We've been on two separate tours with OTA. First we went to Sweetwaters Tented Camp in Ol Pejeta Conservancy. We had a great trip, Francis was a very knowledgeable guide and everything was taken care of. And they were absolutely the cheapest offer we got for the exact same trip.

Second time we went to Lake Naivasha and stayed at Simba lodges. Again OTA was the cheapest. This time we had Tracey as our guide. She was super helpful and made sure we had a great trip.
