          Great Experience
          We had the best experience with this tour. Marge was fantastic in answering my every question about the tour and guiding me through the booking process. John, our guide was an absolute professional and very knowledgable. He shared Kenya’s history, recommended food, great conversations and spent a lot of time to make sure we had the best experience. I highly recommend this tour.

          Fantastic Safari!
          I can summarise the Safari experience in a word: FANTASTIC!!! The itinerary proposed (the four-day package) was been absolutely the perfect combination, giving us the opportunity to exhaustively enjoy the Masai Mara and the lakes, thus discovering very diverse as much as breathtaking landscapes and Safari settings, going back home with a global picture of Kenya territory. The itinerary has been absolutely great not only for the activities offered, but also for the accommodations selected for us: they were all extremely comfortable and cured in the details, making our staying a real luxury, thanks to designed, spacious and luminous, and rich in accessories and comforts rooms, caring and always available personnel, sophisticated meals. Another positive aspect that actually had a huge impact on our trip was the driver, Joseph, for his excellent preparation and skills as a guide as well as a driver and for his kindness and willingness to try his best in order to not let us miss any detail and experience during the trip. And, last but not least, my partner and I decide to autonomously compared several Safari proposed by both Italian and Kenian travel agencies and finding you and your Safari proposal has been the proof that it is actually feasible to enjoy a perfect experience with an adequate balance in between cost and service offered.

          Fantastic Trip to Masai Mara!
          What an incredible trip to Masai Mara! We had a large group - 17 of us and all of the details from our 3 drivers (I was with Peter who is amazing) to the Mara Serena Lodge were perfect. One of our team left his phone at the lodge and Peter arranged to get it back to Nairobi before our flight out that night! His knowledge of the animals, birds, and plants is extensive and he is so personable! Highly recommend Shoor Safaris!

          Good Company
          Great experience with Shoor Safaris. We did a two-day private tour of Nairobi. The office staff was great from the first point of contact. We already knew what we wanted to see so we just needed Shoor Safaris to drive us there. We had a car and driver (unfortunately I cannot remember his name) for the two days. He was very professional, prompt, and very polite. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and then some extra places which we requested as we had additional time. No complaints.

          First time experience and can’t wait to go back!
          The trip was amazing. Shoor safaris were very professional and the guide assigned to us was very knowledgeable and provided a pleasant experience. I’d recommend visiting Kenya and booking the services of Shoor Safaris.

          Second "holiday of a lifetime" with Shoor Safaris
          We had an excellent 3-week safari 12 years ago with Shoor Safaris. Peter was our guide and driver on that occasion and magically (12years later) he was our driver and guide yet again. We were delighted. It felt like meeting up with an old friend. His knowledge of the reserves and where to find the animals and information about them was first rate. The safari jeep was always spotlessly clean and Peter looked after us very well always on time, kind and helpful. This time, Jane organised a lovely 2-week safari covering some of our favourite game reserves from last time with some new ones that we had not visited before. We stayed at different lodges and camps, ALL with excellent facilities and amenities. We also took a balloon flight over the Masai Mara - a most magical event we would thoroughly recommend. If we come back to Kenya, we will certainly use Shoor again.

          everything perfect - best guide ever!
          Everything was perfect. They were very supportive during the organisation of my trip. Good advice and quick answers. Our guide Peter was the best i have ever had in a trip in Africa. He was precise, always on time... very skilled driver and always the first to be in the right point to spot animals during game drives! Really the best ever!! Thankyou. Wonderful experience.

          Shoor Safaris organised a fabulous and memorable holiday in Kenya!
          I was born in Nairobi, Kenya, and wanted to celebrate my 55th birthday in Kenya. Shoor Safaris organised a fabulous holiday for my family and friends, a group of 7 adults, in December 2023. Shoor's attention to detail and efforts to accommodate all our requests paid off tremendously. All seven of us enjoyed every moment of the holiday - Nairobi (Giraffe Centre, Karen Blixen Museum, the National Museum), Abadare National Park and staying at The Ark, Lake Naivasha, Hells Gate National Park, Mount Longonot, and Masai Mara. Shoor's staff were very courteous, and our safari guide, Peter, did a phenomenal job ensuring we got the most out of the safaris - the Big Five and many more mammals, reptiles, and birds. I am looking forward to another holiday with Shoor Safaris! Maybe for my next birthday!

          The best experience!
          Shoor Safari tailor made a five day safari for us 4 adults and 4 children to Samburu. We had the best experience and Peter is the best safari guide and driver imaginable. Full blown professional and really cares about you being granted the best experiences. Active on the radio trying to locate the best spots seeing animals and really sharp on driving. We had the best experience and would recommend Shoor Safari to anyone!

          Excellent planning and service. A wonderful unforgettable experience!
          Shoor developed a customized itinerary for our group of seven family and friends. They carefully worked with our preferences and interests to develop the 8-day itinerary, which included Nairobi, Aberdare, Naivasha and Masai Mara. They were very responsive and easy to work with. The hotels were great, and our Safari guide Peter was phenomenal. During the masai mara game drive he was relentless in finding harder-to-see animals like leopards, cheetahs and black rhinos. He was also very well-informed about conservation efforts and the natural habitat overall. Shoor was also very accommodating and flexible when we needed to make unanticipated adjustments to our itinerary. I would also note that their tours are reasonably priced. Traveling with a group in a developing country can often be challenging, so I really appreciate that things went smoothly, we had no logistical hiccups, and we really enjoyed the sights, people and culture.

          Best few Days of my Life!!
          These 3 days were some of the best of my life! My mom, who is 80 years old, loved it as well. She was treated so well and patiently by everyone. The scenery, the animals, the swimming pool, the hippo pool breakfast - it would be hard to pick a favourite thing! We had such good luck and saw over 30 species of animals and birds!! Some people we really appreciated: Vivian - our guide and driver on safari was just amazing. I would easily spend a month with her! It was a truly wonderful experience in the field and we learned so much. Simon - Driver to the airport and back was very helpful and kind. Have us some good suggestions for things to do in the Nairobi area Moses and Patricia - two of the servers at the hotel who were wonderful And Mike, the manager The hotel itself was beautiful and the food was really good. I did not want to leave

          Safe, smooth, and superb
          The arrangements were safe, smooth, and pleasant. I loved the city tour in Nairobi, and the stay and game drives in Masai Mara. Everything was spot on. A huge shout out to Simon for showing me around Nairobi and tailoring it to accommodate my interests. I will recommend Shoor to my friends and relatives if they travel to Kenya.

          AMAZING EXPERIENCE
          We did the 3 day Masai Mara and 3 day Serengeti tour in mid September with my husband and best friend. The company picks you up early from where you are staying to avoid traffic - it's private so the 3 of us were the only people in the covere vehicle. Our first tour guide, Jack, was AMAZING. When we stopped by a tourist stop to see a view of the Rift Valley, he gave us advice to haggle (many may not know that). He was conscientious about bathroom and food breaks. There is water provided during the entire safari but both lodges included no water (something to keep in mind). The lodges in both Serengeti and Masai Mara were phenomenal - we had 3 people in our group so we shared a room with 3 beds which were comfortable. The beds are separated which seems commonplace in many countries (not so common in the US where we are from). The staff at both lodges went above and beyond to keep us comfortable, I would certainly return to both. Regarding the actual safaris - we started early, around 7-8am for Masai Mara, returning for hot lunch at the lodge and going for evening safari from 4-6pm when many animals are more active, especially during the rain. Jack is very experienced, he has been a tour guide for nearly 20 years and his eyes are so trained to see things most of us could not - a leopard a kilometer away sleeping in a tree, for example! He was able to get us so close to animals that I never dreamed of seeing in such detail. If we were enjoying a certain group of animal, he would stay there for however long we wanted. We were able to see almost every single animal because of his commitment to giving us a thorough experience. Jack also taught us a lot of Swahili, common phrases to talk to locals which we enjoyed a lot. We will definitely come back with other family for safari and would only come when Jack is available - he was incredible! Would recommend 10/10!

          An Excellent Adventure
          We spent over a week and a half with Shoor and their driver/guide, Peter. Our experience clearly exceeded our expectations. Shoor had made all our arrangements in advance, and the safari went like clockwork. Peter was truly the element that made the adventure a total success. He is knowledgeable about flora, fauna, the local economy, and anything else we could think to inquire about. We would use Shoor again in a heartbeat.

        This trip was absolutely amazing. The basecamp was the exact experience I wanted. The staff were great, the food was delicious, and our safari guide went extra lengths to ensure we saw as much as possible. Would 100% recommend.

        This company is amazing! Responsive, polite, caring, top-notch service. We booked our safari with them and would do it again. One of our family members got sick during our stay and our agents, Jane and Sanjay, bent over backwards to help us make additional travel arrangements. They were so personable and kind, checking in with us to see how things were going and providing service that went above and beyond. We’re so grateful and highly recommend them! Additionally, our guide and safari were absolutely amazing!!

        We enjoyed this tour very much. Shoor Safaris was responsive and reliable and all went as described. The flight was on time and easy, and all the transfers were quick and accurate. Four days was just the right amazing of time in the park, as it gave us 6 game drives total. The only snag we experienced was that our guide was not at the Keekorok airstrip when we landed. Apparently they thought we were arriving later, so we had to wait about 30 minutes for pick up. Otherwise all enjoyable and smooth!

        We loved our Masai Mara safari - our guide Jonny was incredible and very knowledgable and we saw a wonderful array of animals - much more than we were expecting, as a result of his skills. The accommodation was beautiful and we would describe it as more luxurious than mid-range! The food was excellent and the service as well. The drinks were very well-priced and the area of the accommodation where you could watch the sunset and the animals walk past was our favourite. Everything was very well organised by the company and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this experience.

        Everything was seamless for our trip and we had the experience of a lifetime, even watching lions and hyenas eat a hippo. Our guide, Peter, was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating and an excellent driver. Because this was not our first time in Africa, he made sure to make the experience unique and special. Highly recommended.

        Everything went so smoothly! Great customer service and an amazing experience!! We were picked up in Nairobi by our guide, David. He drove us around for those four days showing us all the exciting and wonderful things that Masai Mara has to offer. My husband had some special requests, seeing the migration and cheetahs, David came through. We picked our accommodations through Shoor and everything was taken care of by them. We took 100s of pictures. You get so much for the cost of a package. David took us back to Nairobi for our flight, always made sure we were safe and enjoyed ourselves. We will never forget this once-in-a-lifetime trip! Thank you Shoor Safaris!!

        This safari was amazing! Our driver John was fantastic- he was super knowledgeable, professional, and just great to work with. We saw just about every animal living in Masai Mara up close thanks to his expertise.

        We flew into Nairobi and stayed at the Crowne Plaza near the airport (no complaints at all about the hotel). Early the next morning we were picked up to drive to the park. It took us ~7 hours including stops for breakfast, lunch, and a stop at a scenic overlook of the Great Rift Valley.

        We stayed at the Mara Crossings Camp and were also blown away by how many amenities they provide way out in the wilderness. Our tent was huge and had its own shower, double sinks, and a flushing western toilet. The food was excellent, they have a well-stocked bar with very reasonable prices, and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. They also provide free laundry service which was much needed since we were coming off of a 6-day Kilimanjaro trek.

        TL;DR: I highly recommend this safari- we couldn't have asked for a better experience!
