I went with a group of 4 to celebrate my mother’s 60th birthday. We had a wonderful experience with Earthlife Expeditions!!
To book the trip, I reached out to 5+ agencies in the area, and Caudence from Earthlife was the most responsive and helpful. She was flexible in our travel arrangements and was able allow us to see everything in a short period of time. She was also very helpful in providing different ways to flex on price and have options to upgrade/save some money. In general, felt the booking process was very straightforward, honest, and informative.
For the actual safari, our guide was Jeff, and he was AWESOME! Very knowledgeable about the history, geography, and animals in the region. Also, just amazing at spotting animals and getting us positioned to take great photos – he has the craziest eagle eyes and can see a tiny spec of an animal that is half a mile away. He is able to crack jokes to keep everyone laughing and then also know when we’re all tired and give us some time to nap and quietly appreciate the nature. He went out of a way to give us a WOW experience, even arranging a last minute birthday cake in the bush for my mother, something that she will never forget.
I would 100% recommend Earthlife and Jeff! We went in August for the Great Migration, but will have to go back for the calving season in February, which is supposed to have more “action”, if you were debating the two!
