I am so glad that my daughter and I chose Best Camping. We have had the most fantastic time. Everything went smoothly every step of the way. Imraan is a wonderful, kind and professional organiser who truly went out of his way to give us an outstanding experience and unforgettable memories. He arranged 7 days of safaris for us from Tsavo West to Amboseli to Lake Naivasha and on to the Masai Mara, as well as numerous transfers, both in Mombasa and Nairobi.
The accommodation he recommended (with options to upgrade if we wanted) was perfect: Kilaguni Serena (Tsavo), Sentrim (Amboseli), Sopa (Naivasha) and finally, my favourite, Olgatuni Camp (Masai Mara).

Our driver, Marco, was truly excellent and looked after us so well. He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and environment and I really enjoyed talking with him about Kenyan culture.

Pricewise, I was delighted by what Imraan offered us. Our budget was relatively limited, but everything was of a very high standard and I could not have wished for more. I had done a lot of research before booking and seen the huge variety of prices, services and accommodation proposed. Imraan's suggestions suited us perfectly, and what really convinced me was his quick communication, his friendly, helpful attitude, his extensive knowledge and his understanding of our needs.

I recommend Best Camping wholeheartedly, whether you are first time visitors to Africa or have already travelled around this wonderful continent. Finally, I want to thank Imraan and his wife, and Marco, for making our visit so marvellous.

I have used Best Camping in the past, so when I decided to do a custom hotel-based safari for a group of friends it was natural for me to seek them out again. Imraan Nanji created a 15-day adventure for me that was amazing and well priced for the length of the trip. We just returned home and will be talking about our experiences for some time to come. We had a great ride in several parks with great game viewing. John and Richard were our guides/drivers and did a fantastic job for us. They found us the Big Five and many other game animals. Great photos were had by all. Thank you Imraan for all your help in making this adventure possible. Highly recommend Best Camping.

I had the pleasure to join a 6 days safari tour in Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli with Best Camping and it has been an unforgettable experience. Imraan is very helpful and professional. Before booking the tour, he replied to all my emails, answering exhaustively to all my questions and giving me all the info I needed. Jackson, the driver and tour guide, has been just impeccable. He is a very skilled driver, super knowledgeable about African flora and fauna, and a very nice person to chat with. It has been a great way to explore Kenyan landscapes and wildlife, and I would definitely recommend a tour with this company!

I found Best Camping Tours & Safaris by browsing through the net, and after having checked their website I emailed a first bunch of questions I had for our family trip to Kenya. Right the next morning I not only had my answers but also very good recommendations and a lot more information on traveling in Kenya.

There are many tour operators, but Imraan's 5-star service, friendliness and reliability make all the difference and made the tour 11a to Mt. Kenya, Samburu NP, Lake Naivasha and Masai Mara for our family a once in a lifetime experience.

What can I say? Our driver Chris not only took us to see the big 5, but also cheetahs, jackals, hyena, crocodiles, hippos, gerenuks etc etc. We also experienced the crossing of the Wildebeests and Zebras at the Mara river, the heartbreaking moment a crocodile attacked one of the wildebeests, thousands of wildebeest & zebras migrating. We also had picknick lunches in Masai Mara, another highlight for all of us, especially our kids.

We especially recommend the Simba Lodge in Samburu National Reserve, where you can see elephants from the restaurant, the pool or your balcony. The Olgatuni Camp in Masai Mara was amazing as well: In the middle of the National Park, with a pride of lions and a big hippo family as neighbors, with no fences but Masai People who watch out for you when dining outside under the trees... just wow. In addition to the 11a tour Imraan arranged a balloon flight over Masai Mara - for all of us the ultimate experience.

Imraan: Thanks again a million for your time, your help, your organisation. You put your heart into this, and that makes it so special!

Anther great experience with Best Camping. Our group was all over 76 years of age and Best Camping really looked after us, hire of wheelchair, special steps into vehicle. Proved safaris are not just for the young, we did everything anyone else would, and did it with style!

The vehicle was appropriate and designed for safari work, the preparation and itinerary suited what we wanted to experience The lodges were comfortable and provided good service and tasty meals and the game drives just out of this world.

We could not be more pleased with the entire organisation and conduct of the trip, Nothing was too much trouble for the organisation and it certainly was a highlight of my 81 years!

We had a wonderful safari, Imraan made our safari of a lifetime of what we wanted to see, from the lush Aberdare to the dry Samburu, to the wonderful lakes of Nakuru, Elementaita and lake Naivasha and to the great Savannah of Masai Mara, you see all the diversity of what kenya has to offer.

Imraan is a verry kind man, he is always there to help you with suggestions and talk to you about what your neads are for your vacation in Kenya.

Our accommodation in lodges was verry good, with plenty and good food, we also stayed in Best Camping own Camp for 2 nights, just meters outside Masai Mara, the camp is more basic then a lodge, at the camp i recommend 2 nights if you love real camping, the camp is clean and has some big and some small tents, showers and toilets, dining tent where your Host Steve makes good food.

I my opnion At Best Camping Kenya they dont have drivers they only have Safari guides.

Robert our safari guide is verry kind, with alot of knowledge about all you need to know about the people of Kenya, the country and the animals of Africa, he goes out of his way to give you a great safari experience every day.

Asante Sana Imraan and Robert

I have used this company on more than one occasion and they never let me down. They do custom safaris for me and my group of friends so it takes a lot of thought and work from Mr. Imraan Nanji (General Manager of the company). This last trip was a solo adventure to see the Great Migration from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara. I wanted to photograph it so spent 2 weeks with driver Ben. He knew how to find animals that I wanted to photograph and did a great job of driving the roads of the Mara. On our last day out he took me back to the Mara River to see if we could see a crossing of Wildebeest. Jackpot. We found them. Thanks Ben. And thank you to Best Camping for another great adventure. I'm working on another safari for January 2022 with another group. Best Camping will definitely be doing this one for me also. Thanks Imraan!

Our Kenyan Safari we choose to do with Imraan and best Camping Tours and Safaris as recommended by a friend. This proved to be the best decision of our lives. Imraan is very professional and accessible at all times to answer any and every question we had, taking care of us from pickup at the airport to drop back to the airport. The driver cum guide Robert was extremely safe and has a good eye to spot animals. All our Safaris were very productive and we were able to see all the big cats and the migration to our hearts content. Making sure all through the drive to the various parks and the safaris helping us spot animals while also following rules and keeping us safe this was a fantastic trip. I recommend a Kenyan Safari with Best Camping and tours to everyone keen on seeing animals in natural settings!

An exceptional service provided by Imraan and his team. His response to our query, from picking us at airport to ensuring a safe night in Nairobi all in short time was incredible. He was their with his guide and jeep to pick up us next morning sharp at 7 am. He even ensured to provide us 5 liters of extra water.Ally his shows attention to details. Our trip started and guide was so knowledgeable. It took us 5 hours to reach Maasai Mara and throughout the journey our guide shared information about the plants , animals we saw enroute. He even shared history of Kenya and about the people of Maasai Mara. We reached their and we started our Safari and we managed to see big cats on Day1. Throughout our safari we managed to see all the big cats and other animals. Our guide was so knowledgeable with the roads and he kept sharing details about every animal we saw. This safari was such a success that ,We will remember it as one of our best holidays till date. Leaving to Nairobi we got stuck in traffic Bcoz of an accident however his experience in driving and being aware of the road , he managed to drop us 15 min before the counter being closed. Thank you Imraan for taking such good care of us. I definitely recommend people to choose this Best camping safari and I am gonna come back ✨
