Beacon Safaris a leader in the field of tours and travel, and is completely devoted and engaged in offering vacationers a perfect date with the African wilderness.
We had to cancel our Kenya safari Aug 2019 trip due to pandemic. Intimated well in advance and as per contract Beacon Safari promised to refund our advance. It is more than two years we are begging. Company committed/ promised several dates. The latest one by this Dec 21 entire amount , that too failed. Can not trust this company, they don't honor contract.
The tour operator is knowledgeable and reliable.
The tour operator Beacon Safaris, we were dealing with Robert, is very reliable. Robert made all wishes possible. We did the safari with Ken. He speaks perfect English, has a good general knowledge and knows everything about animals. Ken is a good driver, a professional with whom we would go on safari again at any time. We did the "Free-Born Safari", which we liked very much. We can recommend Beacon Safari.
Professional excellent service
Amazing service. Robert responded to us promptly no matter how many questions we asked. We found them very reliable and would 100% recommend them to anyone wanting a safari. Good value for money. Our guide Antony was incredible. He went above and beyond to make our safari experience phenomenal and anyone would be lucky to have him as their driver/guide. We felt totally safe with his driving. We Nick-named him Eagle-Eyed Antony due to his fabulous skills of spotting wildlife.
The best company in Kenya.
We were given a three-day safari at the Masai Mara, which was the best we had in Kenya. Robert quickly contacted us, answered all our questions, made us a good price and agreed to get money from us for the safari after arriving in Nairobi. We were greeted by our guide Anthony, who did everything to make these days rich for us with new meetings and great impressions. We are very grateful to him for a good time together. We have seen a huge number of animals and observed the migration of zebras and wildebeest in the Masai Mara. Anthony is a very kind, cheerful and most importantly professional guide. Many thanks to Robert and Anthony for making our visit to Masai Mara unforgettable. We recommend to everyone this, in all respects, excellent company in Kenya.
Wonderful private safari experience for eight days
We had an amazing safari of eight days to Amboseli, Lake Nakuru National Park, and Masai Mara!
From our initial interaction till we bade goodbye, we had a smooth experience.
We started our discussions with Robert in January 2020 for a safari in October 2020. Robert was able to understand our requirements, and provided us with a tailored itinerary for a private safari for my wife and myself in a safari van for our stated budget. He was flexible and responsive, and was able to tweak the plan to suit our liking. We made the advance payment in early February 2020. We had numerous questions being our first African safari, and Robert was patient enough to answer them all in a timely manner.
Then, the pandemic put a halt to our travel plans, and Robert was gracious enough to allow us to delay our trip by up to a year. During this period, we stayed in touch and Robert was responsive and kept the communication flowing.
When the travel restrictions eased out in late September of 2021, Robert was agile enough to bring back our safari from deep-freeze and was able to arrange for it in a short notice.
We finally did our safari from October 14, 2021 to October 21, 2021.
Robert also arranged to pick us up from the airport to our accommodation on October 13, 2021.
Patrick was our driver and guide for the safari. He was friendly and helpful, and understood our tastes and preferences. He drove safely at all times, and tackled some rough terrain during our safaris with great skill. He showed good judgement on what he could tackle with the vehicle and what he couldn't. As a result, we were never stuck anywhere during our drives.
We saw a ton of wildlife during our game drives.
Patrick was knowledgeable to explain them to us, and got some great sightings. He did a good mix of his own spotting and using the information from radio from the other guides.
His eye for spotting wildlife came to the fore when he spotted a leopard on the first evening's game drive in the Masai Mara. The leopard was well hidden within the foliage of the tree, but, Patrick's expert eyes spotted the kill stashed on one of the branches and spotted the hidden leopard!
At the Mara, he used information from the radio on the first full day game drive to ensure we saw some of the animals we'd never seen before. On the other days at Mara and at Amboseli, he avoided the crowds and ensured we had a great experience.
We had a fantastic experience at the accommodations we stayed at, and our dietary requirements were taken care of (vegetarian food).
Overall, we had an amazing and a memorable experience, and we greatly recommend Beacon Safaris!
