Wonderful private safari experience for eight days
5/5

We had an amazing safari of eight days to Amboseli, Lake Nakuru National Park, and Masai Mara!
From our initial interaction till we bade goodbye, we had a smooth experience.
We started our discussions with Robert in January 2020 for a safari in October 2020. Robert was able to understand our requirements, and provided us with a tailored itinerary for a private safari for my wife and myself in a safari van for our stated budget. He was flexible and responsive, and was able to tweak the plan to suit our liking. We made the advance payment in early February 2020. We had numerous questions being our first African safari, and Robert was patient enough to answer them all in a timely manner.

Then, the pandemic put a halt to our travel plans, and Robert was gracious enough to allow us to delay our trip by up to a year. During this period, we stayed in touch and Robert was responsive and kept the communication flowing.

When the travel restrictions eased out in late September of 2021, Robert was agile enough to bring back our safari from deep-freeze and was able to arrange for it in a short notice.

We finally did our safari from October 14, 2021 to October 21, 2021.
Robert also arranged to pick us up from the airport to our accommodation on October 13, 2021.

Patrick was our driver and guide for the safari. He was friendly and helpful, and understood our tastes and preferences. He drove safely at all times, and tackled some rough terrain during our safaris with great skill. He showed good judgement on what he could tackle with the vehicle and what he couldn't. As a result, we were never stuck anywhere during our drives.
We saw a ton of wildlife during our game drives.
Patrick was knowledgeable to explain them to us, and got some great sightings. He did a good mix of his own spotting and using the information from radio from the other guides.
His eye for spotting wildlife came to the fore when he spotted a leopard on the first evening's game drive in the Masai Mara. The leopard was well hidden within the foliage of the tree, but, Patrick's expert eyes spotted the kill stashed on one of the branches and spotted the hidden leopard!
At the Mara, he used information from the radio on the first full day game drive to ensure we saw some of the animals we'd never seen before. On the other days at Mara and at Amboseli, he avoided the crowds and ensured we had a great experience.
We had a fantastic experience at the accommodations we stayed at, and our dietary requirements were taken care of (vegetarian food).

Overall, we had an amazing and a memorable experience, and we greatly recommend Beacon Safaris!

Robert is a big cheat, do not trust Beacon.
1/5

He's been holding up mine and my group member's money for more than a year. We had cancelled the trip last year (well in advance) due to the unfortunate pandemic circumstances. His contract says that the company is supposed to refund the amount within 14-40 days. He's clearly not following the legal contract and this can be a serious matter for sure! Since last one year he has only been able to transfer way less than half of what he owes me. Sometimes he tells me that he has transferred and then when I don't receive the money he gives me another excuse. So it's a clear pattern, first he lies about the transfer and then he comes up with an excuse. I wonder for how long will I have to keep waiting for my own money! Just too sad and an extremely bitter experience. Maybe just because of this experience we'll never visit Nairobi for the impression he has formed.

Attention, it is a fraud, don't send them money
1/5

ATTENTION: FRAUD!!! Attenzione, non vi fidate, è una frode.
We had to cancel our trip because of the pandemic, we sent them an advanced payment and after 18 months they didnt' send us back our money in refund. They do not answer emails. So, do not trust them, they are scam, use other agencies. I am in touch with the Italian Embassy in Nairobi and the local Police, hope they will help me soon.
Dopo 18 mesi non ci hanno ancora restituito i soldi dell'anticipo che avevamo versato, per il viaggio che avevamo dovuto annullare a causa della pandemia. Non vi fidate di loro, non usateli, sono dei truffatori! Sono in contatto con l'Ambasciata Italiana a Nairobi e con la polizia, vediamo se risponderanno almeno a loro.

Great tour with excellent service.
5/5

Beacon Safaris did an amazing job with our honeymoon safari. Our driver Daniel was very knowledgeable and helped us have a great experience on our once in a lifetime trip. All of the hotels were good, and we would recommend Beacon to anyone looking to do a Kenyan Safari.

Due to COVID we had to reschedule multiple times, and Beacon was always very responsive, helpful, and accommodating. When planning we were able to easily customize our trip and go to each of the parks we were interested in.

Dream Vacation with Beacon Safaris
5/5

Masai Mara was our life time dream and thx to Robert and Anthony it came true. Our trip was initially planned for August 2020 but due to pandemic we had to postpone it. During the entire year we stayed in touch with Robert and finally completed the tour in August 2021. Robert was very helpful at every stage of planning. You can rely on him 100%.

Special thanks go to Anthony who was our driver and guide for 3 days. He is an excellent onroad / offroad driver and very kind man. He has great knowledge about the animals and birds. He was in communication with the rest of the guides during our entire journey so that we see the most we can during the game drivers. He was very helpful and patient when we had special requests such as 4am visit to hospital for PCR test OR drinks to buy from local shops in Masai Mara...

Overall, I highly recommend Beacon Safaris. You won't be disappointed...
