Essential safari experience for affordable price
5/5

This was the best affordable offer we could find for a budget safari tour for 3 days and it went very well. We chose to stay at another hotel located nearby to the one normally used for this tour (booked separately, and the accommodation cost of the lodge normally used in this tour was deduced from the price). We saw lots of animals (although the great migration was already over by begin October). After the tour we planned to go to lake Naivasha, not to Nairobi. Much to our surprise (we were planning to go there by ourselves from Mai-Mahiu stop), the agency arranged for us to join a separate transfer with another group, who brought us to our next point so that we did not need to think how to get there by ourselves. At no extra cost. Naivasha is located on the way to Nakuru, another safari destination, so it was convenient. All negotiations with the agency went smoothly in watsapp and email. They communicate well and reply fast. So it is easy to customize the tour to large extent, if needed. Good value for money.

We were able to have a great safari without breaking the bank
5/5

We had a great experience with this company with the 6-day Masai Mara Lake Nakuru Amboseli Safari. We chose the mid-range accommodation option and were blown away by the quality of accommodation for the price we paid. They picked us up from Nairobi and did the Masai mara the first. It was amazing. possibly the #1 option for safari and it is the only park in Kenya where they allow off-roading which allows us to be right next to the animals. The Lion population is very high in this park and we saw some amazing encounters. We also saw Baffalo elephants and ostrich and Giraffe (Masai Giraffe). There is a wide variety of animals in this park including Crocodiles and Hippos right next to Kenya Tanzania border in the Mara River. Next, we headed out to Lake Nakuru and there we saw the tree-climbing lions of Lake Nakuru large numbers of Baboons and Black Rhino also the pink flamingoes of lake Nakuru. Next, we had a boat tour of Lake Navisha on the way which was optional. We are glad we took it as we saw the Fishing eagles perform and large groups of hippos out of the water. Next, we headed to Lake Amboselli and man what a backdrop to those majestic elephants in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This park is dominated by Amboselli Elephant s and it is hard to see any of the predators. The meeting with the Masai people was also a highlight of this tour. They used Vans instead of land cruisers for the tour and they were more than adequate.

We stayed in the following hotels - Jambo Mara (Masai Mara) Buhara Zenoni (Nakuru) and AA Lodge in Amboselli, They were all spectacular. The one negative was there was the safari lunches which were always Chicken a sandwich and a banana. It is understandable though it would have been difficult to pack anything else. The Guides/ drivers we had Derick and Edward were very good. Make sure you get a good knowledgeable guide as that is 90% of the enjoyment of the safari.

It was definitely a Bucket List item for us and most definitely the best vacation we ever had. Jambo Kenya,

INCREDIBLE!!!
5/5

Honestly, the company exceeded all our expectations. From the moment we contacted Kennedy everything was simple. It was hard for us to believe that everything happened so easily, and when we arrived at the Masai Mara we realized that we had chosen well. The tents are practical and comfortable even for traveling in large groups. Our guide, Moses, was amazing, always offering explanations, help, and looking for the best places to take photos. He clearly would choose them again and highly recommend.

Eye-opening
5/5

We went on a 3-day safari from Nairobi to Amboseli and Tsavo, to finish off in Diani. What an unforgettable adventure it was!!! Starting with the unique nature and the absolute beauty of the wildlife, and finishing with the terrific guide Nico who’s experience, sense of humour and kindness greatly facilitated our satisfaction, and ended up as a top highlight of our trip to Kenya. Benvenido was always very responsive, facilitating and super pleasant to deal with, so thank you for that! If we ever to go back again, it must be with you and Nico! Thanks so much:)

Private Safari to Amboseli and Tsavo
5/5

Organization of the trip was perfect, I was very pleased with the e-mail contact, availability and overall organization. The agreed Itinerary was kept to 100%, the pricing was very reasonable.

The driver/guide (Daniel) did a very good job even though conditions were sometimes difficult because of the rain. For me he was explaining just enough while at the same time giving me time to enjoy for myself. I always felt safe in the car and think I saw the most I could. The car itself was well maintained and comfortable.

The accomodation in Amboseli was very basic, while still clean and adequate (maybe I would choose an accomodation inside the park next time). The Tsavo accommodations were both amazing (Voi Safari Lodge and Ngulia Safari Lodge).

Due to the time of year, the parks presented on their greenest site, even though spotting animals was more difficult. I did nevertheless see most of the "trademark" animals and was very happy with that.

Overall, I would definitely recommend a Safari with Bienvenido.

Safari to Aberdares, Samburu and Ol'Pejeta
5/5

After my first Safari I decided to go a little of the normal path and visit the area around Mount Kenja.

As the last time, communication and booking was fast and without problems. Requests for changes in the Itinerary were immediately acted upon.

The driver again was reliable, even though the car itself had minor technical difficulties. The lodges were spectacular, the parks and the wildlife were diverse and stunning.

Bienvendio was organized and provided a great safari experience!
5/5

We booked a 3-day tour with pick up in Nairobi and drop-off in Mombasa. We visited Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks. The communication before we booked was very organized and quick. Our driver was very knowledgeable about parks and animals which made the safaris very enjoyable. We would definitely recommend/do again if we come back to Kenya!

professional and passionate abou animals
5/5

We visited 3 parks and it was totally worth it. We have chosen a budget version with tents and I can imagine any other way - tents were well equipped with toilets. At night we were hearing wild animals in parks. We have seen lots of animals. The best park was Maasai Mara because of of-road. Totally recommend it!
