Our safari in Kenya was the trip of a lifetime! Our guide, Tony, was incredible - he went above and beyond to make sure we saw the Big Five multiple times along with many other animals and birds. He was also an excellent driver and extremely knowledgeable about the parks. We did the 5 day safari with Ol Pejeta, Lake Nakuru, and Masai Mara. We highly recommend staying at The Ark Lodge right next to the watering hole and splurging on the optional hot air balloon safari - those were our two favorite experiences. Africa Safari Classics was very responsive through the planning process too even when we needed to move the trip multiple times for COVID. We also upgraded to the Land Cruiser vehicle which was comfortable on the bumpy roads and easy to see everything from when standing on game drives. Our only thing we would change - we stopped at a lot of tourist trap "gift shops" where there was a lot of pressure to buy crafts at lofty prices. Other stops to use the bathrooms would have been ideal.

We recently completed a 10 day safari adventure with Africa Safari Classics. It was one of the best travel experiences I have ever enjoyed. Maurice was extremely responsive and promptly and thoroughly answered all of my questions and e-mails. He reviewed options with me, and assured he booked us in the accommodations we desired. Maurice coordinated our pick up at the airport, and all of our guides and transfers for the entire trip. Peter and Levi were awesome as our guides, and our tent rooms at Satao Elerai and Mahali Mzuri were incredible. We felt safe and well cared for the entire trip. I would highly recommend Maurice and his staff for your safari planning, he provided the trip of a lifetime.

On the Safari our guides where very experienced and knowledgeable about the animals, landscape, plant life, everything. Our guides were so nice and welcoming. I wouldn't change a thing. An experience of a lifetime. Each portion of our destination safari getaway was better than the next. The food at the hotels and different camps were amazing, Amboseli National Park, Masaai Mara, the Serengeti, Ngorogoro Crater, an appreciation for life. The tour to Stone Island, Spice Island and the Rock restaurant are all beyond words. Each part of our stay was met with exceptional service. I will definitely be back to each of our stops and hoping Maurice Nzwii is there to plan another amazing adventure and once in a lifetime experience. Our group leader gave Maurice all the specifics of our group and Maurice exceeded our expectations and covered all the bases. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Maurice Nzwii and Africa Safari Classics from the bottom of my heart.

February 2021, I submitted a request through Zicasso to plan a group trip to Kenya,Tanzania and Zanzibar for June 2022. I was matched with Maurice Nzwii of Africa Safari Classics. This travel company has surpassed our expectations and provided an amazing experience we will never forget. The camps were top rated, and we had a fantastic time there. In fact, all the accommodations we stayed at were phenomenal. They were beautiful, clean, each room had an amazing view, the staff were very attentive, and the food was top notch. Maurice even planned a few surprises for our group along the way. Maurice booked all of our in-country transfers (both by car and plane). All we had to do was show up at the lobby of each accommodation at the time specified and everything else was taken care of. Our drivers were exceptional as well. We spent time in Amboseli National Park, Masaai Mara, the Serengeti, Ngorogoro Crater and ended on the beach of Zanzibar. Our drivers at Amboseli had many years’ experience, they were very knowledgeable about all of the animals. Within 5 minutes landing at the air strip, they took us straight to see many of the animals, especially a family of cheetahs eating their prey! Our drivers at the Masaai Mara were great as well. We told him we wanted to see a lots of lions and they didn’t disappoint. On our morning game drive, we saw lions feasting on a buffalo, we also saw a leopard with a vulture in a tree. Our drivers in the Serengeti & Ngorongoro were excellent as well, they took us to all the best locations to capture the animals. We were even able to catch a glimpse of a rhino in the distance. They did their best to ensure we were able to see the big 5 and the ugly 5. We then ended the trip visiting Zanzibar’s beaches, a spice tour & Stone Town. I highly recommend using Maurice and Africa Safari Classics for travel tours, safaris and vacations in the future and look forward to working with him again! Asante sana!
