Perfectly Customized Safari and a Fantastic Driver!!

We found Robert and Beacon Safaris through SafariBookings. Based on my initial inputs he sent us a proposed itinerary. We went back and forth for a couple months as we worked out the details for the start date, length of stay, hotels, and parks to visit. Robert did a great job being a single point of contact, answering all my questions, and arranging all the details.

We ended up going with a seven day safari for a family of five to include a 6 year old, 3 year old, and a 1 year old. Overall it was a fantastic and unforgettable experience.

Ken picked us up from our hotel near the airport and was a genuinely hospitable host for the reminder of our safari. He went out of his way to ensure the kids had a great time and could see out of the top which they absolutely loved (and so did we because we didnt have to hold them up).

Highly recommend the 4x4 land cruiser as the little ones had plenty of room to bouce/climb around, see out the windows if they want to sit, they can see out of the top to get a much better view of the animals, and easily nap on the longer car rides between parks.

We spent two days in three differnt parks and saw everything we could have ever of wished for from entire prides of lions to herds of elephants and everything in between.

Again, wonderful experience for our entire young family. Sopa hotel hospitality was great, our driver and wildlife extraordinaire Ken is the best host there is (multiple other drivers and staff went out of their way to tell us), and we are all sad to leave (but pretty exhausted as well).

Lastly, we selected to pay with credit card for added security and Robert sent us Pesapal links to my email. We paid 40% up from and 60% just before we arrived. No issues whatsoever.

If you are debating which company to chose for your safari, go with Beacon Safaris. Promise you wont regret it.

Thank you Robert and huge thank you to Ken for taking such great care of us!!!! You guys are the best.

Amazing safari experience

We had an amazing safari with Beacon Safaris!
Thank to Robert for quick responses and recommendations. And especially we would like to thank our guide Daniel for professional guiding and driving, he was always trying to show us the best in Masai mara.
Land cruiser 4*4 was comfortable enough and I'm sure it's much more better than van during rainy season in may. Although rain was only once at night.
Ashnil mara camp is perfect - the staff was polite and welcoming, location inside the park is very convenient for safari and food was very good.
The price for our safari was quite reasonable.
We are totally satisfied with the trip, we enjoyed our vacations in Masai mara very much!

Fantastic Safari with Beacon!

We took a 6 day safari through Beacon Safaris in March of 2023. We visited Masai Mara, Nakuru, and Amboseli National Parks. Overall, the safari was well organized and Beacon Safaris maintained excellent communication with us. They were willing to customize our tour to meet exactly what we were hoping for. Our driver, Daniel, was engaging and knowledgeable about the animals we saw. We saw many different varieties of animals and Daniel always positioned us in a great spot for viewing and allowed the animals to travel past our Land Cruiser. We chose the luxury tent option and the camps chosen by Beacon were excellent, especially Entim Mara! This safari exceeded our expectations and we certainly can’t wait to book another safari through Beacon Safaris.

A Chance of a life time trip!

If I could give 10 stars, I would. Beacon Safari is an excellent company that takes every measure to provide safety, adventure, excellent staffing and relaxation. The delux tents offered a high quality bed and personal bathroom with a shower included. One of the highlights was sitting on the front porch watching Mt. Kilamajoro in the background while the monkeys and boboons explore all around my husband and I. Shout out to THEE BEST safari driver/host DANIEL! From the on time pick up at our hotel in Nairobi, to the drop off at the camp site in Mansai, to the masterful hunt for wildlife in the safari, to the experinced driving 5 hours back to our hotel- Daniel was always there for us. Thank you so much Daniel for your personal touch! Daniel was kind, thoughtful, reliable, flexible and extrememly knowledgeable. My family will be back!

Beacon works with professionals who are extreamely well organized, punctual and highly skilled.

From the start, our communication with Beacon was easy, we received answers to our questions almost immediately. The program was clear and flexible, always tailored to our requirements. Their offer was fair. Our guide was highly qualified with 23 years experience. He answered all our questions thoroughly and did his best to visit and see maximum animals. If you want an unforgettable experience, without a doubt I recommend Beacon.

Great trip and experienced guide

We did a 3 day trip to Amboseli Nationalpark with Beacon Safaris and stayed at Kibo Safari Camp. The communication with Beacon Safaris was very easy and they always responded promptly to any requests and it was even possible to book the hot air balloon Safari last minute. The accommodation was great, staff was very nice and our driver and guide was great. A very experienced and considered guide who always allowed us to take our time to take pictures and it was a very relaxed trip overall.
