Good
5/5

I decided to book with this company after checking over to 10 companies and we settle on them because of the quickness in communications and full information. We booked 10 days safari with beach and it was very good and recommend this company and if you want to feel pride of africa.

Worst Safari Ever
1/5

I have been on other safaris in other African countries and this has been the worst by far! Look elsewhere for a safari company.

ITINERARY
Our original itinerary looked good on paper, however, we found out, while on safari, that it involved backtracking which meant the safari had to be changed causing us to miss 2 half day game drives in Masai Mara (which was supposed to be the highlight of the trip!)

DAILY “ROUTINE”
We were told by PRIDE OF AFRICA that we would be starting at 7:00 AM each morning so we would be able to get the most of our safari while in Africa. In reality our normal start was 8:30 AM. We also noticed that other guides brought their clients back from game drives to their accommodation around 6:30 PM. Our guide brought us back at 3:30 PM. This timing was the worst possible! Wildlife is active in the mornings and evenings while we were still at our hotel! We were out at the time when most wildlife is sleeping so we saw much, much less! Our game drives were 4.5hrs shorter everyday.

The only day we did not follow our “daily routine” was the last day. On the last day we started at 6:30 AM. That was the day we were to be “Arriving in Nairobi late in the evening“ (as our itinerary stated). We went on our game drive that morning, but only for 1.5 hours so that the guide could get back home early. We asked him about it and he told us that we could have a longer game drive but we would have to pay him extra for that! A 1.5 hr game drive!!! Our guide wanted to just get home early!

GUIDE & DRIVER
We had an excellent driver. As a guide, however, he did very little communication in letting us know about what was happening and only told us about the wildlife when we asked. He was knowledgeable about the wildlife but chose not to communicate that knowledge with us.

VEHICLE UPGRADE
When we arrived we were taken to the office of PRIDE OF AFRICA and were asked if we wanted additional day tours. After not purchasing an additional tour we were told that we could upgrade our vehicle to a LAND CRUISER. We were told that it would be more comfortable and better able to handle the wet trails in the Masai Mara, We went for the vehicle upgrade and paid US$800.00 for it. When we began our safari there was no Land Cruiser but the standard (2020/21 Toyota Hiace 4x4) instead. A vehicle that was uncomfortable with poor suspension and both side doors could not be opened from the inside (the guide had to open our doors every time we wanted to get out of the vehicle). We felt scammed out of US$800.00 and were never compensated for it.

SHORTFALLS & EXTRA CHARGES
Our original safari outlined several key points that were eliminated in our actual safari.
The first paragraph of our safari description stated:
- Includes "pre and post accommodation"
(We only received pre-accommodation)
- Tour Price Includes “All park entrance fees”
(We were charged an extra $40 to enter Maasai Mara)

- Game drives as detailed in the itinerary.
(There were ignored by the driver)

The itinerary changed and we missed out on several highlights because the original itinerary involved backtracking – A poorly designed itinerary that they changed in the middle of our safari

FOOD
The food was fine. That was not the reason we went on safari in Africa.

OVERALL
Overall a badly run safari.
I would never book again with PRIDE OF AFRICA!!!!!

Marvelous
5/5

I enjoyed an abreathtaking 3days safari at maasai mara just the other day...our driver/ guide (Tom) was super knowledgeable, dedicated to giving us the best experience and also making sure that I see all the Big five wild animals ie Elephant, Rhino,Lion, Buffalo, Leopard and other animals I could be able to see.The safari was just astounding

The Name Speaks it's self ( PAAS)
5/5

Had some colleagues from Europe who wanted to experience the African wildlife safari, after a long search we settled on PAAS for a 10days Kenya Tanzania safari,we had a lifetime experience with the friendly and experienced guides from both countries, the accomodation was out of this world,. I would say we saw all the animals with our guides spotting the big 5 on the first day. Thinking of African safari think of PAAS

Best of the best
5/5

When i discussed with sales consultant Mr Stephen i wanted a 5 day safari but his convincing made me choose 7days safari and it turned out amazing the driver was very knowledgeable and knew his way in kenya he made us feel part of the tour at all times i recommend him any time
