Best tour guides in the industry!
4/5

Our tour guides David and Maluta on our 9 day safari through Kenya (Lake Nakuru, Maasai Mara, Amboseli) and Tanzania (Tarangire, Ngorogoro Crater) were incredible! They provided an amazing service and knew a lot about the best spots to find the animals during our trip. They were extremely professional and made sure we were well looked after throughout our trip.

The tour operator (Abongo) was ok. A few logistical issues throughout the trip which were not handled very well, and could have been dealt with more professionally, but overall we were happy with the service and the trip we had.

Extremely Accommodating and flexible with good team of excellent employees
4/5

Extremely Accommodating and flexible with good team of excellent employees.
David - our tour guide who was our driver for the whole trip was very very helpful, knowledgeable and made sure every single opportunity to see if and any and all wildlife. He made our whole Kenya experience the very best. We all loved Kenya and the safari.

Our overall experience with Silver Spark Safari was extremely good. The reason for giving 4 stars is -

out of our whole trip of 10 days - 3 accomodations were extremely good (Samburu- Nakuru and Kibo(Amboselli). These made our experience unforgettable.

but 4 accomodations were really bad (the 1st night hotel in Nairobi, Milili Hotel- Maverick Camp in Aberdare- Lake Naivasha and the last camp at Amboselli).

We had to pay extra out of pocket to get another accomodations from Aberdare and move to Lake Nakuru.

Would highly recommend even if the ratings say good but please please check them more in depth).

If we keep the accomodations aside, Silver Sparks on the whole, Abongo our main point of contact from beginning to the end and on top of everything David made our Kenya safari the best.

Highly highly highly recommend this company.

Thank you Silver Sparks for everything for making us our family unforgettable memories of the lifetime.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Silver Sparks make dreams come true
5/5

Hello, I'm from Spain. I had always dreamed of doing a Safari but I couldn't find anyone to ride it as I wanted it. I contacted Silver Spark Africa Safaris through Safari Bookings.
What a great success!!!
How easy! How fast! How reliable! They were in touch with me all the time and customized my trip just as I had always dreamed!
I was provided with a guide in Spanish, Robert, an adorable man who is already part of our family. He took care of us and provided all the comforts and knowledge.
Abongo, thank you for your infinite patience and invaluable help! Thank you very much for making my dream come true and unforgettable.

very good experience, friendly, informal, reliable
4/5

Pros
- good communication, all e-mails were answered in a few hours
- flexibility, they organized an unscheduled day in Nairobi for us including visit of former US Embassy destroyed by terrorist blast in 1998, one of the highlights of our trip besides national parks
- we probably got to see as much as we could in such a short time thanks to the great itinerary
- reasonable price for this category of safari trip
- excelent driver and guide David, always in a good mood, helpful, never tired of answering our questions or satisfying our endless need for the best picture spot, wonderful character we will never forget

Cons
- even though they say on the website that they do accept credit cards they do not, after we refused requested cash payment, we finaly agreed on Wise money transfer, cashless procedure which worked out fine but wouldn´t have to be so complicated, only dissapointment in otherwise perfect service and only reason for not giving five stars

Fantastic experience through-out!
5/5

We had a wonderful safari experience with Silver Spark!

Communication with the Silver Spark team via email was always easy and swift. We appreciated that their price quote came with a detailed the itinerary, and that they were happy to adjust it based on our needs and wishes (e.g. for the accommodation). Also, online payment of the reservation fee felt simple and secure.

Upon our arrival to the Nairobi airport, we were given a warm welcome and kept company by several from the Silver Spark office team, while waiting for our driver to arrive. What a fun bunch! Just prepare to bring the rest of the payment in cash (USD) - that was the only thing we had not been informed of ahead of our arrival.

We were also hugely pleased with our driver David, who always went the extra mile to ensure that we see as much as possible during our game drives. His 10 years of experience in safari tours showed and was of great value to us.

5/5

We arrived in Kenya late in the night and we found the driver still waiting for us even after three hours delay by our flight. We were taken good care from day one by Silver Spark Africa. We got to know Abongo in person and our drive David, so passionate safari guide, speaking good english. He took us through diverse landscapes on our way to Nakuru and even more diverse roads and guided us to fantastic sites and animals. He knew Maasai Mara park very well. In Lake Nakuru Park, we got to see lion climb a tree. We stayed at Jambo Mara , Lake Nakuru lodge and Aa Amboseli . All these lodges are are clean with good meals. I would highly recommend every one of them. Overall our staying in Kenya with Silver Spark Africa was one of the best time.
