My Travel Recommendations

I'd love to inspire you with my travel recommendations. From authentic safari camps in the heart of the iconic Masai Mara to private, family-friendly Kenya safaris, here are my favourites.

 

  • Family Kenya's Samburu & Masai Mara

    9 nights Kenya's Samburu & Mara Family Villas

    Location: Kenya - Samburu, Kenya - Nairobi, Kenya - Mount Kenya, Kenya - Masai Mara
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "It’s no secret that these eco lodges have a reputation for absolute client delight. Adventure, explore, learn, have fun - tons of great activities are on offer from warrior programs to wildlife. In between spotting wildlife relax in the privacy of your spacious villa or take full advantage of the pampering offered at the spa."

One of our top recommendations in the Serengeti."

Africa Safari Expert

Africa is undoubtedly the most magnetic place to visit - the question will always be: when will I return?

Read what our Travellers have to say

Our family just got back from Tanzania and thanks to Lauren Johansson of Go2Africa we had the most incredible experience. Lauren was very knowledgable and put together an outstanding itinerary for us. She arranged for local tour operator Tanzania DMC to take us on tours of Tarangire National Park; Lake Manyara; Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.

Lauren also picked the most beautiful locations for us to stay at - Maramboi Tented Lodge in Tarangire; Kati Kati Tented Camp in the Serengeti; and the Serena Hotel in Ngorongoro. Best of all was the African Amini Maasai Lodge on Mombella Rd, near Moshi. We are very grateful to her for making such great arrangements for us. Lauren made sure that everything when smoothly, and all we had left to do was enjoy our trip. You can really trust her recommendations, you won't be disappointed.

Lauren also demonstrated superb professionalism - when we wanted to change one of the activities at the very last minute, she was flexible and incredibly responsive. She will respond to your emails very promptly. We highly recommend using Go2Africa and Lauren Johansson as tour agents.
