In one word,Priceless

My wife and I visited Kenya August 2019 for the first time with a small group of 6 photographers. What an amazing trip!
Joseph and Tony were extremely knowledgeable of the parks we visited as well as the behavior of the wildlife.
They understand photography and put us in the best positions possible for excellent lighting and composition.
They were also very personable and attentive to any requests.
They even taught us some Swahili !
I highly recommend Joseph and his company

Amazing Kenya with Joseph Mwangi

I recently spent two weeks in Kenya visiting the Samburu Game Reserve, OL Pejeta Conservancy, Lake Naivasha, and both sides of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Our guide, Joseph Mwangi, was nothing short of outstanding. His passion and wealth of knowledge provided me with a truly memorable experience. His vast knowledge of birds and wildlife gave us numerous opportunities to see and photograph an abundance of various wildlife. Joseph's years of experience in the bush allowed us ample opportunity to get to where the action always was. Whether it is was a leopard with a kill, a rhino with a baby, or the Great Wildebeest Migration, we were able to get to see and photograph all of beautiful Kenya. Not only is Joseph extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Kenya and its wildlife but he is also the kindest, funniest, and most personable guide you could ever have. This was a truly remarkable experience and I highly recommend everyone use Joseph's services for an amazing and unforgettable experience!

Instant reply, well organized trip and experienced, patient, professional guidance to our trip

Thanks for Joe's trip plan and it is really helped to see almost every single animal in this country. Cheetah, Leopard, Elephant, Lion family, Vulture, White Rhino, Giraffe, Buffalo, Buck, etc....

Amboseli, Nakuru and Masai Mara are the selected places to be visited. With Edwin's guidance, we were to able to take tons of splendid pictures in those areas in limited times. and most importantly, we are lucky to see the wildebeest migration and crocodile killing and preying one of them in the river.

Camp accommodation and services are far beyond our expectation, good experience there.

I definitely will recommend my friends if they have any interest of visiting this magical land.

Amazing experience from the beginning to the ending of trip!


My first safari experience was in Kenya, an unforgettable 2 weeks that brought sightings of each one of the Big Five and to watch my only glimpse of lions and cheetah on a hunt!! 

The journey began from Nairobi heading north to Samburu and went down to Sweetwater, Lake Naivasha and ended at Maasai Mara. We had a great safari with Joseph and Tony (2 group members, 2 cars). We saw a lot of beautiful animals during the 12 days. Cheetah, leopard, serval cat, hippos, hyenas, zebras, warthogs, dik-dik, giraffe, and many more you name it! Joseph & Tony are a well experienced guides with a very good knowledge of animals and Kenya. They are also a safe and reliable driver. They found a good alternative to the bad road to Masai Mara. Tony was a driver of my group, he literally knows everything about every single animal. It’s amazing when he foreseeing the behavior patten of animals and it turned out exactly like what he told - we all learned so much from him. 

This was by far our best experience. It exceeded our expectations and we were so lucky with what we saw. If I was to do a safari again it would definitely be in the Masai Mara and definitely with Joseph & Tony and Nature's Wonderland Company!

Good Job!!

Knows his Stuff

I got in contact with Joseph about a report of a Cape Eagle Owl I’d heard of that I thought he might know something about. He was incredibly gracious and knowledgeable and assisted me in locating and organizing to see the owl. Would highly recommend his services for those seeking to find the lesser known species in this part of the world.

Wonderful birding trip,including mammals exciting playing in the wild

It's a wonderful birding trip,21-day. Thanks lot to Joseph,our birding guide.We've got more than 480 bird species and more than 50 mammals,6 reptiles. We espcially had deep impression about various behaviors from Lions,Cheetals and Leopards. Joseph is very sensitive with the bird's sound. He is a very professional birding guide in Kenya and familiar with the birds site.

Joseph and his colleges, the drivers, Antony and David, give us kindly service. The arrangements are very good,I especially like the arrangements in Rondo Retreat and Massi Mara.

Wish we could have chance back to Kenya! Best wishes to you all!

Wonderful! Great Attention to Detail! Great Wildlife!

Nature's Wonderland Safari took us on a 10 day tour of 2 national parks in Kenya! We saw so much wildlife! Our teenage children enjoyed the trip, and our tour guide was individually taking care of us, so we were able to see whatever we wanted to see in a comfortable jeep. We had plenty of refreshments and comfort on our ride. The highlight was staying in the Masai Mara in very nice tents! The food was great and the people friendly. We way lions, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, elephants and more! Our guide was aware of what was safe to do and when we should stay in the car, so we felt comfortable the whole time. Kenya is beautiful and I'd definitely go again!

An amazing and memorable birding trip with Joseph Mwangi, a passionate and excellent safari guide

Everything was perfect! My only regret is that it was too short, due to my lack of time. Joseph organized and customized the trip perfectly, on very short notice. Excellent organisation! Accommodations were always comfortable, with good food, and well located to access to close-by birding sites. Joseph is a tireless and prudent driver in a good and comfortable car. He is very knowledgeable about the wildlife fauna of Kenya, knows very well species locations and how to identify them (visually but also very much on their calls and songs). He can tell you on species status, distribution, ecology... Moreover, Joseph is adaptable, patient and a pleasant trip companion. We saw plenty of species, more than my expectations in very good conditions, allowing to take back amazing picturial souvenirs. Really hope to have chance to come back on a longer trip and will definetely call Joseph. I warmly recommend his services.

Go With The Best

Nature’s Wonderland Safaris made the 10 days spent in Tanzania one of the best trips I have experienced. I wanted a birding and wildlife tour and Joseph Mwangi exceeded my expectations. The mammals in Tanzania were the prime objective but as a birder I also wanted to be able to ID birds we would see. We were overwhelmed by the wildlife that Joseph and Samuel, our driver, were able to find. The leopards and cheetahs that they found were the high points. Joseph excels in finding birds through hearing and picking them out in impossible spots. He was very helpful in not just IDing the birds but helping you focus in on the distinctive features to aid you in making the ID. The itinerary developed by Joseph was perfect and all the lodgings were extremely comfortable and had great food. Joseph has a very easy going personality with a wonderful sense of humor. He has a quiet competent sense about him that allows you to relax and take in all the wonder of Africa. Joseph’s ability to ID both birds and mammals made a huge difference in the quality of the trip. Tailoring a safaris to your needs is so important and Joseph can be trusted to deliver. I highly recommend Joseph and Nature’s Wonderland Safaris to anyone planning a birding or wildlife safaris to Tanzania or Kenya.

Five amazing days of safari

My wife and I booked a five day safari with Joseph and saw 275 species of birds and plenty of mammals including the "big five". Everything was well organised and I would not hesitate to recommend the company to others. I have met Joseph on three occasions since, twice at the Birdfair and once in Arabuko Sokoke forest when we were being guided by Albert Baya - both these guides are great people aswell as being great guides.
Joseph - are you still using the binoculars I gave you?
