We returned from Ukunda, Nomads yesterday. It was one my best holidays. the hotel was beautiful and the room was comfortable and right at the sea view.
Many thanks for arranging the trip. I look forward to doing more trips with travel shoppe.
I wish to express my gratitude to you for arranging the trip to Mombasa. My parents were very happy and you can be sure we shall do this again.
A huge thumbs up from all of us. We thoroughly enjoyed Mara Engai and Masai Mara and especially our friends John and Dianne Aaron who were visiting Kenya and going on safari for the first time. Although it was my first and I don't have anything similar with which to compare, I don't see how much more could have been done to accommodate us and to make us feel so very special. It was a great choice.
I got back today from the Elementaita Serena camp. Everything went very well indeed. The trip to and from was fantastic and the driver is very professional to say the least. The stay at the camp was very very nice, everything about the camp is marvellous. I thank the Travel Shoppe for enabling me to have such a fulfilling experience and you also for bearing with me during the period of arranging for the trip.
Thanks a lot for a very well organized tour. Everything went very well and we and our guests really enjoyed every moment.
Special thanks to Mr. Joseph also who made extra efforts to ensure that tour was enjoyable for everyone.
It was pleasure dealing with your company and I will have no hesitation in doing the same in future and recommending to others.
Thanks and Best RegardsAnil Chopra
Dear Lucy,Our trip was brilliant! The lodge, the staff, the food and the game drives were all outstanding. You were correct that the location in the Mara Triangle was a big advantage because almost all the other visitors were on the East side of the river which meant that whenever we saw interesting game there were no other vehicles; for example we saw this Cheetah alone and later spent 10 minutes watching 3 rhino alone before another vehicle (which had been alerted by our guide) arrived.I do not know if you planned it but we were the only guests in the lodge (although it will be full by the middle of February) and so had personal attention from all the staff. Another bonus (probably not arranged by you!) was heavy rain at night which turned the grass green and brought out all the animals.Thank you very much for recommending and arranging an exceptional enjoyable tour.best wishes.Nigel
Thank you Lucy for your mail.
The trip to Amboseli was smooth. The driver guide was very cooperative. He kept time on the first day and we were able to make it for lunch at the hotel.
The game drives were just great. We were privileged to see plenty of animals and birds.
The accommodation at Oltukai was good. W can't complain.
We will definitely consider Travelshoppe when we wish to travel next.
Happy new year! The trip was fantastic for me and my family.
Your contact in Dubai Ms Marzeena, was always at hand readily to sort and iron out all the small hiccups along the way.
In a nutshell we were satisfied with the holiday experience.
Thank you for your good and honest services.
Sorry could not email you earlier as have been busy at work lately.
A big thank you to you for arranging the best possible trip for us, we had a lot of fun. We carried back home lots and lots of memories from africa. This would not have been possible without you and your valuable inputs for the itinerary and of course Joseph. A big thank you to him too for making all the possible efforts to make sure we saw all the animals in huge numbers.
Again a big thank you, it has been an experience that none of us will ever forget.
I would like to thank you very much for your service and help in purchasing our airline tickets to and back from Africa. We just returned back from an amazing vacation. You were extremely helpful throughout our vacation planning. We really appreciate all your help and will definitely keep you in mind while planning our future vacations.
Thanks again for your excellent customer service.
All done and very well received!
Thank you very much for all your assistance. I am very impressed with the professional and delightful service!
Well done to you and your team!
I assure you my continued support.
This is a quick note to say thank you for your excellent customer service during my recent trip.
You were patient , quick to give feedback and communicated clearly which is very important for any customer.
I am back in NBO safely and look forward to planning my Next trip with travel shoppe through you.
Have a good day.
Travelshoppe has been and is extremely helpful in the management of professional trips for our company. We have been using them for the last 4 years, and customer service has always been good, responsive, and fares are always competitive. I can only recommend Travelshoppe for trip planning.
Thanks a lot,
Director, East Africa Operations
Good morning Chris.
I hope this finds you well. We went to Enashipai over the weekend and we had a fantastic stay.
We were received very well and we were wowed by the entire experience.
May I once again express my gratitude for your thoughtfulness and generosity.
May God bless you and the entire travelshoppe family.
We will always support you.
Just a note to say thank you for all the wonderful arrangements you made for our trip to Masai Mara.
Your guide, Joseph was very helpful and made our trip very comfortable and enjoyable along the road trip.
Our stay at Interpids Camp was comfortable & our safari guide, Joseph Kangethe Mugwe (JK) made our visit to the Masai Mara most memorable.
Just wanted to share some photos with you on our trip.
Hope to be back in Kenya again one day.
Once again, thank you.
Our trip was great... thank you for coordinating a well thought out itinerary. Aside from the first day when the driver was late (so our day was very rushed), everything else went very smoothly.
The hotel was good (though their breakfast monotonous- the menu didn't change once the entire week) located in a central place. I particularly enjoyed the desert safari and dhow cruise dinner; Ferari World was also a great hit! All the activities gave us an opportunity to see the sights and sounds of the place...though next time we will definitely have Burj Khalifa tour in the itinerary.
Tendai was unwell for a few days with a throat infection and a nasty fever- Marzeena referred us to a doctor who treated him and he's now better. Perhaps he reacted to the AC and change in weather....
Unfortunately, KQ pulled a fast one on us on the return trip...we ended up leaving after 1pm instead of 6.55am 😣 and they didn't have a baby meal.
Otherwise, everything went well. We appreciate your concern and attention to detail. Definitely reason to refer you to friends and have you plan our next holiday.
Thank you for the excellent organisation of the trip. I totally agree with Pravin's comments.
Regretfully, we have arrived back after such a wonderful time in Kenya.
Your arrangements for the Safari and the events in Nairobi were superb and we did not encounter
any major problems throughout our stay.
Floyd deserves a special mention for ensuring that everyone's needs and demands were fulfilled!
Needless to say that we will recommend you highly to everyone who wishes to travel to Kenya.

Thank you for the message. However, it is us who should be thanking you, not only for the lovely welcome we received in Kenya but also for the care and attention we received during the course of our visit.
We had a wonderful trip! Everyone loved it, especially the kids – as you know we had some concerns in this respect – but it all worked out so well
We are still coming off “cloud Kenya” and slowly getting back to reality and to sorting the photos etc – we will definitely share for posting.
Best wishes and warm regards from all of us.

The trip was great :)
Many thanks for your email. We are now back in London and will cherish our memories in Kenya for a long time. You guys were fantastic and really made this trip special for us.
We can’t thank you enough for taking care of us in Kenya. It was truly an amazing experience, especially the Bush Farewell dinner. Joseph is a very good guide and driver and we really appreciated his efforts to make our trip memorable. Please give him our regards.
We look forward to visit Africa soon and explore the continent. Both Shobha and I felt so much at home and reminded of us India. We will be touch for our next trip.
Dear Palvi, just a brief note to thank you for organizing us the extraordinary safari !!! I will share your name with my friends to fully recommend you. Thank you.

Thank you for your email. My wife and I had a wonderful time at Ashnil. The service at Ashnil was impeccable and Joseph gave our game drives a memorable touch, always tracking animals ahead of the other teams.
The dinner on the last night is still fresh in our minds, crowned with a surprise farewell cake.
We enjoyed the trip to the masai village and we had an amazing insight into their culture.
Oooh and yes Joseph made sure we tracked most of the animals. That is from the hyenas, Foxes, to lions,hippos,Thompson gazelles,topis,impala,buffaloes,warthog, leopards and cheetahs.
The staff at Ashnil were so warm and friendly our mealtimes were always so much fun.
In short, we couldn’t have had a better honeymoon. Thank you very much.

Just to let you know we’re having a wonderful time in Italy with Giorgio. We’ve had an amazing 4 days right from the first day. We’ve seen so much of Rome the “Giorgio way” with Giorgio riding his moped ahead of us & Kinuthia driving his little fiat! Early this morning we set off for Naples & Capri & teamed up with Shirley & Lucy who are travel agents from the US whom Giorgio was taking to Capri for a day tour & who apparently know you & sent their greetings to you!
Giorgio helped us with all the other bookings & we’ve got all our train tickets & accommodation done for Florence, Pisa, Milan & Venice staying 2 nights in each city. We stay for one more day in Rome & leave on Saturday morning & we’ll also spend our final 2 nights back at Giorgio’s – he’s been an amazing host & has so much energy – can’t believe he’s 78!
Your idea was the best ever. Thank you so much!
Hope you are all fine & love to your family.
Place Visited: Italy – July
we arrived home safely and are missing Kenya and Masai Mara already.
Thank you for all your help and for the great opportunity to visit one of the world’s best. WE had a great time and
want to come back – this time we should meet up with you as well.

Many thanks for your recommendation for us to do our brief holiday at Sweetwaters Tented Camp. Thank you to you and Seema for the prompt arrangements at such short notice!
The experience from my family was simply awesome….excellent customer service, personalized, visible leadership….in short, true value for money! To cap it all, we even saw lions from our tent!…. a little scary but exciting at the same time!
I would recommend Sweetwaters to any person who seeks to be at home away from home! Similarly, I will not be going anywhere else for holiday packages! Travelshoppe it is!
With best regards,

Jus to say a really BIG thank you to you and all at Travelshoppe for making our trip to Kenya so memorable!. We all had a great time, and also enjoyed meeting two of you. Besides Serian, Samburu was really nice!
Also, Nikheel had a great six week “internship” with Alex Walker at Serian. Rekha and I feel that he has learnt so much from the experience both about life and about himself. We are really grateful to you for finding this opportunity for him. As he said himself, HE WILL BE BACK, next year.
We appreciated the speed and efficiency with which the travel delay from Samburu to Malindi was resolved as was the move from Scorpio to Driftwood. I intend to write a “piece” about the “Fawlty Towers of Kenya” on my blog in the next week or two!
Visited: Amboseli, Samburu, Masai Mara and Malindi
We recently got back from our wonderful trip.
What a great experience!
We wanted to thank you very much because from the begining of this project we felt that we were in the best hands. And we were right. Everything was great, and we have the best memories of people and places that will always stay with each one of us. Very kind regards, Carolina.

As expected the note confirming our arrival, in good shape and with luggage in Madrid. No setback or incident!! Brief happiness.
Thanks again for this trip has allowed us, for a first approach of Black Africa, to regale us and spend a wonderful vacation with a little taste of "back- y ".... Send thanks to Willy, who was an attentive and perfect throughout the 10 days guide.

Places visited: Masai Mara, Nanyuki, Magadi, Tanzania, South Africa and Victoria Falls
We reached home safe and sound and very jet lagged.
I don't know how to thank you and Travel shoppe for our amazing trip. From start to finish it was just incredible. You guys really went out of your way to ensure that this was a trip of a lifetime ! The boys, my husband and I had the most wonderful time. Vacations with adult children can be challenging, but this was perfect.
