Great experience, guide and value for money
5/5

Initial communication was very easy and Robert sorted us out with what we wanted.

Anthony was a great tour guide throughout. Shared so much knowledge with us and knew where all the good spots were. We saw lions, cheetahs and leopards all on our first day!

We stayed at ilkeliani camp which was lovely. Would definitely recommend. Our tent was incredible, very comfy bed and friendly staff.

Thanks so much

When the dream come true...
5/5

I don't know how to thank you for these wonderful days in Kenya! There are no words for this. Unforgettable, perfect, professional... We will forever be grateful to Beacon Safaris for this safari. We saw the big five. Incredible, amazing, eternal memories! Thank you Robert for making our dream come true! We recommend Beacon Safaris to everyone!
Asante Sana! :)

Unforgettable 7 days safari with the best guide !
5/5

We did 7 days of safari and the satisfaction has been maximum from the first moment. Our thanks to Robert, who provided us with the perfect accommodations that fit our budget, with fast and fluid communication.
Special mention for the best guide: Eric. He always took us to the best places to see our favorite animals. Eric is a guide with incredible professionalism, experience and ability to solve unforeseen events. But above all, we want to highlight the great respect and consideration he shows for animal life.

Everything about the trip was perfect.
5/5

Beacon Safaris did an excellent job of communicating with us leading up to the trip, providing comfort that everything would be taken care of while we were there. We were drawn to Beacon since they were offering private, customizable luxury tours and that's exactly what we got. Our guide, Antony, picked us up at the airport and was with us the duration of the trip.

The entire trip lived up to expectations, and there wasn't a single thing that went wrong the entire time. We went to Amboseli, Mount Kenya, Samburu, Ol Pejeta, Nakuru and Masai Mara and loved that each place had its unique feeling, scenery and range of wildlife. We were lucky enough to see the entire Big 5, and though it was technically the rainy season, barely had any rain over the 9 days.

The hotels were luxurious, Beacon's service was impeccable and the wildlife viewing was second to none. Antony knew everything there was to know about the plants and animals as well as about the towns we drove through as we went from park to park. He was a great driver and a great guide - Antony not only got us in perfect positions to see the animals, but he also knew where they were going, which allowed us to track them well rather than trying to catch up to them.

Overall, our 9 day trip to Kenya was perfect. We'd like to thank Antony and Beacon Safaris again for an unforgettable trip - we would recommend Beacon to anyone!!

Amazing Kenyan Safari!
5/5

Visiting Africa and going on a Safari for the first time, you really don’t know what to expect. Through Safaribookings.com we quickly zoomed in on Beacon Safaris as they offered the locations we were looking for and they had amazing reviews. Robert, the owner of Beacon, was quick to respond and very flexible in accommodating our special requests: we started out with an 8-Day Best of Kenya Safari and ended up with 9 fantastic days through which we feel we got a good understanding of the true Kenya.

In the morning of our first safari day we were picked up at the hotel by our guide Daniel. We were going to spend the majority of the next 9 days with him, so no wonder we were a little anxious to meet him: what if we didn’t get along - that would make it 9 very long days... Now, Daniel turned out to be one of the nicest persons we have ever met; very knowledgeable about his country, it’s parks and animals, and it’s customs and politics (when spending so much time together you do get to speak about topics other than the Big Five). Make no mistake about it, your guide is the most essential part of a successful safari and Daniel is the best ambassador his company and his country could ever ask for.

And how did our safari go? We saw everything we came for - and several times. We saw big families of elephants and giraffes grassing the savannah and crossing rivers. We saw a leopard with her cub chilling in an old tree top. We saw lions hunting and eating a wildebeest. We saw a huge group of hippos hanging out in a mud pool. We saw lots of black and white rhinos (in Ol Pejeta we even got to feed sugar canes to the old and blind black rhino Baraka). We saw thousands and thousands of wildebeest migrating from the Serengeti through the Masai Mara - including their spectacular crossing of the Mara river. And we saw cheetahs, buffalos, gazelles, crocodiles, hyeanas and many, many other animals. Daniel made sure we were always at the right spot at the right time!

Finally, a few pieces of advice:
Make sure you go for the Land Cruiser; is does cost a little extra but it is money well spend (regardless, however, you will be aching all over after the long and bumpy drives).
Make sure you pick a least a few tented camp; it’s a unique experience to hear the sounds of the savannah at night and you feel as if you’re almost sleeping with the wild animals (which is a good thing on a safari...).
Be aware that the roads in Kenya can be as bad as you can possibly imagine. As a consequence, getting from one park to another will be quite time consuming.
And make sure you ask for Daniel to be your guide and everything will be just fine!
