good animal viewing but roads and general environment poor
Wildlife - good viewing but most only visible on the roads, where they are almost "tame"
Guide was great. Indeed all Kenyans were nice to us.
Roads in the parks terrible limiting getting around and detracting from the pleasure of being there. A very rough ride!
Roads to get around also very crowded with terrible traffic jams, mainly due to large trucks.
Due to the inability to cross into Tanzania there were long drives to and from the parks, via Nairobi
Nairobi is a polluted crowded city with terrible traffic jams and no redeeming features
in terms of souvenirs, poor quality and very expensive with most not in ebony (although sold as ebony)

The experience was amazing! We had a wonderful weather. Masai Mara is one of the most incredible places I have seen. Wildlife is gorgeous. However since it had been raining grass was high and lions harder to spot. But our guide was adorable and really tried his best for us and we found one lion.
The accomodation was very good for the price. The food wasn't that nice though. But its ok you quickly forget about it as the rest of the experience was gorgeous!

Loved evry bit of the Safari including the accomodation as it gave a camping vibe in the midst of the forest.
Food was also good. Transportation was great coz of the bumpy rides and it was a great experience.
They even helped me get a cake as a surprise for my friends birthday!
Thank you so much Safaris in Kenya

Masaai Mara Safari
Let’s start with the Mara Lodge 5***** lodge service and 3*** food
The pickup was seamless
The drive took 8.5 hours as we got stuck in Mud after entering very rough Terrain in the Mara and it’s a single lane hi way with numerous stops for random construction
Every tour driver stops to help the stranded driver
Nice when we got stuck but after three others got stuck it wasted 2-3 hours of day1
Unfortunately the roads were so bad that in no time my back was out of sync
The rest of the two days was at the wonderful lodge getting pampered by the staff as the only guest on the premises.
The ride back was equally long but after complaining a lot I was given the front seat
Also asked for a refund for the 2 Nd day entry which was given unwillingly
Take the LandRover or Jeeps DO NOT take the MINI VANS
They are uncomfortable unreliable and the drivers are a clique
Ensure you enter the park all 3 days as the charge is for 24 hr entry from first entry
This tour Co only entered the park in the first 24 hours and pocketed $80 USD for 7 passengers
Would not use them again

An incredible experience
Had an amazing time on safari in Kenya with Beacon Safaris! Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the beautiful wildlife, scenery and country. Highly recommended

Colors beautiful and lodges wonderful but deception for big cats
All perfect except the weather (too much rain so grass high and dificult to see lions cheetahs and leopards... ). All zebras, and antilopes are outside the reserve of Maasai mara or Mara Triangle because of high grass (too dangerous)
Maasai Mara is not well done because very expensive and complicated to change from a reserve to another (and not posible to stay for watching animals when we crossed the Noth Conservancy, this is a very bad point: a chetah was hunting and the guide did not want to satay because he was afraid of the penality...)
Guide (Stephen) not very good and we had to change him 2 days before the end of the Maasai Mara tour.
