Epic journey and wonderful experiance
5/5

We have booked two weeks safari with Baboonbudget, including Kenya and Tanzania parks. That was an excellent choice for our first trip to East Africa and our first safari. The first lesson we learned is that your safari depends entirely on your guide. Because of that fact, we had an incredible safari thanks to Boniface. Our whole two-week journey started unbelievably when Boniface picked us up in front of our hotel and when we saw that our van was empty. We booked a shared tour, but we were alone in our van together with Boniface for the whole ten days in Kenya. At the start of the journey, we explained that we would like to learn about animals and about history, tribes, way of life, and everything that we can learn about Kenya. Boniface gave his best to explain to us everything, from different regions' agriculture relations between the tribe up to complex Kenyan political history. He spent days answering our numerous questions, so when he left us on the Namanga border, we had a feeling that we learned a lot about Kenya. Safari and parks experience was a wonderful experience since Boniface's trained eye and constant will to see behind the next hill allowed us to spot most of the wildlife habitat. We learned a lot from them about birds, wildlife, different vegetation and climate, animal habits, so we had some basic knowledge for every safari after this. We didn't have any problems regarding camps and hotels since we booked a budget tour and were staying in budget accommodations. Only the camp in Amboseli was below our expectations and needed some serious repairs. Still, all the other places were quite lovely and comfortable. We had a great time in Tanzania also, but we can't compare it to our experience with you in Kenya. We spent all the time in Tanzania comparing parks, people and especially the tour. In Tanzania, we had that (obviously many times practised) tour with probably the same sentences on the same spots, with no additional questions. When you add sleeping in tents in thunderstorms in front of empty tented houses, you can freely say that there wasn't much for us besides Tanzania's great food and parks. But still, that was enough. Maybe Boniface set some high standards of a great guide with whom we left Kenya with a feeling of the understanding country, culture, parks, tribes, animals, and politics. Since we didn't get the same in Kenya, we were a bit disappointed. Still, altogether, we spent a perfect two weeks on this journey with Baboon budget safaris. Thanks Boni!

Great safari trip in Kenya with Baboon early February 2022
5/5

I booked a 9-days group safari in February 2022 (Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, Amboseli, both Tsavo parks) plus a 5 days stay at Diani Beach. Baboon boss Dennis was very reactive during the booking process and all my wishes were taken into consideration, i.e. I also visited Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Giraffe Centre in Nairobi and some other locations I wanted to see before safari departure. It was a marvellous journey with Maasai Mara in a luxurious green and many many animals in each park (yes, I saw the Big Five ;-) . My guide Mike Mutunga is a very reliable and knowledgeable guide and was eager to show me the maximum of animals. Although I booked a group safari, there was only one tourist with me during 3 days and most of the time I had the van/driver for myself. The accommodation was budget category, but that was ok for me (good beds and food) and staff was always helpful. I then took the train from Mombasi to Nairobi to catch my return flight and I can recommend this way of transport as well (very modern and clean and right on time).
So I can really recommend Baboon Safari in Kenya.

100% recommendable.
5/5

My 10 day safari experience was outstanding and memorable. (Kenya: Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli; Tanzania: Serengeti Ngorongoro Crater)
I communicated by mail with Dennis prior to book the safari and he was very dilligent answering and explaining me all my inquiries.
The guide in Kenya was Joseph, very experienced, professional and expertise person, I'm completely sure not only me, but the entire group had a great time during the different game drives.
When I crossed to Tanzania for the last 4 days all the organization from Baboon kept being excellent.
All the accommodations suited the price, regardless the backcountry experience a safari is.

Great experience
5/5

I booked a 4 day tour (Masai Mara + Lake Nakuru) with baboon Safari and everything went smooth from the the very beginning, Dennis was quick to answer all my questions prior to arriving in Kenya.
Our guide throughout the tour was Anthony and we could not have been happier about it, he was very attentive to our needs, always making sure everything was going as planned and many times going out of his way to make us have the best time possible. Even after my hundreds of questions throughout the tour Anthony always kept his positive attitude and made sure everything went smooth until the very last minute of the tour. Thanks Anthony.
Baboon Safari lived up to the expectations and I would easily recommend them and if you are lucky enough, Anthony will be your guide.

Efficient and very helpful. Excellent communication skills
5/5

Let me start of by mentioning that this was our 1st time in kenya.
It was all that we'd imagined and much more. Mr. Anthony our tour guide was spectacular with a vast knowledge of the animals and birds around MASAI MARA, Lakes Naivasha /Nkuru and Amboseli , he even knew reptiles to our surprise.
The trip wouldnt be what it was if it wasn't for him. Highly recommended.

The staying accommodation / food was as per budget so nothing to complain or brag about.

Over all an amazing experience.

Thank you.

It was a professional and well organised tour operator!
5/5

In the beginning to the end baboon safaris was highly professional. I saw all of the animals that I wanted to see and many more. My guide Anthony and James were amazing. So highly professional and educational. I learned so much and so so much. I booked the mid-range budget tour and was not disappointed at all. All of the accommodations were great, the cars were great, and the guides were professional. I recommend the safari!

Well organized
5/5

A very complete safari, not only Masai Mara, but also Nakuru and Navaisha (for 30$ extra you take a boat around). We were also lucky to be guided by Boniface, a true expert and an enthusiast of Kenyan fauna who did not hesitate to take us wherever it was necessary to observe the animals of the Masai Mara.
Note: If you pay in euro the will charge you the market exchange to Kenyan chelins
