We booked through Thomson which uses Pollmans as their local agent. The high spot of the week trip to Shaba, Nakuru and Maasia was our driver William (Willy). He seemed to know everything about the animals and even geology.

Could not fault Pollmans. From Day 1 and the next 2weeks was everything we could have hoped for. From the accommodations, food, friendliness of our superb drivers, Anderson and Hassan and the amazing Safaris. It was all just magnificent. Would definitely use them again
