Excellent 6-day safari - we recommend

We booked a six day, two person (couple) private safari to Masai mara (2 nights), lake Nakuru (1 night) and Amboselli (2 night) in safari van. Charles was our guide and he could not be more experienced, interesting and knowledgeable, he knows every bit of the parks and works to track down the best sights - we saw a lion kill a buffalo!! The tour was very reliable and well organised, for example the car had a problem with the petrol filter but Charles got it fixed over a lunch break, and Kenyan run which is a plus for us. The only thing I personally would change about our trip is I would skip Lake Nakuru and probably add an extra day in Masai mara, as there was a lot of driving and although the lake was interesting it was the least of the three. We strongly recommend staying in the mara park itself as the unfenced lodges have animals that come in overnight! Having the van to ourselves was also great as you can move around to either side/back/front to see the animals best. We would certainly use Beacon Safaris again if we are able to come back to safari in Kenya.

We took the 7 day Taste of Kenya Safari using a Land cruiser and it was a wonderful experience. Robert was very responsive and helped us decide on the itinerary, replying to every little query through mail/WhatsApp promptly. Arrangements were great and the trip was organized well. And yes, it is better to opt for a land cruiser as compared to a van, We couldn't have asked for a better guide than Antony, a steady driver, hawk eyed where spotting was concerned, a kind human who made us very comfortable and took care to make the safari an unforgettable experience. This despite having to spend Christmas away from family on duty to take us on the safari. Beyond the call of duty, he helped retrieve a personal article which one of us had left behind at one of the resorts, through his network of friends and colleagues. We believe we saw an incredible variety of animals and birds thanks to his experience and timing.

The trip was well curated giving enough time at Masai Mara and Amboseli. Only thing to look out for in case one opts for mid range accommodation like we did is that - in Lake Nakuru if your accommodation is inside the park area, you can go in a second time (next day) with the same entry fee. If not you cannot unless you pay again. So it is advisable to check the itinerary and the location of your hotel. Masai Mara and Amboseli are no problems that way.

Thanks Beacon Safaris for a taste of incredible Kenya in the best way possible. Thanks Robert and Antony. Will surely recommended you guys to friends and family.

Brilliant safari trip with our guide Charles

We only contacted Beacon Safaris the day before but they were brilliant in accommodating us at the last minute. Charles, our guide was fantastic. He was obviously very experienced and had the knack of being in the right place. We were very fortunate to see almost every animal close up. Thanks for a great trip.

Reliable and helpful

Beacon organized perfectly a 6-days tour for us (2 people) from NBO to Amboseli and Tsavo. We were picked up at Wilson, then accomodated in the EKA hotel, in the Serena lodges of Amboseli and Tsavo West and finally in Ashnil of Tsavo East. Best lodging was Serena, compared to which Ashnil is relatively poor (terrible cuisine), and EKA is swanky and too expensive. Our guide Peter turned out to be a perfect driver, untiring and very concerned about our wishes. The tour itself was a good completion of our Kenyan stopover on the way up from South Africa. But neither the (badly neglected) Amboseli Park nor Tsavo East would stand any comparison with the Masai Mara.

We enjoyed every minute. The tour was organized in a perfect way. Robert answered to our e-mails very quick and adapted the tour as we wished. Thank you Robert!

And our guide, Ken, was amazing. He knows nearly everything and has eyes like an eagle to find all the hidden animals.
We had luck, because in low season there were hardly any other tourists, so we enjoyed the time even more.
Ken, thank you for this amazing tour. It was a pleasure and we had lots of fun :)

First Class Service

We are just back in Spain from our safari in Kenya with Beacon Safaris. From the very first contact with Robert, everything went very fine. He answered almost inmediately to any question/doubt and provided all type of alternatives and solutions to fit to our needs. We were travelling with two children (7 & 12) and we wanted to be sure that everything was going to be fine for them.
Once we arrived in Kenya, the attention provided was excellent starting from the pick-up at the airport. During the safari, the hotels were incredible well chosen by them. We chose the intermediate option and the food and the accomodation were much better than any idea we could have before hand.
Special mention to our guide Antony. He could incredibly spot any animal were we could see nothing. Excelent driver, guide and travel mate. We would definitely repeat the experience with them.
