We had an amazing safari at Masai Mara thanks to Absolute adventure safaris. Thank you taking the planning burden off our shoulders, the management team was very helpful and knowledgeable to advise us and we had a great experience with tour guide Alex. We look forward to doing this again in June!

Execellent well knowlegeable driver Guide, Sammy took us on a 3 days safari to Amboseli and everything from the organisation to the safari itself worked out very well. Sammy's knowledge of the park enabled us to see cats - lions, leopard and lots of other animals

I've had the worst experience every with Michael from Absolute Adventure Safaris. Here is why I rate them so POORLY: 1) Michael mis-quoted the Maasai Mara package. He made 2 errors in one single email. He made an error regarding the cost of the hot air balloon ride (quoted 100 USD less) and he made an error regarding transportation from Nairobi to Maasai Mara and back (he quoted 36 USD instead of 360 USD). When I reached Nairobi, I had to pay at the actual prices which completely threw my budget for the trip...One would expect that when you are sending a quotation email to the client you check it thoroughly. How can you make such grave mistakes - that too two mistakes in one single email. I didn't have a choice but had to go with him since I was a solo traveler. 2) The van they sent was of pathetic quality. The only awesome thing about organizing the Maasai Mara trip through this company was the driver that they sent. His name was Sammy and he was totally awesome. But the van had super uncomfortable seats and a terrible suspension. 3) Another financial error: they ended up swiping my card thrice for a cab service. So I ended up paying 135 USD for a cab hire that would cost 45 USD. When I reached India I checked with my bank and they informed me that all three transactions have gone through. This was on 9th July and I am STILL following up with Michael to refund / provide supportings from his bank regarding the refund of my additional 90 USD but Michael seems to busy to respond. I am thoroughly angry and dissappointed with him and his company. NEVER AGAIN will I use any service from Absolute Adventure Safaris.

Above all avoid this company it offers safaris with valves that are not maintained and not adapted. We had an accident that almost cost us our lives. The valve brakes were not overhauled and released when the engine stalled. We went down the slope and the valve turned around. One of the seat belts failed and a passenger was ejected. Neither our valve nor the replacement valve were 4x4s. The services are not expensive but dangerous for a safari. The equipment is outdated and not maintained. Take serious company, don't turn your vacation into a nightmare like us. Visiting the parks is great, hospitals and the police station, much less in Africa.
