Travelled on Thorn Tree African safari with a beach stay at Neptune Pwani Beach Resort Zanzibar Just a note to say a very big thank you for all the help you gave arranging our fabulous holiday. I can't tell you how good it was, from being picked up at the airport we were taken such good care of. Our driver Simon who we had for the whole Safari time could not have been nicer and we were lucky enough to see four of the big five amongst many other wonderful sights. We had a super boat trip on the way where Simon knew some people and saw African Fish eagles and hippos and went walking amongst zebra and various other animals. The transfer to the Holiday Inn was good and then we were in Zanzibar, amazing, the Hotel is absolutely beautiful, the staff incredibly friendly and helpful and the food could not have been better- there was something for our two vegetarians and our picky son at every meal. I would like to tell you that Scuba do did two great days diving for us and the boys both snorkelled on one of the days- lunch provided by them- it is a great day out. We also did Safariblue- day trip to a desert island for snorkelling and then an amazing fish bbq then fruit tasting, trip was on a dhow and we saw dolphins on the way back. I really recommend the Pwani Beach Hotel, our accomodation was really lovely and although initially they had allocated the kids a double and single bed, as soon as we said we would like three singles it was arranged. Once again many thanks for all your help, it was the most fantastic big family holiday for us and we have so many wonderful memories to keep from it. Many thanks Rachel

Hi Vicky, We're well and truly back from Kenya, unfortunately!!! Where to begin??? Firstly, we want to say a huge thank you to you... the advice and holiday arrangements you made for us were down to a tee. Somak were there waiting to show us where to go at Nairobi airport and there again at Mombasa to take us to the Indian Ocean Beach Resort. Smashing room at the hotel with lovely sea view. There was only about 20% occupancy during the whole time we were there (brilliant for us) and everyone was so friendly and courteous and the grounds were immaculate. Also, not too much hassle from the beachboys once they realised we weren't interested. But they do try anything to get your attention. The Safari was out if this world and as it was 'rainy' season we were the only 2!!!! Ali Fundhi, our guide, went over and beyond to ensure we had a great time and see everything there was to see. His knowledge is phenomonal and is a great guy. The tent at Asnil was fantastic too. We got a free upgrade to a beachfront room on our return at the hotel... if you don't ask!!! The fact that we were booked through Somak was the decider for giving us this!!! So all in all, the trip of a lifetime, beating every expectation, Thank you again Vicky, Shelley and Gary
