Amboseli park and Kibo camp
This was my first time visiting Amboseli, and my first time staying at a luxury camp (Kibo) with Bencia. I absolutely loved Kibo!! Amazing food and very comfortable in every sense. Our game drives were great, with George as driver/guide who is amazing!! We also got lucky with the weather and were able to see Mt. Kilimanjaro every day! The night sky/stars were also the best I’ve ever seen in Kenya. We visited a Maasai tribe nearby as well. Highly recommend the entire experience. This was also an appropriate amount of time to spend at this park - I wouldn’t recommend more days unless you wanted more time to relax at the beautiful Kibo camp, use their pool, etc.
Amazing experience with super nice guide
Booked the tour 3 days before our flight from Europe.
Alfred from the office was super relevant and fast.
We arrived in Nairobi and the guide took us to Amboseli Park for a 3 day tour. Excellent guide, funny, discreet and smart!
I will recommend this agency to anybody going in Kenya or Tanzania
I visited maasai Mara with bencia and I really enjoyed it,the services were actually the best and Bencia kept their word by making sure they delivered,food was in plenty, everything was greatly done and without Bencia my trip would have been boring but they did make it enjoyable.
It was the best safari of my life
They were to my expectations.. The travel,park,food and accommodation. Everything was great
It will be a long review, but here you'll have all the details of how it goes with Bencia africa because it's seems a bit tricky to find a good safari agency. We did a safari in Masai Mara with them in january, they sold us 15 hours and 30 minutes of game drive in three days (first evening, then full day, and last one during the last morning). We bought it 280usd (you can find cheaper in other agencies and probably with them also...) for transportation (2 ways from Nairobi), food and tent (like military ones with shower inside). First, we left Nairobi 2 hours late, so we arrive at the Gate of the park, 2 hours late the first day (of course...). The van was so old it broken down the first day 200 meters after the entrance of the park, so no game drive the first day. The second one the program said "game drive from 8.00am to 6.30pm". At 5.00pm the driver reached the exit gate, we asked why so early, he answered "it's a rule setted by the park"... And the next morning the program said "game drive from 6.30am to 9.30am", we did just one hour and then again the driver tried to explain that we were too late to continue the game drive... The driver doesn't care about the program (and passengers), so we requested the company to compensate the hours we didn't do inside the park, they sold 15hours and we did 10 !! Here start their funny answers. They first answered "the 2 people we shared the van with were happy, so the company cannot make any refund". I replied that we don't care about the feelings of the others in the van, we had a contract and nothing of it was respected. So they answered "our driver made a detour of 40 minutes, so we consider this as a compensation". Then i replied that we never asked for a detour but to be dropped on the way back to Nairobi to take a local bus to naivasha (but the driver brought us to naivasha even if i told him that we'll find a bus). Just for you to know, public transportation for Naivasha is about 1 dollar from there... So they tried to compensate the 5 hours in the park they stole us with a one dollar drive.
Then we continue to talk with them and finally they said that there will be a refund but we wait and we wait and nothing happen.
We just leave one star for George the cooker who's a really nice person and the only one with honesty in this company.
If you want more informations about our experience, don't hesitate to contact me. I have the screenshots of the WhatsApp conversation as a proof of what i write, and that i don't exagerate/inflate the reality. It's just for you to not make same bad choice than us.
