Great Excursion!
5/5

Wildebeest is a superb company! They came to the rescue when another person was unable to take us to the parks. The guide was kind, professional and knowledgeable. His peaceful and easy going demeanor made my party and me feel comfortable and secure. I highly recommend Wildebeest! They are fabulous at what they do.

Nakuru and Maasai Mara tour
5/5

The tour exceeded our expectations. Both hotels provided great service, although we liked the Sarova Lion Hill lodge better than the Serena Mara lodge. The vehicle was very comfortable.
The tour guide was excellent. Responsible, polite, extremely well informed, went the extra mile to find the animals (all big five, including a leopard!). Exceeded our expectations.
The balloon trip was amazing.

trip of a life time with Wildebeest Safaris
5/5

We booked an almost two week safari trip through Kenya by land cruiser . From our first email, Noah was always willing to answer any questions. He was able to organize for us the trip of a life time. All the lodges were outstanding, food was great, and we cannot say enough about our guide and driver Andrew. Andrew was very knowledgeable about all the animals we saw and he was very accomodating and always willing to answer any question we had. We really missed him after being with us for the entire trip. Kenya is an absolutely stunning country. We can recommend Wildebeest Safaris and would go again with them if we would have the opportunity.

An amazing experience and one I will cherish forever
5/5

Though there was some communication delays between myself and Wildebeestsafaris prior to my departure, I was able to obtain all the information I needed and had few issues.
My Safari guide, Dennis; was exceptional. He did not rush me through my experience. Was in communication with other guides on great photo ops and answered all of my questions.
On the way to and from the Nature Reserve, though it is part of the tourist business to stop for breaks at gift shop areas, he did not pressure me in doing so. On the trip back he even asked if I wanted to visit anymore shops.
We had some vehicle issues on the way back to Nairobi and had to stop in a town to get it fixed. Actually ended up being part of the whole experience. got to People watch for an hour or so and mingle a little with the locals.
The Safari was on my bucket list and I am glad I got to mark it off. I would surely put it back into my bucket so I could do another one in the future.
Wonderful experience and again, Dennis was an amazing guide

Solo American Travels on Safari to Kenya and Tanzania with Wildesbeestsafaris.com
5/5

I traveled from the United States to go on safari in Kenya and Tanzania, and traveled alone as I had booked a solo safari. I was picked up at my hotel in Nairobi (The Sarova Stanley), and was in the company of Eustis, a safari guide that is employed with Wildebeest Safaris. Immediately I felt comfortable as his command of English is VERY good. As we proceeded to the Masai Mara ( the Kenyan Side of the Serengeti), Eustis was extremely knowledgable of seemingly every aspect of this landscape, as well as the wildlife that was there.
The lodges and accomodations were good throughout the journey( some of the lodges were exceptionally nice). The Kijereshi Tented Camp, Dove Nest Lodge and Kibo Safari Camps, were exceptional.
Overall I had an exceptional journey in Kenya and Tanzania and was extremely appreciative to Eustis and David, my safari guides.
I would recommend Wildebeest Safaris to ANY American tourist looking to go on Safari, whether solo, or with family.

Great Overall--A Few Issues
4/5

Positive: Noah works with you to customize and he does it all at a very, very good price. I asked for Luxury hotels/lodges and all were wonderful, including a few we requested specially. Our driver was smart and well-informed and affable. We saw all the same stuff everyone else saw, possibly even a little more as Mike was pretty in the know and has been doing this 10 years.

The initial (and all) Communication with Noah was great--he is very responsive and willing to take a lot of time. The downside was that maybe I didn't ask all the right questions or get across to him that I wanted to spend the least amount of time in the car. As such, our route involved a bit of backtracking and as one is in those cars on bad roads enough as it is, the backtracking sucks. In the future I would fly to Serengeti and go one way to Arusha (or vice versa) if you have the money, hitting all the parks on the way. Also, spend 2 nights at each hotel if you can afford it. Hotels are nice with good food and it makes the trip less rushed and more relaxing--just my preference.

A few Downsides: The vehicle is old and sort of a POS. When it rained, our stuff got soaked--even in the suitcases. And when it rained or was cold, since neither the air or blower or wipers worked, it was sort of a disaster. As it is an old model, the windows are shorter so it is tougher to see out comfortably. I think it may be time for a vehicle upgrade and I would pay more for a company with a better vehicle and one cleaned a little more often.

Driver/guide Downside: Again, Mike was overall very good, however he talked loudly a lot on his cell phone both during game drives and even in our hotels. Was really, really annoying. I think in the future I would also request a non-smoking guide, but I really liked Mike and probably would go with him again anyway.

Other Downside: They were not waiting to pick us up when we arrived at the airport to start the safari. No big deal, but when I called I felt the reason they gave--too much traffic in Arusha (??)--was not credible. They were 45 mins late and everybody else seemed there on time. Not very apologetic about it either. I think they forgot we were coming on that flight.

But overall, a good experience at a good price and I would recommend Wildebeest (with a few modifications (car and routing) next time).


You spend a whole lot of time in the car on rough roads in these safaris, so I was hoping to minimize that. We ended up doing a lot of backtracking and as I had no idea of the area, I think they could have helped me avoid that. (Tip: Fly to Serengett if you have the $ and then backtrack to Arusha (or vice versa) and fly out from there. The round trip is too much driving.
