Safaris Unlimited Mobile Camp

I’ve just returned from an amazing trail ride with Safaris Unlimited. It was fantastic to ride their forward-going horses in the migration across the Masai Mara. A highlight for me was witnessing the delight of those on safari for the first time. If you’ve not been before, you cannot believe the luxurious tents and the quality of the cuisine, particularly for a mobile camp. This was a safari for experienced riders but we were joined by one non-riding partner. They had their own game-drives whilst we rode, which is the perfect option for photographic or birding specialists.

Riding with the Migration

2013 has given me another 100% record of delighted clients. This year I had many “first-timers” on safari, all of whom would hope to go back to repeat the experience. “Massive thank you for the fantastic holiday you planned for us. We all had the most amazing time and it is testament to your in-depth knowledge of the Safari industry that you were able to plan such a great trip”.

Good Morning Mr Giraffe!

I’m also pleased to report that none of my clients suffered disruption to their travels as a result of either the fire at Nairobi airport or the recent siege in the Westgate shopping mall. It is encouraging that on the ground the Kenyans united in the face of these incidents and pulled out all the stops to get things running again so quickly. I have several clients soon to travel to Kenya, and don’t anticipate any problems. Nevertheless, when such incidents do arise, you can rest assured that I will keep you updated and give you candid and timely advice.

If you are in the fortunate position of considering a repeat safari, I always advise a range of activities.

Mobile Camp Dining Table

As a personal illustration, a group of eight are travelling to South Africa and Botswana next April. We are all on the same outbound flight and sharing the first few nights together. One couple is then doing a specialist birding safari, another is visiting relatives, a third have booked a private photographic specialist and private walking with a guide, and I’m going riding with Limpopo Horse Safaris! Everyone is moving on and doing something different every few days before coming together for a couple of nights again before travelling home together. “However you wish to travel” – let’s discuss your personal wish-list and it the safari of a lifetime….
