We were returning to Africa and wanted to go on safari again with the help of Best Camping Tours & Safaris, the same company we booked with in 1995. We were delighted to work with Imraan, the son of the owner we worked with originally. Imraan asked us a few key questions and in no time put together an itinerary that fit our goals and timetable. He arranged an amazing safari experience, smooth transport and a fantastic lodge accommodation. He recommended traveling to Maasai Mara by small plane as the weather had made the roads difficult for travel. It not only saved us time, because we likely would have been stuck on the roads as other travelers were, but it also added immensely to the experience - the flight was spectacular. The private guide Imraan arranged at Maasai Mara grew up in the area and was intimately familiar with everything and every place in the park. The lodge Imraan booked, Keekorok, was wonderful. The staff treated us so well. The lodge was spotlessly clean, and the food was outstanding, with a huge variety of dishes and loads of fresh fruit and vegetables. But it was the setting that stood out. it was an oasis, with a variety of animals nearby and even walking through the grounds. The hippo pool with viewing tower was captivating.
We can't say enough about the impeccable service and value of Best Camping Tours and Safaris. We will definitely look forward to booking with the company again in the future.

Had a really wonderful and memorable time with Joseph who is our guide as well as driver. Very friendly and knows his way around, with his perseverance, we were able to see Africa Big 5 with our own eyes.

Imraan was very professional and answers every pre-trip questions timely and accurately. We even had a briefing right before the start of the safari so that everyone is on the same page and to clarify any questions we may have.

Very professional service and I will highly recommend their service to anyone looking for a wonderful safari adventure in Kenya

The tour to Kenya was more than satisfaction, excitement and 'recharging' for everybody who love Nature, Animals and Birds (fauna & flora of a real JUNGLE).
BCTS is not simply a 'Professional' entity, but a 'Very Personal Touch - Organization'. All arrangements during our (all of us in the age group of 60 to 73) ten days' tour, were excellent and absolutely haselfree.
One need not worry about stay, facilities, food, conveyance and everyday timetable. The Owners, Managers, Co-workers, hotel - staff were very affectionate.
The Owners were really concerned for our wellbeing throughout our stay till departure. No words to express our satisfaction for the tour as a whole, towards the Owners Mr. Shiraj & Mr. Imran Nanji who took care of us with real affection, wholeheartedly. Especially our Driver Mr. Ben was a wonderful personality; being very alert, sober, enthusiastic, expert in locating right spots during game drives, and very patient too! Our manager Mr. Thomas was a great help to us at all difficult times.
Camera (any type), Binoculars are 'a must'.
Our short visit of total 14 days (3 days in Masaimara) was so memorable, that we had our 'Lifetime Experience' which everybody must have at least once!
GO KENYA ONLY WITH BEST CAMPING TOURS AND SAFARIS AND ENJOY!!!!!

Once can bank on Best Camping Tours & Safaris for their meticulous planning & execution. They take care of individual food preferences. Our Guide Ben is a walking encyclopedia of wild life & Manager Thomas is very helpful. Ben knows the art of locating choicest wild life and positioning the vehicle to make great viewing. He is patient, well behaved and does not loose temper. He took care of us, all senior citizens very well. Owners Mr. Sheraj Nanji & imran Nanji are one of the best tour operators we have come across. I needed camera cushion and a tripod. I could count on Imran to help me out. Imran & his team, particularly Ben made our trip from April 6 to April 15 this year, a life time experience for all of us, from India. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Best Camping Tours & Safaris to anyone planning a safari in Kenya. Their choice of hotels at Amboseli, Aberdare, Nakuru & Masai Mara was par excellence. Food at all places was too good, including the arrangement of packed lunch boxes. Best truly lives up to their name.
