Incredible hospitality, incredible views.
Overall rating

As a whole, Kenya was an incredible experience. Everyone we met, from strangers to lodge workers, was very friendly and accommodating and went above and beyond. Driving through the parks was a surreal experience and we felt fortunate to be there and witness the animals in their element as well as just the amazing landscapes. We never felt unsafe at all, just welcomed. Highly recommend.

Very friendly people and beautiful/different landscape with fantastic variety of wild animals
Overall rating

We stayed 2 days in Nairobi (National Museum, ...) and did a 8 days game drive to 5 National Parks, excellent organized by Leopard Orchid Safaris with Patrick, a very good driver and with excellent knowledge of Parks and animals. We experienced very friendly people all over the country, a beautiful but also very different landscape and a fantastic variety of wild animals. Including some extraordinary adventures like stuck in a waterhole or "fighting" with an adult male baboon for bread ;-) - we got definitely more than expected. Our stay in different lodges was also to our absolutely satisfaction, including delicious meals. We would recommend to stay overnight at Amboseli and Lake Nakuru also inside the Park to have more time for the game drive. In total, an outstanding experience and fantastic holidays.

A must-do experience
Overall rating

Very well organised, incredibly safe, with the expert help of professional personal tour guide makes the trip even better than what we had imagined.

Right Choice Safaris shows you not only the amazing scenery and beautiful wildlife, but also the equally important true side of Kenya, while driving up and down the country with a different sight each day.

Would recommend to anyone, but especially to first time safari-goers - their experience and expertise allows you to focus only on the trip and make you feel like the center of attention.

Great Trip
Overall rating

It was an easy flight from Addis to Nairobi where I caught an afternoon ride to the Sankara Hotel. I had a pleasant evening and was met promptly at 7:00am as promised. The 5 hour ride to the camp just outside the Masai Mara Reserve went smoothly and included vistas of the Rift Valley and a couple of opportunities to do some shopping.

The camp was welcoming and the room generous and comfortable. The only surprise was the hot water bottle at the foot of my bed, which I thought was a small animal!

The afternoon included a stop at a Masai village where, for $30, you could get a tour of their homes and see some dancing. It was a fine experience, but I would have preferred not to have been given a tour of their wares with the expectation of a purchase at the end.

The ride to the game park was only interrupted by a gaggle of women animatedly selling their wares with calls of “Jambo, Hello! All for $10!” As I awaited my driver paying the entrance fee.

The park was amazing! I was able to see Zebra, Giraffes, and Water Buffalo within minutes of entering. The next two days were equally exciting as we saw Cheetah, lions, Hippos, Topi, Hyenas, Impala, Elephants, a Leopard, and many birds. The only one of the Big Five I didn’t see was a Rhino.

Overall, it was a great trip and made even greater by my guide, with his eagle eyes and kind demeanor, Charles.

Absolutely Magical (especially during the off-season!)
Overall rating

Before setting off for this trip, I was nervous about traveling during the off-season/wet season, as I wasn't sure if it would affect the possibilities of sightseeing and the success of the game drives. However, my experience in Masai Mara was incredible and I managed to see so much wildlife in the three days there (including 4 of the big 5).

I was lucky to arrive right after some heavy rains which made it so the lush vegetation attracted a lot of herbivores out. I was also lucky that my guide was very involved and interested in the success of my trip and actively seek out opportunities for us to see new animals.

We occasionally saw other cars but due to the off-season, my trip truly felt like a private tour. I would definitely recommend going during this time!

What an amazing experience!
Overall rating

I hesitated a lot between a private trip (but I was alone) and a group trip. And in the choice of tour operator.
I have no regrets about the group trip, Sermon Safaris or our fantastic guide.

The guide had a real desire to help us discover as much as possible, a perfect driving style, unfailing patience and a keen eye for spotting the slightest animal in the savannah.

I brought back hundreds of photos and memories.

I got to see all 5 bigs.

Without a doubt, for the avid vyager that I am, an unforgettable experience.

I'll be going back with my family, husband and daughter, and my friends have already made a date because they loved the photos they took.

Thanks to the guide and tour operator

We loved our stay in Masai Mara. The nature , weather, wildlife and the scenery was at its best.
Overall rating

We had a 4day stay in Masai Mara and 1day stay at Lake Nakuru. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lodge we stayed Ashnil Mara camp had a beautiful setting , the staff were very welcoming . Our tour operators “safariline defender tours ’ were easy to book with and the tour guide gave his best for my family of 4 to ensure we see the wildlife at its best and up close .
The one day trip to lake Nakuru was worth it as we missed out on sighting Rhinos at MM and were able to see at Nakuru. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kenya

Amazing Trip for diverse group
Overall rating

My whole group found Kenya a wonderful place to visit. Facilities were great (and not just for an emerging market). Wildlife were fantastic. People were great hosts and always helpful.

Going on safari in Amboselin was a touching and moving experience, wondrous and awe inspiring.
Overall rating

Going on safari in Kenya was utterly amazing: the scenic beauty, the many animals I saw at close range, the lodging, the guide. Everything was perfect and out of this world. It really made me feel big and small at the same time. I would highly recommend.
