      EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME!!
      EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME!!! I waited so long to do a safari in Kenya and I definitely chose the right company! The coordination by Stacey and Kimani was perfect DVD the guides Stanley and Gilbert were absolutely outstanding! I felt safe as a solo woman traveler and was treated like a VIP. The guides were extremely knowledgeable, respectful and accommodating. I saw so many animals and breathtaking scenery. I am already planning to come back with family members. Again, Samson’s safari is top notch on all fronts!

      THE MARA EXPERIENCE
      Wow, what an adventure! My friends and I had the time of our lives exploring Maasai Mara with Samson's Safaris. From the get-go, the guides were awesome – super knowledgeable and friendly. They showed us all the cool spots and made sure we didn't miss a thing. And let me tell you, the wildlife sightings were insane! Lions, elephants, giraffes – you name it, we saw it. Plus, the landscapes were straight out of a postcard. We even got to hang out with the Maasai people and learn about their way of life, which was really special. But what really blew us away was the attention to detail from Samson's Safaris. From sunrise breakfasts to sunset drinks, every moment felt magical. And the best part? Knowing that we were supporting conservation efforts while having the time of our lives. If you're thinking of going on safari, do yourself a favor and go with Samson's Safaris. Trust me, you won't regret it!

      Wonderful and interesting travel experience
      The travel is very nice. I saw a lot of animals such as lion, elephant and gazelle and have understood how they live in the famous national park. The park is their paradise. Thank you for your good services and arrangements. I appreciate. Wish the animals and your company be blessed.

      Amazing day at Tsavo East Park
      Our tour began in Mombasa port where the guides found us, the distance to the Park is approximately 3 hours. We did not have more time because we were traveling on a Cruise, but starting early in the morning you can be at 6 or 7 pm back in Mombasa. The guides (Ali and Kely) did everything to find the animals and be on Port at time. We could see lions, elephants, zebras, giraffes, ostrichs, buffaloes and deers. The lunch time was perfect too, the Buffet had a variety of food, and also is inculded a beverage without alcohol.

      Samson’s Safaris’ Irene rockstar guide to exploring Nairobi
      Highly, highly recommend Irene from Samson's Safaris. We couldn't have asked for a better guide to show us the ins and outs of Nairobi's markets. Irene was an absolute delight with extremely valuable insight into the best shops to visit as well as other amazing experiences to tie into the day within the area (feeding giraffes!) She was knowledgeable, helpful, flexible, and a complete joy to spend the day with getting to explore Nairobi.

      Epic Shopping Day
      The tour exceeded my expectations - Irene was an amazing guide and completely customized the tour based on our needs and asks. We went to a women's co-op which was a highlight for me as I enjoy supporting those types of businesses. She took us to feed giraffes and shepherded us through a hectic downtown environment flawlessly and we did everything we wanted to do and more. Cannot stress enough how awesome she was and how much we enjoyed the day! We plan to book her again for next January!

      I have been in a nature program about wild animals in Africa
      The driver Joseph was a very skilled driver and trust me that is very important in Nairobi in our way to Masai Mara Park and inside the Masai Mara. We were lucky because we spot a lot of animals bur the program was changed from the original due to Nakuru government although once arrived to Jambo Safari Lodge we met other costumers to who did not affect those goverment changed. The Masai Village not only with the Boss but aso With the tribe warrior was amazing. And do not be wrong they can speak a very good English, although the park seems to be so remote from anywhere, Spanish, and some French and swahilI of course Burocracy were “meh” but the experience great. Jospeh, thank you for being such a skilled driver! Although things changed, Samson’s were in touch with me sll the time due to , let’s not an standard trip

      Amazing Experience!
      Our group of five (4 from tbe US and 1 from Spain) went on the 2-day safari as well as the Amboseli 1-day tour. Where do we begin?! This was the best tour we could've possibly asked for. Kimani was our guide and he took excellent care of us the entire time. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our (probably thousands of) questions, knew every animal and all kinds of facts about each, and knew the best places to find them. We even saw a rhino! There was water in the car which was always nice, and all of our accommodations were top-notch. We stayed just outside of Masai Mara in a nice resort where the food was excellent. For the entirety of the trip, everyone felt safe whether it was in the vehicle, at our accommodations, or any place we stopped along the way. We also used Wildngo.com to book the trip and they made it very smooth for us. We really cannot recommend Kimani and Samson's Safaris enough! We all want to come back and bring our own families and replicate the exact same trip. :) HUGE thanks again to this amazing company!

      Big 4 of 5 in 5 hours
      Amazing trip with an insanely credible and experienced guide who knew exactly where to find all of the animals of interest. We were lucky to see the big four of five and so many more in less than one day. Our guide went above and beyond to make this trip was memorable yet efficient. Unforgettable!

    Our guide Lewis was excellent, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and energetic! We were able to have a relaxing yet invigorating hike through different parts of the park including different forested areas, the caves and falls, and the lilly pond area. We were able to see many of the animals the preserve is known for, some of them up close. We learned a lot about the flora and fauna of the area. The guide was helpful, pleasant and engaging. A very enjoyable experience; we were glad we had taken it!

    One note: for some reason our ticket had a meet-up/pickup place on it that was incorrect (Kimathi St/Hilton); the correct location was Gate C of the park.
