My family and really liked the services offered we can't wait to travel again with you.
The 5 days tour at Maasai Mara was at an affordable price all pickups and transfers were on time and the rides were smooth. The two hotels we spent our nights were lovely the game drives and the hot air balloon was a memory well deserved.I can't wait to book another trip with my fiance to Diani for our anniversary.

Wonderful tour with great people
I scheduled a 7 day safari to Kenya for my family in 2019. The COVID-19 virus hit and my plans had to change. Fredinah was extremely understanding and accommodating as I rescheduled 3 times over a 2 year period. She was attentive to detail assisting with hotel stays before and after the safari. She was prompt to answer questions and offer suggestions when requested. An absolute pleasure to deal with online and in person.
Upon arrival in Nairobi, we met our safari guide Boniface. We spent 7 days with him. He was a wealth of information. He always seemed to know exactly where to be and when to be there. We were able to see all of the animals we had hoped to see and some we didn't know existed. Boniface educated us on so much. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about the wildlife of Africa. He helped us understand about life in Kenya and a great deal about the Maissa tribe. He always offered a genuine smile and a kind word. Funny as well.
We met Frances (our driver) and Spencer (our pilot) for the hot air balloon ride. Again, a wonderful experience. Two fantastic, knowledgeable, professional, kind and funny gentlemen.
There is nothing I would change. This was truly the trip of a lifetime surrounded by wonderful people.

Boniface was extraordinarily kind, accommodating and helped with everything we needed!
Our guide picked us up from our hotel, took us to the office,and we proceeded for our safari. Boniface was extremely helpful and accommodating while being knowledgeable about the parks, locals, and anything else we needed.

I took a safari to the Kenyan coast and right from the start the services offered were very good.the packages were clearly outlined i was able to get an affordable trip within my budget and the accommodations lived up to my expectations. Whenever i needed clarifications and assistance it was well done and i will definitely be a repeat client

Fredinah was especially helpful and trustworthy. Mike our guide and driver for 18 days kept us safe.
The food was monotonous and the showers were not always hot but otherwise we viewed as much wildlife as did tourists who paid a lot more for their more luxurious accommodations and food.

Unforgettable experience for budget travelers who come for the animals, not the accommodations!
Guides work hard to ensure optimal viewing of animals including optional times of day and close encounters with all types of animals.
Each of four parks offers a unique and enjoyable experience.
Seven days was the perfect duration. My husband and I felt satisfied by what we had experienced.
We both agree that this was the best safari experience for us and we were very happy that we chose this company and didn’t waste money on a more expensive trip. Please read the draw backs below if you are deciding whether or not this budget trip is right for you, but keep in mind that we came for the animals, not the accommodation.
Draw backs to consider: Please note that all draw backs listed are to be expected at a lower price point. If the things I list are an issue, consider booking a luxury or semi luxury trip instead. If you like the budget, expect the following:
Long drives over bumpy roads. Drivers sometimes drive very fast. The only way to avoid this would be to fly.
Included meals are virtually the same every day. Some fellow travelers complained about the lack of variety. But, if you like to get a local experience, you can count on local food.
Some locations accommodate vegetarians surprisingly well. Vegans should make prior arrangements. I doubt that vegans could be accommodated based on my observation, but I did not ask ahead of time.
WiFi at budget hotels is not reliable. It is affordable to get cellular internet access in Nairobi before your safari if you wish, and for a good price. Just make sure the phone that you bring is unlocked!
Camping accommodations were nicer than expected at Maasai Mara, but worse than expected in Amboseli. Be prepared for dogs barking all night, disruptive other travelers, and bugs or even mice in your tent.

Amazing Safari in Africa
Such a pleasure to tour with African Scenery Tours. Fredinah organized my tours in Kenya and Tanzania! It was great from beginning to end. She made my tour enjoyable and would love to book again with her. The safari in Kenya was great. Our guide was amazing. Overall it was a great trip....nothing to complain about. Thanks Fredinah

Amazing budget safari
The communication before the tour was excellent - Fredinah was always on hand to answer questions. The tour was even rearranged a little so that my husband spent his birthday on safari rather than travelling - the staff were very professional and ensured my husband had a surprising trip! We would definitely recommend this tour. The guides were knowledgable and food was plentiful. Excellent trip all round!

Amazing big 5 experience
We booked a 7 day safari tour through internet with Fredinah. The communication was very good and she was very helpfull. We did a bike tour through hells gate park and a boattour at lake Naivasha. (Extra cost). We saw the white rhino and the black at Nakuru National Park. Our good driver/guide Joseph is a good wildlifespotter. At the Masai Mara we saw in one day the big five. Many lions and a male lion with a deer in his mouth. A leopard next to our car and a jumping cheetah over our car. At Amboseli we saw Tim the biggest elephant and hunderds elephants walking with a nice clear view with the Kilimanjaro. Everthing was great and well organised. Thank you again for the great holiday.

I booked the 6-day Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli tour with them and I couldn't be happier with their service. Although it was a budget tour, their service was professional through and through. The communication before the trip was always prompt and detailed. The drivers/guides are experienced and patient. You can easily pay 3 times more money for a more luxurious trip and you'll see exactly the same animals. I would 100% recommend them to someone travelling on a budget and wants value for their money.
