Love it. Masai Mara is incredible.
Overall rating

Masai Mara is beautiful. I love that Kenya is taking steps to protect its wildlife by taking a hard stance against poaching, against hunting safari, against eating / selling game meat. The animals in Masai are beautiful and abundant, you can see that they are living a satisfied life.
I love it, and I want to be back again.

Great safari with African Paradise Safari in Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru
Overall rating

Our safari with African Paradise Safari was just great! Our guide was so professional and he knew exactly where to go at all times for us not to miss any of the big 5!

We loved our stay at Miti Mingi Eco Camp as well :) staff there was so kind and nice. Food was also good (buffet).

Amazing Masai Mara
Overall rating

Our Safari, organized by African Scenery Holidays, was great: we had a 4 days safari (Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru), but actually we had game drives 2half days and a full day.. it was enough as Masai Mara was full of animals! we saw many lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, hippos, crocodiles, zebras, giraffes, elephants, wildebeest, ostriches, pumbas, timons .. and a white rhino in lake Nakuru. We also visited the Maasai village and it was very interesting.
our safari was a budget one but we saw as much animals as the luxurious safaris.
The tended camp we stayed in was basic, and the food monotonous, we had to change driver many times as the travellers in our van had different itinerarys (maybe longer or shorter safaris than our), but it was ok.
The communication with our tour coordinator Fredinah was excellent, both before and during and even after the safari. She was always on hand to answer questions and reachable anytime. After the safaris we moved to the coast and this part of trip was for self organized, but she was still available to help us when we needed. We felt we had a secure support and a person to trust in, and it was very reassuring. Thankyou Freedinah!

Absolutely amazing, better than expected. Saw the big 5 more than once. Ample animal species to view. And many close up encounters with lions and cheaters. Elephants galore and even the scarce leapords.
Nakuru, Masai Mara, Hell’s Gate and Amboseli made for a Safari that did not disappoint. Thanks Kenya for sharing.

Great but way too many hours in the safari vehicle driving between the different parks.
Overall rating

Great wildlife and our accomodation, Losokwan, was above our expectations. Simple but we had everything we needed and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We very really in the middle of everything! Elephants and buffalos right outside our tent during the nights. 5 hours drive to Lake Nakuru from Masai Mara was ok and the lodge; Flamingo Hill was very nice and with a pool. Great staff. Wildlife ok but we preferred the open landscape in Masai Mara. 9,5 hrs drive from there to Amboseli; not ok. Exhausting drive through Nairobi and the camp; Zebra Plains Amboseli camp was not at all as expected. Dirty, dusty, hardly no furnitures and showed no resemblance with the pictures on their webpage. However, very nice staff. Wildebeest safari had a very nice driver but he was not really interested in what we wanted to experience. It felt like he rushed through the parks. All in all; a 5 out of 10 for the whole safari-experience. Sadly...

Great safari country

Fantastic. But more restrictions should be applied for the benefit of the animals.

Kenya: must-see country for wildlife lovers
Overall rating

The wildlife in Kenya is second to none. Especially recommended the parks of Samburu and of course Masai Mara.
Just a small disappointment: very few flamingos in Lake Nakuru. The sunsets are beautiful, as in many places in Africa.
Maximum punctuation for our guide Eric, Beacon Safaris, not only for his ability to take us to the best points to see wildlife, but also for his experience, ability to solve problems and his respect and consideration for animal life.

Magical Kenya
Overall rating

Beautiful wildlife and landscapes in Masai Mara. We got to see the Big five animals. Beautiful ake nakuru and Naivasha. The kenyan hospitality very good , the roads are in ad condition most of the way to Masai Mara from Nairobi, only few km are paved. Accommodation in the lodge near the Masai Mara park was very good. Very memorable experience.

A must see once in your life
Overall rating

This was my second time to Kenya, after a 23 year break, and the wildlife experience was terrific and amazing as experienced already in 1996. The Masai Mara is a life time experience, I cannot imagine a better place for such an experience. The flamingos though have moved away from Lake Nakuru, most to be found at Lake Bogoria now, another life time experience. My first trip to Kenya did not include the beaches, this time we spent a week at Diani beach south of Mombasa, another amazing experience........such a long stretch of white sandy beach along the Indian Ocean (it must be around 80 km) is amazing. Downside in Kenya are safety issues (one is advised not walk around after dark), lots of traffic jams in Nairobi and Mombasa, lots of bad roads in dire repair and the precautions for diseases like Yellow Fever, Malaria and such. Bottom line however is, that Kenya truly is a wonderful and unique destination.
