Mufasa Tour and Travels I the real deal!
As a matter I fact, as someone who is in the tourist industry in Florida, I must say I’m impressed.
Everything was so professional handled so everything felt really good from the start, knowing that we only had to pay a down payment, and the rest upon arrival. I knew they took credit cards and that there were tons of Google and Trip Advisor reviews that were all good.
Our driver Anthony had an really service minded attitude for all 6 days, was always looking to make sure we saw the most amount of animals, and we just couldn’t have had a better experience. If you have any hesitation as to what company to book with just call Joseph the owner, and he’ll be able to get everything arranged for you via WhatsApp.
Best,
Lars

Let me start by saying that this was the first vacation I haven't planned myself. I was a bit reluctant to work with a tour operator because I was worried that my itinerary would be too constrained. I was wrong. I was so impressed by Mufasa tours, from planning to the safari itself, the team worked hard to make sure we had the best experience. We booked a private five-day safari to Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru. Lewis helped us customize our itinerary to work around my ever-changing work schedule. 10/10 customer service! The actual safari was wonderful. Nelson, our driver was so kind. He did an excellent job locating animals in the park (we saw all of the Big 5!) and was so accommodating to requests. I would highly recommend a private safari through Mufasa Tours to others.

We had a more than wonderful time on our safari with Mufasa. When I initially started looking to plan a safari, I reached out to multiple different safari companies. A Mufasa rep responded quickly and sent options at different price points. Mufasa let me pull a couple things from the different price points to work with my budget to create a plan that worked for me.
For the first half of the safari we were visiting the Masai Mara and had a driver named Samuel, we called him Sam. Sam was so friendly and welcoming. He took us all over the Masai Mara and was able to show us 4 of the big 5. We were able to see 11 cheetahs, 5 lions, 1 leopard, 3 rhinos, and tons of giraffes, elephants, birds, etc. The drive from Nairobi to the Masai Mara and back is very long, but Sam made it very enjoyable. By the end of the trip we were singing in the car together. Sam’s English was great, he also spoke Spanish perfectly too. He was very knowledgeable on all the animals and was able to answer all our questions.
The second half of the trip we visited Lake Nakuru and Amboseli with a guide named Charles. Charles was very friendly and knowledgeable of all the animals as well. We were able to see the rhinos which completed the big 5 for us. Charles took us all over and was very patient with us and our many questions. He was very knowledgeable about all the animals and changing terrains. Charles took us out on the last day to see the sunrise in Amboseli which was amazing with Mount Kilimanjaro.
All the lodges and parks were beautiful. We used a land rover for half the trip and a safari van the other half to save money. Both were great for viewing the animals. The different parks and reserves were all so beautiful. My husband and I were more than pleased with how easy and carefree the planning was using Mufasa. We have no complaints. Everything went as planned. My husband and I have traveled a good bit, but this trip was one of the best we have ever done.
Do not miss out on the hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara if you can afford it. It was like nothing I have ever experienced. The visit to the village of the Masai Tribe was also very interesting and moving- if you can this is an amazing experience as well.

My partner and I booked with Mufasa after seeing that they did the Nairobi to Mombasa trip over three days which worked out perfectly for our itinerary. From the first email I sent, Joseph's replies were polite, punctual and professional. He happily answered all of our questions and kept us in the loop regarding all stages of our trip. We were pleasantly surprised on several fronts - firstly, that we wouldn't be travelling as part of a group and had the van and guide all to ourselves and secondly that we would be collected from our AirBnB in Nairobi and taken right to the doorstep of our accommodation in Diani. Joe, our safari guide was knowledgable, polite and we really felt like he wanted us to see as much as possible over the three days - even suggesting an earlier start on the last day when we had yet to see a lion (which we then spotted within the hour!). Overall, we had some natural worries before booking the tour which were all summarily dispelled by excellent customer service and a flexible attitude to our other arrangements. Top stuff!

After investingating three Kenyan Safari companies, we chose Mufasa, because Joseph answered all our questions promptly, and we were impressed with is attention to detail. We had a 14 day safari, and visited the following Game Parks & Reserves;
- Meru; Samburu; Ol Pejeta' The Aberdares; Lake Nakuru; Masai Mara; Lake Naivasha; Amboseli; Tsavo West.
Joseph was most helpful in advising whether we needed one, two, or three days at each place, his experience was invaluable.
Accommodation and meals were all inclusive and to a high standard, all game park fees were included in the package.
Our driver/guide Tony was an excellent driver, knew all the parks very well, and was a very nice man. After a very wet seson, sometimes the roads within the Game Reserves and Parks were compromised, Tony handled every situation expertly. He was constantly communicating with other drivers as to conditions, as well as animal sightings. Although the 4wd Land Cruiser was aged, with probably many kms on the clock, Tony drove it very well, and we were on hand to pull other vehicles, usually vans, out of the mud. I would recommend using a Land Cruiser as opposed to the van option. Sometimes travel between Game Reserves is many hours travel, and the Land Cruiser was very comfortable.
In conclusion, I am so glad we decided upon Mufasa Tours and Travel, and do highly recommend them. If I am ever lucky enough to travel to Kenya again, I will certainly be contacting Joseph for advice and bookings.

We had the most amazing safari from start to finish. I just can't put into words what a fantastic experience it was. Our booking process with Dorcus was easy and she answered all of our questions. Our guide and driver was Joseph and we could not have asked for a better guide! He showed us all sorts of sights on the way to the Masai Mara the first day and told us all about the history and culture of the area. The accommodations were great - we stayed the first 2 nights just outside the park at the AA Lodge. The real highlight was the game drives. Joseph told us the first night when we entered the park that we would see the "big five" and in 2 days we saw them all! He was constantly searching and chatting with other guides and on the phone and radio to get us all the best viewings. It was astonishing how close we got to the animals and everything we saw. We also did the hot air balloon add on which was not to be missed! On our way out of the Masai Mara we stopped at a Masai village which was a short trip where we got to see the native culture and dancing and super high jumping! We asked lots of questions and picked up some handmade souvenirs. After leaving the Masai Mara we did a stopover to go on a boat in a lake full of hippos and every kind of bird (amazing) and then to Lake Nakuru. We stayed at Eagle Palace which was a fantastic hotel and then the next day for another game drive at Lake Nakuru. We stayed a little late just so we could get the perfect picture of white rhinos. I would list all of the different types of animals we saw but that would take pages. All I can say is if you're looking for a safari this is the company, incredibly professional, great experience and we'd seen more animals than people we'd met who had been there days longer.

We had an amazing time with Mufasa tours in Tsavo East National Park. From our initial contact, Joseph was super helpful and quick to respond to any questions or queries we had. He helped us create an intinerary to meet what we wanted from the trip, and carried out a last minute change for us due to lockdown restrictions.

Hussein our driver and guide was very knowledgeable, we felt at total ease with him in control, and he had great experience of the park. We saw hundreds of elephants, lions, cheetah, zebras, water buffalo, hippos, crocs, hyenas etc! We hired the 4x4 jeep, would strongly recommend as a few minivans from other tours got stuck, and from a comfort perspective it's better!

We stayed at Ashnil Aruba Lodge which was very nice, you can see animals from the pool and rooms and there was nice selection of dishes at the buffet. Staff were very helpful and it was a nice place to unwind after eventful game drives!

Would highly reccomend Mufusa Tours for their very professional service, they pay great attention to detail and offer trips of a lifetime! We plan on doing more tours with them in the future. Thanks Joseph and Hussein!

In the beginning of March 2021 we were in Kenya for 2 weeks for a bush & beach safari that we booked through Mufasa. We couldn’t have been happier with the organization, the driver, the destinations and hotels! Everything was absolutely top notch! Lewis who organized the tour overall was super responsive, helpful and gave some really good advice & tips to choose the best parks and accommodations. Also, he was very flexible to adjust the tour and the lodges/camps until everything was perfect for us. On top of that he offered the package for a very competitive price, so the price/value was absolutely excellent! The tour itself, the parks we went to and the wildlife we saw was stunning and beyond what we would ever have imagined. Kenya is such a beautiful and diverse country, every park is completely different. Our guide Joe was a very reliable & experienced travel companion who was dedicated to make the best out of every of our safari days! We truly enjoyed our time and conversations with him and learned a lot not only about the animal kingdom but also Kenya and its people. We are very grateful for this amazing experience and will never forget the beautiful time we had in Kenya thanks to Mufasa Tours & Travels.

We had a really incredible experience with Mufasa Tours in 4 days safari in Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha. All these places are beautiful in themselves, but thanks to our guide Hosea - his love for nature and knowledge about it, instinct for the coolest places, sense of humor and excellent driving skills - we were able to truly open them and see absolutely amazing and marvelous scenes from the wildlife.
I highly recommend discovering nature with the guys from Mufasa - they are incredible professionals and really love what they do and you really feel it.

Amazing experience with Mufasa tours. They where the fastest and best priced tours that we had in kenya. we had approached multiple operators but Joseph was the only one responding and helping us out. He was extremely fast in his response with the kenyan touch withch other operators did not provid. ( like less than 1 hour after i sent my emails regardless the hours i would get a response )

We had had a private tours of 6 days taking us at amboseli + nakuru + masai. All was included Car + lodge + food + water + extra internet in the car.

When reaching the airport we where welcomed on the spot by Joseph who had taken us directly to our Car and the Famous Dan our Guide and driver and spotter ( we seriously believe that he has xray eye as he was able to spot animal through the bushes ).

Dan was an amazing tour guide/driver/spotter/superman we where able to see wonderful animal and scene. we even felt as if he had paid the animal to pose for us or to wait for us. We had seen everything we wanted to see and even more than that. Dan was a wonderful driver with a lot of story and information to provide with that smile all the time.

Amazing your operator we would totally recommend them. And if we ever come back they would be our only contacts there.
