1 review for East Africa Migration Discoverer – 15 Day – Best of Kenya & Tanzania

  1. Lynx Calgary

    Absolutely amazing!! Emmanuel Macha was an excellent guide in Tanzania He was extremely good at finding game and was so accommodating to our needs and wishes. He was always in good humor, friendly and yet very professional. His knowledge of the animals, birds ,plants and trees was incredible and if he couldn’t answer a question he would try to find the answer for us and most often he did. He worked so hard in trying to find us game and never complained yet he drove long hours and every day the vehicle was cleaned for us. His integrity, honesty, good sense of humor, fun loving attitude and guiding ability made my safari outstanding. Thank you Emmanuel! I must also commend Simon (last name?) who toured us through Kenya who was also of the same character and again contributed to my enjoyment of the tour. Simon thank you so much for all your tolerance to rough roads ,flat tires, and sometimes grouchy clients. You were so calm and understanding and did your very best to find us game and things of interest. You were a great guide! The vehicles provided by Jenman were great and allowed everyone equal viewing ability and comfort.Safety was always the number one concern for both people and the animals. I really appreciated the concern for the animals well being and following the park rules. Definitely recommend Jenman safaris.
