WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

For all of us at Ker & Downey, the greatest proof that we are still “getting it right” is hearing it from our guests. When you get back home, we would love to hear what you thought of your safari -€“ the best bits, and any that weren’€™t so good -€“ so that we can keep improving our service. Here are some recent comments that make us feel very proud.

″We were hosted in the finest style imaginable″

“We camped in an exclusive game area, with a camp crew of twelve who laughed and sang all day… We were hosted in the finest style imaginable – hot showers, iced sundowners, amazing meals and super-comfortable enormous tents. It hardly felt like camping. When we left, the crew broke camp and moved it to the next location. The bush was left exactly as it had been before”

– Sandy and Chuck Drimal, on safari with James Robertson, 1999

″A K&D safari always exceeds expectations″

“This is my fourth safari with David, and it always exceeds expectations.”

Fiona Raissig, on safari with Dave Simpson, 2012

″Our safari was truly amazing and memorable″

“Sam introduced us to so many warm and interesting Kenyans, who shared their love for the country with us. His love for Kenya, its people and wildlife comes through in all that he does, and made our safari truly amazing and memorable!”

″We loved sharing their beautiful respect for this amazing place″

“Sam clearly has an intense love of Africa and its wildlife. He has an uncanny ability to find lions, leopards and cheetahs and, most importantly, he is extremely careful not to disturb or intrude on the animals in any way. We loved sharing Sam’s beautiful respect for this amazing place!”

Lanna McCarthy, on safari with Sam Stogdale, 2015

″We have made special new friends, and a lifetime of memories″

“I can’t imagine – from beginning to end – one detail overlooked. I feel we have made special new friends, as well as a lifetime of memories.”

Norma and Kimo Carney, on safari with Tim Melesi, 2013

″Your dedication, knowledge and attitudes truly made the difference″

“It was a trip our family will never forget. Your dedication, knowledge and excellent attitudes truly made the difference… When I asked the kids what they liked the most, their top answer was ‘the friendship we made with James, Abigail and Paolo’. Thank you for sharing so much with us!”

Juan Segura, on safari with James Robertson and Paolo Parazzi, 2015

″The best memory we will take away is the camaraderie we shared″

“The best memory we will take away is the camaraderie we all shared with your wonderful team. Sam and Paolo brought so much to the group with their knowledge of wildlife, their enthusiasm and sense of fun – not to mention their patience with little pre-teen girls!”

Tobey and John Taylor, on safari with James Robertson, Sam Stogdale and Paolo Parazzi, 2014

″The crew was awesome, quietly anticipating our every need″

“We need another word than ‘thank you’ to properly express our gratitude for all you have done for us. From the smallest kindness to the biggest surprises and adventures in and out of camp, the crew that Tim has put together is awesome, quietly anticipating our every need…”
