Above and beyond
Above and beyond. Maria our agent was incredible. We sent Bench our budget, timeframe and what a very vague brief of what we would like to see. From the moment we connected with Bench, we knew we were in good hands. Every detail of our honeymoon was organised, our brief was matched and we didn't have to worry about a thing! We had the most incredible experiences in Kenya & Zanzibar and our honeymoon was truly once in the lifetime. The places we stayed, the food, the services and everything in between was 5 star +++Ms & Mrs Teasdale Destination: Kenya
Kenya Safari 2015
I travelled Nairobi, Lake Elementaita, Nakuru, Amboseli and Masai Mara with Bench in June of 2015 and it could not have been a more magical trip. Everything was planned with careful consideration and nothing was overlooked. Every single activity was amazing and offered up something new to the group; there was a lot to do, but the itinerary still allowed for changes and flexibility. The Bench staff were helpful, friendly and fun. I couldn't imagine traveling Kenya and Africa with a better company!Mel Evans Destination: Kenya
An amazing experience in Kenya with Bench!
I recently spent 8 days in Kenya with Bench International and the trip has to be one of the best things I have ever done. Bench were fantastic, the guides had excellent knowledge and taught us so much about the amazing Kenyan wildlife, the accommodation was perfect and the vehicle even had wifi for me to send pics to friends and family back home.
If you're thinking of booking a Kenyan holiday with Bench I highly recommend it!
