Shelley C / Teresa L – Abbotsford, B.C. | Kenya & Tanzania | Nov-Dec 2021
My sister and I would like to thank Jen for all her hard work on our behalf to ensure our dream trip to Kenya and Tanzania went off without a hitch. Even with the challenge of ever-changing COVID requirements, our trip surpassed our already high expectations. The accommodations were top-notch; the itinerary was well thought out and suited our pace, and our guide, Godwin, was exceptional. Thanks to his amazing ability to spot wildlife, we saw the Big Five and a number of other rare sights including a kudu, two lions mating and a cheetah chase and catch a gazelle as her three juvenile cubs were practicing their hunting skills on wildebeest nearby, to name just a few. We were also fortunate to see the annual migration – a sight we will never forget.
We originally planned our trip for the spring of 2020 but were forced to cancel due to COVID restrictions and rebooked for the spring of 2021, but had to cancel again for the same reasons. Finally, we were able to go in November 2021. Throughout this long process Jen and Heritage Safaris were very understanding and accommodating. Every detail was considered, even down to the lovely bottle of complementary wine we received upon arrival at Mawengina Tented camp and the scheduling of our COVID PCR tests while in the central Serengeti two days prior to our departure for home. All in all it was a spectacular trip and Africa will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
