Lake Nakuru & Massai Mara
Reviewed January 30, 2012
My wife and me spent 4 days at Lake Nakuru and
Maasai Mara Sopa lodges with Cruseiro.
The pick up/drop off from NBO airport.
I like the concept when Cruseiro gives you the mini-bus
with a driver who is also a very good guide and who always
stays with you during your Safari. The driver/guide is
absolutely flexible for you to get maximum pleasure
from your trip. The mini-bus hasn't been very comfortable
but nearly all Kenyan safari operators use this type of
Toyota vans as it's realistically very reasonable for Kenyan roads.
The both lodges were not luxury but quite good.
Lake Nakuru lodge has a very picturesque location.
We could watch rhinos fighting in 20 meters from our
lodge window. Maasai Sopa although had much better
kitchen. The only negative impression was extremely
noisy neighborhood - Chinese in lake Nakuru and
north American in Maasai Sopa.
Special thanks to our very experienced guide and
driver Simon. We enjoyed his gentleman manners
and good sence of humor. Simon did his best to
please us up to the end of the trip. Besides, Simon
has a very good feeling of where to go to see the
best of the wild life. Many thanks to Andrew and
Claudia as well. It was a great experience for us !
