    George and Marimma are the best guides on this earth. And this is one of the two most lion rich habitats on the planet. Come here and you will met the friendliest, most caring, most beautiful lions that will exceed anything you might imagine a safari could be.

    The Giraffes here are so graceful and peaceful. We drove very close to them and were able to watch as close as 3 metres from the van.
    Beautiful!

    Dramatic life & death action with a dozen crocodiles circling the hippos trying to snatch one of the young.

    I spent a weekend at Wageni camp in Nashulai Conservancy. Nashulai Conservancy is among the first indigenous-owned and –managed conservancies in East Africa and funds many community projects and conservation efforts. When I arrived at Nashulai camp I was warmly welcomed. I was staying at Wageni camp which is perched upon a hill, and my tent had a deck which was great for relaxing with endless views of the Mara. The bed was super comfy with an ensuite bathroom and a flush toilet, the shower was nice and hot. I did a tour of the grounds and met their resident Elands which roam the grounds (Africas largest antelope) I was shown where the water filtration system is, which also benefits the community. Food was simple and tasty( I am a Vegan) I went on a game drive to the Maasai Mara National Reserve which is a short drive, and my driver was experienced. After I came back from the Mara, the staff brought tea and cookies to my tent which was a nice touch. The evening I spent around the campfire with all the Maasa staff, one of the reasons I travel is to engage with the locals. I was traveling by myself the staff were all very friendly and took care of me.

    We were really lucky to explore two cheetahs at a very close distance. We saw a massive herd of elephants, enjoying in the swamp and zebras.

    We do not have enough words to explain how great this African safari was. Our safari was a 10 day Kenya and Tanzania. We enjoyed every moment of this safari. When we contacted ToKenya last year, we wanted to see the great migration, the big five, cheetah, elephants, and do hot air balloons. They suggest us this itinerary and it was amazing. Our best moment was witnessing the great wildebeest migration. We were able to camp on both Serengeti and Masai Mara which gave us the best experience. Our guide was very smart. He always knew the best time and place to go so as we could capture the right moment. I will never forget the migration. I must be back in Kenya for more. We spent 2 days at Amboseli as well, and food, camps, guides all were 10/10.

    I was nervous to do my first balloon ride but they made me feel very safe! The views were spectacular and the ride was smooth. The landing was a bit bumpy but this was expected. Highly recommend if time and money allows for it!

    We just finished our 8 day private safari tour from Nairobi to Arusha and are incredibly thankful for the amazing service we’ve received.

    Fred has been outstanding to communicate with. This trip was initially booked for August 2020 but due to Covid we had to postpone a couple of times. Fred answered all my questions as I’d check in with him occasionally and he told me all he needed would be 2 weeks notice for our arrival.

    We booked our flights 2 weeks before our arrival and Fred came through with amazing lodges, incredible service and even better drivers. Kizito was our driver in Kenya and my son (7) was very sad when we had to say goodbye. Tsaba, our driver in Tanzania was also amazing. Both drivers were great with engaging our kids (7 and 10), asking if we needed bathroom breaks, ensured we always had enough bottled water, and answered all of our questions about the culture and animals. Best of all, between the two of them, they made it their job to help us track down the Big 5.

    We highly recommend East Africa Adventure Tours. Thank you!!

    My grandson and I did a 14 days tour of Kenya and Tanzania including Zanzibar. starting 15th July 2019. Mr. O was very good in communicating and the tour was well organised as a whole. My only complaint was the driver/guide in Kenya but at least he covered all the parks as given in our itinerary.
    The hotels were good and we were very lucky in seeing the big five plus the migration.
    It is sad to see that since then the company has gone into bankruptcy and many clients have been left out of pocket.
