Safari and campsite was an excellent and once in a lifetime experience
Overall everything in Kenya was wonderful, impressive wildlife, beautiful scenery, good weather, nice accommodations, good food, very friendly safari guide. The only downturn is that traffic is bad and hectic.

Great Safari with Mufasa!
I personally did not arrange this Safari in Kenya for myself, but this was a gift that my wife and I gave to our parents after our marriage.
I dealt and agreed all details with Lewis from Mufasa: he was super professional and precise. I asked lots of questions and made some adjustments to the original plan he proposed me: everything has been friendly and professionally agreed before our parents' departure. Lewis arranged also to reserve an Italian-speaker guide for the whole trip! That was a great added value to our parents trip.
The Safari itself was class, according to our parents' feedback! Our parents and the guide got along very well since the beginning and the trip plan has been carefully respected. We arranged a 10-days safari across Amboseli NP, Aberdare, Samburu NP, Lake Nakuru NP and Maasai Mara NP. Lots of wildlife has been spotted (elephants, rhynos, giraffes, lions and cheetas feasting around fresh carcasses, despite no leopard shown during the 10 days). Weather was great and accomodations were above expectations, considering a mid-sized budget.
I would then reccomend:
- a safari in Kenya in February across the 5 parks
- Mufasa as a trusted Safari company for your Safari.

Amazing experience, would recommend Explorer Kenya
Was a little sceptical when booking this trip but everything organised was perfect. We decided to go for the 4x4 private tour. Highly recommend a 4x4 so you dont get stuck in any ditches.
We started in Nairobi then onto Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Amboseli, Tsavo west, Tsavo east then ended at Mombasa beach.
The road trip was very long but each park offered very different scenery and animals. So if you dont mind long car journeys then this would be a great trip.
Masai mara was my favourite park as we saw the most range of wildlife along with stepping into the Serengeti (as they boarder eachother). Second was Amboseli as you get to see amazing elephants and the view of Mount Kilimanjaro was spectacular! Tsavo east was very much like the Masai mara.
Our tour guide Simon was very knowledgeable and enjoyed his company. He was very flexible in what we wanted to see and do. 5* to his driving and photography skills! Always making sure we got the best photos of the animals and ensuring he is parked in the right angle for us to capture every moment. Thank you!!
Kenya is beautiful and highly recommend going on a safari with Explorer Kenya.

Amazing! so much wildlife
We used Tekko Tours and had an amazing experience. Our drive, Stephen, was fabulous and helped us locate so many big cats! I would definitely recommend a trip to Kenya!

A wonderful destination and an exceptional safari. Many thanks for our guide Toyawho e
Many thanks for our guide Toyawho enabled us to realize our dream of seeing the big five.
The lodges were great and well located. The tour program was perfect and we were able to observe the animals at different times of the day.
We are a family with three children, one of whom is 5 years old and the pace was very good. In addition, the vehicle allowed us to see the animals. A big thank-you

Trip of a life time
Have wanted to go on a safari since a child, now in fifties. So with Bluerange Safaris went for 8 days and 7 nights which did not disappoint. Managed to see much wildlife, including big five, also great landscape for photos. Kenya is amazing, had a great time.
Thanks to all, especially the drivers.

We had a wonderful time and Jonathan was a very knowledgeable guide - making sure we saw all of the Big 5 and loads more. The highlight was seeing 6 lion cubs walking past your truck!
Ashnil was great, lovely staff and no shortage of good food! The tents were brilliant with a great pool and view of Hippos and crocs in the river.
Absolutely Incredible! Once in a lifetime journey.
Kenya is a stunning country. The landscape is beautiful filled to the brim with every animal you could hope to see on safari. We had tremendous weather and saw lions, leopards, elephants, zebras, giraffes etc. The people were very friendly and our guide through Tazama holidays David was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

Amazing, exciting experience
We went through all the emotions in Kenya. We went from Nairobi to Masai Mara to Mombasa. In Nairobi we visited the Giraffe and Elephants parks and they were great. We also went to the great Rift Valley and the view was breathtaking. We did a boat ride to see the hippos which was scary with them in the water. Food was delicious and fresh. A lot of fresh seafood, fruit and vegetables. Ok the Masai Mara was crazy and wonderful. We were supposed to stay at the illekalani lodge but this lodge was rained out so we stayed at Zebra Plains Resort. I am thrilled where we stayed. The rooms were big and very nice, the staff was very friendly and food was great. We actually got lost on a safari. We went to visit a Masai Village and a warrior said he had a short cut and we took it and got lost. We were stuck in the mud, and scared in the dark until about 11:30 at night on a safari. The rangers and search and rescue had to come and find us. Luckily Zebra Plains search and rescue team where the ones that came and found us and they didn’t have to. We where with a independent safari company but yet Zebra Plains sent there team out on top of the rangers. We greatly appreciate them for all they did. We did see all of the big five except the Rhino. The land was beautiful and the weather was great.
Lastly Mombasa beaches were gorgeous. We stayed at Sarova Whitesands and it was a great resort. The spa was out of this world. I highly recommend a spa day at this resort for everyone. We went to the orphanage and gave supplies which was heart breaking and humbling. We arrived back in states March 5th and Africa was everything we could ask for. We can’t wait to return.
