    Trip of a lifetime
    Shoor safaris were amazing from enquiry through to the actual trip. Jane in bookings was great with prompt replies and quotations. There were two families in our group and we went for two 4x4 jeeps rather than the Toyota vans and were not disappointed as these were more spacious and able to trek through water and mud. Peter and James were our drivers and picked us up promptly from our hotel in Nairobi. Both were friendly and knew exactly where to find the animals once our safari started. We managed to see the big 5 plus alot of the other animals. We stayed at the Mara Simba lodge, booked by Shoor. This has great rooms and food choice. Breakfast, afternoon tea and evening dinners were available. This will be a trip to remember for a lifetime !

    Experience of a lifetime
    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.

    Wonderful experience
    We hired a van/driver for 12 days to tour Kenya (with our 4 children, Maasai Mara, Naivasha, Amboseli and Diani). Everything went very well and our driver Jackson was very professional and fun, driving safely and giving us lots of explanations. We really felt in good hands. We highly recommend it.

    Thrilling safari 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.

    What an AMAZING Experience!!
    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!!

    Amazing Experience- Highly Recommend
    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!

    Absolute fantastic time in Masai Mara
    Going with Shoor / Masai Mara Travel was by far the best safari (out of 3 safari's so far) we had in Kenya. Jane was always helpful and responsive, and our driver/guide Joseph was really great: excellent driver, very knowledgeable game guide, and always kind and flexible, One could have a better guide. We would absolutely recommend this agency, and will most certainly book with them again for a next safari in Kenia.

    Unbelievably excellent safari with Carlos
    We had the best safari ever with Carlos. He was absolutely brilliant... Kind, funny, informative, tolerant and he absolutely went out of his way to make our safari very special and memorable. He was brilliant at steering the vehicle exactly to the right spot so the animals walked right by the car! We saw everything, including 2 cheetahs, one with a kill, a leopard up a tree, lots of lions, including 5 cubs which morphed out of the savannah as if by magic, hundreds of elephant and even a tortoise. We thoroughly enjoyed Carlos' company and good humour. He is a excellent guide. You should be proud of him. Many thanks for everything. Keekorok Lodge was very comfortable and their staff excellent. All in all a wonderful 3 days.

    Working with Masai Mara Travel/Shoor Africa was a breeze. Jane was always very helpful and responsive and if she was out of the office, one of her colleagues would respond for her. Communication was wonderful

    An experience of a lifetime!
    There are no words to articulate this trip. Joseph was our guide and we will treasure him forever. 10/10 experience that filled us with so much awe. Joseph took such good care of us, explained the history and details of Masai Mara. We left overflowing with joy, truly. I came with my husband for my 30th birthday and every moment in Masai Mara left us speechless. It’s a wonder being there - truly no words. Thank you Joseph!

    Excellent few days in Nairobi
    Shoor Safaris provided excellent service from Jane and team planning with me leading up to my trip, to the efficiency and reliability of having one of their drivers take me to all the different spots I wanted to see: Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Maasai market, Kazuri beads, Utamaduni craft market etc. I only had a few days in Nairobi but they were good days. Peter was my driver and he was punctual, professional and very welcoming and friendly. This is the second time I have used Shoor Safaris and I would definitely recommend them to anyone and use them again in the future.

    Incredible
    My 3 day two nights fly-in Safari in Masai Mara organized by Shoor Africa was in the top three best trips of my lifetime. My driver Simon was always there waiting for me and was professional and welcoming. My flights to the Mara were positively uneventful and provided great views of the landscape. I stayed at the Serena Lodge in a comfortable room with bug nets. The staff was incredibly welcoming. Trainee Naomi was a delight, and I hope to see her again when fully trained. My game drive guides did their best, I saw more fauna than I could have imagined. They let me use their binoculars which was generous and made the game drives even better. The food was amazing, and chef Kennedy was incredibly accommodating of my food allergies to gluten and shrimp, checking every day if I was satisfied. The lodge staff made my stay at the lodge a wonderful time. I enjoyed learning about the Masai culture during the Masai village tour, the highlight of my stay. The only downside to the entire trip was that I did not stay long enough.

We had an absolutely amazing time and it was a breathtaking and wonderful experience.
To be honest I think everybody should do a safari once in their lifetime! And if you can, you should definitely do that with Shoor Travel!

Right from the start we have been in contact with Jane, who assisted us in organizing everything.
As you can imagine we had a ton of questions, especially as my partner and I (36&32) were travelling with my parents (61&77) and wanted to ensure we have a very smooth trip.
Jane was super patient, always very professionell and helpful and really a true angel.
We cannot thank her enough. Jane is amazing!

We were 6 days on the road with our driver guide John. He was an incredibly awesome, kind and knowledgeable guide, we had so much fun with him and the whole family enjoyed every minute of the tour. He is a really great guy and we appreciate him so very much!

Furthermore we were soooo happy about the cozy bus with comfortable seats and pop up roof. We got into one of the Jeeps for the Balloon Safari and... Yes they do look nice and kind of super safari fancy but they are incredibly uncomfortable and everybody was happy to get into "our bus" afterwards. So please please keep those busses.

We also added a few extra activities like the mentioned Baloon safari in Masai mara, a boat safari at lake Naivasha, a Massai village Visit and everything was perfectly organized.

Furthermore the recommended hotels were simply amazing. We absolutely loved Serena Amboseli lodge and also liked the Lake Naivasha Country Club very much. The booked Kekooro Lodge in Masai Mara was not our favorite, but this has to do with the hotels very poor management and policy regarding drivers and guides, but this is a complete other story and has nothing to do with Shoor travel.

To keep a long story short and wrap this up.
We can only say THANK YOU Jane, THANK YOU John and thank you shoor travel for a once in a lifetime experience.

If we ever have the chance to come to do a Safari again we will definitely book with you!

I want to thank this team and recommend it's services. Safaris and service were great and they also helped my clients to recover lost valuables at the hotel. Make sure you book with them on your trip in Kenya.

We were a group of friends and one of us was in charge of handling the booking for our tour to Kenya. Having compared several quotes from (good quality) companies we settled in Shoor Safaris based in Nairobi.
This was a good decision. This agent took good care of us and all services were provided as promised including a private safari vehicle. Only thing is they insisted we bring our own water bottles (reusable) to reduce plastic waste but guess we should support this effort. Overall a Good safari experience.

We had an amazing time on our Safari with Shoor Safari's. We did a 6 day tour that started on Monday in Nairobi. We went to Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, Aberdare National Park, and finally 2 nights in Massai Mara.

Our driver, Martin, was excellent. We had a Toyota van for the duration of our trip. He was informative and always punctual. He was also great at sighting and communicating with other drivers. We were able to see ALL 5 of the BIG 5: Elephants, Lions, Leopards, Buffalo, and the Rhino. And many other animals too!

This is a truly wonderful trip that you will never forget. You will see animals in their natural habitat.

Only negative is the road conditions, which is not in the control of the Shoor. Be prepared for some very bumpy roads.

I would do this vacation again. It is truly an unforgettable adventure.

It was the smoothest trip I have ever been on. We were a 5-person party and we have made a million different requests (some of them on the last minute) to Jane from Reservations prior to and during the trip and she accommodated ALL of them. Our reservations (hotel, flight, car, etc.) were in order and already taken care of before we got there.

Our driver guide Peter was literally THE best driver. The driving in Masai Mara is extremely tough. All the other drivers got stuck and needed help to be pulled out of the mud so their clients ended up spending couple hours stuck. Peter not once got stuck and was the excellent driver. Most importantly, among all the other cars, we somehow always ended up in the best spots to view the animals. He was friends with everyone so we also ended up getting some VERY exclusive spots. He was extremely helpful and has a vast knowledge about the area, nature, wild life, and animals. He was always energetic and had a smile on which was amazing to see.

As for the trip itself, Kenya has the most hospitable and polite people we have ever seen. I am from Turkey and usually Turkish people are known for their hospitality but Kenya was on a different level. Everybody's extremely friendly and helpful. Before the trip, we were a bit concerned about the hotels but they were all amazing and exceeded our expectations. We stayed in Ol Pejeta, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and Masai Mara. Our hotel in Ol Pejeta was like a dream. My wife and I refused to go to sleep because we didn't want to miss the beauty of the nature. All the hotels had animals co-existing with people so you can end up eating your lunch with a couple unexpected friends near you. Don't worry, they were extremely safe. We stayed at Sarova Camps at Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara and they were extremely luxurious and had great rooms and food. Our hotel at Lake Naivasha was something else because we literally ate our dinner, a couple meters away from hippos, which were unreal to be that close to. You can interact with monkeys in the hotel and the grounds of the hotel were like out of a movie. Also, be sure to book a massage at the hotels because they are extremely talented and budget friendly.

We have all watched the wild life on TV in documentaries before but to see and experience the animals in their natural habitat was extremely special. Peter made sure that we saw the BIG FIVE (lion, leopard, black rhino, elephant, and buffalo) in addition to many other animals like the cheetah, hyena etc. Rhinos especially were magical animals. We were a bit concerned that we weren't going to be able to see the leopard but Peter made sure and tracked one for us. We even got to see a pride of lions bringing down a buffalo and it all happened a couple meters away from us.

All in all, it was once in a lifetime experience. My wife and I are already planning to go back during the great migration and my father wants to visit Mount Kilimanjaro. If you have any doubts/questions whether to go on a safari or select which safari provider to go with, DON'T. Go with Shoor Africa and you won't be dissappointed.

Shoor were extremely helpful all the way through, patiently guiding us through the planning of the trip! 4 of us had an exclusive trip in one of Shoor's very comfortable safari mini vans. It was a long trip but we saw loads and each park was very different, which was interesting. We were able to slightly modify the trip to suit our interests, and that posed no problem at all. All the places we stayed we excellent. One that we chose ourselves was off their usual list, but turned out to be excellent as well. It was a small one run by an NGO that we wanted to support. No problem.
Our driver John was an excellent guide, full of information and very easy to get on with. He was always on the ball, ready to discuss our plans and make helpful suggestions. We travelled a long way and saw a lot, and always felt safe with John's driving. Every park was worth visiting, for different reasons. Each one had a unique experience. The company was recommended to us by friends and I would totally recommend them to others. Not the most expensive but every bit as good, they negotiated good prices for us at the hotels, too.

Very good tour which was customised for us in terms of choice of our camp in Masai Mara. We were also the only ones in the safari vehicle as this was a private tour.
Price was reasonable too.
