Kenya and Tanzania Safari Review

David Policansky from United States travelled with Discover Africa in November 2022

Superb trip, well arranged!

Discover Africa arranged a trip for my wife and me and two friends to visit national parks in Tanzania and to to go to Nairobi, Kenya for a couple of days to visit Karen Blixen’s house (Karen Blixen is best known in the US for her memoir, Out of Africa and of course the movie) and to stay at Giraffe Manor.

All the arrangements were carefully made and worked well, and our contact at Discover Africa, Adelle Bell, was very reachable by text, email and WhatsApp. The people she contracted to meet us and take us places were outstanding (I’ll mention Freddy, Adamson, and Anderson in particular).

The accommodations were very good with helpful, friendly staff. The lodges–the Acacia Farm Lodge outside the Ngorongoro Crater National Park and especially the Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge in Serengeti National Park–were first rate with outstanding staff and excellent food.

The safaris were superb and we added a hot-air balloon flight over the Serengeti by Miracle Experience of Tanzania, an experience of a lifetime. Giraffe Manor, also brilliantly staffed and catered, is absolutely wonderful. The only less-than-perfect aspect of things was getting from Serengeti to Nairobi.

If we could have gone directly, it would have been about an hour or a bit more, and there were 40-passenger planes that did do that. But our route involved four flights in very small planes and took most of the day. All in all, it was a very fine experience, and I recommend Discover Africa without reservation.
