Friendly and respectful to the animals and park
I went to samburu and had an amazing time. Daniel was extremely respectful towards the animals so there was no chasing after any (which I hate) or making animals distressed. We saw a lot and had a great laugh doing it. Edith had made booking very effortless and was a great source to answer questions before I went. Thank you!

The whole experience was an absolute dream!
Kenya Safari Arcade went above and beyond our expectations. Coming from Canada and not being familiar with the process and how to navigate the various offerings, Kenya Safari Arcade walked us through every step of the way. Communications were clear and concise with plenty of options made available to us within our budget. We decided to go with Lerai Safari Camp and it did not disappoint. The staff were amazing (Mandela, Daniel, Jamblick) made it seem like the entire camp was reserved for just the two of us. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in experiencing a safari in Masai Mara.

The best tour and safari guide you can get!
We went on an 8 day safari through Samburu, Sweetwaters, Aberdares, Lake Elementaita and Masai Mara. The company was extremely helpful and patient in tailoring the safari to our wishes, and also provided really helpful advice which made the travel times between places shorter and we got to spend more time at the different locations. We had the most wonderful driver; David; who managed to find every animal you could wish to see in the parks. It was evident that he was very experienced and knowledgeable, we learnt so much from him and he was such a pleasant person to be around. Also, from getting to know which animals we liked the most, he actually even took a detour to another lake to ensure we saw large groups of hippos. We saw everything from lions, leopards, chitas, elephants, black rhinos, white rhinos, hippos, zebras, buffalos, hyenas (even bathing ones!), warthog, an abundance of all kinds of antilopes and birds. We also stayed some very nice tented camps and hotels, all catered to our budget.
I cannot recommend this company enough! If we ever get the chance to go to Kenya again, I will be going with them. The value for money is increadibly good, but what's even more worthful is being with a company and guide that you can fully trust, learn from and become friends with.

Excellent safari and beach holiday
We are a family of 4 from the UK and recently stayed in the Masai Mara doing a 4 day 3 night trip followed by a stay at Diani Beach organised with Edith of Kenya Safari Arcade. The communications were excellent, she delivered as promised and accommodated changes to the booking in the build up to the holiday (we changed from a land transfer from Nairobi to air transfers). The staff on safari and the beach hotel (Basecamp Explorer & Kole Kole Baobob) where exceptional, in fact all Kenyans could not do enough for us.
We saw 4 of the big 5 (no Rhino) and masses of animals on safari and even when we got caught in the mother of all thunderstorms, our guides got us back skilfully adding to the drama of safari.
I was nervous using a tour operator I had never met but, based on a referral, we went ahead and Edith delivered fully even meeting us for a meal on our trip back through Nairobi on the way home. We could not recommend her enough.
We felt the safari first was the right option, fly to the camps if you can, do the village visit in Masai Mara and, unless you are a diving expert, you will find the snorkelling in Diana worthwhile although felt the locals do need to respect the coral better.

We arranged our 6 days Kenya tour via correspondence with Edith. She was very helpful and responded to our inquiry very promptly.
The 6 day tour was awesome, we had an amazing driver Sammi who got us up close to the action of the lion and cheetahs eating their kill. We had herds of elephants just casually crossing past our vehicle which was a breathtaking experience to see. Because of Sammi, we got the opportunity to take soo many beautiful photos.
We highly recommend safari arcade.

Amazing very well organized 6 days safari in Kenya
I opted for the budget option for 680 USD, which is an avarage price in Nairobi and most of the travel agencies will group people together for a tour. We were 7 people in a mini van for a 6 days safari in Kenya. The driver and guide was excellent, he really knew a lot about animals and made an unforgettable trip for us. We visited 3 national parks in 6 days , but also spent a lot of time on the road travelling from one national park to the other. The accomodation is basic, if you have the budget go for higher quality accomodations because the lodges in Kenya are amazing. I would highly recommend this trip to anybody, it was well organized and you can see lot of animals like in the Lion King movie (we saw so many elephants, zebras, cheetas, baby lions, wildbeasts, buffalos, ect.) in beautiful Kenya

Me and my husband were looking for a Safari Operator, which offers a mid-range safari & covers some specific National Parks of Kenya. Therefore we used safari bookings.com. This is how we found Kenya Safari Arcade with good reviews. Finally we booked the "6-Day Masai Mara, Nakuru and Amboseli" via Edith. A really good decision! Everything went very smooth: she answered all our questions and also the payment went without any troubles.
We were very satisfied with the chosen accommodations, especially with the Basecamp Masai :-))))
And our Guide David was also a really nice guy! The only thing, which can be improved a bit is the minivan. On some bumpy roads it was really not that comfortable.
Altogether: We can really recommend Kenya Safari Arcade and would also choose this Operator again.

I highly recommend Kenya Safari Arcade. Everything was perfect with them. I travelled alone, and they organized the transfer to the airport, the flight and the camp booking. I chose a 3 day safari to Masai Mara and it was wonderful. The flight was the best option for me, because it was a short stay. The camp was beyond my expectations, I stayed at Ilkeliani Camp and it was fantastic. The staff was very kind, the tents were clean, comfortable and very well decorated, as well as common spaces. The food was excellent, I had to congratulate the chef when I left! I was also very lucky with my driver, Joseph was very dedicated and I could see all the big animals! I definitely do the same choice if I go again!

Amazing adventure- loved our driver!
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day trip to Maasai Mara. Our driver, Stanley, was absolutely wonderful. He worked hard to show us the beauty of Kenya and went above and beyond to help us with numerous travel details after the safari since we were unfamiliar with Kenya.
We also enjoyed staying in the Simba Oryx camp. The staff was so friendly, and the views of the Maasai mara from our tent were breathtaking. The food was also delicious!
Suggestion- wear clothing for heat on the drive out of Nairobi! It is a long, hot, and dusty drive and the vehicle does not have AC. We would have taken surgical masks for breathing, and not worn long pants if we had known in advance. Be prepared for a very bumpy ride too :)
Thanks Stanley and Edith for a wonderful time!
