Choose from the big 5 what you want to see and you will see...

This was a great choice and an amazing experience. I chose a 7-day safari with Baboon Budget Safaris and enjoyed every second. Our guide Joseph was completely dedicated to providing the best of every national park and every place we visited. He also took care of our safety by showing us local life. During the tour he gave us enough private space to enjoy, and in the meantime, he gave us the best experience of Kenya. I saw so many animals and the safari was highlight of my trip around Kenya. Everything was well planned and it was as defined at the beginning of the tour. I will highly recommend them to all my friends. Also, I will come back and choose the Baboon Budget Safaris again for the other parts of Kenia. I have new friends in Kenya: Baboon Budget Safaris and Joseph!!!

Experience of a lifetime

We went to kenya during covid in july 2021 and it was one of the best experiences ever.. Baboon budget safari were super nice and helpful throughout the whole trip.. They made sure that our itenerary is well organized and tailored, so that we will be covering all the attractions in our tight timeline... The best part of the trip was our guide Anthony.. Truly a genuine guy who made sure we wont miss out on anything during our game drives.. He was always going the extra mile to make sure we encounter all types of wildlife and was very informative and gave an in breadth explanation of everything during the game drives which really took our experience to a whole new level... Definately recommend kenya and baboon safari as a must do on your bucket list

I originally booked through a different safari company but as a solo traveler, I guess they didn't want to provide the service so it appears they kind of "sold me off" to Baboon Budget Safaris. I'm so glad they did!

My driver was Anthony and we had another solo traveler like me on the safari. Anthony is a great driver, super knowledgeable, funny and was constantly making sure we were doing okay. We stayed at Miti Mingi Eco Camp. I was pleasantly surprised. The food is good, owner was friendly, bed was comfortable, pillows were nice, shower was hot, electricity worked fine, etc. He even let me borrow a towel because I forgot mine.

Both days with game drives were beyond words. We saw gazelles, giraffes, cheetahs, leopard, water buffalo, elephants, jackos, hyenas, elends, wildebeasts, warthogs, etc. But the true highlight came after Anthony worked his magic and we found a pride of lions. Shortly after we arrived, they made an attempt to kill a huge water buffalo! The hunt was unsuccessful but it was still a site I will never forget. We had a nice picnic in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Anthony knows everything about what we saw; the animals, plants, birds, etc. He could answer all our questions.

On the last day, we had a nice visit at a Maasai village. Also, such a wonderful experience.

I will return to Kenya again. This was my second time here already but it was my first safari experience. I want to come back again with my family. When I do, I will not even consider booking with another company. I will book with Baboon Budget Safaris and I will request that Anthony be our guide. I highly recommend this company who wants to have amazing memories of their time in the Maasai Mara.

Esperienza Magica!

Perfect experience from start to finish! Ever since I contacted Baboonbudget by email to ask (a thousand) questions, they have been helpful and quick to respond and have been able to offer me an experience tailored to my requests. Marvin, my guide for the 4 days, is not only competent and will answer all your questions about the parks, but he is excellent company, and will also answer your questions about Kenya: an interesting person, helpful and kind.
The parks then, what can I say ... magical!

11 Day Budget Safari in Kenya and Tanzania

I had a great time on my safari. It lived up to all of my expectations, and I was able to see all of the Big Five! From the beginning, Dennis was extremely attentive and responded to my emails sometimes within minutes. The price offered was a great value and far better than the other operators. I felt like I was in great hands with Dennis and Baboon Budget Safaris and would happily recommend them to anyone looking to book a safari.

The combined safari is actually two separate safaris, each with a different driver/guide. In between, you’ll take a shuttle from Kenya to Tanzania.

The driver/guide for Kenya was Patrick and for Tanzania was Ali. Both were experienced, professional, patient, and charming. They know how to find the animals and help you get the best experience.

The accommodations and food for the budget safari were better then I expected. I slept well most nights and we always ate decently. They were a bit better on the Tanzania side compared to in Kenya.

A few things to be aware of are:

A lot of time unavoidably gets spent on driving from one place to the other, so don’t expect to see animals all day every day. There’s a lot of distance to cover and that means a lot of driving.

Crossing the border into Tanzania was my least favorite part. Upon arrival I was told I needed $50 USD cash for the visa, as well as a yellow fever certificate, and a printed COVID certificate. I was not prepared for that, so getting the cash and printing the certificate was a huge hassle. An agent from the shuttle bus company will be there to assist you, but his English wasn’t great and I had no means of calling Dennis in case I needed help. There is some room for improvement here, but anyway, eventually I made it across and the rest of the trip was fantastic.

Book with confidence with Dennis and Baboon Budget Safaris!

Very well organised and awesome guide

I went on 11 days safari in Kenya and Tanzania in August 2020 and had a really good experience!

All the communication by email and messages was replied efficiently and schedules worked as agreed.
Our guide was very professional and had huge amount of knowledge about the local culture and nature. Thank you Joseph for making Kenya experience amazing!

Tanzania safari was a separete trip but transfer from the border to Arusha went well and Tanzania crew took good care of me :)

Overall im very happy with the experience and the company.
Thank you!!
