Discover the Heart of a Kenyan Safari with Wildebeest Safaris
5/5

We are absolutely delighted by the services of Wildebeest! Since we were going to be first-timers on a safari, we thought it would require an immense amount of wading through the internet to come up with a plan. But Wildebeest made it seem effortless. Their response to our very first email of inquiry was super-fast. And then, acting upon a few of our suggestions, they fashioned a perfect itinerary for us - within budget. There were no surprises along the way. Everything was delivered as promised, on schedule, from beginning to end. Noah was personable on our first meeting in Nairobi, and gave us a warm sense of assurance about the trip in the offing. But most of all, it was our tour guide-cum-driver, Eustace, who made the entire safari come alive for us. He was with us from day 1 to day 7. He was what every family of 4 needs - warm, knowledgeable, interactive, cheerful, pleasant, not-in-your-face, and very efficient. Most of all, his love of his job, the land, and the animal kingdom showed through in his earnest presentation of a Kenyan Safari to us. We would definitely recommend Wildebeest experience to everyone!

Great experience on 10 day Tanzania & Zanzibar Safari
5/5

Just returned from our fifth safari (our son and daughter-in-law's first) and first with Wildebeest. Plusses: Noah at Wilderbeest did a great job in helping us plan, everything was as per itinerary, no unpleasant surprises, no nickel and diming, saw the big 5. Would absolutely recommend a private tour. Four of us (plus diver-guide Syedi) in our own landcruiser for a week, meant more flexibility to stay as long or as short each time we saw animals. This worked well as on two days it was so hot - and the amount of animals we saw so rich - that getting back to the lodge for a swim mid afternoon was perfect. Food and accommodation was good to breathtakingly superb. Have been on luxury safaris before and this was as good without all the added expense. (Only difference I noted was no exposure to game food on the menu, driving not flying to remote areas, and paying for drinks which were dirt cheap anyway). Paid a little extra to stay at Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge - well worth it for the world stopping view over the caldera. Recommend visiting Olduvai Gorge in the Rift Valley (birthplace of homo sapiens). Adding Zanzibar at the end was really nice. This land safari was both very dusty and exhausting, so two days of pampered luxury at Ocean Paradise was perfect. Outstandingly, every place we stayed at left us wishing we could stay more, with the next place being even better (especially Buruge Tented Camp and Ocean Paradise). A good guide makes or breaks the safari. Our driver-guide for the safari, Syedi - was excellent, spoke good English, and with 6+ years' experience spotting game - was amazing spotting animals, including leopard, cheetah, and lion. Negatives: I insisted of staying at one site and I wish I had taken Noah's advice to upgrade elsewhere, as it led to two long days driving to where there were less animals. Recommend always answer ANY question about Africa with: "What would you recommend?" and not a preference (as they really do look out for you but culturally will defer to whatever you want). As a gay couple in a country where homosexuality is illegal, LGBT activism still in its infancy, and many staff Muslim, some places assumed we had to be brothers (so we were given twin beds - not a big deal for us after 16 years). To other gay couples - it felt safe and fine, but discretion is needed in a country where the laws against us are actively enforced. To disabled travelers - Bill injured his leg badly getting to the safari, and amazingly, either there were wheelchairs or staff just carried him anywhere he needed to go - no problem! Finally, to newbies, the anxious, and those considering this for a honeymoon: Go for it. The level of courtesy, quality, attention to detail, and care we received on this safari (and the other 4) far exceeds what you get in an American 5-star hotel. Tip: US$ worked well everywhere we went for tipping, souvenirs, etc. so no need to get lots of shillings and pay conversion fees. An amazing 15 out of 10 experience - so worth it.

Safari of Our lifetime
5/5

We were a party of eight and we had a great time. Our company was "Wildebeest Safari" and our contact was Noah Kuti. The tour guides/safary drivers were Kibit and Rony (in Kanya) and Peter (in tanzania). They were all wonderful. The key is to have outstanding guides who know how to spot wild animals and take the effort to show them to you. We were very luck to have excellent guides. The places we stayed were wonderful as well.

Organised and professional
5/5

I had a wonderful experience with Wildebeest Safaris to Kenya & Tanzania. Wonderful hotels and our guides, Ian, Ayouboo and Eustace were very knowledgeable, extremely courteous and full of humour. I asked Noah if he could organize a tour to South Africa, specifically the Garden Route, for us and this too was so well paced and planned and again what beautiful hotels. The only drawback, "The Road to Masai Mara" if one can even call it that! Can the authorities not do something to improve it. All in all, I would not hesitate to travel with Wildebeest Safaris again - Noah, Ian, Ayouboo & Eustace thank you once again for a wonderful holiday.

Fun experience with trusted drivers

Wildebeest is great, with minor hiccup but nothing that dent the fun and adventure we had. The itinerary arranged was good and flexible enough to accommodate a couple of members delayed flight. Accommodation provided was excellent. We highly recommend Wildebeest.

Memorable experience
5/5

We booked a 11-day safari tour covering Kenya and Tanzania. We visited 6 parks / places - Amboseli, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha.

Right from the first time I contacted Noah through this website, he was very prompt in responding to my e-mails and accommodated changes in itinerary. I planned the itinerary and Noah arranged all the hotel bookings, airport transfers, transfer between the locations and game drives. The trip was organized really well by Noah - no last minute surprises, minimal waiting time between transfers, clean and well-maintained cars, he even managed to get rooms as per my preference.

Hamza was our guide in Tanzania. He knew the parks very well, very friendly, always on time for safaris (infact, we were the ones always late). He told us a lot of interesting information not only about the animals in the park, but also about the countryside in Tanzania.

In kenya, Dennis was our guide for 5 days. Knowledgeable and friendly, but what we appreciated the most is his enthusiasm. He really went out of the way to ensure that we get to see all the wild animals that we wanted to. He continuously co-ordinated with other guides in the park to ensure maximum wildlife sightings in the time available to us. We managed to see big 5, mara river crossing, crocodiles, wildebeest migration, numerous birds and even the elusive rhino. We really can't thank him enough for his assistance.

Thanks to wildebeest safaris for making this trip memorable for us. I highly recommend wildebeest to anyone planning an East African safari.

5/5

Wildebeest Safari's is the correct company to choose when traveling to Eastern Africa if your looking to be taken care of from start to finish. Whether your on a budget or want premium luxury, Wildebeest Safaris is there to provide you with everything you need. From the excellent drivers/guides, to the variety of accommodations they recommend, Wildebeest really helps to customize your perfect adventure.

Wildebeest really provides excellent customer service and offers everything you could possibly need when booking an African Safari. With contact agents in both Africa and the US now, I can see the company begin to really expand and grow to offer services in more countries around other parts of Africa.

Wonderful experience

Even Lydia joint us, who was on an apprenticeship, what especially my wife very appreciated. We visited Mount Meru park, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire. All was fantastic and very amazing. The support of the office (Noah Kuti) was outstanding. Great thanks to everyone who was involved to arrange and manage these wonderful days !

Value for money
5/5

Four of us went on a 8 day private safari to Kenya and Tanzania with Wilderbeest safari. From the start the service provided by Noah was excellent and professional. What was even better was that the cost was very reasonable when compared with that offered by other agents. The lodges/tented camps were all very good and comfortable and were beyond our expectations. The driver/guides were also all very knowledgable and professional and the vehicles clean and comfortable. Based on my experience I would recommend highly Wilderbeest safari.
