Africa Flash McTours is a tour operator based in Nairobi, Kenya specializing in African Safari packages. We take pride for having a team of professionals who have traveled in Africa and now works to ensure that our clients both acquire a unique and educational experience of African wildlife, landscape and culture. Since our inception in 2009, Africa Flash McTours has catered to numerous international clients in various continents particularly in Europe, America, and Asia.
A safari is always an amazing experience, but ours with Africa Flash Mc Tours and Travels was more than that: Patrick, our guide and driver, knew a lot of things about the animals and also knew the best places or hours to see them. He was always in good mood and we had a good time in his companion. Peter was specially kind with us, helping in things that were not only in relation with the safari itself. The accommodations he offered us were in very special locations and very nice. They made us to have an unforgettable stay in this part of Kenia, before going to the coast .
6 day custom safari
Our trip with Africa FlashMC was nothing short of spectacular. From the very first contact, Peter has gone above and beyond in helping us out and redesigning initial itinerary drafts based on our changing ideas. We ended up doing a safari for 6 days, 5 nights with 1 night each on Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha and 3 nights in Maasai Mara.
Our driver and guide, Simon, has done an outstanding job driving us to the best places and enabled us to take excellent photos and create long lasting memories. Not only did we manage to see the big 5, but we even saw 3 different leopards, big herds of elephants, groups of cheetahs, ostriches etc. It has been an incredible experience and I will definitely be booking with Peter and Africa FlashMC again!
Since Patrick picked us up in the airport until he left us in Nairobi every thing has been perfect. We asked for hotels inside de parks (wich is quite important) and the stardart ones were excellence! Unforgettable experience!
Excellent communication, knowledgable driver, good locations.
Booking was simple and straight-forward: any questions we had was answered usually within less than an hour, even when we wrote in the evening.
Pick-up was pretty much on time, the driver (Simon) professional, and whilst it is not one of those latest Landrovers with the higher windows, that shouldn't be expected at a fair price-point of about $1035pp for 2.
Lodging was excellent in Maasai Mara (Mara Sopa Lodge) and good-enough in Lake Nakuru (the rooms very a bit 'minimalist' but the main-building more than made up for it, plus service in both places was flawless), the driver was very knowledgable and very attentive to small requests: we all have our hobbies, and my joy is having my camera with me and asking to just advance a few meters back and forth at times. Having an attentive driver for these small things makes all the difference as a customer. More importantly, and as a suggestion: the 'basic' program seems to suggest safaris should start around 730AM. We requested to be out at 6AM with sunrise, and for anyone who has done a Safari before: that's when the true magic happens and most animals are out. 730AM would be a waste of the sunrise and your money.
At Lake Nakuru, make sure you drive straight to the flamingos at sunrise when the morning-fog hovers over the lake and creeps out of the forest. Just breathtaking.
If I could change one thing, and this is not a negative of the program in itself, then I'd change the program to go twice a day when the light is best versus driving all day to get further into the park. Whilst I'm glad we ultimately did that, driving a whole day is quite exhausting and mid-day is not quite as interesting if it's not your first safari.
Meals on the road between stops were quite basic, but that's simply how it is. Meals at lodges was great.
The important bit is: we saw the Big 5, we got some fantastic shots and memories, and at this price-point we had excellent service and attention to our requests.
The trip of a lifetime
The 8 day safari my friend and I took was even more amazing than I could have imagined.
Before the Safari I really appreciated Manager Peter N. prompt responses to my many questions.
Our driver Anthony on Kenya portion of the Safari was not only knowledgeable, but also attentive to our needs and had a great personality. He also was very good at driving to the locations where we had the best view as possible of the animals.
Victor, our driver in Tanzania was also very knowledgeable and considerate.
Thank you Peter for arranging a trip of a lifetime.
