The best Amboseli and view of Kilimanjaro
Overall rating
5/5

The best park was Amboseli. Acommodadion and food was perfect. Widelife and scenic - wonderful.
I put Lake Nakuru in second place. Beautiful area and many rhinos.
What I liked the least was Masai Mara Park. Such a famous park and so few animals. Yes, there were a lot of predators. especially lions, but there were few large herds of ungulates.

Overall rating
5/5

Our Safari with Meektrailsafaris was amazing from the accommodation to the transfer and the trips associated with it. We saw a lot our driver Antony was a great person. We learned a lot of new things that we didn't know before. We really enjoyed the Safari and will definitely return to Kenya in the future. We have a lot of experiences and beautiful memories.

The perfect destination for a safari
Overall rating
5/5

Having been on safaris before in Kenya, we had no hesitation in returning when the opportunity arrived.
There is a huge variety of operators, we chose Spirit of Kenya who proved to be excellent.
Wherever we went (Amboseli, Lake Nakuru, Mara and Samburu), there were wonderful and memorable sightings every day.
We were lucky to see a multitude of animals and birds be it the impressive herds of elephants in Amboseli, rhinos in Nakuru and big cats in the Mara. Samburu did not disappoint either with more elephants and the sightings of the "Special Five" (Reticulated giraffe, Somalian ostrich, Grevy's Zebra, Biesa oryx and Gerenuk).
Nairobi is easy to reach by air and despite the hectic traffic around that city, once you get out the roads were mostly a pleasure to be driven on and were in good condition.
Some of the scenery was just beautiful, the temperatures got in to the early 30's but was not too much of a problem.
We never felt our safety was threatened at any stage.
I have no hesitation in recommending Kenya as an excellent safari destination.

Fantastic Tour
Overall rating
5/5

Our tour with Anthony of Meektrails was spectacular! We saw dozens of different animals on our eight day tour of four major parks. I was amazed at the number and variety of animals. Anthony was a helpful and informative guide and all of the lodging choices were extremely nice. The Kenyan people were very kind.

Excellent first trip to Kenya
Overall rating
5/5

Our group spent 3 days in the Maasai Mara before heading to Eldoret to provide medical training. This was the perfect way to get over jet lag and stay active. We were able to see the Big 5 and multiple other animals on our daily safaris. We flew from Nairobi to a small airstrip next to our hotel with Safarilink and I couldn’t recommend this option more because it saves you a 5 hour drive (flight was 45 minutes) and it just adds to the adventure for about an extra $100. We stayed at the Serena Mara lodge and the stay was wonderful. The staff was very accommodating and the meals were actually pretty good (well seasoned &plenty of options) for a large scale hotel operation.

We used Seremara safaris to plan our excursion. Benson and his team were there every step of the way, from driving us from the hotel to Wilson Airport, checking us into our flight and picking us up on our return. Communication was easy during planning. Seremara was very detailed in what was to be provided and payment options were a breeze. Benson, from Seremara, was available via WhatsApp during our safari for any issues.

Needless to say our group was very pleased with the tour we had set up for us and we had no issues along the way. We would definitely use Seremara again and I’m happy to have been matched up with them through this website.

Fabulous Kenya
Overall rating
5/5

I am a frequent visitor to Kenya. This trip did not disappoint. I always discover something new things besides revisiting the old. I love taking friends to Giraffes Center, Elephant Orphanage and City Park to feed the monkeys. Every safari experience is different and fabulous.

Beautiful country!
Overall rating
5/5

It’s a beautiful country, with so much adventurous activities. The wildlife sightings are a dream come true for any wildlife enthusiast. Avoid travelling to Mombasa in Jan-Mar, as it gets very hot in the day.

Wonderful Wildlife and Scenery that is protected and cared for
Overall rating
5/5

I visited Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara. In 4 days (3 nights) using Balu travel. Isaac was my private guide and he was amazing. Besides having a hospitality background and gaming experience, he was a friendly and caring guide who made sure that i had a great trip. The hotel in Nakuru ‘Sarova Woodlands’ in Nakuru town was ok with very friendly staff, good internet and buffet restaurant (but no gym) . The tented lodge in Masai Mara ‘Emayian Luxery Lodge’ was amazing. All inclusive and fine dining, jacuzzi in front of the tent and very friendly staff. The two parcs had abundant wildlife including the famous big five. But also many other animals. The facilities inside the parcs are less than in South Africa (no picknick areas with washrooms). This is inconvenient when traveling the whole day. In Masai Mara we made a stop at a crocoldile walk-centre and at the airport for a toilet break, both locations did not have toilet paper.
