Unforgettable 8-day tour from Nairobi to Watamu with Daniel
We booked a 7 day private tour from Nairobi to Mombasa and added an extra day to visit Tsavo West en route, thus making it an 8 day tour of Masai Mara, Nakuru, Naivasha, Amboseli, Tsavo West and Tsavo East. Purity was great in organizing everything from day 1. We opted for a 4x4 jeep and budget accommodation, which was more than adequate, especially tented camps in Masai Mara and Amboseli and the lodges in Tsavo West and Tsavo East which simply took our breath away.
Special thanks goes to our driver guide Daniel, who made our journey really unforgettable. Punctual from day one, his timing for departure and arrival times across different destinations was impeccable, he was fearless on the road and we were really impressed how he made sure our 4x4 was in good condition every day, by checking tire pressure and drivetrain after every park - making sure the vehicle was clean and in good condition throughout our cross-country trip. He is someone you can trust to keep you safe even when the aggressive elephants of Tsavo come too close, showing his qualities as an experienced guide. His knowledge of animal species and their behavioral patterns was really impressive and he really put in an effort to make sure we see the Big 5 and much much more. We would definitely do it again, next time maybe visiting less parks and staying longer in each. Until next time, Bienvenido and Daniel!

3 Day Safari to Amboseli National Park
Our experience was absolutely fantastic. I wasn't sure where to start searching for safari's and to be honest was a little weary of the vast number of companies and who might or might not be legit. Using SafariBooking was a great tool for us to find a tour that was perfect for our schedule. We had to be in Rwanda for business and decided to travel a few days earlier to get in a quick safari.
Right from the start, communication and responses were quick and provided all the information requested. I didn't find any official website so this is where the skepticism came into play, but the night before we received contact information for our driver and he was there to pick us up at our scheduled time. Due to the tour we booked and timing, we managed to have a tour bus just for the two of us (it was just my mother and I traveling).
Travel out to the park was an experience, not being used to how travellers drive on the road took a while to get use to. Travel out to the park took about 5 hours and we stopped just off the main road at this store/market type place that had souvenirs from the local villages. We arrived at the park on day 1 about noon so we were able to drop our bags off and head to the dining room for lunch. We decided to upgrade for the superior lodging (Serena Lodge) and it was a great experience. Rooms were nice and spacious, clean and we had netting round the beds. We didn't get a chance to lay by the pool. In the morning before heading out for the morning game drive we did have some animals just off the property near the back terrace.
Our schedule for the 3 days were as follows: Day 1 - 7am pick up, noon arrival at lodge, 6pm game drive, Day 2 - 6am - 8/9 game drive returning for breakfast then 6pm game drive. Day 3 - 6-8 game drive, 11 am departure for Nairobi Airport. We got 4 game drives and we felt this was enough for us given the short time we had. We saw all the animals we wanted to except the cheetah, we saw giraffes, elephants were lucky enough to get close to a lion and lioness.
Overall we had a great experience for what we paid and would highly recommend to anyone interested.

Clear communication and an exciting ride!
I needed some accommodation for the trip so I emailed them a few months before. They were flexible about my needs and the communication went really smooth and everything was clear. Planning went well. I was expecting the unexpected on the day of the trip, but our guide Jed was super knowledgeable about the experience so I felt taken care of. We had interesting conversations during the lunch stop as well! I hope Jed is doing well, and absolutely recommend this tour.

I took 4D3N Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru safari.
On the last day, they listened to my request to be in time for the flight leaving Kenya in the evening, so they actually arranged to arrive at the airport 4 hours before departure.
Also, even though 40 minutes passed on the first day of the safari, there was no pick-up, but when I made an inquiry, they responded sincerely and I was able to participate in the tour safely.
Booked a 5day safari the night before and they nailed it
Our driven and guide Clinton was a stud 10/10 recommend. Pretty sure we saw the big 5 in one full day my dude knew what he was doing to say the least. He got us so close to the animals it was crazy. This man drove us into the middle of nowhere and all over the country for a week and never checked a gps once. Helped us book train tickets because we could not use mpesa and dropped us off safe. A trustworthy and reputable ambassador for the company

Excellent tour operator and guides with all arrangements carried out smoothly and efficiently.
We took the eleven-day Kenyan/Tanzanian Safari, and it was indeed the most wonderful experience of my life. I went with my 11-year old grandson. Bienvenido Kenya Tour and Safaris took care of us throughout the trip. Transport showed up when expected, our guides were excellent - particularly Patrick in Kenya - and the arrangements were exactly as planned.
We saw an enormous number of animals - all the big five - as well as many other species. We also got very close to numerous lions, elephants and other creatures. It was an extremely thrilling experience.
Accommodation ranged from good to very basic. Be prepared to rough it occasionally! There was also quite a bit more driving involved that I had anticipated.
For those considering this safari, the more research you do up front the better! I would have liked a bit more information about accommodation options, as well as a bit more guidance on what to bring, what not to bring, etc. In the end we just took very small bags, with only three changes of clothes, binoculars (a must!), guide book, cellphone and a warm jacket as nights can get chilly. This all proved to be more than adequate, and having small, light bags was a bonus, as we were constantly moving from one place to another. We were advised to bring "safari style" clothes, but that was not necessary! Also, take a small towel - some of the camps do NOT provide towels and cold showers with no way of drying off is not all that pleasant.
I would highly recommend Bienvenido Tours. Good value, no hidden extras and Purity is very responsive and helpful.

4-day unforgettable experience!
We enjoyed 4-day safari trip from Nairobi through Abmoseli National park, Tsavo National Park and ended in Mombasa.
Our communication with the contact person Purity was very easy, quick and efficient - he gave useful advices and did it also in evenings and weekends!
Our driver Kitavi was really nice and pleasant person who did his job with full responsibility and took care that we really see as much as possible. He was also an exciting conversation companion so that we could get to know so much interesting about Kenya.
Those were unforgettable days and amazing experience!
Thank you very much "Bienvenido Kenya Tours and Safaris", you made our first experience in Kenya so great and wonderful!

We booked a 6-day trip from Nairobi. All our questions we had in advanced were answered very quickly. On the day our Safari started the pick up at the hotel was great, and we were informed of the whole trip in their office.
The whole 6 days we were treated amazingly, the tourguide (Mansoor) was just great. He knew everything and tried his best the whole trip to show us as many places and as many animals as possible.
I cannot recommend Bienvenido Kenya Tours and Safaris more!
