We just completed the most incredible vacation ever. The two of us are real animal enthusiasts, both with zoo backgrounds in the United States. We had wanted to visit Africa for years and had finally saved up the vacation time and the money for such a journey. We set up our safari over the internet with Mountsafaris adventure
They were so great to constantly correspond back with us and tweak our itinerary. Jeremiah was so accommodating in getting all of our African desires met. We traveled all over Kenya and Tanzania with two wonderful guides. They knew the parks, the wildlife, and the people so well. Both were great ambassadors for their beautiful countries. For three weeks we immersed ourselves in the animals and culture of Africa. We watched elephant digging for water in Samburu, cheetah hunting gazelle in Ngorongoro Crater, six male lion eating a freshly killed cape buffalo in Maasai Mara, and wildebeest in single-file parading in front of Kilimanjaro at sunrise in Amboseli. We saw thirty-seven different species of birds of prey, and fifty-four different mammals. We were in heaven. Mountsafaris adventure helped us have our dream vacation. It was so worth it.

Thanks for forwarding this useful information. Kenya offers a wide variety of attractions, from vast plains teeming with game to cultural experiences with the Masai and Samburu people, making it one of Africa's leading safari destinations. You can explore the Kenya by 4-wheel drive, lose yourself in the herds on horseback, track a Rhino on foot with a safari guide or dive into a coral reef teeming with life. Kenya safaris offer a high degree of flexibility taking in Kenya's full range of accommodation options ranging from temporary fly-in camps to luxury lodges but more importantly enable far greater access to areas affected by constantly changing seasonal patterns or game movements of Kenya.

One has to be careful with safari companies anywhere in Africa. On too many occasions the poor animals are intimidated by dozens of vehicles carrying tourists with cameras, just to get a glimpse of a lioness eating its kill. I heard of instances when drivers radio one another as an interesting animal is spotted, and then a race of jeeps rush to the spot and surround the creature. Not a very friendly way at all.

When choosing a company, it is advisable to ask questions about the timing, the size of the group, whether you should expect to see other vehicles in the area, how close the cars will approach wildlife... just to get a feel how friendly you are going to be with the fauna.
