East Africa Our second adventure with the Big Five

This was our second adventure with the Big Five. The first was a few years back to Machu Pichiu & the Amazon, which was a life-changing event for us but this trip to witness the Great Migration was even better. These trips take a year or more to plan but our travel agent did a great job in coordinating with the Big Five to see everything we wanted and more. The lodging was terrific especially The Manor (5 star) and the personal attention everyone gave us. All went off without a hitch and it couldn’t have gone any better. Absolutely nothing and no complaints. Having your personnel pick us up at every scheduled airport/location we felt very secure, which is important to traveling to unknown locations and the adventures that follow. The meals were very good, the different National Parks & Sanctuaries were a nice surprise (especially the crater & lake (bird sanctuary) were just astounding! Our drivers were very professional, knowledgeable, spoke good English, timely and personable.  After our second successful trip with the Big Five I would refer you to any/all family and friends who have the adventurous spirit like our family does.

When you see the long-history of culture in the local Villages in Peru & Africa and unfortunately some of the poverty that goes with it including the lack of schools & medical facilities and even shoes/clothing, it really makes one appreciate what we have and want to give back to them (and the protection of their parks/sanctuaries, sacred lands) whenever possible.  I will probably look into a trip in the future with the Big Five.
