Morningstar Safaris gave us an amazing safari experience!

My girlfriend and I had an absolutely amazing safari experience with Morningstar Safaris. Our driver, Alex, was truly exceptional at spotting the animals. Thanks to him, we were able to capture multiple stunning photos as he always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. While other drivers sometimes lingered, Alex quickly anticipated the animals' movements. We are incredibly grateful for that.

When it comes to arranging the tour, we cannot thank Dennis enough. From the very first email, I had complete confidence in him. The well-crafted and beautiful quote assured me that everything would be perfect! Dennis is easy to communicate with and readily available to answer any questions. If you want your trip customized in advance, no problem, Dennis will take care of it for you.

If you're looking for an organization to book your safari with, we wholeheartedly recommend Morningstar 100%! We had an unforgettable time, and we already miss it!

Best experience in my life! Honest, good price and quality

Morning star was the best experience I ever have in my life. Dennys was in charge to organice my safari trip for me and my wife. After a few days talking and according hotels and parks he offered me a 7 days safari pack for and incredible price. Hotels and camps were beautiful. Every one has a unique thing. Food was fresh and tasty. We did the safari with Alex. This guy was one of the funniest, intelligent and honest I even seen. He was always there to help us and very patient when we want to take pictures or just rest for a little. One of the best drivers too. The 4x4 was incredible. No words to say thank you and we will love it to do it again because was awesome. And the hot air ballon is gorgeous !! Thank you my friends !!

Fantastic Kenya-based operator

We have just returned to the UK after an amazing holiday with Morning Star. When we booked, we had wanted to use a Kenya-based operator rather than a UK based one and were really impressed with Morning Star - and also their quoted price was was way less than any other companies too! Robert very patiently tailored our ever-changing itinerary plans - thank you so much!

All the hotels and lodges in Nairobi / Masai Mara / Nakuru / Amboseli / Tsavo / Diani Beach were great - we particularly recommend : Sarova Panafric in Nairobi, Ziwa Bush Lodge in Nakuru, and Papillon Reef at Diani Beach.

Our drivers for safaris up to Masai Mara / Nakuru and then to Amboseli / Tsavo were fantastic - prompt, knowledgeable etc - especially Alex who also drove us around Nairobi on a 'memory-lane' tour, to friends homes and came along to church with us on Sunday too!!

Thank you Morning Star - we have no hesitation in recommending you to other travellers - top, top service!!!!

Simply Superb…. And Amazing….!

We (family of 4), have just spent the most amazing week on Safari with Morning Star Safaris in Kenya. Dennis did the most amazing job putting together a customised itinerary for us, which included game reserves (Masai Mara/ Amboseli), Lakes (Nakuru/ Naivasha), cycling in Hell’s Gate, a walking safari as well as meeting and spending time with a Masai tribe. Morning Star provided a brilliant personalised brochure including a breakdown of all of the costs, and Dennis himself almost always responded within a couple of hours, we don’t think he ever slept! Thank you Dennis…Our then there was our Guide… Alex! What a legend! He met us at the airport in a brand new Land Cruiser and took us on the most amazing adventure… Alex has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the the parks, the animals, the birds, the fauna as well as a forensic knowledge of Kenyan culture, history, politics, music, movies and sport… his passion, energy, enthusiasm and humour were infectious, it felt like he was a member of the family by the end of the trip, not just our safari tour guide… thank you Alex! You’re a legend…and thank you Morning Star for helping make our trip to Kenya, the trip of a lifetime.

Amazing! Extremely responsive & professional! Highly recommend!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Morning Star! Dennis, our Tour Consultant, organized every detail of our 11-day Safari/Beach Tour. He was so delightful to work with! Dennis is very responsive (I often wondered if he slept - he responded to emails all day/night), and alleviated all my concerns immediately. The accommodations he selected were beyond beautiful. And the activities he suggested were perfect for our 2 families. He thought of everything, and every detail was beautiful presented in itinerary.
Dennis arranged all the details of our itinerary - then Alex and David, our Tour Guides, executed the plan perfectly. From the moment they all greeted us at the airport - I knew we were in good hands! We were busy, on the move most of the trip, but Alex and David kept us on schedule and handled every aspect (not an easy task with 10 adults/teenagers). We went to 5 National Parks, saw tons of animals, went on a Hot Air Balloon, a boat ride thru Hippos, a bike ride thru Hells Gate, many game drives, visited a village and a school, snorkeled in the Indian Ocean, rode Camels on the beach and stayed at breathtaking accommodations - and everything went so smoothly! We just sat back and enjoyed the journey while Alex and David managed everything.
The Safari Jeeps are new, and in great condition - we even had a mini-fridge and wi-fi in the Jeep!
Overall, the hospitality of Kenya is amazing! At every accommodation we were greeted warmly and completely pampered, they truly strive to make your stay perfect!
Thank you Dennis, Alex & David, and the entire Morning Star Tours team for making our Kenya trip so memorable! I know this was an experience we will never forget! I am so grateful!

Amazing experience!

I went on a two day Safari to Amboseli. The experience was amazing. I appreciated the service and responsiveness of Morningstar tours throughout. They contacted me early on to help me clarify my wishes and iron out any issues with booking. In the days before the tour, they sent me timely reminders and made arrangement for hotel pickup. Driver was very friendly and serviceable. The game drives were amazing with the driver finding the best spots to see animals. The lodge was great too. Would definitely book with Morningstar again.

Listened to what we wanted, planned a great trip and delivered exactly as expected

We had a spare day in Nairobi and contacted several tour organisers with our ideas of what we wanted to do. Morningstar Tours stood out because they responded promptly and proposed an excellent itinerary that demonstrated they had listed too what we wanted. It was a full day trip (7am to 7pm) and was well organised and delivered by a good driver and guide. We were very happy and would recommend this company. The consultant (Jospeh) was very good and marinated good contact with us until the day before the trip. It is difficult booking trips with operators overseas when you don't really know the pedigree of the company, but I can say that Morningstar delivered exactly what we wanted.

Excellent day trip from Nairobi to Lake Elementaita with professional service

We had a day spare in Nairobi so organised a day tour with JoySharon at Morningstar. She was most attentive to our needs, very prompt in all replies and completely professional. We wanted to see flamingos and so travelled out to Lake Elementaita. There were not many companies offering a trip to this lake, however when I suggested it JoySharon was happy to accommodate the request. We then came back to Nairobi to visit the Giraffe centre. Our guide Alex was excellent. He was punctual, charming and extremely knowledgeable about birds. We can highly recommend Morningstar as a excellent safari company.

Reliable, adaptable guide with good pre-safari communication

This was a competitively priced mid-level four-day safari visiting 3 reserves in Kenya: Masai Mara, Laka Naivasha, and Hell's Gate. Morningstar Tours worked with us to customize our experience, for example we were able to request a bit of hiking time to go with our driving time, visit a Masai village, and at the end two of our party were dropped at the Nairobi airport while the other two were dropped in the Nairobi Central Business District. Our guide Dominic was excellent, knowledgeable and helpful. He skillfully guided us into the heart of the Masai Mari to see some fantastic wildlife. The Lake Naivasha boat ride was an excellent way to see hippos and lovely birds. The only hiccup in the trip was that during our planned afternoon visit to Hell's Gate, an enormous crowd was gathered to watch the WRC Safari Rally at Hell's Gate that same day. It would have been great if the tour company had foreseen this giant traffic jam and switched our planned day to visit Hell's Gate.
