Acacia trees dot a vast horizon and flamingos cast a pink mirage on Lake Manyara National Park. The Masai Mara's traditional welcome transports you to another world of drumbeats, chants and dance.

Traveling to East Africa has been a long awaited dream for me. Last November, I was finally able to realize my dream by going on Friendly Planet's 2 week jeep safari to Kenya and Tanzania. The trip was organized locally by Vintage Africa. I cannot sing enough praises for Vintage Africa, and especially our driver guide in Kenya, James Mungai. James was an extremely knowledgeable and attentive guide. His ability to intelligently answer all of our sometimes unusual questions and spot wildlife from miles away never ceased to amaze us. James went out of his way to accommodate our needs and was always patient with all our requests, from stopping to photograph every sunset and tree cluster to positioning his vehicle for the perfect photo opportunity. As a seasoned traveler, I can truly say that this trip has been one of my favorites and having James as our guide contributed to making it so memorable. I can only hope that my next group excursion will be as enjoyable and well organized.
We have just returned from our trip to Kenya and Tanzania and it was wonderful! The trip far exceeded my expectations and it has to be the best trip that I have taken in my years of travel. The accommodations were fantastic, guides were knowledgeable and the experience was one that I will never forget. Keep up the good work.
