The whole trip was fantastic. Undoubtedly our best ever family holiday. Accommodation was excellent throughout, culminating in the fantastic tented camp at the Masai Mara.

10 day family adventure in Kenya

Seeing a huge crocodile devour a wildebeest 20m away; being 4-5m away from a female cheetah and her cub; waking at the edge of lake Naivasha to hear hippos barking; the early morning sounds of Africa; running the Mara with my two sons, a Masai tribesman and a herd of zebra; coming across a fresk "kill" on a walking safari - feeling all of a sudden very vulnerable!; watching the monkeys monkey about on a hammock at the Country Club; stalking and finding a pride of 11 lions and observing them as they began to hunt; watching as my sons learned to make fire with the Masai; visiting Talek Primary School to meet David, his staff and the wonderful school children; seeing an African Fish Eagle swoop down to the water around our boat to take a fish;the amazing "night sky" in the Masai Mara; meeting Max - the very naughty chimp (throws poo)!; baboons - so funny and human-like; the sounds and smells of the forest; the beautiful colours of the birds in Africa; standing on the equator with one foot either side; the dated elegance of Lake Nakuru River Lodge - loved the open fire and the mozzie nets and the 1960s lamps; cold Tusker beers and Kenyan tea; the baby elephants at Sheldricks and the glorious flowers everywhere.  So not much, really!

James drove very considerately and safely given the condition of some of Kenya's roads.  Our safari vehicle was spacious and comfortable although the seatbelts didn't always inspire confidence.  I'd make a point of this before departure next time ... must have working seatbelts all the time.  James was happy to answer questions and offered useful tips and observations.  He was very good at finding game and kindly arranged, at our request, for us to visit a local school on the last day of our trip.  He inspired confidence and ensured our trip ran smoothly.  We felt very safe with him.

Bring a beanbag teddy as a camera rest/makeshift tripod. Try and visit the school in Talek to add a bit of balance to your visit. Always have your camera ready! Be patient and try and maintain a relaxed outlook ... Kenya is in Africa! Listen as much as you watch - Africa sounds as good as it looks. Winter is in our summer - take a good fleece for the evenings/early mornings. Get your visa in the UK - much quicker than at immigration. Travel light, as light as you can. For cameras, I recommend the LowePro FastPack 350 - great way to keep cameras and lenses safe, accessible and clean with loads of space for other everyday stuff.
