An experience way better than expected!

I was quite careful when booking this tour because when it comes to safari, even the budget options are very expensive. I decided to get the most of it and booked a 6-day trip to 3 national parks. And now, I must say, my overall experience was even better than I would expect.
We were an international team of 7 in a minivan. It's important to mention something I learned about how the tours are organized - each one of us booked from a different operator and even paid a different price! Therefore, it's hard for me to say what really differentiates one operator from the others.
Maxwell, our driver, was really great! What stands out at first is his excellent knowledge. He had answers to all the questions and knew all the species. Driving in the national parks, especially such as Masai Mara, may be very challenging, but he (as well as our minivan) proved absolutely unbeatable. We were able to pass the most difficult obstacles on the way and after that our driver would even help other drivers. I was impressed how they cooperate with each other. There's no competition but a common will to provide the experience of a lifetime to all the participants. And we made it, we got the big five in just 3 days, and even more than that! Some animals would willingly approach us to even one meter away! It's just unbelievable how they do not care about our presence at all. And the sceneries of elephant or lion families right in front of my eyes, is something I will recall forever and ever.
In terms of organization, I can't complain much, because I chose the budget option. The accommodation was decent, the food was basic but alright. Just FYI, there's no air conditioning in the car even though traveling from one park to another is a significative part of the entire safari.
I only regret two things: 1) Our visit in Nakuru could have been longer. We were only chasing a rhino and as soon as we spotted it, we left. 2) Bottled water was supposed to be unlimited but on the first day of the trip I was informed that "unlimited" means just one litre per person per day which is laargely insufficient when the temperature reaches over 30 degrees Celcius. It's a very small expense for the company, so I think they could really provide what "unlimited" in fact means.
To summarize: if you think that visions of paradise in Jehova's Witnesses' bulletins are some kind of fantasy out of a child's imagination, just go to Kenyan national parks and see it with your own eyes. It's really there, on this Earth.

Excellent 3-day Safari in Masai Mara

We recently went on a 3-day private (2 of us) safari in Masai Mara with Explorers Wild Adventures, and I must say it was an incredible experience. Our trip was made even more memorable by the fantastic driver, Joseph, who had an extensive knowledge about the local wildlife, culture, and people. He made sure we got to see all the must-see animals and also provided us with interesting facts and stories about the area.

The Masai Mara is home to some of the most magnificent animals on the planet, and our driver made sure we got up close and personal with many of them. He took us to the best spots for wildlife viewing and even managed to get us some amazing sightings of lions, elephants, cheetahs, and many more.

Most importantly, we always felt safe throughout our trip. Our driver was experienced and knowledgeable about the terrain, and he made sure we were always aware of our surroundings and the safety precautions we needed to take. This allowed us to fully enjoy our safari experience without any worries.

In conclusion, I highly recommend this 3-day safari in Masai Mara safari with Explorers Wild Adventures. The driver's extensive knowledge and his commitment to ensuring our safety made our trip unforgettable. If you're looking for a unique and enriching experience, this safari is the perfect choice.

A perfect 6 night safari trip!

We had a fantastic experience booking our dream safari trip with this company. Just for reference, we booked the 6 night safari tour in a private safari van and chose mid-range-luxury accommodation.

Communication with Johann, the tour operator was easy through WhatsApp and he was responsive. He was helpful with changing the itinerary to suite our trip plans and offered the best alternatives when I wanted to upgrade one of the lodges.

Our driver, Joseff, was really great. He was calm and accommodating; for example when I got food poisoning and was unable to do the planned afternoon boat safari, he kindly drove my husband to the nearest pharmacy for supplies and adjusted our itinerary so that we could still do the activity the next morning. He was in close communication with the rangers in the parks so helped get very close to the Big 5 multiple times!

The itinerary we were provided was very accurate, and there were no unexpected changes or surprises during our trip.

I would highly recommend booking with explorers wild adventures if you are planning a safari trip.

**As a tip, the safari van was very comfortable for the 2 of us and the van is well equipped for some of the more difficult roads. If you are travelling as group larger than 4, consider requesting the jeep as this will be more comfortable

Great from start to finish.

Right from contacting for a quote, to arranging any extras, to the safari itself, the experience was exemplary. Any questions were answered quickly and clearly, and our safari guide was fantastic - super friendly and got us to see every animal we could have seen within two days! I wouldn't have changed anything about the experience and can't recommend it highly enough.

basically they are liars

They put 8 of us in a van when the budget clearly said 7 maximum (and 7 is already uncomfortable). Also, far from apologizing, they told us that we had been lucky, that we could have been up to 9 (and they don't care what was in the contract). They also try to force you to go to the Masai village instead of going on an early safari, because for them it is much cheaper, it cost us some very serious discussions to be able to go on safari on the last day (although it also says so in the contract). Do not let an unforgettable experience be spoiled by going with these people, there are many companies that do what they say.

Amazing experience

The booking process was very straightforward and the communication with the office nice and easy. They were able to arrange a slightly different itinerary for us than we had seen online which was great!

We were collected promptly from the airport as planned and met Joseph our guide. Joseph was very friendly and made us feel welcome straight away.

The safari experiences were incredible. Joseph was an excellent driver who ensure we saw everything! He communicated with other drivers to help track animals and took us all over each of the parks. He was very knowledgeable about the animals, providing us with facts and answering our questions.

The accommodation (mid-range lodge) was a little mixed, some of the lodges could be improved. As a vegetarian, the food was quite repetitive however mostly tasted good! One of the vegetarian packed lunch however was not good at all - I’d advise to take snacks!

I would absolutely recommend this company to anybody looking to do a safari. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

An unforgettable Safari with Explorers Wild Adventures - 10/10!

Our 6-day safari to Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli with Explorers Wild Adventures was everything we hoped for and so much more.
My boyfriend and I planned the safari from Germany and while this can be a quite difficult process, Johann Mwale from Explorers Wild Adventures helped us during every step of the way. He recommended different safari options to us: budget, mid-range and luxury. We decided for the mid-range option as it was offering beautiful lodges and a PRIVATE safari for an excellent price. Communication with Johann was always quick and excellent. On our side, we also had some trouble with the bank transfer. However, Johann was very kind and helpful in this situation.
On the day our safari started, we were picked up by Johar (John) who is the best driver and guide we could wish for. If possible, we highly recommend to do your own tour with him. He is very knowledgeable, patient, kind and always goes the extra mile to give his clients the best experience. Thanks to him we saw all of the Big 5 and many more animals on our tour. We are very grateful to the Explorer Wild Adventures-Team and will definitely choose them for our next safari in Kenya again without hesitation. Thank you for an unforgettable vacation!
