Amazing Kenya Wildlife Safari To Amboseli & Masai Mara

by AfricanMecca Safaris / Tuesday, 10 March 2020 / Published in AfricanMecca Reviews For Safaris, Beach & Tours

Amazing Kenya Wildlife Safari To Amboseli & Masai Mara

Below Review First Appeared On Our Google Reviews Page

I just returned from a safari with AfricanMecca last week, August 3-8 2019 and my experience was absolutely amazing. I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GREAT THINGS ABOUT THIS COMPANY AND THE EXPERIENCE. The staff at each location went above and beyond my expectations in more ways than I can possibly mention in this limited space for review.

First… we arrived 5-6 hours late into Nairobi Kenyatta airport, about 2:30 a.m. to find that our African Mecca rep has WAITED that entire time for us.  Our airline lost some of our luggage, and again, our African Mecca rep helped us report it, transporting us to hotel and checking us in.  While we were on the first leg of our safari, our African Mecca rep located the missing luggage at Kenyatta airport, transported it over to Wilson Airport, and had it waiting for us on the runway in between prop flights so that we could grab it and continue on our safari with all of our packed provisions.  This, in my opinion, is exemplary service and dedication to our comfort which deserves recognition.  Thank you so much Nicole!

We flew to Amboseli the first night, Governor’s camp the next two, and Karen Blixen the final two days.  All accommodations were exactly as shown in the photos, perhaps even better in person.  Clean, well kept, super comfortable. Food always plentiful and enough variety to find things that you liked from the many choices presented.  Staff UNBELIEVABLY service oriented and willing to go beyond normal expectations for personal requests.

The game drives were amazing – each time, we saw something we hadn’t seen before.  We saw all of the big 5, most of them several feet from our vehicle.  At Karen Blixen they are allowed to drive off the main roads,  which means they will drive you right up and onto lions, leopards, wildebeests, hyenas, jackals, vultures, elephants, giraffes, etc RIGHT NEXT TO the car. Experience is unlike anything in your wildest dreams. We went on a night drive, ended up within viewing distance of TWO kills, one a lion, and the other, cheetah brothers, which were chased away by hyenas, who were chased away by lions, and then had a little lion/cheetah fight followed by two male lions showing and a female engaging them in a chase to protect her 4 cubs which we had been watching for several days.

For those of you who are environmentally or socially conscious, TAKE THE CAMP TOUR at Karen Blixen camp, find out how they cook and clean and garden and use solar grids for sustainability, meet the students in the cooking school there, and walk past the dormitories where the 65 people that work there live. It WILL CHANGE you.

Just an additional  note on GAME DRIVES – I have visited several American national parks and have spent hours looking for animals… on these safaris, be prepared, there are animals EVERYWHERE and you will see more of them than you are prepared for closer than you could ever hope, in many instances. Our safari guide Twala had been doing it for over 30 years and knew the animals extremely well.

After our safari was over, Nicole was there to greet us and take us to our next great Kenyan adventure, which was a traditional wedding of my son to the love of his life, a young lady from Kenya whom he met in U.S. during college.  Raza from African Mecca had taken the time to provide me with some invaluable information on the wedding customs and expectations, all of which are very different from here in the U.S., and I was so grateful for this insight and felt so much more at ease while there.  Thank you so much Raza for investing yourself in my situation and providing such fantastic recommendations and guidance.  This trip could not possibly have been as easy and stress free without your constant help and guidance.

Asante Sana, Raza and African Mecca!
