Our main worry while negotiating our trip with Bernard from Lion Trails Safaris was this company looked "too good to be true". We have seen no one negative (or even «non-excellent») review here on Tripadvisor. Bernard was very flexible to built the route with respect to all our numerous desires, he gave valuable advises to us, and all the points of our agreement were set very clear.
We were happy to be met by Bernard in Nairobi airport just in time and to see the excellent jeep provided to us. All the lodges we had requested were provided to us. All the details of our agreement were fulfilled by Lion Trails completely and they often did a little more for us.
Our driver-guide Jackson was really cool both in driving and in finding the animals. With him we have never regret we had chosen jeep instead of minivan. We had our very first game drive in Aberdare mountain park in a rainy day. I believe the mountain rainy forest gives not so much chances to see big animals, but Jackson managed to drive us through the washed-out roads and to show us the elephants, buffaloes, and even the leopard. Other days and parks were very exciting as well. And we have seen Jackson is really passionate about the animals by himself.
