What an experience!

We took a 6 night safari with Morningstar staying one night at Lake Nakuru, 2 nights in the Masai Mara , 2 nights in the Serengeti and one night in the Ngorogoro Crater. Dennis was our tour consultant and he answered all our communications with great efficiency.
All of our accommodation was clean , comfortable and of a high standard.
We saw so many animals … lions , elephants, giraffes, hippos etc in abundance just to name a few plus we were lucky enough to see a cheetah and a leopard.
Dennis organized a visit to a Masai village for us which was amazing and also a sunrise hot air balloon experience over the Mara which was truly magical.
Overall we had a wonderful experience and would recommend Dennis and Morningstar.

We are grateful for Morning Star and the magical trip they organized.

Morning Star delivered us a truly magical honeymoon in Kenya. Dennis’s prompt and professional replies and a thorough and transparent custom itinerary made us sure they were the company to go with. Our guide, Chalo Masila (Alex) was not only passionate and thoroughly knowledgeable conservationist, he was also very friendly, welcoming and organized. He is highly respected amongst hotel staff and other guides and this paid dividends- he was able to organize and direct the safari vehicle traffic to allow our vehicle to be the closest one to the animals- especially around the lions and leopard. Our safari vehicle was brand new- less than 12,000KM, and was the envy of the other guides. They delivered us a trip that included seeing over 30 unique safari animals (including the big 5), beautiful birds, the petting a rhino and of a hyena cub, sunrises over the great migration in a hot air balloon, elephants in front of our hotel patio, dances with the Masai Mara, and luxurious accommodations with truly exceptional hotel services. We were comfortable, safe, and in perpetual awe. We will go back to Kenya, and we will use Morning Star as our tour company. Thank you Kenya, and thank you Morning Star.

Amazing Safari Experience

We had a wonderful Maasai Mara safari experience and highly recommend Morning Star Tours. From the beginning, Joseph was very responsive and able to customize our safari to include extra game drives and a village visit. Everyone was on time and reliable, we knew we were in great hands! We felt the safari price was a great value - included all our meals, a private guide, and accommodation. Everything was exactly as described and there was no "nickel and diming" or extra fees/charges. Our safari guide Joseph was experienced (20+ years experience!) and truly amazing. As a veterinarian and animal lover I was concerned about the impact of our presence on the animals but Joseph was able to get us great views without stressing animals or interfering with their lives. It truly was an exceptional trip. Thank you to everyone at Morning Star Tours!

Our tour guide Rono was amazing, very knowledgeable and flexible. He went over and beyond!!

From start to finish, the process was seamless. Staff members are super friendly and available at all times. All of my questions and concerns prior to the trip were answered immediately. It was my wife’s birthday so I asked for a surprise bday cake …. Not only did they arrange a bday cake, they created an UNFORGETTABLE birthday surprise with the Maasai Warriors traditional dance! It was AMAZING! I highly recommend Morningstar Safari to anyone looking for a life changing experience!

very kind, responsible, reliable people and efficient, affordable, pleasant services

I am very glad choosing MorningStar as the planner and service provider for my first safari in Kenya. They planned our trips in Amboseli, Mara and the lakes in very short time, and I enjoyed thw trip very much. We've travelled from one destination to another smoothly and timely, visited scenic landscapes like the Kilimajaro and Mara, and saw hundreds of antelops and zebras running and living on the grass, cheetahs and leopards coming and going in glances, lions roaring and patrolling between bushes, and elephants and giraffes walking and flocking. What a circle of life...

Above the expectations

We couldn’t recommend Morningstar Safaris more.
The service was excellent from the beginning to the end.
Dennis allowed me to prepare a tailor made 14 days Safari that became the best trip in my life. I had to make my family fall in love with Kenya as much as I have been for the last 34 years, from the 1st time I landed in this country.
And It has already happened on day 1!
Alex was the perfect guide to drive us to spot and take pictures of all the wonderful animals that I had in mind before the departure, with great experience and knowledge of animals behavior.
We will come back soon!

Excellent tour operator - great communication before and during the safari, would highly recommend.

We did two safaris during our recent trip to Kenya. Morningstar was far superior in every way - from the communication before we had booked, to the expertise of the guide, they even checked in on via text each morning of the safari to make sure everything was going smoothly. Thank you to Alice and the Morningstar team for an amazing experience. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.

Unforgettable experience, great organization!

From the beginning we had a very good contact with Robert and Dennis from morningstarsafaris who put our Safari together. They recommended things to us that were absolutely worth it!
When we arrived at the airport, our guide Alex was already waiting for us with great enthusiasm. He has been on this trip with us and is truly Kenya's best driver driving the coolest new Landcruiser.
He also knows a lot about the animals and nature and has a good eye for photography.
I don't know how he did it but Alex was always in the right place at the right time to see and photograph the animals. He also arranged an unforgettable birthday in the Masai Mara for our son who turned 11.
We are already looking forward to going on another adventure with Alex and Morningstarsafaris!

Amazing experience in Kenya

We had a wonderful 10 day trip in Kenya with Morningstar! We were contacted by Dennis after we submitted a price quote on the website and Dennis was extremely quick in responding our questions and adjustments of the itinenary. The whole trip arrangement was very good, there were some mis-communication between hotels and the agency but sorted out very quickly. Morningstar also makes the best looking itinenaries.

Our driver Willy was crucial in making our trip a experience. Our Land Cruiser was reasonably stable and Willy kept the car very clean from day to day; his driving skill is also quite good both on highways and during game drives; not to mention his "social" skills - chatting with other drivers on the radio and find out where the big animals are. During the trip we felt like we've seen everything that we wanted to see. well, except wildebeest crossing but that's nobody's fault. During the trip we had some ad-hoc requests and we felt that overall Willy tried his best in satisfying our needs.

All in all we felt the trip very satisfying and we will definitely recommend Morningstar to our friends and families.
