Female elephants stay with the herd for their entire lives meaning a matriarch acts as a grandmother and/or mother to most of the herd members that include several generations of female relatives (aunts, sisters and cousins).

The Maasai (or Masai) people are an East African tribe who today principally occupy the territory of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, and who speak the language of the same name. The Nilo-Saharan Maasai migrated southwards to that region in the 16/17th centuries CE, and they thrived thanks to their skills in animal husbandry, especially the herding of cattle. Maasai warriors are particularly famous for their height, stamina, and striking red hair and their success in warfare brought them domination of the Rift Valley grasslands.

Ben Rich is a very good guide. Open, interested and talkative. The excursion was very informative and entertaining. The museum visits (Nairobi National Museum and Railway Museum) are OK, but the explanations are very detailed. Visiting the market requires a lot of stamina, because everyone wants to sell something (“only look, give two minutes for my shop”). A highlight was the viewing platform on the old congress building. The trip was well worth it!

Ben and his driver, Eric, went out of their way to show us the highlights of Nairobi. The museum and snake park were very interesting. Our guide in the snake park provided a "hands on" experience. The view from the roof of the conference center was great. We did the tour on a Sunday afternoon, so most of the market stalls were closed.

An incredible private tour on our first day of our trip to Kenya. We had a private tour with Isaac who went out of his way to consistently ensure we saw as many animals as possible, with the best views - even getting us within 10 metres of a male lion, with no other cars around. Cannot recommend enough!

It was a really good experience. The guide was kind and professional. We learned a lot things about Nairobi as we walked around with him. He also helped us buy souvenirs when we were at the city market.

The city tour was very interesting and the guide, Ben, really nice!
