The tour was very well coordinated by Hannah and the itinerary suggested was well thought out and covered both Savannah and Lakeshore environments. The accommodation selected was very comfortable indeed with Sweetwaters exceptional and in retrospect we should have stayed an extra day in either Amboseli or Masai Mara. The latter was the pick of the bunch especially at this time of year with the migration on. It was a pity that we did not witness a crossing and the absence of Flamingos at Lake Nakuru which seems to have man made factors contributing to the fact is a cause for environmental and tourist concern. Our guide Simon was excellent, a safe driver , ever so knowledgeable and understood a photographers viewpoint as well and positioned us for some lovely shots. We would without hesitation use Trevaron again if the opportunity arose and do Samburu in the hope of catching the elusive leopard that we missed. In essence the tour was all that we hoped it would be and our family carry long cherished memories and friendships from this experience.
Its a pleasure to work with Trevaron Tours. They are very familiar with the safaris. They cater to your needs and your budget. Their drivers/guides communicate with us very well and their knowledge of the animals
and their habits is excellent! They pick you up at Nairobi airport and bring you back to Nairobi … all satisfied
and excited about the entire trip! Hats off to Trevaron management to put together an enjoyable safari.
I strongly recommend Trevaron to plan your safari.
I chose to book with Serah because she came recommended by a friend. I had never met Serah previously and all communication was done via email from my home-town Perth, Australia. It was to be a get-together of 4 old school mates and three of the spouses; One couple from the US, one from Malawi and two from Australia. Serah is the first travel agent I have come across – and we travel a lot – who actually listens to your needs AND attends to the requests. She was always mindful of replying in a timely manner to all emails. As the group co-ordinator of this particular trip my fellow travellers said it was the best safari they had been on. And these are all ex- Kenyans!
Without Serah’s able organisation I am sure we would not have had such a delightful and memorable trip to Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Parks. I cannot recommend Seraj highly enough.
The Safari Tour was awesome every detail of the travel was taken care of. Kenya is a beautiful country and Trevaron tours highlighted every feature leaving an everlasting impression. Our guide Simon was a charming young man knowledgeable about Kenya wild life and exactly where to spot and view the animals. Patient and warm. Recommend Trevaron Tours – will not regret it.
My wife and I travelled to Kenya and went with Trevaron 9 day tour. We have been to many places in the world and this trip was ranked in the top 3. The knowledge and cooperation of Trevaron staff was well beyond the call of duty. Upon arriving in Nairobi, my wife’s luggage was lost. Hannah, the manager, dealt directly with airline staff to find the luggage and have it picked up for us 2 days later. We stayed in Nairobi a few days – nothing really special there. But one we left the city and started our safari, it was like in a completely different world. People should not worry about security outside Nairobi. Accommodations were wonderful, always clean, large, and with many amenities. Most have swimming pools, and the food was excellent. My wife is gluten intolerant and the chefs met her every day to discuss food alternatives. We had 2 a day safari drives in 4 different safari parks. Our driver/guide – Joshua – knew everything there was to know about the animals/birds. He was also hilarious and kept us in stitches the whole trip. Warning – there is a lot of driving over rough roads. I think we saw ever wild animal and bird known to mankind. We did not go during migration, but saw everything anyway – many herds. Going off-season was fortunate in several ways because we could get up close and personal with the animals. Absolutely wonderful experience.
Ours was a 12 day tour arranged by Hannah of Trevaron Tours in September 2013. She was there to received us at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and personally guided us to the Safari Park Hotel for our first night in Kenya. From there Simon, our capable and affable guide and driver for the next 11 days took over – Masai Mara ( Serena Lodge) for 4 days, Lake Nakuru Lodge, Mt. Kenya National Park Mountain Lodge, Samburu Game Park Lodge and our last night at the Mt. Kenya Safari Club. The game lodges that were arranged for us were excellent and the wild life viewing was great except for lake Nakuru where due excessive flooding, the alkaline nature of the lake had changed resulting in the flamingos flying to other alkaline lakes. We went on to Lake Bagoria where we did see some flamingos but not in such great numbers as we had seen on a previous visit to Kenya. Our visit to Kenya in September was dictated by non availability of accommodation in the Mara in August. We did see theend of the great migration but the best time would be August, to be there in the middle of it. So book early.
Dear Ms. Hannah,
I am sorry for being late to reply to your mail!
Thank you very much for organizing out trip so well! WE thoroughly enjoyed it! It was very well organized and Mr. Charles (our driver) was very good!
The only problem was that the roads are very bad in Kenya – in spite of the fact that the government must be earning good money from SAFARI trips – with the result the travel time was very long! I would like to request you to tell your customers in advance how much time would be spent on travel!
Thanks once again for making our trip enjoyable!
All members have come back with great fun. Thank you very much for your arrangement. And please express our sincere thanks to Cyrus and Avil (not sure the spelling).
Many members enjoyed the trip very much and some of them requested us to arrange next year again. Preliminary, I may arrange two tours next year, one at early Aug and one at early Sep. I want to know for the tour at early Aug, if we go to Tanzania also, what will you suggest?
Is it nessary to fly to Tanzania? Just a preliminary idea, not urgent!!
Once again, I am glad that we have a very good business partner.
Thank you very much
I cant believe after all our e-mails and planning and enquiries to each other our trip is actually over!
It was also so nice to meet you in person Hannah. It was an incredible experience and a tour we will never forget! Everything was so well organized and the game reserves we visited were the best!
You really planned us a wonderfull variety – from Samburu to Sweetwaters to Lake Nakuru to Mara!
Our accommodation was of the highest standard and so all the meals!
We couldn’t understand why you insisted on Sweetwaters because I told you we don’t like sjimpansees, but now I understand!!! It’s the most amazing camp – the setting, the tents and the food was the best we had! So thank you for including Sweetwaters!
Masai Mara was also amazing! To witness the migration was something special we will never forget.
Last but not the least – our guide Joshua – the best guide in the world! He really did his best to satisfy all our requirements and always with a smile! He was so enthusiastic about his job and never shown a sign of impatience with all our questions! Please will you convey our utter and sincere thanks to him Hannah and tell him we will never forget him!
But overall we had a great time Hannah and thank you so much for planning us a tour of a lifetime!
I will definetly recommend Trevaron Tours to all my friends and relatives!
Be good and thank you once again……
