Thank you to Best Camping for allowing us to afford a trip to the Maara and to see the migration. Without this budget option, it would not have been possible for us. The camping site is as basic as it can be (a patch of land with small tent, mattress, blanket, no pillow, very 'rustic' bathrooms etc.) so don't expect more in terms of facilities, but you can be sure to have the MOST incredible, friendly and helpful team looking after you! The food was delicious and plentiful, we felt safe and well cared for at all times (even when we were the only two guests on the tour), our guide Peter was very knowledgeable and made every effort to help us see all our viewing wishes, and all in all this was a real bucket list experience.

Family of 5 with kids 12,10 and 7. Best Camping went above an beyond to make our holiday great and assist us in any way. Joseph our driver was wonderful, full of knowledge and a real gentle soul. Perfect mix of basic camping and luxury camping. Masai was exceptional for the animals. We felt safe travelling through Kenya with Joseph providing that sense of security. Van is basic but very comfortable. We played cards on an esky during the long drives. Trip of a lifetime and would do it again if money permitted. If you are thinking of going on safari with Best Camping - just do it! You will not regret it.

We did a 4 days tour with Best Camping Tours. They planned everything for us from Airport pickup to Airport Drop and everything in between while giving us very personalised service and taking care of all our special requirements.

On the very first day, we had a problem with Airline and we arrived very late in Nairobi which they handled very gracefully. With reference of them, we managed to get a very good discount on our Hotel - when i say very good it means much below the standard rate of that room on that night - almost half the price.

We went to Masai Mara with private Safari Car for two nights. Local arrangements were outstanding and we truly experienced the thrill of living in the wild, in a tent! Caretakers were extremely polite, caring & well cultured. they showed us around all the wild animals; within few hours we managed to see all the big 5's" - seriously I am not joking, all the big 5's. It looked like the tour guide was so seasoned and knew every bit of national park that he took right at the spot where those animals could be found. Other day, we witnessed a hunt as well. Local Masai guards, who guarded our tent at night, were amazingly sweet and surprisingly good at English. They took special care of our dietary requirements as well.

They also showed us a local masai village (you can find those amazing videos and photos on my instagram account) and gave briefing about traditions and way of living.

We went to Lake Nashiva for one night with same car and then our back to Nairobi. Driver cum Guide, Mr. John, was so eager to help us when we made a request to have some photos in tea farms. At the same time, he was very protective about our safety.

No doubt, this was one of our best adventurous trip and this team made it even more interesting and unforgettable. Did I forget to mention value for money? Yes, we got best value for our money and let me mention here that we were having economy budget.

To all those, who are seeking adventure in Safari Capital of Africa, should stop right here on this page and no need for further internet browsing - Just go with this company - You won't regret it!

Have fun,

Maroof
