Excellent Safari Experince
Overall rating

I booked a trip with Leisure Escape Safari. They did an excellent job. The trip to Kenya was very good. Hospitable people. I visited four national parks. I started in Nairobi and first visited Amboseli, then Naivasha Lake, Nakuru Lake and finally Maasai Mara. Nakuru Lake was the best for seeing wildlife. I saw all five major wildlife during the trip. It was an excellent trip overall and enjoyed my stay in Kenya.

It's amazing journey in Kenya!
Overall rating

It was my first time to be Kenya, didn't get much impression about Nairobi because only stayed there for one night. However, the following tour with Beacon Safaris was really fantastic. What surprised me was that the country looked so beautiful and clean, people were nice and friendly, the hotels we had stayed were up to international standard, so as the meals... It was really a wonderful and unforgettable journey for me!

Amazing Destination
Overall rating

We loved our time in Kenya. We went to the Maasai Mara, Amboseli, and Lake Nakuru. All three parks were amazing for different things. The Maasai Mara just had animals everywhere and has the Savannah look that I think most people outside of the continent imagine Africa. Amboseli has the view of Mount Kilimanjaro which is unparalleled by any other view. Lake Nakuru gives the best chance to see Rhinos and would probably interest bird watchers a lot (though Amboseli was really good too).

We loved that we went during the low season when there were less tourists. It slowed us to get closer to animals. Our only thing we weren't prepared for were the women trying to sell their goods outside of each park. They can be very pushy to buy something and you can only buy so much.

A dream come true
Overall rating

The title sums up our Safari trip. We honestly could not have imagined a better Safari trip. Dan, our tour guide, honestly made the trip by being so knowledgeable, kind and accommodating. He spoke to us about Kenya as a country, explained the history and local life of villages and towns as we drive through them and really gave us a sense of what Kenya is.
The safari its self was honestly breath taking. We saw all of the big 5 and were lucky enough to see 4 of those 5 on our first 2 hour game drive. We had moments of pure tranquility in which we were parked up amongst a heard of elephants, watching them interact with one another and eat. We also experienced a pack of lions waking up from their night sleep and walking casually around us. I can’t express how amazing all of this was.
We stayed in fabulous accommodation (The Mara maisha camp and the sopa lodge) in which the food was outstanding along with the cleanliness, comfort and facilities that were all offered to us. We felt safe at all times.
I can’t express how amazing Dan our tour guide was. He really did make the trip for us!!
I highly recommend Kenya, Mufasa tours and Dan for your Safari!!

Country worth visiting!
Overall rating

My family visited Giraffe Centre and Snake park in Nairobi.Then we had a 5 day safari (Amboseli-Nakuru-Naivasha-Maasai Mara) with Bigmac Africa Safaris.This tour operator is excellent and they respond quickly to any inquiries.My little boy had a chance to dance with the Maasai people in their village.
Diani beach also has powdery white sand.We rode camels for the first time.Kenya is never boring as there is a lot of things to do from the city of Nairobi to the grasslands to the coastal area.I would say this is a trip of a lifetime for my family.

Kenya delivers a wonderful experience beyond expectations.
Overall rating

A most amazing experience from start to finish. We enjoyed wonderful views of Kilimanjaro from our Elerai Camp lodgings in Amboseli filled with an abundance of stunning wildlife. Travelling along the expanse of the East African Rift Valley on route to Sopa Lodge in Lake Nakuru, where a beautiful sunrise led to a day of wildlife viewing that didn’t disappoint. Finishing our journey in the great Masai Mara staying with the wonderful welcoming team at Amani Mara. We enjoyed the sounds and sights of an abundance of Hippos in the Ntiak Ntiak river below. Our amazing guide Joseph, is very knowledgeable and experienced and pointed out many different animals and birds. Part of a friendly and cooperative network of guides, he ensured we had some amazing animal encounters and was extremely accommodating of our enthusiasm for photography, stopping and pausing whenever we requested. Lions, Cheetahs, Elephants, Giraffes, Zebras, Rhinos, Hippos, Flamingos, the list goes on. Thanks to Joseph, The Spirit of Kenya and their accommodation partners, we enjoyed the most wonderful, memorable experience. We can’t wait to visit again!

Beautiful nature and a beautiful country to go on safari
Overall rating

From the moment of arrival at the international airport, the transfer to Wilson airport, the flights with ALS, the reception at Little Goverments Camp, the safari, the food, the drinks, the hot air balloon flight. Everything was extremely well taken care of, including the temporary storage of our hard travel suitcases.

Amazing experience, great value and good vibes!
Overall rating

Great value for a safari, did one in Tanzania which cost double but wasn't as good.

This one was efficient, which means you will have a better experience viewing animals and we had a friendly and knowledgable driver who was able to help pus see some amazing things within a short space of time. Accommodation and meals were better than expected and we have no complaints. If we were to go again I wouldn't hesitate to book with the same company. Driver was Samuel.

I love Kenya, come every year to discover some other part of the country.
Overall rating

Beautiful coast and so much diversity of nature and wildlife across the country, from amazing dry and volcanic Turkana to different national parks, green and lush Mt Kenya or exotic Lamu island. Kind and friendly people everywhere. Wide range of all budget accomodations, restaurants or agencies. It's my favourite african country, and I've visited a lot of them across the continent. Excellent safaries, when you do the big parks, go for the less known
