    Amos,

    Let me start by saying that my family and I enjoyed one of the best safari experience in our lives. Thank our tour guide Mr. Albert for the information on animals and for giving us a wonderful drive both off-road and on tarmac. The land-cruiser was quite comfy and the music system entertaining. The game viewing was brilliant since we saw lions, elephants, kudus, gerunuks and of course the leopards. The visit to the samburu homes was fantastic.
    In all the tour left us wanting some more and we sure are going to plan another tour in 2016. The samburu nyama choma was awesome!! I will definitely recommend you to my colleagues and friends.
    Regards.
