We were living on the edge and booked this safari a few weeks before our trip to Kenya. Probably not the best way to do it, but we were able to get absolutely terrific accommodations. We booked a 4 night/5 day itinerary. Anne was so helpful with the millions of questions I bombarded her with. She was always a text away on Whatsapp and tailored the trip to our needs. We decided we only wanted to stay at two lodges, and picked the parks we wanted to see. We ended up staying at Lake Naivasha Sopa (had the most beautiful pool area and manicured gardens, the architecture was beautiful, and our cottages were spacious) for two nights, and Sarova Mara Game Camp for the other two nights (luxury tents). Our game drives were in Lake Naivasha, Lake Nukuru, and the Mara. Peter was our everything—driver, guide, and FRIEND. He went out of his way to find "nice" restrooms for us on the way to all our destinations, and he was just the sweetest person.

Absolutely Brilliant. We cannot thank Anne and her team enough for putting together such a wonderful itinerary for our family. From the start the communication from amazing memories Safari was outstanding and Anne worked with me changing accommodation etc to suit my families needs. It was the most incredible time of our lives from start to finish. Just perfect. Our Guide in Kenya, Francis is probably what made it so enjoyable. He was fantastic. Our kids called him the GOAT (Greatest of all time). He was an incredible guide. He knew all the best places to take us to see the animals, knew the park so incredibly well, gave us so much information about the animals, was great with our kids and always made sure to arrange full days with bathroom breaks which was greatly appreciated. We literally could not have asked for a nicer guide. It was the holiday of a lifetime. We have traveled a lot throughout the world now and I would not hesitate at all to recommend amazing memories Safari to everyone. Friends back home are already asking about our trip and How we booked it and I would not hesitate to recommend this trip… and also for friends to ask for Francis as their Guide (our GOAT)!! Thank you so so much for so many incredible memories.

I have no words to express how incredible our experience was with Amazing Memories. Everything, from the planning which we did months ahead with the help of Anne, to the game drives with Peter and James, was superb. Anne was helpful and always available, despite the time difference with the US. We communicated with her via what’s app and always got an answer from her within minutes, even after hours. She helped us plan our itinerary from Lake Nakuru, to Lake Naivasha and finally to Masai Mara. All the transfers were well organized and the accommodations recommended were superb. We were especially pleased with the Ashnil camp in Masai Mara. It was so beautiful and the tents were very luxurious and comfortable, we did not expect that in the middle of the jungle! Peter and James, our guides, were knowledgeable, friendly and so accommodating of our every need. We asked to stop and take pictures often and they patiently waited while we took the perfect shot. We had great conversations with them about the animals, the Kenyan culture, our culture and many other topics. We had 4 teenagers with us and they loved Peter and James, too! The cars that we rode in, the 4x4s, were comfortable, perfect for the road conditions and ideal for taking pictures. Definitely worth the extra money! The folks we saw inside the vans seemed so uncomfortable. We also had a few rainy days and being in these cars made a difference, we would breeze right through all the mud and holes (not the vans!!). We also visited a typical Masai village and it was quite the eye-opening and humbling experience for us and our teenagers. We spent two hours with them understanding their customs, looking at their living conditions and meeting the people. Our kids were in awe of how different they live their lives and left more appreciative of how lucky and privileged they are. They all commented on how happy all the Masai seem, despite their simple living conditions. Certainly a lesson to be learned for all of us. Finally, the highlight of the trip was the hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara. You DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS! You get to see the sunrise as you are taking off and you also get to see so many animals from up above running and interacting with each other. It’s a completely different view point from the game drives which only allow you to see the animals from the main tracks. Word of advice, try to plan this for a day with as few clouds as possible to get the best views. Look at the weather a few days ahead and schedule the ride for the best day. A final kudos to our other guide in Masai Mara

I booked quite late (in April for a July trip) for 9 days luxury safari in Kenya. The price was very reasonable compared to quotes I had received from other sites for a similar or even lesser itinerary. Some of the original lodges were not available due to the late booking but Anne was great at sourcing alternatives. For Masai Mara, none of the three accommodations recommended by Amazing Memories had room; only one place had one room left which was Keekorok Lodge and was the only accommodation we felt let down by and lacking compared to the others so I strongly recommend booking well in advance to ensure that you get Amazing Memories original recommended accommodation. We especially liked the Serena and Sarova camps/lodges. Peter was our driver and guide and very accommodating with our taking of pictures and he was always diligently searching out animals and different angles where we might take better pictures. He would tell us facts about the animals and even tidbits of Kenyan history and we managed to see a great variety as well as the Big 5; I was surprised we managed to see the elusive leopard at all! He always made sure we were comfortable on our journeys and with unscheduled toilet stops. I travelled with my mum (late 60s -driving safari is fine for older people as long as one could describe them as 'sprightly') and would like to go again with friends, especially as I was unable to bring a bridge camera as I had originally intended. I was able to take fantastic pictures with my phone but there were lots more opportunities that were missed without better zoom. Having visited Amboseli, Ol Pejeta, Samburu, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara, I think Amboseli was my favourite simply for the sheer number of wildlife and variety that it was impossible at any point to not be looking at an animal. If I ever go another safari, I think I would probably just do Amboseli, Ol Pajeta and Masai Mara as you would still be able to see all the animals you would like to be able to see on safari and you can focus spending more time there on taking good pictures and watching the animals interact, rather than crossing off a spot-the-animal tick list. Hopefully I will be able to come again and I will definitely book with Amazing Memories.

We began planning our African Safari 9 months in advance. In looking for a tour company to use, we found Amazing Memories Safaris and we are very glad we chose them! From the beginning the quotes, correspondence, answering countless questions etc was all done in a timely manner and everything was well explained. We were given great choices of hotels based upon our budget and in the end we loved all of our accommodations. We had specific places we wanted to see and stay, and Anne made sure we were able to see them all and fit everything in. Our driver James Magi was awesome. He was a wealth of knowledge with all of the animals and places. James made sure that we were comfortable, had cold waters for us each day and knew great places to stop for bathroom breaks. He was able to find all the animals for us and we saw the Big 5 and much more! We highly recommend Amazing Memories Safaris if you are thinking about a trip to Kenya. Booking with them takes the worry out of all the planning and you can focus on having fun!
