  We really appreciated how smoothly everything went from the moment we got off the plane from London.

Hopefully Argentina for us next!

Best wishes

Dear Derek

To be honest with you there is nothing we can think of to improve your service. We have found travelling with Rainbow Tours has been a real joy. The help you provided while planning the trip and before travel was excellent. 

The trip itself was fantastic  and I am not sure we could have asked for more. We felt safe and cared for from the start with the guy who met us off the plane at Nairobi (not sure how he was able to meet us directly off the plane but it was great). The next guy who took us to Wilson Airport via a breakfast stop was really helpful and made sure we knew what our itinerary was again friendly and helpful.

It has to be said I think Samburu was the highlight of the trip. The Elephant Bedroom Lodge was so lovely, Samburu itself fabulous and the people at the lodge and Solomon our driver were unfailingly friendly and charming. The food was delicious and the room so comfortable. The fact we saw leopard, cheetah and lion was extraordinary and this on top of elephants and the animals specific to the region. The birdlife was fabulous and varied.

Lewa was also amazing and again people could not have been friendlier or more helpful. They gave us their best lodge as we were the only guests on arrival which was really special and appreciated as were the surprise breakfast in the bush and camel ride. The fact that they were able to arrange a guided walk and horse riding as well was an added bonus that gave a different perspective on safari’ing. They also arranged a trip up to the mountain forest and night drive both of which were well worthwhile.

Finally Diani and Nomad Sands was amazing. The beach is so special. Again the staff at the hotel were so friendly and helpful, the lodge comfortable and food delicious. We would strongly recommend the trip to Wasini Island and snorkelling. We saw dolphins on the way out to the reef and at the reef the coral and fish were stunning. Swimming with turtles was unbelievable. 

All in all a trip to remember so thank you for your help in sorting the itinerary. If we did it again we might increase the time on safari and reduce the coast stay but we have no complaints only thanks.

Very best wishes

David and Thekla

Kinondo Kwetu was an excellent place to end [our Kenya and Botswana] holiday. The laundry service was limited to 5 items per person per stay

Lovely friendly relaxed resort with clean but clinical rooms. Nice long beachfront for walks and on the whole we were left alone.
