    David has his ways of making trip a wonderful memory. He is really good in organizing trips with a lot of support and decent participation. We went to Masai Mara although off season but we could manage to see all mentioned below;

    We took a safari to Samburu, Nakuru and Masai Mara for seven days. David was outstanding. Hats off. Wealth of information about animals, knowledge of the parks, excellent driving and time with our kids. We recommend him as the best guide. We saw almost everything.  Big 5 and Wildebeests migration.
