7 days classic safari with africancircuitsafaris

We had a fantastic trip in kenya. The lodges of the 7 days classic safaris are very great. Paul (the manager) was helpfull. We no had problems. Japhit, our private driver, was excellent, he found all the animals. We were a little bit scared to book a safari with an unknow operator. But  everything was respected, lodges, program, meals. The only very little disapointement is that the water was never included in the lodges (as writted in program) but is wasn't a big problem. Thanks Paul and Japhit, we hope to come back again...
