    A great guide for an unforgettable experience!
    Me and my fiancée have been on a 7 days safari with Benson during the first week of December, covering Samburu, Aberdare, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara Parks and sleeping in 4 different facilities. Benson picked us up at Nairobi airport sharp on time, on the first day of our tour and he immediately welcomed us with a kind and professional approach, making us feel totally comfortable from minute one! Being our first safari, it is very hard to sum up such an incredible experience, but I would like to stress the fact that Benson has been an amazing tour guide the whole time: a tireless, safe, wise driver capable to face heavy traffic situations, city caos as well as muddy or floaded roads in the parks with the expertise and promptness of a true pilot (which is not granted as we saw other cars getting stuck!). Smart washroom stops throughout the trip were also scheduled to allow the most comfortable experience. Benson is also very well prepared on hundreds of animals spieces (and birds!), recognizing them at first sight and providing us with curiosities and information all the way through our journey. Also, he has been sharing with us habits, curiosities and tradition of the Kenyan culture by making every single day an interesting occasion for learning more about the country we have been visiting. I can finally say Benson has been kind, open, professional with us all the time making us feel safe and welcome in every occasion and meeting any of our needs. At the end of the tour he drove us to our next accommodation in Nairobi perfectly on time. The mean of transport was a Toyota van with 6 comfortable seats, all for the two of us. The roof can be uplifted during game drives to have a better view of the surroundings. A great solution for the best experience!

    Excelent guide for memorable holiday
    We spent 6 days guided by Benson in Amboseli, Nakuru, Naivasha and Masai Mara. We were more than happy to have him as a driver and guide and we consider ourselves lucky. We have the feeling that due to his skills and determination we were there right on time to spot some amazing realife moments of the African savana. He is calm, friendly, respectfull. He is still passionate about wildlife and has the patience to show you every animal that comes along the way and wait for the perfect picture. He is a very responsible and skilled driver, both on the tricky offroads of the safari and the buzy crazy road of Kenya. He is a totaly reliable and responsible person who offered us a safe memorable holiday. Spotless! Thank you, Benson!

    Ben is a wonderful guide and a trustworthy driver! Highly recommended!
    We spent 11 days in Kenya with Ben. He is a wonderful guide with a great animal and ornithological knowledge. He is a wonderful guide with a great animal and ornithological knowledge. He knows how to observe the animals and anticipate their movements in order to be able to see them as closely as possible. For instance we were able to observe a pair of lions spotting their prey, and see them a few hours later devour their feast! Ben drove us from Nairobi to the Samburu game reserve, then the Nakuru, Masai Mara, Naivasha and Amboseli game reserves. It allowed us to see the Big Five and a multitude of different animals, as well as dozens of species of birds. In addition to being a very good guide attentive to the smallest detail, Ben is an excellent driver. His van is comfortable and we always felt safe. I highly recommend his services and will not hesitate to call on him for a future stay in Kenya!

    Kenya Mission Trip
    I was in Kenya for 10 days with our school PAA. We stopped at a bunch of schools and got to teach some of the students there. We also went on a bunch of safaris and got to see so many cool animals. If you want to see the most birds and get to know what they are called Benson is the driver he would always stop for every bird he saw. 100% recommend this experience is was incredible.

    Wonderful stay at Masai Mara
    This was the second time I had a tour with Benson. We did a 2 1/2 daytrip to Masai Mara. We enjoyed a lot, saw a lot of animals on our 1 day game drive, visitied Masai village and had a wonderful stay in Oldarpoi camp. Benson knows a lot about the animals, environment and the people. He is very friendly. Making a custom plan for our group was no problem. He took very good care of us on this unforgettable trip

    Traveling through Mara and Bomet
    Benson has been used by our group in the past, and I can see the reasons why. He is always punctual, kind, courteous and very knowledgeable with the terrain that he drove us through and if unsure asked the local people in a very courteous manner. We were 3 women traveling through the Mara region and Western Kenya to review some of the projects that have been supported by the organization and at no time did we ever feel unsafe because of Benson who is totally reliable and honest. Benson can identify his birds, as well as the animals and he loves gardens. Benson knows and understands his country and is a great ambassador for all the wonderful people who call Kenya home. Thanks Benson

    The tour guide was extremely personable and friendly. We enjoyed the history he shared on various items in the museum as well as driving us around to see various parts of Nairobi. The cultural dances at Bomas was the highlight for us. I will definitely strongly recommend this experience for anyone visiting Nairobi.

    A master tour guide!
    We made 4 days Safari Trip (Amboseli, Tsavo West & Tsavo East) with Ben. It was a fantastic safari, Ben is a master tour guide. He knows all the animals and all the birds only by seeing them from afar. He provided a lot of stunning information about them, he always shared with us great knowledge about animals, locations, trees, birds, and many other things. He was always on the lookout for the animal to show us and drove us to the best locations. Between the national parks he provided cultural information, details about the country, and insight of the lives of people in the villages. He also gave many tips about how to deal with local merchants. He is a great driver and a helpful tour guide, he is not only driving you around, but you can also see his passion for everything and you can feel his enthusiasm when he points out things even the smallest common animals. If we are coming to Kenya again, we definitely going to contact him. We also highly recommend that you go with Ben for the Safaris, he would give you an experience of a lifetime! Thank you Ben for the unforgettable experience.

    Superb!
    Benson was our driver, safari guide and all around advisor for our travels in Kenya. He is very knowledgeable and skilled at his job. Benson displays a real passion for wildlife and the conservation of our natural world, and is happy to share all he knows. Driving in Kenya can sometimes feel risky, but Benson is steadfast, secure and comfortable on the road. Next time I’m in Kenya, Benson will be my first choice! Asante Sana Benson, and qua heri.

    Friendly guide and reliable
    We took Benson on a three day trip to the Mount Kenya area and enjoyed every aspect of it. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and drives very well. His safari car is large and comfortable. Once at Mount Kenya he was able to organize a hiking guide for us, which we appreciated. Highly recommend!

    Fantastic Family Holiday!
    Our family took a three-day trip to Amboselli National Park with Benson. We had a fantastic time! Benson worked hard to show us a great time, and happily accommodated our every request. He was friendly and professional, didn't talk on his phone while driving, and cleaned the vehicle every night. He went out of his way to make sure we were happy. We'd recommend him without hesitation!

Benson is so knowledgeable about the animals, and very attentive to needs and interests. Benson always seemed to know where the animals would be and was able to predict their activities, allowing plenty of time for taking pictures. He picked me up at my Nairobi hotel and dropped me off at the elephant orphanage, which was very helpful. I had an amazing tour!

Benson arrived promptly at my hotel by 5:45am to pick me up for a half-day tour of Nairobi National Park while I was briefly in town. Benson has been guiding for 18 years, and so has accrued a lot of useful knowledge not only about the various animals/species/behaviors as you would expect, but also where the specific animals can be found within the park. This includes knowing the different prides and their territories within the park, where the hippos hangout, etc.. Knowing that I was very keen on taking some great photos, Benson always tried to position the vehicle as best he could, keeping in mind where the sun was so that I could photograph the animals.

Luck seemed to be in my favor for the game drive - we started the morning off sighting a cheetah that seemed like he was ready to hunt some nearby prey, but wasn’t going in for the kill. We eventually moved on and discovered a pride of 4 lions (male, lioness and two cubs) with a fresh kill of a big buffalo about as close to the roadside as could be possible. By the end of the game drive, we had seen white rhinos, buffalo, giraffes, hippos, zebra, jackals, wildebeests and many other species of wildlife and various birds.

Overall I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better game drive and would recommend Benson when in Kenya.

Benson did a great job showing us around Nairobi game park. He knew just where to take us to see different animals and birds. Among many others, we saw giraffes, zebras, rhinos and lions. The highlight was seeing several male lions up close as well as some female lions with their cubs. Benson was knowledgeable about the habits and character of each of the many animals and birds he showed us. He made us feel comfortable and safe. We would highly recommend him and will be recommending him to any friends that might be traveling to Kenya.

Benson is an extremely knowledgeable and very personable guide. His expertise ensured our trip to the Nairobi National Park was a marvelous experience. We were thrilled to see so many different animals, many which we had not seen in Amboseli National Park. Benson was extremely generous with his time (exceeding the original half day tour) and our tour was a real highlight. Thanks Benson. Sharon, Anna & Geoff

Our recent trip to Nairobi National Park was a great family experience. We've used Benson in the past for other trips and have always found him to be professional, prompt, courteous and reasonably priced. On this trip we had an enjoyable day out and had the opportunity to see many great animals at the park. Benson was very knowledgable about the various wildlife and stopped as often as we asked to look and take pictures. We are very pleased with his services and will be using him in the future. We highly recommend him for trips like this and for any other need while in Nairobi.
