  • Mary B. — September 22, 2017 — Africa

    Amazing trip! We saw more animals than we thought possible! The gorilla trek was amazing, and our guides Chris at Kichwas Tembo and Steven for the rest of the trip were very informative and accommodating. Loved the accommodations, especially Mountain Village Lodge, Kichwa Tembo, Kitela Lodge, and Tree Tops. Each was special in its own way. Thank you for helping us plan a trip of a lifetime!

  • Robert M — August 22, 2017 — Africa

    It was simply an amazing trip! Our guide and driver were the best. Everything went smoothly and they made life very easy for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Kensington to anyone. Hotels were unique and exceeded expectations. Thank you for the significant room upgrade at the 4 Seasons on our last night. That was a huge surprise!

  • Mike Desmarais — July 20, 2017 — Africa

    Went on a tour in Morocco with Kensington tours. We visited the cities of Casablanca, Tangier & Chefchaouen and had a wonderful time. Our guide (Mohammed Salmi) and driver (Eunice) were absolutely excellent and very professional. Mohammed was very knowledgeable regarding the cities and places we visited. Mohammed spoke very good English and was easy to talk with and a pleasure to be with for the 6 days we were in Morocco. We could not have asked for a better guide and/or driver during our time in Morocco. Our vehicle was a newer model Mercedes van that was very comfortable to be in for the long drives we had between cities, and our hotels were much better than expected.

  • Misty N — August 22, 2017 — Africa

    This was our 4th Kensington Trip (second to South Africa), I cannot say enough about Andrew Drummond and his ability to put a PERFECT trip together. I trust him completely and would plan trips with him over and over. Now looking at a trip to Peru and yes, we are talking to a professional at Kensington.

  • Elizabeth E — February 07, 2017 — Africa

    Both our guides from Rwanda to Tanzania were the best. Everything was FLAWLESS, the guides, transportation, the accommodations, the food, the safaris, etc. We actually went to the villagers home and met the kids who performed their native dance for us. It really was an emotional connection that was one of the highlights of the whole trip for us. Thanks so much for putting this all together for us!

  • Katie M. — August 10, 2016 — Africa
