We booked our honeymoon in Kenya with Andy and the Grown Up Travel company. The remit we gave was a week of safari adventure followed by some time relaxing in solitude on the beach. Andy delivered and then some! We had the most amazing week on safari. Andy's recommendations and guidance on where was best for our budget and the experience we wanted was spot on We would 100% recommend Andy to family and friends who want to go on an African adventure!
