A great trip, wonderfully organized
Murielle and Nicole organized a fantastic trip for us in the Mara North Conservancy. He found the package that was exactly within our budget and time frame for travelling. Planet Africa Safari also provides a wonderful guide to planning for the trip so we knew what to bring, which vaccines were required, and even estimates of how much to tip all the wonderful staff at Mara Bush House. The tour and guide provided by the house was also amazing, we were able to see so much more than we expected. We will be definitely coming back again!

It's now the 2nd time I booked a safari with Planet Africa Safaris. First time was a 10day Safari and 1 week on Zansibar, Pongwe Beach Hotel. We are just back from our 2nd safari an all I can say is: The Organisation is perfect. Correspondance by e-mail always very good. Excellent planning and recommandation of the lodges...just tell them what is your idea and at least in 48 hours you'll get a made to order itinerary. Prices are always very reasonable. What we liked is that nearly everything is possible, nothing seems to be a problem. The tour guides (we had Jackson Mbise, Harry Lucas, Venant and Kivuyo) are excellent. If you plan a private safari, it's also possible to go with Planet Africa Safaris.
One of our best travel experiences.

Attentive Team Helped Us Plan Best Family Trip Ever
Planet Africa absolutely nailed it. They worked closely with us to make sure they understood what we wanted to accomplish and to fit our budget. They explored different options and presented them to us to consider. They were able to tell us about each of the specific properties at which we stayed so we could make informed decisions. And then while we were in Kenya, everything was seamless - from our arrival at NBO, to multiple in-country flights, to our departure. Planet Africa made it incredibly easy.
Amazing honeymoon with Planet Africa
The two-week honeymoon to Tanzania and Zanzibar we planned with Planet Africa was absolutely incredible! The Planet Africa team was very knowledgeable, helped us to craft a unique itinerary, and were easily able to accommodate the specific requests we had of places to stay or activities we wanted to do. We were very impressed by most of the lodges and hotels suggested by Planet Africa. The logistics of the trip and transfers between locations and guides were seamless, which meant we didn’t have to worry about anything. We would highly recommend working with Planet Africa!

Exciting itinerary, exceptional camp selections, seamless logistic
We were planning to travel in November/December. This would be our third trip to Tanzania and longest with 14 camp nights. We wanted to explore new areas. Moreover, our international flight arrived at Nairobi and we did not want to have an extra hotel night commuting to Arusha. All these presented a few challenges. Leah at Planet Africa expertly put together an unique safari circuit that accommodated our many requests. After an overnight hotel stay in Nairobi, we started our safari the very next day in central Serengeti at Namiri, a quiet and exciting area where cat sightings outnumbered car sightings by a wide margin. Then on to the Crater for a short respite. The game drive was tamer there but great hikes were the reason we went there. Afterward we headed to Ruaha, the definite highlight of this trip. This park reminded us our first safari, in Kenya, bush instead of open plain. The terrain made the drive more challenging and proportionally more rewarding. We completed the circuit travelling to southern Serengeti. The best part of this trip was the variations, in terrain, climate, encounter, and activities. This is our third trip by Planet Africa. Leah provided us vastly different itineraries that met our criteria. Questions were quickly answered and alternatives proposed, with great follow up and reminders as the departure date neared. For our next East Africa trip, we will call them again.

Excellent in every way
Excellent service. Prior to departure there was a lot of useful advice which made our trip go much more smoothly. All of the arrangements were faultless, from start to finish we were well looked after and made to feel like royalty with the attention to detail.
Very impressed with the extra special detail of arranging a surprise birthday cake which the trip was celebrating. I would recommend Plant Africa and I would definitely use them again.

Exquisite and personalized Kilimanjaro and Safari Honeymoon
Planet Africa Safaris Helped us every step of the way. They booked all accommodations, transportation, and worked within our budget to ensure we had an amazing honeymoon. Leah and her team put together a trip of a lifetime, preparing us and providing us with detailed itineraries (including one for our family and friends to follow us on our journey), as well as ensuring all travel within Africa was completely seamless. Our accommodations were extremely comfortable and all drivers were waiting for us at the appropriate times and were in comfortable vehicles. Trip was seamless and highly recommend Planet Africa Safaris!

Fabulous 9 Day East African Safari Courtesy of Planet Africa Safaris!
Just returned from the above "dream" vacation with my family of 4. Entire trip was booked courtesy of Mary and Leah from Planet Africa Safaris. We stayed in 3 high end tented camps in Kenya (Ol Pejeta Bush Camp, Rekero Camp, and Naboisho Camp). We flew between the first two camps and then flew from Naboisho back to Nairobi for departure. Given all of the logisitics re flights, intercamp travels, and lodgings, Planet Africa Safaris should get 10 stars for their service. Every single detail was planned perfectly and we were treated in the utmost professional manner. Furthermore, I honestly believe the 3 camps we chose (at Mary's recommendation) were the 3 best in all of Kenya! Spectacular trip - I can't thank the team at Planet Africa Safaris enough for their help. Will definitely recommend them to anyone interested in going to Africa in the future.

Absolutely incredible trip - exceeded all of our expectations!
The safari trip we planned through Planet Africa was phenomenal! We had such an amazing time and loved every day - somehow each day kept getting better and better. We were there to see animals, and our expectations were far exceeded. We saw so many incredible animals up close, and the guides were incredible, especially at Namiri Plains. They had so much information, and were so excited to explain to us everything about the animals, the camp, the country, and anything else that was relevant. They not only answered all of our questions, but provided a ton of additional information and are genuinely passionate about what they do.
In addition to the guides, the servers, managers and Maasai helpers - everyone was just great! I can't say enough good things about the level of service and attention to detail. They were so attentive and made sure that everything was cared for, from greeting us with rosewater towels each time we got back from safari to making sure our wine glasses were always full. We were also very impressed with how well organized everything was. Everything worked like clockwork, nothing was every late or wrong, from the 5:30am in-room coffee service to the person on hand to escort us to our rooms in the evening. We were both incredibly impressed with how well run all of the camps were...and with the food - it was amazing! The food was one of our favorite parts of the trip, we were always looking forward to meals. I wish I could find food this good where we live! Every camp did an amazing job with recipes and accommodating vegetarians. The camp locations were second to none, and we loved being in the middle of the parks and the action each night. All in all, we had an absolutely amazing trip and we would recommend this company to anyone looking to see a lot of animals, eat amazing food, and meet great people.
