It is eco camp, with electricity from 5-7 am and 7-10 pm and hot water any time. Its was kind of adventure for me! I really loved it. Food was good. Especially... More

I had a terrible experience with big time safaris. Dangerous driving on the way to Masai Mara, dishonest tour company. Dark tents with lights not put on until well after dark. Food was average at best. Tents dirty and poorly maintained. Avoid this company

First I'll start by saying that we had an amazing trip, saw many animals, our drivers were good, and Big Time was much cheaper than the other safari trips that I read about online. However, I'm rating them a 2 because if you sign up with Big Time, you should understand what you may be getting into. They are slightly... More

A group of 6 of us wanted to go to Africa on our two week break. Working with Big Time Safari was so easy and they helped us create a safari so we could see exactly what we wanted in our time and budget. Martha was amazing to work with from pre-planning stages until we arrived in Africa. Once on... More

I went on a budget safari with Big Time in July and I have already recommended the company to all my colleagues in Kenya! I went on the four day budget safari to Maasai Mara/Lake Nakuru. Saw pretty much everything there is to see, and on the third day heading towards Nakuru, we stopped for a fun boat tour of... More

If you want cocktails in a luxury lodge, then this is not the holiday for you - the clue is in budget camping safari. If you want a great holiday looking at loads of animals (surely the point of a safari) THEN THIS IS THE HOLIDAY FOR YOU! We have just returned from a weeks safari with Big Time Safaris,... More

If you are not interested in luxury, this camp is definetely worth to stay in (for its value). Its location is very good and the staff is very friendly. Food was not bad when I compare it to other meals we had in Africa.
