Excellent service worth every cent
5/5

We were looking for a reasonably priced safari and we found Mufasa offer. From the very first contact with Caroline from Mufasa we knew the choice was just what we needed. Sharp, clear, to the point, very efficient, provided the offer that met our needs and requirements. We went on the safari tour with Joseph as our driver-guide, and I must say there could not be a better choice. Driving in Kenya is not easy and Joseph was an excellent driver, safe and careful. He offered vast knowledge of the country, parks, animals, plants. During game drives he showed us much more than we expected. He became not just a driver-guide but a dear friend of my wife and I. Thanks to him we were able to see and learn much more than we expected and we were sorry to say goodbye to him at the end of out tour. When you book your tour ask for Joseph and you will get the top service and experience.
The accommodations were all at Sentrim lodges and they also exceeded our expectations. Better quality then expected. Fine meals and lunch packages. Friendly service. All that we needed.
Also additional services as train tickets and transfers were very well organized and met our expectations.
We highly recommend using Mufasa as your service provider for a trip in Kenya. Thank you Caroline, Yoseph, Naomi and John. You made it the trip of our lifetime.

Excellent experience in Kenya!
5/5

We spent 6 days and 5 nights with our guide Peter travelling between Samburu, Nakuru and Masai Mara and it was an incredible experience!
First of all, communication with Joel was very easy and he replied to all our doubts very quickly. We had to change some accomodation due to some issues but the ones finally selected met our expectations by far, great places into the nature. Big rooms, swimming pools, super friendly staff and being able to see animals in the wild from our terrace.
The planning was good and we would not change it, we think it was appropriate for a first experience in a safari.
Peter was an excellent guide, he tried his best everyday so as we could see as many animals as possible and we did see them indeed, big five and much more! He was flexible with timetables, we saw sunsets, sunrises, masai village and many many animals.
Definitely a great option, Mufasa Tours and Travels won't disappoint you!

IT FELT LIKE HOME!
5/5

My safari experience with Mufasa Tours and Travel was my best travel experience to date. I have been to 30 countries and nothing can compare to being home in The Motherland. Polly did an amazing job with my safari planning and ensured that everything logistically went well. She has far exceeded my expectations.

I did the 2 Day Masai Mara Safari with this company and managed to see all of the animals that I desired to see. Hosea was my tour guide and he was the absolute best! His personality, knowledge, awareness, and sense of humor made my experience fun and safe.

I stayed at the Zebra Plains Boutique Tented Camp and it was nothing short of amazing from the time I checked in to my departure.

I am forever grateful for Mufasa Tours and looking forward to planning future safari experiences with them.

Excellent service from all including Polly Makena to the perfect treatment from Guide Collin Semple
5/5

My tour of 3 nights/4 days to Amboseli Nat'l Park was enjoyable considering the extremely dry conditions due to no rains for almost one year in that region. The guide who picked me up in Nairobi, Collin Sempele was excellent in every way. I have been visiting Africa for 8 years as a professional wildlife photographer and was impressed with Collin's guiding and in particular his understanding that I have a spinal condition that cannot tolerate the typical pounding of bad roads. He went out of his way to avoid bad sections of roads!

Polly Makena was the perfect customer service person! She responded to every question I had via emails or text messages without fail.

I will return to Kenya in the future and certainly use Mufasa Tours as needed.

Incredible experience with a 5* tour operator!
5/5

A wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience, organised and led by a very professional, reliable and well-run team - Mufasa Travels! We are so pleased with how everything went with Mufasa and couldn't recommend it highly enough. I'll try to outline some of our experience in the hope it helps others.

Communication with Joseph:
We started planning our safari dream holiday 9 months before flying out. We emailed around 10 different suppliers and eventually decided upon Mufasa for several different reasons.

Most of it came down to the communication we had with Joseph via email. From the very first email, he was prompt, polite and extremely helpful with his responses, information and suggestions. Some other operators were also good in this regard, but it felt as though Joseph always went out of his was to make us feel comfortable and gave us personal suggestions on how to make our trip the honeymoon of a lifetime. Very importantly, it never felt like he was trying to over-sell us anything - it was all very much about me and my wife and what we wanted - he was happy to just assist! He was also very patient, as I think I ended up sending him about 100+ emails over the course of 6 months! Each one replied to with an articulate and thorough response.

Joseph really is a credit to Mufasa team and he is the reason we ended up choosing Mufasa and planning what ended up being such a wonderful safari together.

We went for a private tour which we highly recommend if your budget permits. You can take your time, are never rushed, can decide what animals to focus on, can decide how long to stay at any given spot etc etc. It just gives you so much flexibility. We also went for a luxury option with all three of our camps being top quality accommodation. At two of them we even had our own butler!

Masai Mara:
What a wonderful Park this is. Being our first safari, our objective was to see the Big 5. We ended up seeing that and much much more! Our guide Julius was excellent. He is extremely experienced and has being around the Masai Mara (and other parks) for most of his life - even his father was a guide! He was attentive, funny and knowledgeable and we recommend him highly! Everything went smoothly and it felt like he was always one step ahead in the planning.

The only thing we would note is that on the last day we had a bit of a hiccup and weren't provided with the required packed lunch from Masai Mara, when handed over to the Tanzania side - so we went a bit hungry! Other than that, everything was perfect!

We also decided on a hot air balloon ride over the savannah for sunrise on one day, followed by a breakfast out in the open plains. We highly recommend this if it is in your budget - one of the best things we've ever done! Also a special shout out to out driver for this (Pesi) who during the game drive back to our lodge managed to show us a Leopard for the first time!

Serengeti and Ngorongoro:
As we had seen the Big 5 in Kenya, we wanted to match that in Tanzania but also wanted to focus on big cats as well. Therefore, our guide (named Saidi), had a big task ahead of him! In short, Saidi delivered everything and more! He was amazing! We saw the Big 5 but also our request to focus on the big cats led to us seeing dozens of lions (hunting, courting, in trees, sleeping etc), 7 Cheetahs (3 different sightings, one of which they were hunting), and several Leopards. We also saw some smaller rarer cats like the Caracal and a Serval twice! It couldn't have gone better.

Saidi was deeply knowledgeable and was able to immediately answer all of our questions with ease. On top of that he made sure to point out everything he could and taught us so much about the endless plains of the Serengeti. What we loved most about him was that he used his radio so effectively. Communicating with other guides to find specifically what we were looking for every time, it was great! If you go to the Serengeti/Ngorongoro - be sure to ask for Saidi!

Accommodation:
In Masai Mara we stayed at Neptune Mara and it was incredible. The lodge overlooks a river where we saw giraffes, hippos, gazelle, crocodiles, zebras and baboons - all while having breakfast!

In Serengeti we stayed at Kubukubu Lodge which was great. There is an amazing view over the savannah and an awesome outdoor hot shower!

In Ngorongoro we stayed at Acacia Farm Lodge. This place is wonderful and very sustainable as it makes use of the farmland to produce its own foods! The staff also organised a wonderful surprise romantic dinner with a bonfire for us!

Overall:
Long review (sorry!), but to sum it up, it was the experience of a lifetime and we could not have had that without Mufasa Travels, Joseph, Julius and Saidi. Communication was very prompt and thorough throughout all of our planning, we were given countless ideas and suggestions, there was also a lot of flexibility to do exactly what we wanted, and the delivery from the guides was pretty much flawless!

We highly recommend Mufasa Travels, Joseph, Julius and Saidi!
