    Kenya surprised me pleasantly! All the frames seen in National Geographic were happening right in front of my eyes. The landscape, splendid animals and colourful birds were a delight to watch and experience. The sightings of Lion carrying Wildebeest for breakfast for its cubs were unforgettable. The hotels and resorts were awesome and the food (esp dessert section) was delicious. I will cherish this trip forever! Riti was a cool and calm buddy (her usual self) and she made sure we were all comfortable. Excellent buddy to travel with!

    Dear WOW, Thank you for facilitating the beautiful trip to Kenya. The small group of WOW travelers were in as much harmony as the different animals that coexisted in n the Masai Mara grasslands. Its not easy to surprise and overwhelm a bunch of seasoned ladies but the abundance of Kenyan wildlife, the warmth of the locals and the quality of the hotels managed to enthrall us. Riti, Thank you for being a WOW buddy in the true sense. Your quiet and gracious charm made us feel like you were just a fellow traveler.
