Overall it was a trip that we will never forget!

We had an amazing time! Arriving to Nairobi, we were welcomed at the airport and taken to our hotel. The hotel was very nice and modern. The next morning we drove to Amboseli. Our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable when it came to animals. We enjoyed the drives a lot.

We were able to see the big 5, and 16 lions close by!

We had a good time. Our drivers Hasan in Tanzania and Jacob in Kenya were nice and helpful. All the accommodations and transport were good. Food was good in all the places. There was delay in the flight from Chicago, hence they gave us seat in United and flew directly to Paris.

The lodges, food, people and guides were exceptional!

The trip was amazing! The lodges, food, people and guides were exceptional. No bad experiences at all, except I checked my luggage on the trip back from Zanzibar-Nairobi-Paris-Montreal and it got lost, but even that has not upset me, I enjoyed Africa so much!
