In doubt? Choose Marco Polo Safaris!
We stayed in the Sentido Neptune palm beach resort from the 22nd of June to the 1th of July 2013.
We really wanted to go on Safari, but couldn't choose who to book with. Our travel agency warned us about booking outside the hotel, but none of the reviews online mentioned horrible trips.
Eventually we went to listen to the offer of Marco Polo Safaris. We arranged a 3 day safari, 6 game drives, one night in Salt lick lodge (Tsavo West) and one night in Manyatta camp (Tsavo East). Our driver was Patrick (really great guy!) and we had the safari van to ourselves (me and my girlfriend).
In short: all our expectations were met. Everything that was promised, was there. No hassle, no problems, no extra costs and a great experience.
We saw elephants (nice photos from the drinking well in the Salt Lick lodge), lions, gazelles, cheetahs, giraffes, leopards, and many more. Unfortunately no rhino or hippo.
Just remember to tip the driver of the van, the guy is 3 days away from home and does everything he can to make sure you see the animals you want!
Final quick tip: know which animals you want to see before you go and check in which park you have the most chance of seeing them.
I recommend Marco Polo Safaris!
