    Black Santa is a legend! He arrived early for the pick up, kept me up to date on where and what we were doing, took me to an additional place (homemade bead store) since one location was not yet open yet and could easily identify every animal we saw in the park. I was very impressed with that kind of knowledge and he was super laid back and nice the entire time. 10/10 experience!

    This Safari was incredible. Our driver and guide, Nathan, was knowledgeable about the animals and was very kind to us. He has an impressive ability to find the animals you have an interest in and provides all the time you need for photos and observations. The teamwork between him and the other guides to find the animals is impressive as well; they communicate over CB radio. When we would join another vehicular to watch a cheetah moving her kittens or Lions mating, Nathan was respectful of other groups but would also position our land cruiser so that we could see quite well.
    Nathan has been doing this for 10 yrs; we could definitely tell. His predictions of what animals were doing or were about to do was impressive. He also found a leopard for us, which is apparently quite rare in the Maasai Mara; what a beautiful animal.
    The Land cruiser has UV protected windows (so nice when you’re from Alaska and not used to this degree of sunshine.) It was also clean and has pretty awesome suspension in comparison to another land cruiser we were in the previous week. The padding is in good condition as well, so there were less bruises :) standing to get a better view while trucking down the bumpy Mara roads was pretty fun too.
    The accommodations we chose were through Simba & Oryx Nature camp. It was quiet, very close to the park and quite beautiful. They truly position the tents in a way that provides seclusion. The people here incredibly friendly, the masseuse, Winnie, is wonderful to talk to, very talented and kind. The chef makes incredible food, probably the best I’ve had in Kenya so far.
    The balloon safari company that Perfect Wilderness Safaris Utilized was quite good as well; friendly and professional team and pilot. I highly recommend for a magical morning. It’s quite an early time to leave camp (4:20 am) as you have to drive quite a ways into the park to reach the balloons, but worth it. I can’t imagine having a better balloon ride anywhere else. We saw many animals, which is never guaranteed, but we were lucky to see a cheetah and a rare rhino that morning, and again on the ground after landing. There were many balloons taking off in the area at the same time, so it made for some beautiful footage.
    I cannot recommend the company more. We had no plans for the last few days in Kenya and plan to continue to work with this company for those days as well since they have left such a lasting impression. Thank you to Nathan, Everline and Perfect Wilderness Safaris!

    P.S. I booked through email directly to the company, Everline was quite prompt with replies and answers to my questions.

    Amazing day out! Danson was a great guide and driver, despite a heavy downpour all the way there and a long drive - luckily it cleared up just as we reached the park. He was extremely knowledgeable about the animals, not just where and what they were but a lot of interesting facts I didn't know, and very polite about my ignorance.

    There was an amazing variety of animals, and the park is extremely well curated with lots of different habitats. We got very close to a lot of them, including lions and hippos, and Danson really went above and beyond to make sure I saw the lions as I had mentioned that was important to me.

    The lunch was also very good - a variety of curries and other dishes, a salad bar, dessert bar and even a cheese plate, all very nicely made and presented.

    The administration worked very well, being reassuring without being intrusive, and everything was on time (except Nairobi traffic but you can't help that). Danson arrived at my hotel just before the pickup time and built in rest stops both ways, which were needed. The vehicle was clean and well maintained, with a good clearance sunroof for observation, comfy seats with functioning seatbelts and good suspension. I have minor mobility problems and never felt that there was anything I couldn't do, including going up the observation hill, although it would be harder with major mobility problems.

    A definite recommend.

    This was my first trip to Kenya and I had 1 full day in Nairobi and decided to take this tour - so glad I did! Obed was my main guide and was so knowledgeable the time passed there and back really quick. The Masai village experience itself was a lot of fun, you are made to feel really welcome. There’s a very good balance of activities to participate in like beading and milking (for women) and tonnes of information. Obed and Moses took some awesome photos and I’m really grateful to have that! I definitely recommend, and would say to bring some cash for both the Masai men and women as a thank you (you will want to).

    This was o e of the best tours we did while travelling 4 countries in Africa. I highly recommend this tour. The elephant orphanage was so nice to see that they are all rescues and being cared for and will be released into the wild when they are ready!!! You can adopt an elephant for a small fee ( we did this) and you will get updates monthly on your elephant. The giraffe centre was also really great, the giraffes are healthy and happy and you can feed them. It was totally worth the money. Our guide was great as well.

    Gracepatt Ecotours Kenya’s tour guide Stephen was most effective, knowledgeable and personable. He set us up for timely entrance at all stops. We arrived in time to secure the best possible viewing opportunities. He shared interesting information at each location and we felt well cared for. Highly recommend to anyone interested in this tour.

    perfect guide, good food, customised trip just to our liking with good shuttle service from nairobi. the organiser was extremely friendly and treated us like family. all in all, we were spoiled tremendously and "forbidden" to raise a finger to help. our only job was to enjoy the tour. we decided to take the alternative package, meaning sleeping in very well mended tents, so very much in touch with nature. the whole experience - amazing, spiced up by excellent value for money!

    Highlights: Ngorongoro crater - best sunrises ever, animal migration in the Serengeti and Tarangire. We decided finishing after at some hot springs with Kilimanjaro beckoning at us from the distance.

    What a fantastic experience. The keepers are kind and the elephants are so much fun.
    It is a privilege to be able to get so close to the elephants and hear their stories told.

    We booked this the night before we went on the tour and it was very easy and quick to manage. Steve was an excellent guide with a good sense of humor.
