Amazing Trek through East Africa
5/5

Lush Africa Safari was a superior safari company to work with. I planned my East African adventure with Abbey to get the ideal experience I was looking for. I am a solo traveler. I had booked a “15 day “Big 5” safari and Zanzibar beaches” and traveled to Kigali, Rwanda and Uganda to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to trek with Mountain Gorillas with my guide Cyprien. We did a city tour of Kigali and had an amazing day! He was so kind and friendly.
Next, I flew to Nairobi Kenya and met my guide Sammy. He was an excellent driver and guide. We ventured into the Masai Mara to get photos of the “Big 5” and more. He navigated the dirt and muddy terrain like a professional! He was fantastic ! We then drove through the Rift Valley and then I crossed the border into Tanzania. That’s where I met Joesph my Tanzania guide. Joesph was safe driver and professional. He navigated the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater and conservation area with ease. I did the Serengeti Hot Air Balloon Ride with Miracle Safari with Moses and he was great also! Mid way through my safari I decided to make a slight change to my itinerary with my hotel to stay at in Arusha and Abbey was happy to see that I had an amazing time and he made the change I requested. After Arusha, I flew to Zanzibar and stayed in a Beach front bungalow that Abbey arranged for me on Nungwi Beach. The waves literally crashed right under my deck! The beach was absolutely beautiful.
Thank you so much Lush Africa Safari for a wonderful experience of a lifetime through East Africa!

Abi was proactive when organising our travels to Africa, answered all questions promptly
5/5

Our safari through Kenya and Tazania was 10 nights, and during our stay our local tour guides were absolutely fantastic. The local guides in both countries made our group of 4 girls very comfortable and we felt safe and well looked after at all times. The guides were patient with all our questions, definitely seemed very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best Safari experience. Based on this customer service, and how well all the hotels and transport was organised, I wouldn't hesitate recommending Lush Africa Safari's to anyone out there interested. Living through a safari was a life highlight!

Unforgettable Safari
5/5

My recent safari with Lush was extraordinary! Our tour guides Sammy (in Kenya) and Joseph (in Tanzania) were very knowledgeable, comfortable accommodation, every detail was impeccable. The open-roof vehicles provided stunning views of wildlife, went above and beyond to get us the perfect angle. If you're looking for a top-notch safari with a responsible and authentic touch, Lush is the one to choose!

Wonderful, and everything on point
5/5

we booked with Lush because of the wonderful itinerary we were given. This was our first trip to Africa, so their was some hesitancy, but the reviews and feedback from other travelers was invaluable to planning the trip. We were not disappointed!. Initially we were looking at Tanzania and Kenya, but after talking to Abbey we extended to Uganda, as being Ugandan, he knows that country particularly well. Abbey offered many helpful suggestions and insights.

The vehicles were relatively new, and got us threw some pretty rough roads, with an "African massage". Joseph was a wonderful guide and got our African trip off to a great start. Peter was a master tracker and driver, and had a nose for finding the animals. Robert went out of his way to be helpful. Lake Navaisha was a wonderful addition particularly for Christmas, and Amboseli turned out to be another highlight, as Peter got us close to a lion family near dusk. Every day was wonderful, and the safari ended far too quickly!

Deceiving, not professional, stay away!
1/5

Abbey from Lush African Safari responded to my Safari booking request for a quote with a very expensive package for a 14 days Kenya and Tanzania safari. The quote had places’ names and pics of cars and accommodation included. Upon arrival to Kenya I found out none of the places he quoted were actually available at the time he sent me that quote. In fact, he did ask me to pay immediately to book everything, which I did, but it was just a scam since the places weren’t available. And he hired local companies that book something else. He even tried to put me in a minivan instead of a landrover in Kenya, which at least at last minute the local company was able to fix. In Amboseli, he sent me to a tent instead of a nice 3-4 start hotel I paid, I was scared for my life there. Not a joke. Solo woman traveler I paid more to him, a company based in USA, to guarantee that this situation didn’t happen :(
In Tanzania he tried to send me to another tent and I was literally crying that day contacting the Safaribooking team begging to please not to be sent to a tent. I paid for a nice hotel, he was making up all sort of reasons why me going to a tent was best for me, among them so I can see the great migration.
He didn’t even know I already saw the great migration in Kenya!
Finally they sent me to a hotel, not like the one promised but I was so grateful for having walls and feel safe that I didn’t mind. Both local tours realized what was been done and were very sympathetic. I’d strongly recommend to use those companies directly, they will be honest and not lure you with some pics. I paid thousands of dollars to stay in the nicest hotel with great food and they sent me to a tent without electricity, shower outside that actually didn’t work, he gave me a $300 refund which felt like an insult, but I was powerless.
When I told him he couldn’t just go against the client wishes and going to a tent instead of nice accommodations I booked were not my wishes he said: “we are going to have to agree to disagree”. So he feels he is in power to sent you wherever he wants regardless of what you paid for. Here is another, when I send the pics he sent me of a fancy place that I paid for and the ones of the horrible tent he was sending me to, his response was:”some places take deceiving pics”. We have internet and the local tours were honest so they did told me how wonderful the other places I had in the quote were and how they didn’t compared in location food quality and overall with what I was given.
