This is our 3rd trip to Africa and as usual the people are really great and nothing is too much trouble. We couldn't fault the staff or hotel and the food and drinks were always first class with a good variety.

It was soon after the post election troubles when tourists were deserting Kenya. The welcome was very friendly at this newly built hotel next to Robinson Baobab. Check in was swift and we were soon in the infinity pool. The beach was clean, safe and very inviting. The choice of food at all meal times was wide. All hotel staff...

I have to write haveing seen a comment from John! I'm not sure from John's comments that he was dealing with the Julius that everybody else knows or even if this comment is legitimate. Julius only asks for a small deposit prior to travelling and the rest is payable upon return. I travelled to Kenya on 5 Jun and booked...

Stayed at Kole Kole wing for 2 weeks in March. Stunning location and excellent facilities. Service and staff amazing. Diani Beach and the warm Indian Ocean are what dreams are made of. Whilst there, take the time to book a safari. We used JT Safaris to fly to the Masai Mara for 4 days / 3 nights, inclusive of a...
