Excellent company, highly recommended.
It was a good start for my Africa journey by decent communication with Albert; he answered all my questions in timely manner and also made some corrections in the schedule and accommodation to satisfy my requests. I'm an amateur photographer traveling mostly alone and I have my own set of expectations and requests which often conflicts with other non-photographer travel companions plans. To my huge surprise I found myself being the only passenger in the car! Needles to say I was a happy camper. On top of that my guide Zak proved himself one fantastic driver and extremely knowledgeable person in every aspect of wildlife and safari gaming. He knows each and every corner of all Kenia's national parks. Thanks to Zak we managed to locate and get very close to all big 5 and much more. He is also very kind and friendly person!
Thank you Albert and Zak for fantastic safari experience, exciting holydays indeed!

The trip of a lifetime
Wonderful 7 nights journey through Masai Mara, lake Nakuru and Amboseli. Edouard, our tour guide, has been the most patient and accommodating person. He is a terrific guide who can spot animals miles away! We obviously saw the big 5 on many occasions and much more! He has ensured our journey was smooth and was the sweetest person with our 10 years old. The hotel selection was v nice, with high levels of comfort. Albert, the owner of the company, is a v nice man, has been v helpful and accommodating during the preparation of the journey and during. Again a v smooth and fabulous journey.
Ps money wise, safari is not a cheap experience but I have found albert company to be v competitive in comparison with others and again this is the trip of a lifetime!

Friendly and always helpful tour operator
Great experience and adventure. The guides try everything to make sure that you'll have a great time with many animals and information.
Amazing highlight: camping in Serengeti with special guests at night. "That's nature".

Disorganized and felt unsafe
I would warn against booking with this company. I felt unsafe on this trip, particularly once the safari moved from the portion in Kenya to the portion in Tanzania- to the extent that I ended my trip four days early I was frequently handed off between different guides and drivers without a secure way of confirming who was affiliated with the company and who wasn't, and was sometimes left without a guide or driver at all. At the Namanga border crossing I was left by my driver/guide and a local was paid to see me through the process and onto the shuttle to Arusha, Tanzania. I didn't have service in the area, and if anything had gone wrong had no way to contact anyone. I did not know who I would be meeting in Tanzania or have a way to reach them or know when they would be picking me up. Once I was in Tanzania, my itinerary was changed so that I could be shuffled to join other drivers and tour groups. While I was still slated to visit the same places in the end, changing the order meant that my family and friends at home would not know where I was on a given day, which made me uncomfortable as a young, solo female traveler. Because I was being passed between groups, I also didn't know who my driver would be, where I would be going on a given day, or who might contact me with this information and when. When I contacted the company with concerns they didn't see these issues as valid.
Part of the reason I booked this specific tour was because it is advertised as vegan-friendly. Despite letting the company know in advance that I was vegan I was frequently unable to eat anything besides fruit and juice, and had to re-explain what my diet was over and over again. Two days into the trip I contacted the company about this and never received a response. I think it's dishonest to advertise this tour as vegan-friendly.
The guides and drivers were all friendly and honestly trying to help solve my problems, admitting that the way things were being handled was far from ideal, and I saw many beautiful animals, but I don't feel like this was enough to overcome the company's mismanagement.
Other travelers I was with were in similar situations, with their itineraries being changed last minute and sometimes prices being increased beyond expected while they were already on the tour, or having their lodgings changed to cheaper options after they had already paid.
*I found this tour through TourRadar, and though they asked for my review the review I submitted never appeared on the site.

3 days of exploring Masai Mara
This was our second experience of safari in Africa and it exceeded expectations! The agenda was followed accurately starting from our meeting in the airport of Nairobi. We had private 4x4 car for our couple. Driving was very comfortable but with a dose of adventure. Due to our guide Zack efforts we were able to meet all the animals from the Big Five, some of them were very close!
Accommodation was very good: cosy lodge with good friendly service and tasty food. Definitely worth its money!
Hope to return here again soon!
