Excellent experience, can’t imagine better value for money
5/5

Highly recommend best memories Safaris for a customized and personalized experience.
Best memories did a fantastic job from start to finish, they picked us up at 1 AM in the morning from Nairobi airport and dropped us back to the airport at the end of our trip in Mombasa. Our driver was Anthony and he did a phenomenal job, extremely knowledgeable of the terrain, areas and wildlife, When you spend up to 12 hours a day in a vehicle with someone you don’t know could be uncomfortable but Anthony has a great personality and we quickly felt very comfortable with him.
We did an eight day Safari, one day in Lake in Nakuru, 4 days In Masa Mara Then Amboseli followed by Tsavo East. Followed by four days at the Diani beach near Mombasa.
I will be honest with you, I was very skeptical of dealing with an small local business that has a PO Box for its address and requires payment by wire transfer. Everything above was setting off red flags that I could be being scammed, but it couldn’t be further from the truth, Isaac was fantastic dealing with the many changes I made to the itinerary in the months leading up To our arrival.
We are planning to use best memories safaris on our return in January 2024, you are not going to find a better value for your money anywhere else.

A Magical Experience
5/5

The Safari with Best Memory Safari was better than we could have imagined! Anthony, our guide and driver, was so knowledgeable and amazing at spotting animals. The places they booked our nights stay at, were so beautiful, and each unique. The food was so delicious! We saw many animals and loved watching them and learning about them. Definitely something we will never forget and so grateful we went with Best Memory Safari!!

A Great Experience with Best Memory Safaris !
5/5

We spent 7 amazing days in Safari Kenya, through 5 NP, Masai Mara, Naivasha, Amboseli and Tsavo East, with mid-rage accommodation in 4 locations, at the beginning of this year, organized by Best Memory Safaris. 4 people , with a Land Rover that has proven to be the best choice for both dry and muddy roads, so as not to miss any opportunity and to fully enjoy the safari experience. They waited us at the airport in Nairobi and dropped us off at the hotel in Diani Beach where we continued our vacation for another week. On the way back, they also helped us to get to Mombasa train station. Thank you Isaac for all the support and flexibility, for the perfect organization, 7 perfect days, each with a different experience, in which we gathered the best memories. So professional !
And if it was perfect it was thanks to Antony, our driver, experienced, patient, dedicated, with one ear on the radio station, not to lose any tips, with a very good orientation, capturing the perfect moment in the indicated places, sometimes anticipated the animals' route, always chose the best position for photos and videos. It was like in a Discovery documentary.
He also proved to be the perfect guide, a small encyclopedia, happy to share with us his rich experience and knowledge about wildlife, animals and their habits, trees, about Kenya and its people.
We had an unforgettable week, full of energy, humor and adventure. Thanks Antony, you made our safari exceptional. He is your man for a successful safari, we warmly recommend him as well as the company Best Memory Safaris, indeed!

Amazing memories in Kenya
5/5

The 7-day private tour with my husband was amazing ! We visited Masai Mara, Lake Naivaisha, Amboseli and Tsavo East, ending in Diani Beach. Isaac was 100% available to answer my questions before and during the trip. He was able to modify the original trip offer to end in Diani Beach which was perfect for our plans. Anthony our guide was very knowledgeable, easy going and friendly. He adapted himself to our rythm and needs. The hotels were all great, confortable and with delicious food. I recommend Best Memory Safaris for the excelent service and the reasonnable price.

Best Safari Experience Ever, Look No Further!
5/5

Where do I start, firstly anyone who is thinking of booking with best memory safaris, I suggest you DO IT. We travelled as a family of 4 in December 2021. We were met by Issac who arrived on time to pick up us from our hotel, he was very professional, respectful and communication was excellent. We spent most of our time with our guide Anthony who made the experience even better due to his sense of humour. We travelled in a 4x4 Landcruiser which was very comfortable and Anthony was an amazing guide with a vast array of knowledge. He shared a lot of knowledge on the animals, birds and plants/trees and was patient with us when we wanted to take pictures or videos. The service could not be faulted at all. we plan to travel again and will be using them again. it is 100% worth every penny.

Truly unforgettable Safari Experience
5/5

We did nine days safari (Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara, Nake Naivasa, Amboselli, Taita Hill Sanctuary and Tsavo East) Antony was excellent in animal tracking. Could saw Lions and Cheetah many times. In fact we had kind of National Geographic experience when Cheetah hunted the wild beast. Could see lots of animals including big five just except Rhino. All the lodges and tents were amazing with very good food. We saw Hippos roaming in Lake Naivasa Country Club. Salt Lick Safari Lodge had excellent animal watching all day long. Very unique experience.
However, I found that their management was worst.
For lunch had to wait more than half hours in a crowded place. Room was not ready even at 2: 30 pm. If they could improve their management, I would still recommend Salt Lick Safari since their animal watching from the room, bar, restaurant- all were excellent experience.
Overall, we had un-forgettable best memories, no doubt. Isaac was very responsive from the beginning. Many times he showed flexibility of editing plans based on my request. He agreed on full payment after arrival and no prepayment. Also, I found that he offered a competitive price in comparison to the other operators I approached.

Amazing Experience with Isaac and Best Memory Safari. We will return again next year.
5/5

Our group of 5 traveled from the US to Kenya during the pandemic. Isaac guided our experience and we had an unforgettable time with Best Memory.

We experienced the busy city of Nairobi, we went on safari in the Mara, Mombasa and the coast. We did so much during our experience. I highly recommend people spend at least 10 -14 days with Best Memory to get a complete understanding of Kenya. They worked really hard to make sure we saw as many animals as we could while on safari.

Our group saw more of the country than many of the locals based on what some of the locals told us. Isaac is also very well connected. He was able to connect a couple of people in our group with a strategic partner.

I can not say enough great things about Best Memory Safari other than you should trust their knowledge, expertise and book with them.

Great trip with a professional but still personal operator and guide
5/5

We have been on a 11 day safari with Best Memory Safaris at the start of September 2021. To cut it short, overall it has been a very nice experience which did certainly fulfill our expectations.

We organized the trip on short notice just a couple of days before departure. Isaac from Best Memory Safaris has been very open to support a customer itinerary we wanted to have due to both arriving and departing by air from Mombasa. Isaac did put together a schedule which we liked and was very responsive in his communication also regarding our additional questions and requests. We also decided to go for a jeep rather than a a van, which we very much appreciated later during the trip, we certainly do suggest to take a jeep if your budget allows for it. As Isaac was also able to offer a quite competitive price we decided to get into business with him over a couple of competitors which we considered.

We have been picked up at the airport by Isaac and by our guide Anthony. We actually very much appreciated Isaac showing up and traveling from Nairobi for this purpose. We did directly pick up our trip with Anthony and moved towards Taita Hills. We continued over Camp Ziwani, Amboseli, Lake Nakuru followed by Masai Mara, Lake Naiwasha and lastly Tsavo East. I will not dive into all the great experiences we had in the parts as this would be too much for this review. We managed to see all the animals on our bucket list - big and small and also some action. We truly believe a lot of this was due to our wonderful guide Anthony, who obviously has a great amount of experience and knowledge about the parks as well as the roads and was able to spot the animals himself as well as to work with other guides to bring us to them. Clearly this was a great advantage over other guides and groups we have met on the trip. Anthony was very professional in every aspect of his work and also very concerned about Covid-19 safety which we appreciated. Likewise as our trip included multiple long distance drives we appreciated his excellent driving skills on one side but also his careful approach with safety on first place on the other. Actually considering the distances next time we certainly would take one flight from Nairobi or consider taking a local flight or train between the two in worst case. I have to mention that the attention to the jeep Anthony did exercise in terms making sure we have a full tank, balanced tire pressure and that the car is clear did help us to feel secure and relaxed. On top of the guiding and driving skills I have to say that we very much enjoyed the time Anthony as person in long talks with him about life and situation in Kenya as well as in Slovakia and the similarities and differences as well as many other topics which we touched. Thus although the drives were long we spent them pleasantly.

As in every longer trip not everything went smoothly and we had some issues. In particular Sentrim Mara was a disappointment and quite under par of other accommodations we did stay in during the trip. Not working water, pretty poor food and totally shitty internet access did make us sad. Isaac helped us to resolve the problem with water, which made the situation acceptable, even though not desirable. Likewise Setrim Tsavo East was a disappointment. We certainly would suggest to avoid these on a mid-range budget. Never the less we believe Isaac handled the situation properly and hopefully will arrange itineraries considering our feedback in the future.

We liked the trip very much, not only because of the wonderful sights and experiences in the parks but also due to professional services of our guide Anthony and the planning of Isaac. If you are up for a mid-range custom trip we certainly can recommend Best Memory Safaris. All in all this was a great trip and great value for money.

Great Adventure
5/5

My wife and I did the 14 day Bush to Beach Safari and everything was spectacular. Our Safari operator Isaac arranged everything including airport pickups and drop offs, hotels, and park passes. We met out Safari driver Steve at the hotel in Nairobi and he took great care of us on our 10 day safari before doping us off in Daini beach resort. Steve did an incredible job as a safari guide, pointing out all sorts of animals and teaching us about them. He was also our ambassador of Kenyan Culture and taught us a lot about Kenyan customs and traditions. The hotels booked for us were all amazing with new wonders each day. This was our first time to East Africa and we were truly impressed. We highly recommend this for anyone looking for a great adventure.

The guides were excellent. All are nation sly certified and could spot animals from afar
5/5

There was not a single downside to the safari. The accommodations were excellent (each had its own unique style), the food was fantastic and plentiful, the safaris were amazing, and the vehicles immaculate. We did many of the parks and also a night and walking safari. Bthe guides are experts at locating animals. Each park was wonderful. We topped off the trip with a few days at the beach (I highly recommend everyone do this). It was a 10/10 experience (and I have been on other safaris that I enjoyed… just not as much as this one). I am recommending #bestmemorysafaris to all my friends.
