I have been on board the Northern Belle train three times now and cannot explain how wonderful it is. The food is perfect, the train itself is immaculate and the staff give a level of service that I have not experienced elsewhere. The people who work the Northern Belle are incredibly special each & every one of them. I was taken ill on one of the trips & the concern of the staff- even sending me flowers, was extremely kind. I look forward to travelling with them very soon- what a perfectly run experience!

I just want to say a massive thank you to Chloe your reservation manager who was simply amazing, compassionate and understanding with a booking change for my elderly parent-in-laws. Thank you again for all of your help and both are really looking forward to their train journey next year!

We have now had two wonderful experiences with Belmond. Our first experience with Belmond was during our trip to Peru last month. We rode the Hiram Bingham to Machu Picchu and I would definitely recommend it to everyone. The service from the time you board to disembark is like no other. From the food to the tour guide and entertainment on board it's just wonderful!!
Yesterday we returned from the Belmond Las Cataratas in Brazil and it was everything I expected it to be! The room was fabulous and the service impeccable.

      About Belmond

      Belmond is a travel operator that specializes in organizing trips throughout Asia. The boutique company has a global collection of 45 iconic hotels, trains, and river cruises to choose from.

      About Elite Luxury Kenya

      Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

      Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
