We had a tight nine-day programme and wanted to pack in the maximum possible in that period to get a feel of the "essence" of Kenya. Managed to do that and much much more. They crafted a very well thought out itinerary - covered a day stay in Nairobi, mandatory trip to the National Reserve, a Lake, White sand Beaches and of course a trip to the Equator - one of only 13 countries through which this imaginary line passes. The best part of our visit was exploring the majestic Maasai Mara and the visit to the Maasai Village. Having a Maasai Guide was great - he knew his way around, was able to communicate clearly in English and gave us some interesting information about the animals and Birds living in the Reserve. Bhavana provided us a detailed brochure with information about the places we were visiting, Do’s and Don’ts, Suggestions and Tips, Currency required, Weather forecast etc. One suggestion to for her local guide, he sometimes did not stop in the correct location - where camera angle would be best for photography. They need to be trained on the same. Also, Vehicle ignition should be put off, as often there is camera shake with the vehicle in "On" position. Travelling with the family - could not have had a better time for bonding (especially considering we are living in three different locations) and to celebrate my Birthday with that amazing and unique manner the Cake was brought to me by the Resort Staff at Masai Leisure Camp. Will forever be etched in memory. Our Overall experience - Would like to come back again - Need I say more!!
Thanks for your support in arranging booking to Ol Pajeta on such a short notice. It was a pleasant stay rather I will say one of the best so far in Kenya and my family can remember it for entire lifetime. We didn’t face any issues during our stay. I would like to share my experience of Ol Pajeta with this post.... Serena tented camps are placed very well inside the conservancy. We reached Ol Pajeta at 1:00 pm and on the first day while having lunch we spotted African Bull Elephants (a herd of 15) just 10 feets away from the dining hall near the watering hole. Imagine taking a selfie with African Bull Elephant, I did.. Weather was awesome, clear sky, the temperature here in day rises a bit due to the altitude (6800+ ft from sea level) as compare to Nairobi. We did 3 game safaris and in all of them we spotted Big 4 (only leopard was missing). Just after finishing our dinner, while waiting for our guide to take us to Night game drive we spotted 2 White rhinos near the water hole, close to dining hall. The one white rhino was huge with very big front horn (really big almost 25 to 30 inch) and second rhino was much smaller (might be male and female). What else you want, no need to go for game drive in OL Pajeta animals comes near to your tents and pays back your money worth. Our night game drive started from 9-11 pm and we were the only one in the forest, Just after 10 min we started our game drive a big male bull elephant which was hiding behind the trees came close to our car and threatened us to go away….was a scary event.
Bhavna is now a great friend. Over the years I have booked many Safaris and other Leisure trips through her and she has never ever failed me. Being a passionate wildlife photographer myself, Its important for me to stay and go to places that suit my requirements and Bhavna would always know the best for me. However, she would also remember always that I would travel with my family (wife and 2 kids) so she would also ensure that the location and stay were comfortable and enjoyable even for the kids. Another important thing that I must appreciate about Bhavna. Unlike many tour operators who are only bothered about the bill value, she would always suggest ways and means to save unnecessary costs. I have always referred Bhavna to many of my friends who have traveled to Kenya/East Africa and they have always come back really happy and satisfied. Our itineraries are always very well planned. Customized to suite specific needs, Sensitive about cost not compromising on quality. When one travels outside one’s country, one needs to depend upon his/her tour operator to guide him/her well. That’s exactly what I have always experienced while finalizing my travel itinerary with Bhavna. She will always recommend what’s best and explain the local nuances of the country and the place one is visiting. I have enjoyed every single aspect of my trips however being able to experience the wildlife of Africa and being able to capture those unbelievable moments through my lenses is definitely extra special. The quality of guides during an African Safari are most critical, they are the ones who would always be there with you from when you are picked up and then dropped back at the hotel or Airport after the trip. Thus, they are your driver and also your wildlife expert. Again, another experience that I have no complaints about with Bhavna. They are always friendly, cheerful, patient with kids and keen wildlife lovers. Before even we start the travel, all possible local nuances, possible hazards (bad roads, etc) were always informed in advance. Important things like Park fees, etc which require to be paid on the spot are also explained well in advance. Luckily, we didn’t have any bad experiences. Of-course when you travel such remote destinations, there could be some issue like food being very different and not to your palate, or an occasional puncture, etc but that’s a part of the adventure and one must embrace it. I have mostly travelled with Family and friends; they have all enjoyed equally. When you go for Safaris with little kids (I am taking mine since the time my younger daughter was 4 and the elder one 10) there are times when they get bored or tired, thus it’s important to also stay in camps/hotels where there is enough to keep the kids busy - Swimming pool, games area, etc. Bhavna would always ensure that she books places that would suit my kids. Overall my experience – Brilliant so far.
