Geoffrey best driver guide
5/5

Geoffrey enhanced our travel experience beyond our expectations!
I warmly recommend him !

Excellent management and decent price
5/5

I was trying to book safari over safaribooking and sent 5 requests. Steve was the one (and actually the only) who wrote me at Whatsapp, answering all of my questions.
Our flight from Cairo to Nairobi was delayed so, first, I change a day of safari without any extra fees and later, being late on arrival, was taken by driver straight to the group which had already left the town by the time of my arrival.
All this time Steve was there, on the phone, helping and supporting.
The safari was amazing, we saw 4/5 of the "big 5" (bad season for rhino). Our driver and guide, Max, is extremely professional. He's doing safari for the last 15 years so basically knows everything about everything. Every single question we asked was answered straight and fully.
The accomodations and the food aren't chic. Don't expect 5 star camp neither Micheline star restaurant, but the camp staff is absolutely charming.
Anyways it was extremely great and I enjoyed every single moment!

Great tour for Masai Mara
5/5

From the beginning, Steve was very communicative and responded quickly to every single question we had. The driver picked us up at our hotel just as planned and we joined a small safari and became close friends with the other travelers (we were 4 in total). We had two different drivers, the first day driver knew where to find the best animals but did not communicate any additional info to us about the habits of the animals, so we didn't really get any background info on what we were seeing. The second day driver was excellent. He was extremely passionate about what we were seeing and doing, had incredible eyesight (he spotted a rhino deep in the bush that took us all forever to finally see!), and brought the details of the animals to life. It's an incredibly valuable price for what it all entailed. We have no complaints, just be weary of the Masai Village, in our opinion. It is interesting and worthwhile, but they hassled us left and right to buy things, lying about selling us lions teeth (it was a zebra bone), and plant-hand-dyed cloths (they were from factories in India), tried to charge us double the fee for the village tour than what the driver had told us to expect, and generally grossly overcharged on all of the items that they sold (but that's common in Kenya). You can easily opt out of the village tour to avoid these hassles though. Bring your own water despite the confirmation that it will be provided. Our guide did not have any for us. The accommodations were in a spacious camp with amazing hospitality from the staff. We absolutely fell in love with Masai Mara and hope to come back again soon.

Excellent Safari! We have met All big 5! incredible hospitality and care
5/5

It was the first safari in my life (7 days) Massai Mara, Naivasha, Hell's gate, Nakuru and Ambosei. I felt comfotable and safe during all week.
We have seen all big 5 amimals. Great communication with Steve, comfortable and fun game driving from Eric and the best logistic from Geoffrey. I can highly reccomended

Well Organized
5/5

Steve in the office was great to work with. I emailed him a billion times and he was always quick to respond to any question I had. He made the booking process user friendly. I travel a lot on my own and for work and so I know a bit about how to go about things, but just having that extra help and info about a place I had never been to from Steve made my experience that much better.

Our guide Gibson was awesome. He made sure we saw everything, the Big 5...well technically I spotted one of the five. LOL. It was easy going from place to place. It felt like I had a knowledgeable bodyguard with me the whole time as he is over 6ft tall. Not that we needed a bodyguard, everyone was pretty nice.

There were a few things that I personally didn't really like doing, but I am sure for some they would enjoy it. Those things were the little shops when you stop to use the washroom, I didn't want to buy any trinkets and I felt rude if I didn't. Or the ladies trying to sell you things at the gate into the reserves,
The other was the boat ride in Lake Naivasha. It just wasn't my thing, so to pay the extra money for it wasn't worth it for me. But again some people might love it. I am glad I experienced it, but I probably wouldn't do it again (the boat ride, not the safari, I would definitely do the safari again).

The things I listed above are such a small like 3% of the 97% awesomeness of the trip. I would recommend Bigtime Safaris Ltd to my friends. I hope you have a great experience and get to enjoy Kenya.

Thank you again to Steve and Gibson for a memorable trip.
