This was our first safari experience. We selected a budget safari and the company ensured that our eight days were filled with game drives and excursions. We saw the big five and so many other animals, we took well over 1500 pictures. The itinerary had to be flexible as we were on an eight-day safari and other members of our group were on a six. I would suggest that changes to the itinerary get communicated a bit better, we found out at a lunch break that we were being moved to another guide to complete our tour which was a bit of a surprise. Our two guides, Jackson and Eric were amazing. One thing we weren't prepared for was the amount of driving between the parks as we covered Masai Mara, Amboseli and Nakuru. It did give us a look at very different eco systems, Masai Mara was both green and a bit drought affected, Nakuru was very lush and Amboseli was very dry. The meals provided were very repetitive at all the accommodations. The eco camps were excellent accommodations, the hotels were not as comfortable and clean as the eco camps.

Textbook African safari
Overall rating
5/5

The sheer quantity of wildlife is what distinguishes Kenya (and Tanzania) from the rest of Africa. The option of visiting several parks (we did Amboseli, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and Hell's gate NP, and Maasai Mara), each with distinct features, in a relatively short amount of time means that you can easily spend a whole week or more on safari without getting bored. The friendly people top it all off.

A spectacular cornucopia of scenery and wildlife
Overall rating
5/5

We went on safari for 7 days (Fede Tours - Frederick is an amazing guide) and went through Amboseli, Masai Mara, and lake Nakuru. It was honestly an unbelievable experience - we saw more animals than we ever could have imagined and all set against a backdrop of stunning beauty (including seeing Kilimanjaro in the background). 10/10 would recommend and do again in a heartbeat. It was also great to understand some of the Masai culture - a great experience all round.

Also, Kenyan people are some of the friendliest I have ever met!

Kenya is a great East Africa experience. Being my first time on that side of the continent I found it’s diversity made it easy to indulge in everything. From the beautiful non tourist filled beaches in Mombasa to the vast rolling landscapes of the Maasai Mara and the nightlife of Nairobi. Whether you’re into ecotourism, cultural encounters or the highlife, there’s something for everyone. My next trip will be much more curated and quiet but if you’re a first time traveler to Kenya, I suggest try everything once, stay for a minimum of 10days then return again for what you enjoyed most.

The best place for first safari and watching predators
Overall rating
5/5

In the Masai Mara you can watch lions, cheetahs and, if fortunately, leopards. Of course, elephants and many other popular animals are much.
At Nakuru Park,you can watch Rhinos,which is rare in other parks.
I took 4D3N safari through these two parks and got to see all these animals.
In brief, you can see all BIG5s and another popular animals in these parks if you have one week.

Compared to Botswana where I've been, I had more chance to watch predators in the country,because driver had effort to seek them.
On the other hand, safari in the country is all arranged as start/end at Nairobi, also the security in this country is not as good as the Southern African country.

Therefore, if you have a specific goal to see the famous animals in the savannah, this is the country for you.

Trip of a lifetime! We CANNOT WAIT to go back to Kenya!
Overall rating
5/5

Kenya absolutely blew my our minds! We stayed at Governors Camp Masai Mara for 3 nights and did safari every single day we were there. Masai Mara is like heaven on earth—elephants, giraffes and zebras everywhere! We saw an entire pride of lions, lions mating, a leopard AND THE FAMOUS WILDEBEEST CROSSING ON MARA RIVER. Plus, we visited a Masai tribe which is something you definitely don't want to miss out on, it was so fun and very eye opening. All the Kenyans we met were extremely helpful and friendly and there wasn't a single time we felt unsafe on our entire trip. While staying in Nairobi at the beginning and end of our trip, we visited the Archive Museum and the National Museum of Kenya & Snake Park. Both were very interesting. After Masai we went to Lake Nakuru for a day safari where we saw rhinos—tons! Like 10 at one time. The safari at Nakuru was nice but not even close to the experience of Masai Mara (where you can go more off road). Also, depending on the time of year expect beautiful weather! It was warm during the day and cold at night—perfect. Overall Kenya is an amazing beautiful country, just book your trip! We ended up booking via Joseph at Wildlife Safari and everything was amazing from start to finish.
