Unforgettable Maasai Mara Experience with Balu Travel Agency – Highly Recommended!

I recently had the pleasure of embarking on a journey to the Maasai Mara, expertly arranged by Balu Travel Agency, and I am thrilled to say that the entire experience exceeded my expectations. From booking to the final moments, every aspect was meticulously planned, showcasing the agency's professionalism and care for its clients.

First and foremost, I must commend our guide, Joseph. As a native of the Maasai region, his intimate knowledge of the National Park was truly remarkable. Under his guidance, we not only observed a variety of wildlife in their natural habitat but were also fortunate enough to glimpse the elusive leopard and witness the awe-inspiring sight of a pride of lions feasting on a wild boar. Joseph's expertise and enthusiasm greatly enriched our safari experience.

In terms of accommodation, the MARA NDOVU LODGE provided an impeccable experience. The lodge's prime location, nestled close to the National Park, allowed us to immerse ourselves in the wonders of nature. The professionalism and warm hospitality of the front desk staff, restaurant personnel, and security left a lasting impression on me. It's hard to imagine a better place to stay in such a setting.

In summary, if you're planning a trip to the Maasai Mara, I wholeheartedly recommend Balu Travel Agency. Their commitment to professional service, coupled with the passionate guidance of their guides and the superior choice of accommodation, ensures a comfortable and thrilling adventure. Thank you, Balu Travel Agency, for crafting such a memorable experience for us!

Wonderful safari with a great guide

Our safari was really great! We wrote to several providers in advance and Morris (the owner of Balu) always replied very quickly! We also had lots of questions, including the wish to be picked up in Kisumu. He was able to answer all our questions and it was also possible to be picked up there for an extra charge. It was really great! He also provided us with our own "programme booklet" in which we could read everything in detail. On the first day of the safari we were picked up very punctually by our guide, Derrick. He was very reliable, very friendly, punctual and showed and explained so much about the national park. He also knew all about the animals and had a wealth of knowledge about the national park, its inhabitants and Kenya. We were also able to express our own wishes (as example the departure time) and ask questions about everything. Derrick was always very flexible and explained everything to us in detail. We had a really great time with him and are grateful for his patience and friendly manner. Morris also asked us every day how we were doing and whether everything was to our satisfaction. We booked the 4-day tour with Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru in the safari van. This proved to be a great combination as we were able to spot the big 5 and many more animals. You can also see a lot of the country on the journeys and the van is very comfortable. In Masai Mara NP we stayed at Jambo Mara Safari Lodge and in Lake Nakuru NP at Sopa Lodge, with magnificent views! Both accommodations were very clean and beautiful! We also have to emphasise that Morris really tried to organise everything perfectly for us and at a really fair price! We felt completely at ease the whole time from booking to arriving back in Nairobi and thoroughly enjoyed our time and the safari. We would definitely book with Balu Travel again next time!

Awesome, exhilarating, unforgettable, experience of a lifetime

We had the most incredible experience with Balu Travel. We booked a 4-day 3-night tour with stops in Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mari. We stay at the Ziwa Bush Lodge (awesome) and the Enkorok Mara (awesome, too). We did a few add ons like the hot air balloon and village tour. Everything was excellent. But what really made it beyond incredible was our tour guide, David. He made sure we enjoyed every minute. From his warm greeting at our hotel, to friendly conversation during the tour, to the hug and high five goodbye at the airport drop off, we could not have asked for anyone better. And let me tell you - his knowledge of the parks is amazing. He knows the animals, the terrain, the culture, and everything else about the area. We learned so much from him. He is engaging, friendly, knowledgeable, and just an all around pleasant person. Ask for David. You will be very happy you did. To summarize everything, I offer that everything is thoroughly organized up front (by Morris) and exceptionally well done along the way. Morris even showed up for a bit a short ways from the airport enroute to drop off to visit with us and to say farewell. That was an unexpected and thoughtful touch. We really could go on and on. We can’t say enough great things about this incredible experience. It was exciting. It was exhilarating. It was unique. It was educational. It was relaxing. It was thought provoking. It was unforgettable. Simply put, it was the experience of a lifetime. And, best of all, we made a good friend in David along the way. Thank you, Balu and Morris for everything. And a special thank you to David, who, to us, is so much more than a tour guide.
