A flawless experience - top notch service, accommodation and food at a fair price

My fiancée and I had a great safari to Hell's Gate, Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru with Natural World in January 2018. The service was superb from start to finish. Our communication with Humphrey prior to the tour was great and they catered to all of our requests (including an airport pickup) for a very reasonable price. Our driver, Bonnie, was brilliant: he was knowledgable, great at spotting things and friendly without ever being intrusive (the excellent English goes without saying, as everyone at this company speaks English very fluently). Despite a tight schedule, we managed to fit everything in without ever really feeling rushed.

The trip was so great that we then booked again with Natural World for our day trip around Nairobi to the National Park, Giraffe Centre and Elephant Santuary. George, who took us on this trip, was excellent as well.

The first trip was in a safari minivan, which was much more comfortable and well equipped than we were expecting. They had just fitted new tyres to the van, which is a good sign as you do see some safari vehicles with ancient, worn out tyres, but Natural World clearly take this seriously. Our day trip was in a one year old 4x4, complete with wifi, charging points and pop-up roof which was amazing!

Natural World also has a good partnership with Sopa Lodges, where we stayed in Nakuru and ate in Naivasha - the food and the accommodation was excellent in both.

We're already thinking about bringing our parents back to Kenya for a safari, and if we do we won't hesitate to book with Natural World again.

A wonderful trip and an amazing company

I will try and keep this review as short and concise as possible but its quite difficult because all I want to do is rave about Natural World Kenya Safaris.
We arrived home two days ago and it was by far the best trip I've ever been on... and I travel quite a lot.

My flatmate and I booked to go on a 9 day trip and upgraded to the 4x4 vehicle which I would definitely recommend. The more "van" like vehicles got stuck in the mud at Masai Mara where it is quite muddy so I would 100% recommend the 4x4.

Faith came to meet us from our hotel in the morning and introduced us to our driver Sisto. We were meant to have Philip but he was ill and we are so glad that Sisto was our driver (even though I'm sure Philip would have been wonderful too).

We drove from Nairobi to Amboseli and Sisto pointed out animals on the way and gave us facts. We pulled up on the side of the motorway...wondered why and Sisto showed us a giraffe which came up to about 3m from the car!

We arrived in Amboseli at the beautiful Sopa lodge and were treated so wonderfully. The lodges are beautiful, but make sure you take mosquito spray! There are mosquito nets at every lodge and the staff prepare them before bed for you and make sure theres no mosquitos inside which was a nice touch.

Amboseli is a beautiful park and we stayed there fore two nights. We saw lions and cheetahs on our first day and were so excited. Sisto really took the time to listen to which animals we were most interested in and find them for us.

From Amboseli we moved to Lake Naivasha which was even nicer (in terms of rooms). We were right by the lake and the hippos feed on the grass outside your room at night (they're dangerous so you have to be accompanied to and from dinner by security).

The food at both of these lodges was wonderful. Four courses with so much variety (and incredible Indian vegetarian food - which I recommend).

We went on the boat ride on the lake when we arrived and decided to do the Hells Gate walk the following day. I would suggest doing this as it is best to do the Hells Gate walk in the morning when more animals are out. It is too hot for them in the afternoon.

We saw so many hippos and birds on the boat ride and then the next day we went to Hells Gate National Park. We decided to walk (rather than cycle) and did a 10 mile walk with the park nearly completely to ourselves. We were so close to zebras and giraffes and I had a wonderful birthday there. This was my favourite thing we did on the whole trip and our guide Charles was really great.

We then drove to Lake Nakuru which was the most beautiful lodge yet. It was absolutely gorgeous and Sisto had told them it was my birthday so they put wine and flowers in my room and made me a huge cake! I was so touched and it was so sweet of Sisto to do.

We also had a safari here where we got to see Rhinos.

Our next stop was Masai Mara. The lodge was probably the most basic of the four, but had the most atmosphere as it was busier. The other lodges had all been very quiet (which was lovely) but there were more people at Masia Mara and the rooms weren't as nice. The Game Drives made up for it though. Safari is so exhausting that at the end of the day you don't really mind if your room has an amazing view or not. The Masai Mara Reserve is SO green and is teaming with wildlife. Sisto knew we really wanted to see a leopard and he spent about three hours trying to find us one which was so kind. Overall on the trip we saw 1 leopard, 10 cheetahs and 31 lions (including two sets of cubs) It was magical.

The staff at Masai Mara also put wine and flowers in our room for my flatmates birthday (two days after mine) and it was a very nice touch.

In terms of actual safari, I don't know how you could beat the trip we went on. We visited lots of different parks and therefore got to see lots of different wildlife. Amboseli had hundreds of elephants and then Masai Mara had lots of lions. It was nice to have a mix.

On our final day we had quite a long time before we had to head to the airport so Sisto took us to a giraffe sanctuary which was 10dollars and very resonable. It was lovely to have an all inclusive trip and not have to worry about money the whole time (apart from this one occasion). I would take money to tip your driver though. We gave our driver 50pounds each (so 100pounds total) and he was worth much more. We based that amount off other recommendations, so I would recommend taking Kenyan Shillings for that and maybe a thank you card. We ended up making him one on the last day as we hadn't thought ahead.

I could rave about this trip for hours, but I will leave it here. It was wonderful and I can't recommend them enough.

Amazing Safari with a great guide and very nice lodge accommodations.

The booking process was easy but payment was a little more difficult however Duncan at Natural World Safaris walked me through it. Julian our safari guide was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to answer every question we had throughout the entire safari on all topics including the local culture, the Geographic region and the animals. Thanks to Julian our safari experience was unforgetable and one we will remember for the rest of our life!

Excellent, professionally organized tour.

Impressions are wonderful.
The level of service is the highest.
Heads of the company are very concerned about customers.
Several times they called from the central office, asked whether everything was in order and whether everything was fine.
At the end of the trip, when we were already brought to the hotel in Nairobi, the driver called the central office and asked us to personally report that we are OK.
The vehicle was not new, but in good technical condition.
The driver, Peter, is very attentive to us, and drives carefully.
I tried to show the maximum number of animals.
He has been driving tourists for safari for 30 years, but despite this work he is obviously not bored, it is relevant to the soul, it is pleasant to communicate with such a person.
Services do not impose.
"Do you want to see the Masai village, but you have to pay for every step?" - "We do not want to" - Ok, once I proposed everything.
The travel schedule is very well thought out and very clearly implemented.
We thought that we would get tired, but we were not tired at all.
Camps and lodges we chose when booking completely corresponded to the description (Satao and Serena) Particularly impressed by the camp of Satao, where a herd of impala was sleeping on the territory.

Do not hesitate to book your safari with Natural World Kenya Safaris!

I've just had my second safari with them, the 3-day Amboseli safari. I originally did the Lake Nakuru - Masai Mara safari. This company really goes above and beyond to make your safari a success. They were very helpful with some travel issues I was having, and I am eternally grateful to them. I hope to have the opportunity to use them again and will be recommending them to all of my friends.

Wonderful first safari experience

Natural World Kenya Safaris was very easy to work with. We conducted our business entirely by email, and all arrangements were flawless. They arranged excellent accommodations, delivered what they advertised, and provided a professional and dependable driver. Their follow-up at the end of the safari, to verify that we were satisfied with their service was also well appreciated. We booked with them because of recommendations from people who had received good service from them before, and we were not disappointed.
