African Safari Diaries: Nancy’s First Experience Of A Kenyan Safari

We are thrilled to share Nancy from the USA’s experience of a Kenyan Safari with us in our latest edition of African Safari Diaries. She travelled whilst Covid-19 restrictions were still in place but we are happy to share that Kenya has since lifted all restrictions.

What made you choose to go on an African Safari? Was this your first time visiting Kenya and going on safari?

Nancy told us that she and her husband first saw this trip advertised by Jim West Craftour’s, a tour company in the US, and that this inspired them to book as they are both animal lovers and love to travel and so this was the perfect match.
This is the second time they visited beautiful Africa, the first time was a trip  to Morocco. However, was their very first safari and hopefully not their last!

How did you hear about Somak Luxury Travel?

Nancy said: “We try to travel with Jim at Craftour’s as much as possible because he puts together trips like no other!”

Where did you stay whilst on your Safari and what was your favourite property?

The first few days of our trip we toured around Nairobi and stayed at the Nairobi Serena Hotel!  Absolutely gorgeous, rooms above average the food top notch!  A true delight.
When we were on safari we upgraded to tents with windows and doors at Sweet Water Serena Camp! Fantastic! Beautiful! Peaceful!  Seeing animals at the watering hole was outstanding!

What were your highlights from your trip?

The safari naturally seeing all the animals roaming free melts my heart.  Culturally, I enjoyed Karen Blixen museum, visiting the animal sanctuary (elephants and giraffes).. there are too many highlights to mention them all!
Our driver was Dan and our group absolutely loved him!  Thank you for making our dream come true in your beautiful country!
Any advice or tips for anyone thinking of going on a Safari? Any thoughts on travelling post-covid?
Africa was extremely conscious of Covid 19, they took extra special precautions by wearing masks, having  sanitising stations and gloves at the buffets. wWe were all very impressed with this!
Thanks so much Nancy for sharing your experience with us. We are so delighted you had a fantastic time on your first safari in Kenya!
