I booked the 4D/3N tour including Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru.

The tour was well organized, smooth, and hassle-free. George, the manager, was supportive and planned a tour that was tailored to our needs.

George made the effort to customize the tour for us - including, 50% advance payment instead of full; half tour in cruiser, other in van; and decreasing our costs as EAC residents.

Our guide, Peter, also made a lot of effort in Mara, driving us from 6 AM to 6 PM one day. He explained the animals well too.

Finally, in Lake Nakuru we were asked to pay the full adult price as they didn't include EAC residents. This was an extra cost over our package and George generously pocketed this for us.

Perfect Wilderness is a small company but they offer affordable, customized, and great experiences. I'd highly recommend them.

We had never been on a safari before, but had always had it on our bucket list. When we booked a 2 week trip to Kenya, the first thing we did was organize a safari. I did a lot of research and decided that Perfect Wilderness Tours and Safaris was what we were looking for. We were trying not to break our budget with luxury accommodations - our goal was to find a company that focused on what we thought was most important - the game drives. The website listed a daily schedule that showed lots of game drives, and that the vehicle and driver, food, bottled water, lodging and park entrance fees were all included. (I would recommend upgrading to a jeep - we saw a number of vans that got stuck in the mud.) Our guide, George, was amazing! He went above and beyond all of our expectations and we saw over 80 different types of animals and birds over our 4 days. George was quite knowledgeable about everything we saw and was as enthusiastic as we were! I would highly recommend this company!!

The 4D/3N Safari was wonderful. We were fortunate and saw the Big 5 and many, many more large animals, birds and wildlife. Our guide, Simba, was very knowledgeable, professional and personable. An expert at finding the wildlife and had good coordination with other guides to provide the best possible viewing experience. The all-inclusive nature of the tour with park fees and most everything else included made sure that there were no logistical issues or cost surprises. The camp tents were great and food services were reasonable. Yes, some of the roads are bad but you are on safari!! The optional Maasai village tour was extremely informative and I highly recommend it to get a better understanding of the tribe that has had such a huge impact on Kenyan culture. Prepare to step a bit out of your comfort zone but it is worth it!

Our safari trip was just wonderful. Our guide Alex did amazing job in finding all the big five, giving us lots of info about the wild animals and keeping up good spirit during the trip. He really took care of everything and we had so much fun during the trip.

My husband and I traveled to Kenya for the first time and arranged our tour through perfect wilderness. The correspondence was smooth and efficient from the start.

The trip was incredible! We saw so many different animals, including the big 5 - within the first day we had already spotted 4/5. Our driver was lovely - as some previous comments note, the driver is not a guide. Our driver Nathan did try and give facts about the animals though and definitely made an effort to point things out.

All the accommodation was lovely and the staff made such an effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay.

Overall, considering the price of other tours available, we felt that this was great value for money. One recommendation regarding the balloon ride (which is handled by a separate company) we would only recommend doing it if you are guaranteed to see the migration. Whilst it was lovely, we saw the least animals and would have preferred to enjoy the place we were staying and more time on the game drive.

We would highly recommend the team at Perfect Wilderness and specifically our driver Nathan

Hello Alika, Thank you for taking time to write us this detailed review and recommending us to the TripAdvisor readers. We are delighted to read that you had an amazing safari with us and Nathan did an excellent job. He is indeed the company's true gem and works hard to ensure our clients get the very best of service. He has vast knowledge about flora and fauna of the country. We are glad that you loved the accommodation and you were well hosted. With your travel dates, you could not witness the migration as by November the migration had already taken place. This is indeed one of the unmissable safaris in Kenya as it affords one the chance to visit Kenya's central wildlife and safari destination and have stay in a luxury lodge. We would like you again for another best of Kenya safaris.

This short Safari was part of our vacation in the Nairobi area. The Safari itself showed us the diversity of wildlife as promised in this incredible part of the world and as Biologists has been on our bucket list for a long time. We were not there during the wildebeest migration but there was still significant resident populations and we were certainly not disappointed. The traffic in Nairobi and the conditions of the roads on the way to and from Maasai Mara were the only negatives. Lake Nakuru is incredible and from the Rhinos to the large bird populations, this national park is a must see. We were treated exceptionally well by Perfect Wildlife Tours and they handled all local transfers, visits to Nairobi attractions (Elephant and Giraffe Conservation Centres) and the Nairobi National Park. The hike up Mount Longonot was strenuous but the view was well worth the hike. The trip to Lake Naivasha for lunch and a boat tour was incredible and together with Lake Nakuru; real birder's paradise. The comprehensive handling of this suite of smaller tours by Perfect Wilderness really made the trip relaxing and removed all concerns about logistics. The office corresponded daily ensuring that we knew when pickups would happen. These folks really know their business and are customer service oriented.

My family of four (2 adults & 2 children) went on the 4 day private Safari offered through Maggie Holidays E. Africa. WOW !!! what an incredible experience. Everything from start to finish was perfect thanks to Maggie & her staff. They provided a mini-van with a pop-up top. Everyone had a window seat for viewing, The trip to Maasi Mara takes about 6 hours. The last 1 1/2 hours is on a dirt road which is not very well maintained - pretty brutal on the back. After lunch and a brief rest, off on our first game drive. With everyone standing up in the mini-van looking out of the pop-up top, we were able to see endless number of animals in very large herds within a few short minutes - all up close and personal; baboons, zebras, giraffes, water buffalos, wildebeest, impala, elephants, giesel, wart hogs. Our driver John was great, very safe driver and excellent guide. The second day was a long game drive. We saw lions, hippos and cheetahs. In the afternoon, we visited a Maasi Village. Mud huts, no electricity or running water and a daily diet of cow blood, lamb meat and goat milk. A real eye opener for our children. The next day off to Lake Nakuru. Another 6 hour drive, with 2 1/2 hours on a dirt road - fairly uncomfortable !! The game drive at Lake Nakuru compared to Maasi Mara was very disappointing. Limited number of animals & very difficult to see due to the thick brush. There were some flamingos, a black & white rhino and lots of monkeys. Highly recommend Maggie Holidays !

Thank you for taking time to write us this amazing review. We are thrilled to read that you had an amazing safari with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed the customized safari vehicle that was selected for you, with a pop up roof and this gave you the chance to view the wildlife. This safari is one of the popular safaris in Kenya and thousands have flock to these prime wildlife and safari destination to create an ultimate African safari experience. Masai Mara Reserve is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas and therefore the most popular tourism destination in Kenya. Masai Mara being a game reserve, is vast and therefore has huge concentration of wild animals and this is not comparable to Lake Nakuru National Park. Nevertheless, we are happy to read that you were able to spot some if not all the wildlife. We are hopeful that the next time you come to Kenya, the government will have improved the state of our roads and you will have a smooth ride. We would like to have you travel with us again in future!
