The Most Magical Experience
The national park left us speechless, we were extremely lucky and were able to see a huge amount of wild animals every single day, including a hunt!

Kenya should be on your list to visit
Kenya provides great sceneries, wildlife, beaches and mountains. Nairobi is a bustling city of 5M people. Like all cities, it has some great areas and areas to avoid. We went to South Beach in Mombasa and it's a great place if you want privacy and stay at the beach. It's not as developed as the North Beach and getting in and out of the city is not easy. Even though the great migration was over, wildlife viewing in the Masai Mara was rewarding and we got to see four of the big five! It's a great place for bird watchers too. If you want to feel the exhilaration of seeing untouched land, this is the destination.

Kenya is a magical place
I would highly recommend anyone take the time and opportunity to visit Kenya. The land is pristine, the wildlife goes without saying, and the people are genuinely hospitable and excited to welcome visitors. This was a first visit to the continent of Africa and to Kenya, so I had no idea what to expect. What I encountered were truly beautiful people who were eager to welcome, share their stories, share their culture, share their dreams, and share their concerns. The place and the people reminded me of how less can really be more. I was also struck by how embracing of nature the people are and how real the constant struggle between man and nature truly is. I would recommend to anyone to visit Kenya. My only regret was that we did not stay longer.

One of the most beautiful places on the planet.
We visited Kenya (Nakuru and Maasai Mara) as part of our honeymoon, and it didn't disappoint.
Throughout our trip, we were consistently stunned by the country's beauty and landscapes. We were incredibly lucky to have seen 'The Big Five' within the first 24 hours. We honestly couldn't believe it!
The food and hospitality we enjoyed was fantastic. We felt welcome wherever we went.
A few tips for first time travellers, be sure to book your Yellow Fever jab before visiting the country - especially if you're planning to fly onto another country afterwards. Customs require this before you can leave the country. Secondly, avoid the East Africa Expressway at all costs. It's the main road from Nairobi into the Mara region and is notorious for traffic jams. We got stuck in on for 2+ hours. However, our driver said that it wasn't uncommon for you to spend the night there when it's really bad.

Amazing natural environment! Friendly people and THE BEST tourguide !!
Me and my family visited Masai Mara with SafariBookings this summer and it was a truly special experience for us. First and foremost, we saw so many animals and wildlife, even seeing a lion eating a buffalo. The highlight of our trip was our guide Kelvin, he was super helpful with everything we needed and explained everything thoroughly. He made sure to always drive us to the best spots to see lions, hippos and elephants. Beware that the wifi in the hotels is not great but it's an opportunity for a much needed digital detox. The tour of the Masai Mara village was also insightful, and everyone was super helpful and allowed us to step into their homes when it suddenly started raining.

We went to Kenya for a wedding and took the opportunity to travel a bit around.
We had the most fantastic time in Kenya!!! We recommend it to anyone and would definitely come back.
We had a 4 day and a half safari trip, going to Tsavo West, Amboseli and last Tsavo East. The price was fair, considering we had our private car, with our own guide, all meals included and the lodges.
I have to mention our guide Sule (I am not sure if we are spelling it correctly), which was REALLY great!! He had the best eyes and easily spotted far away animals, helped us in any way he could and definitely made the trip more pleasant.
We manage to see almost all animals, from birds to all big 5. Including the Rhino, which can be seen protected in Tsavo West.
The view in Amboseli was breathtaking with the Kilimanjaro on the background. And so many animals!!!
We are a couple from Brazil, so I can say that Kenya reminded us a lot from Brazil. The food, the friendly people and even the coast.
