the staff and food and rustic luxury were wonderful June 2018


Travel from Cape to Cairo

We stayed at Mara Expedition camp in mid Feb 2018 after having to be switched from our original planned location at Mara Plains Camp due to a lioness and her cubs denning under our reserved tent! However we loved Mara Expedition and the staff and food and rustic luxury were wonderful. We had the BEST guide (Kevin) and simply sensational sightings literally from the drive in from the airstrip until the last moment of our transition day. Can not recommend highly enough. Just after our stay the torrential Mara rains and flooding started and the camp was washed away as it sits on the bank of the Ntiakntiak river. But they are rebuilding and planning on reopening shortly. Read more

wonderful way to enjoy the scenery/landscape June 2018


Napa & Sonoma A Cyclist’s Paradise

We just took an Anniversary trip to Napa/Sonoma and had the BEST time! Biking was such a wonderful way to enjoy the scenery/landscape. Our guides were perfect- open and helpful communication without feeling intrusive. Maps and recommendations were a great framework to give us structure to our trip, while still giving us the flexibility to do what we please with our days. On our way home we started making plans to try Ireland for our next anniversary trip! Read more
