We were inspired to visit Africa to experience animals in the wild and the culture. The biggest impact on us was the respect that locals and everyone has for the animals. Loved the outdoor shower at Sand River Masai Mara (no fence!), it was cool! We had an intimate dinner under the stars at Lewa Safari Lodge – that was really great!
We loved the guides at both camps that were so informative and made the experience incredible. My favorite moment was having a Sundowner in the middle of a wildebeest herd. For my wife, it was the 45 minutes of watching a lion pride.
Our biggest surprise was the group Sundowner at Sand River with a fire – it was fantastic. Sampson, our guide, joined us and was wonderful and we felt so special to be able to spend time with this special young man.
Sand River also had animals right outside, since there was no fence. After discussing, we had private safaris at both camps and that really gave us autonomy and never felt at anyone else schedule. AND we still met a lot of people at the campsite each night at Sand River. That really allowed everyone to meet each night over drinks and make friends and made that group Sundowner a better experience.
Sacha, Tamlyn and Tobin at Sand River were really fun. They spent time with us and we bonded with them, every night. Sacha was really so COOL and he spent time showing my wife how to do special effects with her camera. He went to great lengths to make it memorable (and we noticed he did this with all of the people there). Maybe he was just himself!
