We have joined 8 days tour :
NairobiI – Amboseli – Lake Naivasha – Sailing Safari/Crescent Island/Hell's Gate – Lake Nakuru – Masai Mara.

Our guide, Joseph Mbote, has been really great and very professional.
He can handle everything well and also knows what he shouldn't do either.
He respects animals, environments, surroundings, and do not take risks which quite some companies do and end up with some troubles and wasting their times.
Joseph has a very big numbers of experiences in Safari tours and has a great knowledge about all the animals.
Not only animals but also he can explain well about current situation in Kenya, politics, history, Kenyan cultures, education, other African countries and more.
We are very satisfied with our Safari tour and we really recommend new comers to experience like we did!
Maybe you need to have a luck to see all kinds wild animals and luckily, we were able to see all of them!
It is not only because of a luck but also because of Joseph!
We appreciate him a lot!
There are many other Safari companies offering tours though we strongly recommend Natural World Kenya Safari tour!
Price can be higher than the other companies however it is worth it.
Majorities of cheaper companies take you with the vans (or very old Jeeps...) and we often see the problems stuck into the mad and Joseph had to rescue them sometimes with his Jeep.
(but no worries- while he has been rescuing, we never got bored: we had chances to find other rare wild animals too ;)
Natural tour takes the best Jeeps and inside there were binoculars, little desk for putting Things, Drinks etc. Very convenient.
It is not because we took a private tour but we felt inside the Jeep was very spacious and comfortable.
As a Japanese we are very keen to be punctual regarding the time. Joseph always has been there for us before the time and welcomes us with his smiles all the time.
We sometimes got confused which animals they are and had to ask Joseph the same questions several times though he always repeated for us and has been patience.
He is super friendly, helpful and generous.
We are very happy that our guide was Joseph and this Natural World tour!

Last but not the least, the booking processes for the tour including several inquiries were very easy and very helpful as contact manager, Maurine, was responsive to our questions and concerns that we had about a Safari tour.

I am back home now but we really miss the time in Kenya.
We will never forget this wonderful experience.
I can't wait to take the same tour again in the future,
of course with Natural World Kenya Safaris!!

First of all: We highly recommend Natural World Kenya Safari - we had a great private 10 days safari with them.
The communication with the contact manager Duncan went very smoothly and he helped us a lot with all the booking etc. On our safari in Kenya our tour guide & driver was Bonaya Shari - we had a good time with him. In Tanzania we received a new tour guide, Salu (SG Tanzania Tours and Safaris). He was great too and we spent the whole time in Tanzania with him.
The value received for the price paid is beating all compeditors we could find.
They organized very accommodation, every park-fee entry was paid, we had enough water on the Jeep etc. The Safari Jeep was spacious, clean and very good for spotting animals. Unfortunately, the charging spots in both cars were not working.
All Accommodations on our safari were overall very good. Some of them were outstanding and very authentic for the countries. One or two were very nice but located a bit abroad from the parks (Maasai Mara for example).
BUT To sum up, we had a great time. THANK YOU for this amazing experience through both countries, we can highly recommend it to everyone.

Although we contacted them just a few days before the safari, our manager Pauline organised it very quickly and we could have a wonderful time.
Our guide Chris a cheerful and tough guy, he drove while joking but carefully. First of all, he showed us Leopard!, all big5 +black rhino and more in 3days. On the 2nd day, He took us to a 'special restaurant' and we had lunch box under a big tree in the middle of savanna near the border of Tanzania.
We enjoyed the open roof land cruiser safari so much, standing so long that we still felt the building moving even came back to the lodge. The jeep is beautifully decorated, good condition and very comfortable. Actually it's necessary for that bumpy and maddy road.
Our accommodation Mara Engai Lodge is located on the edge of Mara Triangle, on the cliff, the view from there is spectacular. The staff is very friendly with good service, food (including a bush dinner) is delicious, the gorgeous tent is relaxing and has everything. We had an unforgettable experience hearing the sound of cowbells in the darkness about 4am, of Masai, permitted to walk through the park on every 2week Saturday to feed cows soil with salt.
We paid $850/pp for this 2night3days luxury private safari, it's worthwhile to repeat, if you have more people, more reasonable. Everything's included beside extra drinks, the jeep even has Olympus binoculars. We appriciated Masai Shuka blankets given as a gift to use during safari(you can remind the guide if he forgets about it), and it should be noted on Trip advisor's page that it's also included the payment.
Here is a suggestion about lunch on the first day, the first day's lunch was at 4:30pm before checked-in the lodge.Probably because the lodge is so far from the gate that impossible to get there around lunch time then the guide decided to have safari on the way instead of evening. But we should have been informed it. In this case, lunch box would be a good idea to feed these 'hungry lions'.

My husband and I had an amazing experience with this tour company, their staff, and what they offered to us. When booking the trip I worked with Esther who promptly returned my emails and made the entire booking process so easy. We chose a 3 night/4 day safari visiting Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru, and then to the Masai Mara. All we can say is, “WOW!” Our tour guide, Ken, was accommodating to our needs and extremely informative. He went above and beyond to make sure we saw the big 5 and more. Thanks Ken! What an incredible experience that we will never forget.

We came back end february from our first trip to Kenya, that included a 6D/5N safari with Natural World Kenya Safaris, visiting Amboseli, Lake Naivasha & Hells Gate, and Masai Mara. My review will not include listing of all the animals we saw as there were plentiful so just say we were NOT disappointed. The focus will be on how impressed we were on the company service. We did the Economy option and still the service and accommodation level was very high. We booked the trip directly at the company and Henry was very helpful the whole way in the administration process. The payment through Pesapal that I was not familiar with worked fine. We were informed 2 days in advance of who to pick us up at the airport and the driver was waiting for us at arrival. We had chosen to get a nights sleep in a hotel before starting the safari, so the next morning we were picked up at the agreed time by Philip our guide for the safari. He was just an amazing guide. Knowledgeable, good humor, and listening to our wishes and did everything to make sure we kept the schedule. Some roads in Kenya is really poor and with a lot of heavy traffic making it a challenge to get from park to park, but Philip handled that to perfection and we were feeling very secure all the way. On our way back the owner even called to hear if we had a good trip. After the safari we had 3 nights at a hotel in Nairobi and the company still offered transport to the airport! Just good service! Again Henry informed us which driver would pick us up and he was there at the promised time. So everything described at the company web, was as promised. We can highly recommend Natural World Kenya Safaris. Thanks!!!!

I have booked with Natural World on 3 different occasions and each trip was simply amazing. I was able to travel with Natural World Kenya Safari before and after COVID-19 came to Kenya and the customer service did not change from February 2020 to July 2020. Natural World staff are very professional, had a quick response time, and the company puts their customer first. I appreciated that all costs were included in the pricing unlike other companies where you have to pay the entry fees separately. I never once had to open up my wallet again after I paid for the safari.

The company is doing a great job to assist people with going on safaris but staying safe in the process. My guide took my temperature before getting into the vehicle, they limited my contact with touching the vehicle, carried sanitizer in the vehicle, and we didn't make any unnecessary stops when traveling on the road. We both had on masks the entire time we were in the car and had a good amount of spacing in the 4*4 jeep.

As a solo traveler, it is very important for me to be able to trust the team I will be traveling with. All my accommodations were comfortable and places I could see myself staying in again. The Jeep was spacious, clean and came equipped with binoculars so I could see animals in the distance. I highly recommend this company and will be referring all of my friends to them.

We had an amazing Safari with Natural World Kenya Safaris and I would highly recommend them. Our contact manager Caroline was excellent at helping us to decide what the best package for us was and providing any information we asked for. I really valued her input. Amboseli is an amazing park for seeing elephants and plenty of other animals and birds under the backdrop of Kilimanjaro. We were lucky enough to see lions and a cheetah too. Our safari guide Kim Ngare was so friendly and worked so hard for us to have the best possible safari experience. If I went on safari again in the future I would request for him as a guide! We stayed at Tortilis camp which was more expensive, but for that we received excellent, friendly service, extremely comfortable accommodation, and delicious food and drink. Following our Safari, Natural World Kenya arranged our transfer to the coast (driver to train station, 1st class train tickets and subsequent transfer to our beach accommodation). All transfers were on time, and drivers (especially Ezekiel) were friendly and drove safely.
Overall we had a great trip and I would highly recommend this company .

We had a fantastic 3-night/4-day Masai Mara safari with Kim Ngare as our guide. This was my 6th safari and he is one of the best guides I’ve had! We saw the big 5 in one day which was part luck and big part his willingness to extend the day and take us to far parts of the park where there was more activity. I would highly recommend him as a guide as his positive attitude was joyful and he is very knowledgeable and respectful of the animals. He worked hard to make our trip incredible. Booking with Esther was easy and she provided helpful notes as we decided the right safari for our group. Pricing is straightforward and payment over Pesapal is convenient and secure. Great company!

I only had 3 days in Mombasa but wanted to explore as much as possible in that time. As soon as I contacted the company I had a friendly and informative response and was able very quickly to organise trips through tour manager Martha. A city tour was fascinating with quite a lot of it on foot, while Shimba Hills was a very special place in my opinion, with a wide variety of wildlife to see with the help of driver/guide Ezekiel and reserve guide June, who was very knowledgeable. Tsavo East reserve was an incredible experience, again with the help of Ezekiel. Tours were good value for money, especially as they include entrance fees and good lunches.

Me and my husband have choose a safari for our honeymoon and we have organize everything ourself. Do it with Natural World Kenya safaris was very easy. From the first contact they were very fast to answer and everything was explain very clear, so the communication with them was super easy. Also during the week of safari our contact manager Maurine was available and present by message.
We have choose the week safari in Amboseli, lake Naivasha, lake Nakuru and Masai Mara at luxury level. Choose the accommodation was very easy because all the purpose were beautiful. After our stay, we can confirm that the level of accommodation was excelent. All lodge and camp have great room, food and services.
In consideration of this we can say that the effort quality price of this type Safari is great. In addiction we can say that the Jeep was great, clean and in optimal condition.
The extra value of this service was our driver and guide Sisto, that have many years of safari experienceand know very well all the place that we visit.
Special mansion for him because we find a very bad weather in Maasai Mara (even it was the dry season) and the Condition of the streets in the park was very very bad. So much mud, very difficult to drive. He never stuck in the mud and help many other Jeep stuck. He was a excellent driver.
Also he was always very helpful, kind and on time during game drives and all the moves from one park to the other.

We very recommend this company under any point of view.
We never forget this wonderful experience! Thank you Natural World Kenya, Maurine and Sisto!
