Jumbo. This journey...overwhelmingly wonderful
Flawless, exciting, rewarding. From the moment we step outside of the Nairobi Airport we were under the protective canopy of our hosts. We sat in modified Land cruisers, rumbled over Savannahs, grasslands, lava fields to watch and absorb every African mammal (and more) that we could see. Eyes first, camera second. Cheli and Peacock have implemented a masterful safari.
We dare not to pick a favourite camp, as each camp is distinctly different, yet continuity is normality within the camps. Game drives, meals times and genuine thoughtfulness are the common thread.
Tortilis is unique. The open-aired covered lounge overlooks a man made watering hole, outside the protective fence. Kilimanjaro is the setting of this background that sees baboons, zebras, elephants, marabou cranes, and more drawing a drink from the pond. Yes, a small walk up from your luxurious accommodation, the wander is full of birds, plants, flowers, certainly a moment to yourself to explore the ground beneath your feet.
The food. We did not anticipate the exceptional quality of meals. We came to see the Savannahs and wildlife. African food is very simple and not palatable to most tourists, Cheli and Peacock have run with the Italian theme, and it is suburb.
Andreas and Manuela, our hosts for Tortilis are full of life. They too are travelers and understand the needs of every individual.
We cannot stress the importance of have a company like Cheli and Peacock pull together a trip of a lifetime. You can simply don your tourist garb, turn off your everyday life and follow your dreams. Plan Tortilis to be part of your African Safari advenature. Have Cheli and Peacock pull together the entire journey, you will be pining to go back to Africa.
