Amazing Way to Celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary; Trip of a Lifetime – Kenya and Tanzania

This was an amazing way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and (client’s) 50th birthday. We are so glad that we chose Big 5 to work with us for the trip of our lifetime. From the time we started working with our travel agent, and Ashish at Big 5 we felt well taken care of. Our host in Kenya was great and kept track of us throughout the trip to make sure we were enjoying our experiences and also followed up to see how we were doing after we flew home to Toronto! The trip was planned so well and the order of the game reserves/conservancies and lodges worked really well. We loved all of the places that we stayed in Kenya and would love to return one day. The guides that we had in each location, as well as in Tanzania, were all great (knowledgeable and friendly). Our hosts were also great and we especially liked the experience at our Luxury Camp Lodge where they had a special dinner set up for us under the stars. Our accommodation at an Elephant Camp was so beautiful. The food throughout our stay was incredible and we especially liked the Gibb’s Farm experience with farm-to-table fresh good each meal. Gibb’s Farm was a beautiful place to stay and a nice way to end our trip. We were thrilled to see the Big 5 within the first few days of being on our safari and the diversity of wildlife and topography across the camps we stayed at was perfect.  We already have recommended Big 5 and would hope one day to travel with you again.

We chose Big 5 because of your commitment to sustainable travel – both social and environmental. Understanding the difference between conservancy and game reserve made us look at them differently – we preferred the respect with wildlife on the conservancy (only 5 vehicles allowed around any game at a time) and the engagement with the local people (from staffing in the lodges to sharing in the profits). Two things stood out to us and we intend to stay engaged with them – one was an effort underway in Mara to help young girls with education and the second was the school we visited in Tanzania.
