Best tour operator for Kenya - 10 days private Safari

We are enthusiast in nature and animals. Went last year in July on 7 days safari in Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire, decided to do it again this year and that we wanted to go to Kenya parks as well. I started to plan our trip quite late in March, but with the great help and suggestions of Noah from Wildebeest Safaris, who had always time for my endless questions we finally made a perfect plan, that we were able to see 5 of the Kenya's best NP. Since we were coming from Serengeti NP he arranged that our guide Denis picked us up on the border of Isebania and than we spent 2 days in Masai Mara, went to Nakuru NP which we loved it a lot. After this we went to Samburu national reserve for 2 days, where we were able to see all 5 endemic animals (Gerenuk, the Reticulated giraffe, the Somali ostrich, the Grevy's zebra, the Beisa oryx). On the way to OL Pajeta we saw Mt. Kenya. For the last two days we went to Amboselli. Our safari was in the begining of May which is low season and that was great, since in most camps and on Safari we were nearly the only guest and so got special treatment... had closer view to animals. The distances between parks are quite long, specially between OL Pajeta and Amboselli, but we really had good driver and guide named Denis, who was able to follow up with all our wishes to spend as much time as possible in the parks searching for animals. He was also a really good driver, since some roads were really not existing but he managed all of them. He also new a lot about animals and had many informations about different prides in some area of parks (how big is the pride, some history of each pride and some interesting stories about the animals). In Masai mara we saw two famous cheetah and were also able to see and follow leopard for nearly half an hour, we saw lions eating buffalo, we were in the middle of fight of 2 clans of nearly 50 hyenas and in Amboselli we could monitor how 7 lions were planing an attack on 2 warthogs. I must say, that it wasn't easy to please demanding clients as we are, but Noah and Denis managed everything. Noah is really patient and is trying to find the best solution for every our wish, he knows the bussines and was allways there for me, when I had some ideas or questions. He also suggested us to visit Nakuru NP (instead of Naiwasha) and Samburu instead of Tsawo, which we both really liked. And our guide and driver Denis did great job, since it was not easy to be fully concentrated on safe driving, surching for animals, answering on our questions and be out for the whole day from early morning till late evening. What to say at the end - I recomend this safari with Wildebeest Safaris to everyone. It's really nice to see the animals in their nature habitat and it's special experience.

This is the people you want to go on a safari with! No doubt.

Look no further, this is the company you want to make your safari dreams come true. We thoroughly researched all the options available and concluded Wildebeest safaris was the best for us. This decision proved to be the best we could have taken.
The arduous task of planning a trip to Africa was made easier once we got in contact with Noah. He created a tailored trip for us with the most practical itinerary and the best prices.
The accommodation selection was a pleasant surprise, may I recommend visiting Zebra Plains and Emabalakia Camp as this are a delightful memory to reminisce back to.

We encountered payment problems with our bank which prevented us from being able to liquidate the total of the safari, and in this aspect I MUST remark Noah was beyond comprehensive and helpful, he actively provided solutions and overall was patient while we figured out the way to make payment arrive. He never threatened to cut the safari short and the treatment we received was the same from start until payment was finalized.
This is something I really appreciate as speaks of his professionalism.

Another very important thing to remark is the quality of drivers he has taken under his wing. Dennis was a one-of-a kind safari guide. his extensive knowledge of the animals and their behavioral traits made an even more pleasant experience, he also many times went out of the way to get us as close to the animals as possible. We grew fond of Dennis and hope we can keep in touch with him!
Our other driver was Hamsa, a very experienced driver in Tanzania that was also beyond knowledgeable and furthermore had an amazing eye for photography, he understands lighting and position and this proved amazing as we are now seeing the photos we took.

Overall this experience was a 10/10
I would recommend all my friends to go with wildebeest without a doubt.
I encourage you to take on the safari challenges just make sure you have wildebeest by your side!

Great adventure, very knowledgeable driver, beautiful accommodation selections.

This was second time I used this smaller tour operator, and again I asked for the driver/ tracker (Hamza Nyelo) for a Semi- Luxury Private Tour. There is no doubt that amongst his peers Hamza is very well respected. We often were the first to spot the more challenging animals such as leopards, and others drivers would be called in. With shy animals you have to be one of the first to arrive, leopards for example will quickly retreat into deeper cover. Hamza is so knowledgeable in all aspects, from tracking footprints, watching animal behavior, bird spotting, and identifying and naming plants, the history of the parks and Tanzania, and is also an excellent driver across all terrains and conditions. He also has a very open and wonderfully caring personality. This all adds additional quality to the overall safari experience, as you explore the enormity and biodiversity of the Tarangire and Serengeti national parks. We went and followed the migration as the Wildebeests and Zebra are giving birth in February, it was amazing to see and experience this in the Southern Serengeti and around Lake Ndutu .

The camp sites and lodges selected by the operator was also excellent, particularly the Lake Burunge and Tanzania Bush tented camps. We had animals all around in each case, the beautiful sight of a small herd of elephants about 150 meters from back of the Lake Ndutu Safari lodge, to multiple lions roaring outside the Tanzania Bush tented camp as you fall a sleep is etched into the memory. The food quality and selections, and general comfort was also excellent from each of the overnight sites, along with the friendly service and security from the animals.

A highly recommend life experience, with extremely great value for money.

Best drivers in Kenya

We had an amazing experience on this tour with our expert driver Jeff. Our journeys between towns was efficient and safe whilst his off roading safari skills got us really close to the animals! He could spot a rhino’s butt from kilometres way. All accommodation and food provided was also faultless, highly recommend this company.

Excellent customer experience

My husband and I went on our Kenyan Safari honeymoon at the Maasai Mara planned by Wildebeest Safaris. Very professional. Communication was great from the beginning. We got an amazing and very knowledgeable driver and guide who had a very good land cruiser. This company went above and beyond to ensure we are comfortable and we really enjoyed the hospitality. They kept checking on us yo ensure we we're enjoying our stay. Airport pick up and drop off were smooth. Looking forward to our next Safari organised by them.

The best safari experience ever!

WOW just WOW! If we could leave 10 stars we would most certainly do this!

From the moment we arrived in Nairobi, Noah was waiting for us outside the airport even while it was around midnight. We were brought to our hotel (overnight stay) where we got an update by Noah about our upcoming safari. The next day we were picked up at the hotel to get our flight from Wilson to the Masai Mara. When we arrived in the Mara, Dennis was already waiting there to welcome us, boy oh boy what an amazing guide he is! He is so passionate about wildlife, nature, the environment! Just the way we love it AND the way all guides should be! Like we told Dennis on our last evening this was an A++++++++++++++ safari experience! Our safari was more then we could have asked for or have dreamed of!

Everything that was written and promised by Noah in the itinerary became true! A real dream safari/holiday!
Truly if you are planning to go on a safari, just book your dream safari experience with Wildebeest Safaris Ltd. You will not regret it for a second!
