Culsans gave me an insight into the world of the conservation, sustainable travel, but most lovingly, into the wonderful Kenyan culture and people. During every step of the trip I was repeatedly impressed and amazed by the insider opportunities Culsans has been able to offer, and I could not have asked for greater and more inspiring people (particularly Florence and Francis) to have been there with us. Every day was a jaw dropping experience, topped off with sundowners and card games in the Kenyan bush – can you really think of anything more magical?! I couldn’t have asked for better time than my trip with Culsans; it exceeded my every expectation 100 times over, and would never hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
What was your funniest moment?
Funniest/most unbelievable moment? Definitely the lions on the tree!
It was our last night out in the conservancies, and Kate wanted to show us her favourite sundowner spot. We were heading back in the jeep, rushing for sunset, when suddenly someone shouted 'lion on the tree!' This was a pretty amazing sighting, so naturally we drove towards its and watched for as long as we could without completely missing the sunset. After After 15 minutes or so, we drove off in a rush, when no more than 50m away, someone else shouted 'lion on the tree!'. Nobody could believe it, and we were all laughing in amazement and disbelief at both this double sighing, but also at the horrible timing! Just on the opposite side of the track lay a lioness we hadn't noticed this whole time, lying on a fallen tree. It was amazing, and by this point these sightings were too exciting to miss, meaning we had to delay our sundowner to a sunriser. At which point, the lioness got up, walked up to the other lioness, and lay with her on the first tree. We spent the rest of the evening watching these beautiful lionesses, until nighttime fell and they slunk off into the distance to hunt.
