We visited Kenya as two couples in the first half of October.
We passed through the Masai Mara, Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and Amboseli, right after the Safaris we went to Diani Beach by train where we stayed for 4 nights.
Everything was organized perfectly by Imraan and the team, from the first contact to the return to Brazil Imraan kept in touch with us with impeccable service. Furthermore, we met at the hotel and he gave us lots of tips.
The Camps and Lodges were excellent and provided total immersion in nature, many animals around them, but in complete safety.
During the safaris we saw many animals, we counted 27 types of mammals, and many birds and some reptiles. The number of animals in the reserves is truly impressive.
We left Kenya wanting to return soon. We highly recommend Best C Tours and our friend Imraan.

Best experience for the best price

We were on our honeymoon and did a safari to Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli National Park. We did the 7 day tour. We went with the expectation of seeing as many animals as possible and taking beautiful photos. It worked out. However, it often takes a lot of patience and some days you are less lucky than others. Therefore it makes sense to spend several nights at the places. However, our driver Abdallah made an incredible amount of things possible. Among other things, he was in constant exchange with other tour guides and so we were able to experience unique animal encounters. This is one of the reasons why I would definitely do a guided tour and not drive my own car. Also, the roads are very "off-road" and not always easy to drive. However, with Abdallah we always felt safe. He always stopped when we asked him to and if, for example, we said we would like to see elephants today, he listened to the radio and went to the right places to make it possible. The important thing is to accept that not every wish can come true. The game drives were always tailored to our wishes and needs. We went to the park at sunrise or sometimes stayed there until sunset. Abdallah was completely oriented to our wishes. On a game drive (game stands for wild and not for play) one collects so many impressions that one is glad about a short break in the midday. Since they usually also start very early, the break is also a good time to take a nap. The food during the safari was also outstanding. Especially in the Mara, we were touchingly taken care of by the team at our own campsite and there was always very tasty food (also vegetarian on request). The accommodations were always extraordinary, sometimes because of the view, sometimes because of the food and sometimes because of the background noise. The latter is especially unique in the tented camp in the Masai Mara. It is great to fall asleep to the laughter of the hyenas. By the way, in the tents there are real beds (1,20m x 2m). If you do our tour, you have to be aware that you sometimes sit in the car for a very long time during the change of location. This does not detract from the joy, because you can experience Kenya from the less touristy side. Our tour guide also entertained us during the trips with interesting facts about Kenya and nature. We would definitely recommend this tour and also the company as we got to know it. Everyone really does their best to give you the perfect experience (for example, the night before we left for the Mara, our plug adapter broke. The owner came to our hotel that night and brought a new one). We will definitely come back!

Lovely safari experience with Best Camping

This was our second time with Best Camping Safaris, and we had a wonderful experience yet again! From planning the itinerary, to meeting us when we landed in Kenya and briefing us regarding our impending travels with helpful guidance, being in touch regarding pick ups and drop offs and coordinating them without any problems, having a really lovely driver and guide (Ben), and ensuring extra care because we were travelling with our two young kids, to the point of final goodbyes, Imraan and his team were the absolute best. We got to see all the animals (the big five, and more!) we wanted, as well as a chance to see the wildebeest migration live! Best camping ensure you maximise your safari experience but without compromising on safety, and quality. We cannot wait to go back again on another adventure with them! Thank you for a lovely trip and amazing memories :-)

Excellent , Professional and safe tour operator for Kenyan Safaris

Our family went with Imraan and Best camping tours and Safaris and it was a fabulous experience. Imraan took very good care of us and the driver cum guide Robert provided to us was very safe while having a good eye to spot animals. Over all a fantastic experience as we could sight all the animals while having a safe drive, with good food and stay at nice places. I recommend Best camping tours and safaris to anyone who wants a Kenyan Safari experience. The place is so beautiful and the people that we met through the tour were courteous and passionate about sharing information about the game parks, their culture and making the trip extra special.

The review below is the personal opinion of Anonymous and not that of SafariBookings.
Driver was the tour guide and he was great!

Game drives were reduced from promised package, informed upon arrival to Nairobi and after full payment. Vehicles were not in best conditition, owner was rude and arrogant as communicated. Radio in vehicles was not working, however driver was well experienced to talk to other drivers and show us animals.
Lodges were great and Kenya safari is a lifetime experience overall.

Best experience ever with Best Camping Tours & Safaris

We had an amazing time while camping with BCTS. They were absolutely professional, from the airport complimentary pick-up to the end of our safari. Everything was perfectly organized and we felt super safe in every moment. All the staff were very kind and helpful, and the service they provide is superb!

The camping was so comfortable; the tents were spacious and had thick mattresses and blankets, the bathrooms had hot water showers, the dining room had light and plugs in order to charge the mobile phone or camera batteries. But the real highlight is that the camping is right at Talek gate which means that you can wake-up at 6:25 a.m. and being in the park spotting giraffes at 6:30 a.m. since it is really close to the gate in contrast to other low-cost safari companies that offers cheap safaris but being to far away from the gates (which means to lose so much time before entering the park). Another point to have in mind is that we had several safaris, specially at sunrise and sunset, which are the best hours to spot felines.

The food was absolutely delicious (thanks Steve!) and the camping was guarded by two Masais (John & Bill) that did not allow any animal to get close to the camping and were very nice and kind. Our driver Joseph had such a good eye when finding animals hidden in the bushes. He was trully professional and accomplish strictly the safari schedules.

To sum up, it is a great option to go on a quality and also budget safari, 5 out of 5!

Very good and professional safari company with great staff

Everything was very well arranged, from the pickup at Nairobi Airport, hotel in Nairobi and a great safari experience. The camping facilities are good and the overnight hotel after Nakuru parks is very nice. Our guide Edward is not only very friendly, he really makes sure you have a great safari experience. The vehicles are comfortable and in good condition. The food is very good as well. Great value for money!

Two days in Masai Mara and a day in Lake Nakuru National Park

The tour was exactly what I wanted and an amazing way to finish my trip in Kenya. We spotted the Big Five over the course of the safari and our driver, Joseph, couldn't have been more knowledgeable or helpful. I would definitely recommend!
