My husband and I traveled to Kenya for business, but ended up having a few days to spare, so we threw together a very last minute trip to Masai Mara. When I called/emailed on a Thursday afternoon, Bernard from Lion Trails was the first to get back to me out of about a dozen safari companies in Nairobi that I... More

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we booked this day tour with Lion Trails Safaris. We had a lovely day with our guide, Oliver, who was quite knowledgable about animals, plants and birds. He was very savvy about where to look for certain species at a particular time of day and would double-back to a place when he heard on the... More

We booked Lion Trails as an add-on to a shorter safari we had already planned, and it was a great idea. next time I will let them handle everything! Bernard is the most accommodating, responsive person I think I have ever met. No question or concern was too small, and the company delivered everything they promised, and more. The two... More

Bernard and his team are exceptional! I am in the tourism industry and it is rare to find such competent, efficient, and passionate people. The Nairobi attack happened soon after we left Nairobi International airport on safari with Oliver, our driver and guide. We returned when things were still happening at the mall. The entire time we were on safari... More

I chosed the company "Lion Trials Safaries" exclusively on the recommendations of this site. And I don't regret. Firstly, the company offered me a itinerary that most closely meets my requests. Secondly, Bernard is opened for negotiations to agree on mutually beneficial conditions of the contract. Thirdly, the company indeed done a whole program accurately and at high professional level....

We had 3 separate day trips with Lion Trails for our spare time in Nairobi. We had the same driver/ guide for each of these days, Martin and we would have to say that he was friendly, accommodating to any suggestions that we made and so interesting to talk with. He was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited... More

We had a wonderful Safari. Martin Kamau, our driver was excellent and he really made the time so special. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Seeing the Wilderbeast charge down to the river and then change their minds and go back to the plains was amazing. Definitely worth a whole day out on safari as we could travel that... More

Four of us arranged a 11 night safari starting in Tanzania and concluding in Kenya. All could have come unstuck if it were not for Bernard's help in making alternative arrangements following disruption to travel plans because of the Nairobi Airport fire and also tracking down luggage that was subsequently lost We have used Lion Trails before and they continue...

As all other posters have said this is just a great little company. It was my first time to Africa and Im someone who likes to have everything organized and all my questions answered. I went back and forth with Bernard over email several months before our safari asking questions etc. Bernard was outstanding at promptly answering my emails as... More
